Metta Morpheus Bodhichitta Dreams

Hand bound reproduction book of 34 bed time rhymes and marker drawings Drawings: (4”x 6”) marker drawings one made each day spring 2014 during a time of study of the text: The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep~by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche. The bedtime rhymes repeat the lulling to sleep we do every night in the sleep of Samsara. Whether awake or in dream, Samsara holds us in sway, and the wheel turns in all directions.

“When in the body of a donkey, Enjoy the taste of grass……….The Samsaric sleep of dreams is like going to a big city, where people embrace, fight, chat, and abandon one another; there is hunger and wealth; there are beautiful places, tattered places, frightening places……in the Samsaric City of Dreams:   a limitless realm of mental activity generated by the karmic traces of past actions.  Carry your practice into sleep… Look to your sleep to discover whether or not you are truly awake.”  ~ Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
~from The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep~
