Te-shan (d. 867)
Don’t love sagehood;
sagehood is an empty name.
There is no special truth
but this radiant spiritual openness,
unobstructed and free.
It is not attained by adornment
and cultivated realization.
From the buddhas to the Zen masters,
all have transmitted this teaching,
by which they attained liberation.
