The Diary of Prince Fusu

The Diary of Prince Fusu

Postby Arjan Dirkse » Mon Apr 14, 2014 7:14 pm

I wrote a series of poems which were partially inspired by Buddhism, and also by my love for traditional Chinese culture. I made it into a little booklet which is for sale on lulu, here.

I put up some samples of the poems here, on a tumblr blog

This poem in particular was inspired by my Buddhist experience:

Buddha Nature, Nothing Special
Just a handful of stars floating along
The Mind’s self-less night sky,
Whence we came, what we still are

To hear the river singing underground
The Name that Calls, Calls
Myself by Its Real Name:
Namo Amituofo.
