Dongshan’s Jewel Mirror Samadhi


The teaching of suchness, intimately given by the buddhas and ancestors—
now that it’s yours, keep it well.
A silver bowl filled with snow, a white heron hidden in the moonlight—
Apart, they seem similar; together, they’re different.

—Opening lines in Dongshan’s Song of the Jewel Mirror Samadhi
