Raven 20: Bedrock Buddha

Isn't our tribe the best? Aren't other, different tribes also the best? How do we negotiate the tension between loyalty to our own tribe and compassion and respect for other tribes?

Once a disciple of Yogi Rhino sent Raven a message, saying, "You just have a stone outcropping to represent the Buddha Macaw. You should come over here and meet a living Buddha."
Raven mentioned this in a talk and said, "If that disciple stays on with Yogi Rhino, she might realize that living Buddhas are all over the place, and yet our bedrock stands forth alone."
Signifier and signified
All over the place, standing alone.
My finger points to the moon, yes,
Also, the moon points to my finger.
Case by Robert Aitken; introduction and verse by Meredith Garmon
