A FISH HEADED AND
DRAGON BODIED ANIMAL
A fish headed and dragon bodied animal with a horse's tail
is walking leisurely out fire.
There is no knowing what this principle is!
What a pity you have no eye for it
thought what ia more than this
is common in the truth!
Never think I am deceving you.
because everything will reveal itself clearly before your eyes
if you see with the eye that can see it as it is.
With a jangseung making a long howl,
a stone woman sheds tears.
What is this principle?
* jangseung: Korean traditional totem pole
at the village
