Chan Doing Nothing

Clouds disappear, fog dissipates

Ocean wide, sky empty

Breeze blows, sun shines

— Chan, doing nothing

 

Flowers smile

Grass dances

Trees stretch

— Chan, doing nothing

 

Birds fly in the sky

Fish swim in the water

People walk on the path

— Chan, doing nothing

 

Rice is sweet

Sleep is sound

Body is at ease

— Chan, doing nothing

 

Chan, doing nothing

…..What words can express, ends

…..Where thoughts arise, ceases

…..Joy, free, pure, eternity

 

Chan, doing nothing

……Dharma is like this

……Dharma is inherently like this

……This, is emptiness

 

Chan, doing nothing

……Nothing

……Really

(From “Chan Doing Nothing – Collected Poetry& Paintings of Master Chi Chern” .)
