Teaching the Dharma to all who walk by

I attend college in Poultney Vt. About everyday I sit in zazen on a hill where people frequently pass by. Sometimes people come up to me and ask questions about meditation and the practice of mindfullness but other times I simply preach by smiling and saying no words at all to those who walk by. I also practice this on the steps of the dining hall. I wrote a poem on the experience. The Step SutraStraight spine on the stairsPillars, lotus womb andBodies grooved into their rightful points of theuniverse. A passerbyasks “What are you doing?”I smile spine erectreply “just sitting here.”Not useless babble but compassionate sermon!My sermon my sutraSmile at all the passerbyRevolve around your heart
