The Awakening Soup

As ingredients are added to the brew, a chef will regularly plunge the ladle in the pot and keeps an eye on the overall texture.

Through the practice of kinhin, the layout and movement of this walking meditation allows the master to cross each of his disciples and feel the flavor of his mind. Then, he brings him a pinch of his secret condiment.

The one who is walking in the square circle of kinhin comes out seasoned with an undefinable ingredient.
Out of the tip of his wisdom, he stirs the soup of disciples.

At the center, the Buddha sits,
Flavorless, for he contains all flavors,
He wisely witnesses the eternal recipe.

Under the fire of candle flames,
In the landscapes drawn by the smoke of incense,
The awakening soup simmers.
