Looking For a Recluse and Finding Him Gone

Below the pines I ask the boy

he says his master has gone to find herbs

he’s somewhere on this mountain

but the clouds are too thick to know where

– Chia Tao,  (799-833)

Bill Porter’s (Red Pine) new book is a meditative tour of the grave sites and homes of China’s greatest poets, another one-of-a-kind journey by America’s most interesting Buddhist scholar and travel writer. It will be published in January 2016.
