ZEN: WHERE’S THE MOON?

The natural lantern

Hanging high up in the sky;

If it is not visible to the naked eye,

Where has it hidden?

Although it is a moonless night,

It is still hanging high up in the sky;

Why does it not shine,

To give light to the blind?

THE BLIND DOES NOT NEED ANY LIGHT;

IT IS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE SIGHT!

IF THE MOON IS NOT IN THE MIND,

NO MOON WILL BE IN SIGHT;

WHEN THE MOON IS IN THE MIND,

EVEN PITCH DARKNESS WILL BECOME BRIGHT!
