Reflections on Ryokan - The Winds have Died

The winds have died, but flowers go on falling;
birds call, but silence penetrates each song.

The Mystery! Unknowable, unlearnable.
The virtue of Kannon.


These incomparable words express so eloquently the mystery of inseparable emptiness and appearances.

Poignant indeed :-)
