KYOSEI’S BUDDHADHARMA 正法眼蔵 三十九

If you ask when
is the best time
to seek wisdom I
will tell you
at the stroke of midnight
and I will walk
on a lighter left foot.
If you ask the next day
when is the best time
to seek wisdom
I will tell you
at highest noon
and I will walk
on a lighter right foot.

A reflection on Case 39 of Dogen’s Shoboganzo Koans (True Dharma Eye)
