Misreadings are great. They show what draws my attention here and now, and what’s alive for me.
Here are a couple of recent examples.
A friend of mine wrote in an email:
realizing that Diamond Sutra is actually Prajnamamita Sutra
I read it as Pajama Sutra. (A misreading of a misspelling of Prajnaparamita.)
In what way is this alive for me here and now, Pajama Sutra? In what way has it juiciness and meaning for me?
