I-kung's place to practice Ch'an:
A hut in empty grove.
Outside the door, a single majestic peak.
Before the stair, deep valleys.
Sunset confused in footprints of the rain.
Blue of the void in the shade of the court.
Look, and see: the lotus blossom's purity.
Know, then, that nothing taints this heart.

Meng Hao-jan (689-740)
