What Else Do You Seek?
It is clear in your coming and going.
What besides this do you seek?
It is revealing itself clearly amid tranquility and purity.
What is the use of seeking another samadhi?
Whatever you do never leaves samadhi.
All mystic miracles never leave it.
Great mystic miracle and samadhi!
What are great mystic miracle and samadhi?
Washing your face after rolling up your sleeves is.
This, not a secret from the beginning,
has become a secret which is not secret
because you look for and try to get it in vain.
Once you realize whatever you do never leaves samadhi,
peace will reign in the land and all satans will surrender.
My dear fellows,
Manjusri is riding a blue lion and Samantabhadra is riding a white elephant.
What is the enlightened man
who makes friends with blue mountains and white clouds riding?
