one

train halting at packed platform
kaleidoscope of commuters
shapes, sounds, colours

suddenly, my awareness balloons out fast
shooting both away from and toward faces at once
all things fall away…

space, silence, white light

eternity and split second
people and me
one

one

Artist's Description

Around 5:30pm on Wednesday, 18 November 1998, I was on a suburban train returning from Parramatta [Sydney, Australia], having just meditated silently for 2.5 hours in a small room with Lama Gangchen and his childhood friend (another Lama) while they discussed Buddhist texts in Tibetan.

I was lightheartedly wishing in turn each passenger in the carriage with a “may you be happy and well” as the train arrived at Strathfield station. I looked out onto the platform and this experience happened…..

Before this I searched and wanted to believe.

Now I know.
