At Zen centers they sayHe is in the rain.
There is a Way to be practiced
And a religious truth to be realized.
Tell me, what religious truth is realized,
What way is practiced?
In your present functioning, what do you lack?
What would you fix?
Younger newcomers, not understanding this,
Immediately believe these mesmerists and
Let them talk about things that tie people up.
- Linji (d. 867)
He is in these words.
He has found nature to be home.
A joy, if not perfect, at least complete.
