NaPoWriMo Day 7: Sogyanandi realising that the assembley was filled with pride

Days 6 through 12 were all written where I had no access to the internet so please find them here retrospectively.

This was inspired by reading the zen text, Denkoroku.

Sogyanandi realising that the assembly was filled with pride

You hurry down the path
seeking to wrench your lotus
from the mire of the defilements.
Do you not see the shrine you build
to a delusive self of spiritual prowess,
with candle, flower and incense?
When you revere your teacher
remember to see the WE
and know that I is not this WE.
Realise the arahant can be scholar or serf
and that attainment too is emptiness.
