Leaves fall
where no green earth remains:
a person at his ease,
wears a plain, white robe.

With simplicity and plainness
his original nature still,
what need to practice
“calming of the heart?”

“It is present everywhere.
There is nothing it does not contain.
However only those who have previously
planted wisdom seeds will be able
to continuously see it.”
