    Sun sets, bell sounds, the mist.
    Headwind on the road, the going hard.
    Evening Sun at Cold Mountain.
    Horses tread men's shadows.

    PRECONCEPTIONS
    by Milarepa


    Just as fog is dispelled by the strength of the sun
    and is dispelled no other way,
    preconception is cleared by the strength of realization.
    Experience them as baseless dreams.
    Experience them as ephemeral bubbles.
    Experience them as insubstantial rainbows.
    Experience them as indivisible space


    Gassho,
    Myosha

    Talking about food won’t fill your stomach.
    Talk about clothing won’t keep out cold.
    To be full, eat rice.
    To stay warm, wear clothes.
    Those who don’t understand
    complain it’s hard to get help from Buddha.
    Look inside your heart. That’s where Buddha is.
    Don’t look for him outside.
    --Han Shan
    To give up yourself without regret is the greatest charity. --RBB

    For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen.

    To see a World in a Grain of Sand
    And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
    Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
    And Eternity in an hour.

    One Art
    BY ELIZABETH BISHOP
    The art of losing isn’t hard to master;
    so many things seem filled with the intent
    to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

    Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
    of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
    The art of losing isn’t hard to master.

    Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
    places, and names, and where it was you meant
    to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

    I lost my mother’s watch. And look! my last, or
    next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
    The art of losing isn’t hard to master.

    I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
    some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
    I miss them, but it wasn’t a disaster.

    —Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
    I love) I shan’t have lied. It’s evident
    the art of losing’s not too hard to master
    though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

    Please forgive any mistake in my writing. Like in Zen, in English I am only a beginner.

    Somehow the thread about faith reminded me of this poem.
    Translation by me; unconventional grammar is intentional.
    Look at the dates and then please excuse the gendered language.

    ----
    An Sich

    Sei dennoch unverzagt! Gib dennoch unverloren!
    Weich keinem Glücke nicht, steh höher als der Neid,
    vergnüge dich an dir und acht es für kein Leid,
    hat sich gleich wider dich Glück, Ort und Zeit verschworen.
     
    Was dich betrübt und labt, halt alles für erkoren;
    nimm dein Verhängnis an. Laß alles unbereut.
    Tu, was getan muß sein, und eh man dir's gebeut.
    Was du noch hoffen kannst, das wird noch stets geboren.
     
    Was klagt, was lobt man noch? Sein Unglück und sein Glücke
    ist ihm ein jeder selbst. Schau alle Sachen an:
    dies alles ist in dir. Laß deinen eitlen Wahn,
     
    und eh du fürder gehst, so geh in dich zurücke.
    Wer sein selbst Meister ist und sich beherrschen kann,
    dem ist die weite Welt und alles untertan.
     
     
    To Self
     
    For all that, don't be despondent! Nevertheless, count not for lost!
    Yield to no fortune; stand higher than envy,
    delight in yourself and regard it no affliction
    even if fortune, place and time have conspired against you.
     
    What grieves and nourishes you, consider it your choice;
    accept your fate. Leave everything unregretted.
    Do what must be done and ere it’s demanded of you.
    What you can still hope for, will yet ever be born.
     
    What good is it to still lament or praise? His misfortune and his luck
    is, to each man, he himself. Look at all things:
    this all is in you. Let go of your vain delusion,
     
    and before you go on further, go back into yourself.
    Whoever is his own master and can restrain himself,
    he has conquered the wide world and everything.

    - Paul Fleming, 1609-1640

    Buddhas and ancestors cut to pieces;
    The sword is ever kept sharpened.
    Where the wheel turns,
    The void gnashes its teeth.

    Yes, I’m truly a dunce
    Living among trees and plants.
    Please don’t question me about illusion and enlightenment --
    This old fellow just likes to smile to himself.
    I wade across streams with bony legs,
    And carry a bag about in fine spring weather.
    That’s my life,
    And the world owes me nothing.

    Mind and Senses

    The mind is an organ of thought and objects are set against it:
    The two are like marks on the surface of the mirror;
    When the dirt is removed, the light begins to shine.
    Both mind and objects being forgotten, Ultimate Nature
    reveals itself true.

    Yung-chia Hsüan-chüeh
