Zazen on Ching-t’ing Mountain BY LI PO TRANSLATED BY SAM HAMILL


I found a version of one of favourite poems and spiritual truths that has a title, a very important title;

Zazen on Ching-t’ing Mountain



The birds have vanished down the sky.
Now the last cloud drains away.

We sit together, the mountain and me,
until only the mountain remains.
