When hungry, eat your rice;

when tired, close your eyes.

Fools may laugh at me,

but wise men will know what I mean.

Lin Chi.

 

Your words leave us inspired, spellbound

Your knowledge, so profound.

May you be the guiding star

For mankind and their visions afar

Your teachings encouraged people to have faith

You showed that their natural spontaneous mind

Is the true Buddha-Mind,

A pure state of being

Where one does not obstruct, block, withhold, or repress anything.

Freedom from attachment does not mean to be without feeling,

But being completely at one with any situation.

A pathway to spiritual healing

To live an ordinary life good

Just be your ordinary self in ordinary life,

Unconcerned in seeking for Buddhahood.

Pure Mind is the “true man,” the Buddha as a whole.

Followers of the Way of Zen, we bow to

The Zen master, The man, The monk

Lin Chi, you are immortal in our mind and soul.
