How To Go To The Tao Temple

Don't lock the door.
Go lightly like the leaf in the breeze
along the dawn's valley.
If you are too fair,
cover yourself with ash.
If too clever, go half-asleep.
That which is fast
will tire fast:
be slow, slow as stillness.

Be formless like water.

Will he turn into a Taoist preacher? Reminding us of Sankrityayan and Baba Nagarjuna. The Lotus Temple not, the Tao temple is his last refuge.

Marvellous poem. Quite profound. Inimitable imagery and construction.
