Oxtail Soup

Oxtail
Mythological Facts

It is necessary to go
A long way,
Through many difficulties,
To get to a place
One has never left.
                      --T.S.Eliot
This image is number Three
Of the Famous Ten
Ox-Herding Pictures
Of Zen Buddhism.
The ox is the self
And the boy is the self
And when the search is over
The self is always one.
