‘The Clouds Should Know Me By Now’



Leaves fall, where no green earth remains. A person at ease wears this plain, white robe. With simplicity and plainness one’s original nature is still. Therefore, what need is there to practice “Calming of the Heart?”

Chia-Tao 779-843

Buddhist poet of the middle Tang dynasty
