What Is This a Picture Of?

What is this a picture of?

Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche once posed this question. While no one wanted to state the obvious, someone in his audience finally said, "It's a picture of a bird." Rinpoche then replied, "It's a picture of the sky."

This teaching is retold by John J. Baker in "The Dharma in a Single Drawing," which appears in the Spring 2015 Tricycle.
