“When an ordinary person is enlightened he becomes a Buddha; when a Buddha is unenlightened he becomes an ordinary person.”

 

Hermit Poet’s Comments

Thoughts enter

Thoughts go

Cycle of busy mind

Continues

Rotation

Grasping for no-mind

It slips away

Bamboo

Sways with the wind

Unconcerned with direction
