The Buddha, The Reverend One of the World, ascended the Snowy Peak.
Whoever witnessed this?
Relying on the heartlessness of my sword
I went and cut off all my black hair.
Whatever the style, a surface appearance is essentially just that -
the outside of something.
Whatever the determination, a plan to perform any Dharma method is
essentially just that - an interior scheme.
Only the person who gets rid of within and without
Escapes from birth and death and ascends to eternity.
