    "Love it!! Great sturdy mug and best of all, made in USA!!!"

    - Kinley P.

    This zen calligraphy masterpiece by Zen Master Shuho Myocho (1282-1337) is called "Sermon." The original is in the collection of the MOA Museum of Art.

    Before accepting students, Shuho lived for 20 years among the indigent, beggars, and street people of Kyoto, all to deepen his understanding before sharing his transmission. He taught his students to seek their "original face." He also taught that awakening is more important than any other spiritual activity.

    "The original face you had before you were born from your mother and father! Before you were born of your mother and father means before your mother and father were born, before Heaven was separated from Earth, before you took on human form. You must see your original face."

    Shuho died at age 56. A few years earlier, he had sustained a leg injury that prevented him from sitting in the traditional meditation positions. But at his death he forced his legs into the lotus position, breaking the bone. Although he was bleeding and in severe pain, he serenely picked up his calligraphy brush to compose his death poem:

    "I have cut off buddhas and patriarchs;
    The Blown Hair [Sword] is always burnished;
    When the wheel of free activity turns,
    The empty void gnashes its teeth."
