All This Nonsense
Gautama experienced a profound shift,
Gave birth to Buddhism.
But when Gautama died, in no time at all,
About “true” Buddhism…
And there arose, from one View, many.
So it seems, with all great teachings,
And the arising, from one View, of many.
How vast and varied, expressions of “truth”,
Of capturing The Great Mystery in a jar.
All in the nature of things, it appears,
Within… where long ago in distant lands,
Perhaps we, too, should venture There,
Find out what all this nonsense is about.
