The Buddha, The Dharma, The Sangha

"Spiritual powers and their wondrous functioning--hauling water and carrying firewood." --Layman Pang, upon his realization

Written on Master Hengzhao's Wall

A Zen path
The autumn moss grows over;
Icy windows bear streak
Of rain.

The true mind
mysteriously integrates
Itself, but who appreciates
Good poems?  Dew chills;
Cricket noises muffle.
A light wind fans
Shadows of foliage.

As if intent,
All day in the window
White clouds.

Tr. Paul Hansen
