Thousands of Flowers Fall
Thousands of Flowers Fall
mixed on panel

This title refers to a Zen koan from zen master Dongshan:

For whom do you bathe and make yourself beautiful?
The cry of the cuckoo is calling you home.
Hundreds of flowers fall, yet her voice isn’t stilled,
even deep in jumbled mountains, it’s calling clearly.

—PZI Miscellaneous Koans, Case 52
