Dwelling in the stone cave.
the stone cave is peaceful and quiet
dwelling alone all matters are put to rest
sitting on the meditation mat
all life experiences are like floating froth
the three transmigrations are fundamentally empty
Buddhas and demons rolled up by themselves
the great thousand suffering realms are illusions
illusions also do not stay
Passing Summer at Jade Spring Temple, Hanzhou
A pool of lotus buds, reflect a rippling heart.
Each day in a town.
By the north window, faces an owner.
Allowing fragrant breeze in, across the benches.
And what else, dusty matters arrive at the door no more.
