You should each individually
Clarify your own mind,
Getting to the root
Without pursuing the branches.

Just get to the root,
And the branches come of themselves.
If you want to get to the root,
Just get to know your mind.

This mind is basically the root
Of all mundane and supramundane
Phenomena; as long as the mind
Does not become obsessed with

Good and bad, you will realize that
All things are basically just so.

Ta-mei (ca.805)
