The gates to the Way are manifold:
Each is profound and effective.
But deeper and finer is the
Sky beyond the sky, that,
Understood corresponds to the
Tao of heaven.
For the Way is vast and without favor
And the all-empty Tao is profound.
With an empty heart, its nature is easily
Learned, though its power encompasses
The cosmos.
With its wisdom one may discern life’s
Great mysteries, so that the heart may
Become pure as the throne of the immortals.

Loy Ching-yuen (1879-1960’s)
