Commentary on Hyang Eom’s “Up a Tree”

Commentary on Hyang Eom’s “Up a Tree”  

Empty Mirror cannot hold on
to Blue Sky or Green Pine Trees’ Sound
Mystic Energy without Time and Space
Has no coming, Has no going.

Before Hyang Eom
Already clean in front of you.
Why then did Bodhidharma
Come to China?

Open your mouth you’re already dead.
Close your mouth already too late.
Even Yaaaaahaa is not enough.

Ha Ha Ha Ha
(Ask Man Gong)
Chicken Crowing at 3 a.m.
Moon Setting at 7 a.m.
Wake up! Wake up!
Spring Sun Shining on Complete World


by Zen Master Su Bong (1943-1994)
