Zen practitioners are absolute masters of ‘living in the present’. Zen monks in particular search for methods to get people on the right track with as few words as possible. One of those methods are the painted Ten Ox-herding Pictures. In these pictures the taming of the ox plays a major role. The ox is symbol for your True Self or Spirit, which continuously is seducted to be everywhere else but ‘in the present’.
Pictures and text are represented in an appropriate manner. A calender that can be consulted daily. A reminder to remember to ‘live in the present’.
