The Song of Enlightenment – Extracts 1

Since I abruptly realized the unborn,

I have had no reason for joy or sorrow, at any honor or disgrace.

I have entered the deep mountains to silence and beauty;

In a profound valley beneath high cliffs, I sit under the old pine trees.

Zazen in my rustic cottage, is peaceful, lonely and truly comfortable.
