The Buddhas : Is that you, chanting profusely?
UN : Yes.
The Buddhas : How come so much?
UN : One work is stuck.
The Buddhas : Oh, so you need to be pinned down, to then chant profusely, is it?
UN : I do see a pattern there. I wish it weren’t so.
The Buddhas : Just chant, work stuck or no work stuck.
UN : We’re talking about profusely, remember?
The Buddhas : Right, yes. Let’s say, everything’s on track. Can you still chant profusely?
UN : You know the answer. Rephrase to ask what you wish to actually ask.
The Buddhas : Good. Can you still chant profusely with regularity?
UN : Now you have the right question. I get distracted by the good times. Chanting, yes. Profusely, yes, at times. Chanting with regularity, yes. Morning-evening, yes. Gongyo, yes. Chanting profusely with regularity, unfortunately, no. There, you have me.
The Buddhas : And when do you chant profusely with regularity, if at all.
UN : When there’s a pin-me-down.
The Buddhas : Try doing so without the pin-me-down having to push you to.
UN : Tough.
The Buddhas : Try.
UN : Ok, I’ll try.
