Yen-shou's Poem of Enligthenment

by Yung-ming Yen-shou

English version by Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki
Original Language Chinese

Something dropped! It is no other thing;
Right and left, there is nothing earthy:
Rivers and mountains and the great earth,--
In them all revealed is the Body of the Dharmaraja.
