Hsiang-yen Chih-hsien (d.898)
With one stroke,
All precious knowledge is forgotten.
No cultivation is needed for this.
This occurrence reveals the ancient way
And is free from the track of quiescence.
No trace is left anywhere.
Whatever I hear and see
Does not conform to rules.
All those who are enlightened
Proclaim this to be the greatest action.
