Maitreya & Amitabha Buddhas as the Ho-Ho Twins as Han-shan &  Shih-te

in my pujasthan at home….

a poem by Han-shan (Cold Mountain)

Bird-song drowns me in feeling.

Back to my shack of straw to sleep.

Cherry-branches burn with crimson flower,

Willow-boughs delicately trail.

Morning sun flares between blue peaks,

Bright clouds soak in green ponds.

Who guessed I’d leave that dusty world,

Climbing the south slope of Cold Mountain?
