The Chair

The Chair – a teaching on Emptiness (thank you, Prapto)


The chair is not one.

The chair is many parts.

The parts are made of tree, but

the tree cannot be found in the parts.

The chair was made, but

the maker cannot be found in the chair.

The chair cannot be found in any of the parts.

The parts are not the chair.

No parts, no chair.

No chair, no parts.

What is the chair?


The chair is bodhisattva

offering itself to you

for rest.
