Buddha's Enlightenment Day Poem - 1993  

An eminent teacher said
"Enlightenment and unenlightenment
are merely empty name."

The Buddha saw a star, got enlightenment.
What did he get?

Did you see a star?
What did you get?
Where is your enlightenment star?
In the sky?
In Hollywood?
On top of a Christmas tree?
Up, down; north, south; east, west?
Always in front of you?
Do you see it?
Tell me, tell me!!!

KATZ!!!

Bright stars lighten up the night sky.
Bright faces lighten up the dharma room
