Blog this Trip (19): More Golden Buddhas

Speaking of golden buddhas: HERE is what that whole “gold-Buddha” tradition is pointing straight onto: the shining light of our original nature, in this case named “Homa” and “Yogi”.

These are the two golden souls who invite me back, year after year. Homa founded Zen Book and Music in Oslo as the first bookstore dedicated solely to Eastern meditations and teachings. They have brought countless teachers to Oslo, and they continue to put great efforts into arranging these retreats and talks. In addition, they both lead the weekly Zazen sessions in the Dharma Room. They have done intensive retreat work at Zen Center Regensburg on several occasions, and they travelled to Regensburg to attend the Opening Ceremony and meet with Dae Bong Sunim in 2016.

Many many words could be written about our relationship, its sacred meaning to me and its impact on my life.

But silence is best — I’ll let this picture speak for it.

After the guests have left tonight, and they have cleaned up the Dharma Room, it’s time to head home. I notice that Homa and Yogi are both wearing matching NY Yankees caps, and ask to take a shot.
