On the train tonight, I was reading the book I have been reading for the 102 days (1 page per day) on John Cage and Zen Buddhism. I was trying to make sense of this semi-indecipherable section on the Heart Sutra and the Flower Sutra. The gist of it as expressed by Avalokiteshvara to his student Shariputra:
Oh Shariputra, form is no other than emptiness; emptiness no other than form. Form is exactly emptiness; emptiness exactly form. Sensation, conception, discrimination, awareness are likewise like this.
which leads to the mantra
Gone beyond [delusions]! Gone beyond [the ignorance of samsara]! Gone beyond! Gone to the other shore! Awakened!
And then the train came to a stop and the doors opened, and I soon as I got off, I noticed that for the first time in my 115 days here, I had gotten off at the wrong station, one station beyond, and were it not the end of the line, who knows where I would have gone beyond that.
