Musings III

The voices of all the teachers
or patriarchs,
Buddhas and Bodhisattvas alike
are of many tongues,
but the One-Mind
of No-Mind…
Mind like Water,
call it Mu
or Wu,
needs no tongue.
The ripples of each Dharma-Action
transmit their energy
without a sound.
When the mind becomes still
the ripples subside
until the clear stillness is as the Moon
reflected on its surface.
How steady the hands
that can pick up that reflection
to carry it
Chazz Vincent
