TŌSU’S MOON

If you have
a full half knowledge
will you be content
or strive for full knowledge
and how will you know
when you have it.
Remember that
you measure knowledge
only as it departs
and he who knows
what he knows
is the greatest fool.

A reflection on Case 13 of the Shobogenzo (Dogen’s True Dharma Eye) Koans
