Walking The Path with Brother Theophyle
Here is the text version of this cartoon.
For the graphics version,
The Middle Way
Theophyle says to Rabbit, "I have decided to adopt the Buddha's Middle Way. So, from now on, I will do everything by halves: Comb my hair on one side only, shave only one side of my face, wear pants with only one long leg, put on only one shoe. And all like that. I think it makes a lot of sense, don't you?"
Rabbit replies, "I'm not sure I would have put it quite that way".
Perched on the side of the cartoon is a hairy woodpecker, who says, "I'm thinking I may have pecked one hole too many in his head".
To the side of the cartoon is a lute, who says, "What I told Siddhartha was, if the string is too tight, it will break, and if it is too loose, it will not make music. I didn't say anything about wearing only one shoe".
