Returning from the Bathroom by Woo-Young Yang

Although I sometimes wear the Tathagatha teaching

In my attachment to kinhin

This time I forgot to wear it

Thank Buddha that the Tathagatha teaching

Was just where I left it

Waiting for me to pick it up again

No loss no gain

Although bathroom breaks are inevitable

And kinhin is important

Let us strive to awaken, awaken

Take heed! And remember to wear

The Tathagatha teaching together

Woo, April 2016
