how to stitch a robe

 

Ueda Kyoko: 'Her Life' 2010 - Kinushi Silk dyed with red iron oxide, 37.5 x 53 inches

 

She was born into
this extraordinary world;
a living planet,
a dancing of millions of interdependent species,
this mystery that grows us;
flowerings of wonderment, reverence and awe.

It’s what we are.
It’s what we’re in.

It’s who we’re with.
It’s where we are,
and . . .
why we are.

– Tarchin Hearn

 
This is a short introduction to a new essay from eco-poet and Dharma teacher Tarchin Hearn.

Please visit Tarchins’ page to read the entire piece, which echoes back to the traditional practice of making one’s own robe (kesa) on ordination.
