Passing over Ta-yu Peak

In a moment,
All my defilements have vanished.
Leaving both body and soul
Transparently pure.
So vast is it
Here between heaven and earth
That even alone,
All is well with me.
Today as I travel
Along the mountain peaks
Self and world are
Once and for all forgotten.
The winds of the immortals
Seem to caress my head,
As, tying up my hair,
I receive their secrets.

Su Shih (1037-1101)
