Day 47 – Flowers of every color, fruits of every taste

The memorial pagoda of Seon Master Doui 道義 (died 845), who was a grand-disciple of Mazu Daoyi, and is considered the founder of the Korean Buddhist Jogye Order. This pagoda is over on the east coast, near Sokcho, and used to be almost unknown, although the area isn’t remote at all. (It’s on the edge of Seoraksan National Park, but just outside the city of Sokcho.)

All Buddhas,
may ten thousand flowers bloom,
and ten thousand fruits ripen.
Let me know their true taste!
