Type of Spiritual Experience
A different picture for a change - not the one we all know The Fisherman's wife, another one
A description of the experience
Lots of arms, just like Kannon the Goddess;
Sacrificed for me, garnished with citron, I revere it so!
The taste of the sea, just divine!
Sorry, Buddha, this is another precept I just cannot keep.
