‘Hold on to Nothing’ / Buddhist Wisdom T-shirt
This stunning and original organic cotton t-shirt creates the face of Buddha entirely out of calligraphy, using the words ‘Hold on to Nothing and fall into the Midst of Everything’. The t-shirt is inspired from a poem written by Teijitsu, an 18th century abbess of Hakujuan, a Zen Buddhist nunnery in Japan, at the moment of her awakening.
“She saw that all phenomena arose, abided, and fell away. She saw that even knowing this arose, abided, and fell away. Then she knew there was nothing more than this, no ground, nothing to lean on, stronger than the cane she held. Nothing to lean upon at all, and no one leaning… and she opened the clenched fist in her mind and let go, and fell, into the midst of everything”.
In the stress of modern life, it is easy to forget that your mind set is everything. This T-shirt invites you open up your mind, expand your awareness and experience everything here and now, just as it is.

Organic cotton requires a little more care than regular pesticide filled cotton and therefore needs to be washed inside out on a cool cycle. Organic cotton should never see the inside of your tumble dryer, air drying is best! Never iron directly onto the hand screen printed graphics – iron the garment inside out or use a clean cloth as a barrier.
