The Littlest Bodhisattva

Tassajara monks Lauren and Kogen Dito-Keith are delighted to announce the birth of baby Calliope. Born on Saturday, March 12, at 1:11am, and named after the muse of epic poetry, Calliope Gail Dito-Keith is 7.1 lbs and 19in long, and “perfect in every way”, according to her parents – indeed, she’s “a babe in the world in five aspects complete”, as Kogen’s teacher Eijun Linda Cutts commented.

    She is a contemporary to my grandson, Liam. Does she still have the Milky Way in her eyes?
