A GOLDEN LION
it is never caught in anything all around.
where are you heading for?
While knowing neither where you are from nor where you are going,
have you ever seen the very being towering clearly?
It, formless, is just like this and like this.
Taking what is false for what is true,
and not awere of your ignorance while ignorant,
you are like a gold fish that only opens and closes its mouth.
Once you go over the hill,
a golden lion will be vomiting a bright light.
