Who is without thought? (from The Song of Enlightenment)

by Hsuan Chueh of Yung Chia / Yoka Genkaku

English version by International Institute for the Translation of Buddhist Texts
Original Language Chinese

Who is without thought?
Who is without birth?
If there is really no production, there is nothing not produced.
Summon a wooden statue and inquire of it.
Apply yourself to seeking Buddha-hood; sooner or later you will accomplish it.

-- from Song of Enlightenment: By Great Master Yung Chia of the T'ang Dynasty, Edited by Tripitaka Master Hua / Translated by International Institute for the Translation of Buddhist Texts
