|The Teachings of Master Goose

Hot Buddhist on Buddhist Action!
Here are my re-render-imagineerings of the teachings of Master Goose. I feel the term "Mother Goose" overlooks the fact that Master Goose is father and mother to us all, and has great wisdom to share with the whole world, but with the awful translations, that wisdom has been lost for centuries. I think my version explains it so much more clearly.|
Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall of the Dharma
Humpty Dumpty had a great big fall into Samsara
And all the king's horses, trapped in the realm of beasts,
And all the king's men, trapped in the illusion of future and past,
Couldn't reveal the root-causes of Humpty's suffering,
For only the great truth of the Atman could do that.
Jack and Jill
Jack and Jill's earthly temporal bodies, free from their astral spirits, went up a hill
To seek a well that they may drink of Transcendent Divine Wisdom and attain Nirvana.
Jack fell from the endless cycle of suffering,
And broke the crown of attachment to the physical world,
And led the Bodhisattva path for Jill, who followed him into blissful peace and Moksha.
Namaste, you deluded losers.
