Beginners Mind

A woman with a pram, stuck in snow, in Denmark, with a story to tell, and a message about beginners mind.

First/beginners mind
is the widest
and most completely
fathomless.
Even if Buddhas
explain it fully
such explanation
will never be enough.

A verse from the ordination ceremony.

Turned out that I had dropped my credit card and the poor man was just trying to catch up to me to return it!
