Han Shan

(of the Ming Dynasty)

(Han-Shan Te’-Ch’-ing, Shrama.na Han-shan De-ching,
Sramana Te Ch’ing,

Silly Mountain)

( 1546 – 1623 )

 

 

Look upon the body as unreal,

an image in a mirror,

the reflection of the moon in water.

Contemplate the mind as formless,

yet bright and pure.

Not a single thought arising,

empty, yet perceptive;

still, yet illuminating;

complete like the great emptiness,

containing all that is wonderful.
