DHARMA IDIOT - BY JOSHU

"Sadly I awake in the morning
To see how worn-out I am
I have no shirt, only the semblance of a robe,
My pants have no seat,
My tunic no opening
On my head are three or five pecks of gray ashes.
Originally I intended to practice
To help save others –
Who would have thought that I would turn out to be
An idiot."

Poem of the 24 hours of the day - JoshuP

SHODOKA [SONG OF ENLIGHTENMENT] - YUNG-CHIA HUSAN CHUEH

There is the leisurely one,
Walking the Tao, beyond philosophy,
Not avoiding fantasy, not seeking truth.
The real nature of ignorance is the Buddha-nature itself;
The empty delusory body is the very body of the Dharma.

When the Dharma body awakens completely,
There is nothing at all.
The source of our self-nature
Is the Buddha of innocent truth.
Mental and physical reactions come and go
Like clouds in the empty sky;
Greed, hatred, and ignorance appear and disappear
Like bubbles on the surface of the sea.

When we realize actuality,
There is no distinction between mind and thing
And the path to hell instantly vanishes.
If this is a lie to fool the world,
My tongue may be cut out forever.

Once we awaken to the Tathagata-Zen,
The six noble deeds and the ten thousand good actions
Are already complete within us.
In our dream we see the six levels of illusion clearly;
After we awaken the whole universe is empty.

No bad fortune, no good fortune, no loss, no gain;
Never seek such things in eternal serenity.
For years the dusty mirror has gone uncleaned,
Now let us polish it completely, once and for all.

BE STILL... - by Hae Kwang Sunim
.
“Wash yourself through True(S)elf
Watch your mind.
See what mind (ego) is doing.
Let the light of consciousness melt egoic extremes.
Take the time. Be still.
Let (Big Mind) distill all fears and confusions.

You are far more than patterns and stories.
You are vast beyond measure.”

SONG OF ENLIGHTENMENT, Yoka Daishi
1. Knowest thou that leisurely philosopher who has gone beyond learning and is not exerting himself in anything?
He neither endeavours to avoid idle thoughts nor seeks after the Truth;
[For he knows that] ignorance in reality is the Buddha-nature,
[And that] this empty visionary body is no less than the Dharma-body.

2. When one knows what the Dharma-body is, there is... [read more, click below]

RESPONDING TO TEN VERSES BY SAROK GYEONG OF GEUMSONG

Man Man,
By karma Acquires a body,
Fruit of bitterness and joy,
Result of good and evil deeds.
Not following evil and delusion,
Always acting upright and true.
Mere husks are wealth and fame,
Armour and helmet, principles and humanity.
Still you must fathom the impenetrable for directions,
Then naturally you will change your bones and clear your mind.


The body is not fire, wind, earth or water,
The mind too is not to be soiled by care.
The seamless stupa shines to dispel the night,
The rootless tree blooms with everlasting spring.
Is it the keen wind or the white moonlight, that brings sickness or cure?
Of the clouds and the green mountains, which is old and which is new?
The one way has always been the one the sages trod, A thousand carts in the same ruts have ever followed the same road.

次錦城慶司祿從一至十韻 人 人 隨業 受身 苦樂果 善惡因 不循邪妄 常行正眞 粃糠兮富貴 甲冑兮義仁 況須參玄得旨 自然換骨淸神 體不是火風地水 心亦非緣慮客塵 沒縫塔中燈燃 不夜 無根樹上花發恒春 風磨月白兮誰病誰藥 雲合靑山也何舊何新 一道通方 爲聖賢之所履 千車共轍故古今而同道
