vale Daido, Roshi

Dharma Wheel

John Daido Loori, Roshi, has left us. He died on Friday morning.

Gratitude for this extraordinary being and all that he gave to us.

“Tears like falling petals …”


John Daido Loori, Roshi


Deep within wild flowers,
Partridges cry out.
Tears like falling petals
Blow in the Wind.
Eternally and Everlastingly,
It is Revealing Itself.
Above the Bare Branches,
Whistling at the Moon, Playing in the Clouds,
The Golden Phoenix Soars hand in hand with
Dharma Brother Daido.
