Lions Roar : September 2015
SHAMBHALA SUN SEPTEMBER 2015 57 1 In Zen’s famed 10 oxherding pictures, the ox is enlightenment and the herder is you, the meditator. Created by 12th- century Chinese master Guo-an Shi-yuan, the oxherding pictures have mapped the path for Buddhist practitioners ever since, inspiring countless commentaries and new renderings. Here is a contemporary take by graphic artist MARK T. MORSE, with commentary by Boundless Way Zen teacher JOSH BARTOK and a Vajrayana perspective from the late CHÖGYAM TRUNGPA RINPOCHE. 1. Searching. Here we become aware of our spiritual questions, perhaps Where can I be free from suffering? WhoamI?Whydoesithurtsomuchtobeme?Howcan there be such evil? or What is my True Nature? We may be motivated by fear of death—or fear of life. This is raising the mind of enlightenment. Chögyam Trungpa’s Comment: The inspiration for this first step, which is searching for the ox, is feeling that things are not wholesome, some- thing is lacking. That feeling of loss produces pain. You are looking for whatever it is that will make the situa- tion right. You discover that ego’s attempt to create an ideal environment is unsatisfactory.
