FUKE’S BELL SONG 正法眼蔵 二十二

Follow the old fellow
walking over there, he
who cannot see
because it is too bright,
who cannot see
because it is too dark
who cannot see
above himself, below
behind or beside,
but traverses the path
with an unerring foot.

A reflection on Case 22 of Dogen’s Shobogenzo Koans (True Dharma Eye)
