Are You Looking for Me?

Are You Looking for Me?

Are you looking for me? I am in the next seat. My shoulder is against yours. You will not find me in the stupas, not in Indian shrine rooms, nor in synagogues, nor in cathedrals: Not in masses, nor kirtans, not in legs winding around our own neck, nor in eating nothing but vegetables.
