Chan Master Dao

Verse on containing the universe:
The universe and myriad forms,
Hell and heavens;
In reality everything is seen –
It is used everywhere without harm.

Verse on cutting off all streams:
Piling in mountains, heaping in crags,
Each is completely dust;
If you still try to discuss mystery and marvel,
The ice melts and tiles crumble.

Verse on following the waves:
An eloquent mouth and clever tongue question:
High and low, responding without fail
Is like medicine appropriate to the disease;
Examination and diagnosis depend on the time.

Also following on from Baizhang and Yunmen in the Book of Serenity.
