You want to learn to catch a mouse?
Don't try to learn from a pampered cat.
If you want to learn the nature of the world,
Don't study fine bound books.
The True Jewel's in a coarse bag.
Buddha-nature stops at huts.
The whole herd of folks
Who clutch at looks of things
Never seem to make the connection.

Shih Te (8th c.)
