This drawing was created by my daughter on her iPhone (or iPad). She posted it on my Facebook page and I thought I would share it here.

This is a drawing I did which is based on a drawing by the great Japanese swordsman Tessho.

Buddha Nature

What is Buddha Nature? We all have it. Is it similar to the inner Christ? For me, my Buddha Nature allows me to be a kind person, looking out for others. As a martial artist I think that it is important to keep this in top of mind.

A couple of years ago I was at a party and a friend told another person there that I was a martial artist. This other person asked if I could kick his ass, to which I replied: “I don’t know. Maybe, maybe not. But it does not matter at all to me. What does matter is that I know that if someone were to attack you or anyone else here I would be willing to give my life to protect you.” Is this Buddha Nature? To a Samurai or a Chinese warrior that lived wu de (martial morality) it would be.

What is your Buddha Nature?

The void.

Welcome to the Void

Mu-shin. No Mind.

The void.

The void.

How do we empty our minds in our daily lives?

As a martial artist it is important for me to not “think” about what I am doing next. In the Book of Five Rings by Miyamoto Musashi he devotes an entire chapter on the void. We must be in the moment at all times. Whether in our family life, our spiritual life, our work life or our play life. The Samurai lived every day as it were their last. They lived in the present, and existed in the void.

This is a drawing I did of Bodhidharma (Tamo), credited as being the founder of Shaoliin Kung Fu.

Damo

Bodhidharma, or Damo (Tamo) in Chinese, is the patron saint of Shaolin Kung Fu. I call him the patron saint, but he was actually the

This drawing is my homage to Damo.
