Vows are empty
They cannot be seen, tasted, smelled, touched, or thought.
My vows vows provide form for my life.
Perhaps they are the cause and I the effect…
and that this is why I received them.
Dai Shin is the name given me by my teacher. Dai Shin is translated as Great Heart. Great does not mean good, but refers to spaciousness, vast space. Shin means heart and mind, just one word for both. For me, Dai Shin is not a name. It is a path.
