I've been participating in a website concerning impermanence. Gary Snyder wrote about impermanence after the destruction of the Buddhas by the Taliban, when someone suggested that such a loss was just part of the inevitable change of everything.:
"Ah yes . . . impermanence. But this is never a reason to let compassion and focus slide, or to pass off the suffering of others because they are merely impermanent beings. Issa's haiku goes . . .
'This dewdrop world
is but a dewdrop world
That 'and yet' is our perennial practice."
