In complete silence words are forgotten,
Total clarity appears before you.
When you reflect it, it is boundlessly vast,
And your body becomes numinous.

Numinous it is illuminated without relying on anything,
In illumination, you return to the transcendent.
The dewy moon on the Milky Way,
The snow-clad pine on the cloudy peak.

Hongzhi Zhengjue (1091-1157)
