Directly transcend the principles
and activities of the buddhas
and patriarchs. Go through
the forest of thorns.
Transcend the barriers
of potential described by
ancestral teachers.
Pass through the silver mountain
And iron wall—then for the first time
you will realize there is a
transcendent fundamental endowment;
you can sit, helping people solve their sticking points and untie their bonds.

Shoitsu (1202-1280)
