The Venerable Master Sheng Yen died yesterday at Dharma Drum Mountain complex in Taiwan.
Busy with nothing, growing old.
Within emptiness, weeping, laughing.
Intrinsically, there is no “I.”
Life and death, thus cast aside.
by Venerable Master Sheng Yen
Several years ago the venerable one came to Throssel and talked with the monks. Sadly I was away at the time. I admire him and his teaching greatly and offer my thoughts for those in East Asia and in the West who continue his lineage.
