ECHU EXPELS A DISCIPLE 鐵笛倒吹 語十三

If you come upon Echu napping
do not disturb him,
but retreat to the zendo
or walk in the small garden
where enlightenment
may be found.

If the search is successful
leave quickly, tell no one,
for it is very fragile
and the tongue
is sharper
than the sword
and infinitely
more deadly.
