The Ten Oxherding pictures tell the story of awakening and realization of the true self in the tradition of Zen Buddhism. The beautiful illustrations here are from the walls of the Hall at the Mu Sang Sa Temple in Korea, with the kind permission of International Zen Center's Abbot Dae Jin. The whitening of the ox indicates awakening to our true nature. Accompanying each picture is a description that sets the basic tone for each stage, followed by a translation of the poems from the twelfth century Zen monk Kuòān Shīyuǎn , who revised and expanded upon a traditional Taoist tale of the ox and the oxherd. To use these pictures as they were intended, you need to relate them to your own life - but dont worry about where you are in the stages...the first one will do if you're really there. - May you find peace and happiness...
