Enlightenment is like the moon reflected on the water
that turns your light inward
to illuminate your self.
Body and mind of themselves
will drop away,
and your original face will be manifest.
Coming, going, the waterbirds
don’t leave a trace,
don’t follow a path.
no wind, the empty boat
is flooded with moonlight.
Enlightenment is like the moon reflected on the water.
The moon does not get wet, nor is the water broken.
Although its light is wide and great,
The moon is reflected even in a puddle an inch wide.
The whole moon and the entire sky
Are reflected in one dewdrop on the grass.
