How to Capture and Tame
a Wild Dragon Raging About
Wake up the dragon sleeping in a deep pond
and it will become dark and everything will be turned upside down
in no time.
You have to get a very special means ready to capture this dragon.
What is the special means?
If it is neither thought nor mind that arouses thought,
what is it that arouses this thought?
Take hold of this question and never let go of it
until you find the answer.
Though words reveal meaning,
how can they reveal all meaning?
Only a wise person can capture and tame the wild dragon.
You should capture the wild dragon with all your might.
A wise man catches the wild dragon by the tail after his best effort.
In a flash
all darkness disappears, lotus flowers bloom,
and hell disappears.
