   18 Taigu Ryokan


1:Last year, a foolish monk; This year, no change! ~ Taigu Ryokan, 1758-1831 ,
2:Ah, the nightingale!!There were many people thereBut not one of them heard it. ~ Taigu Ryokan,
3:Dreams :::in this dream world we doze and talk of dreams -- dream, dream on, as much as you wish ~ Taigu Ryokan,
4:If we attain something it was there from the beginning of time. If we lose something it is hiding somewhere near us. ~ Taigu Ryokan, 1758-1831 ,
5:Teishin :::"When, when?" I sighed.The one I longed forHas finally come;With her now,I have all that I need. ~ Taigu Ryokan,
6:The Three Thousand Worldsthat step forwardwith the light snow,and the light snow that fallsin those Three Thousand Worlds ~ Taigu Ryokan,
7:Who says my poems are poems?My poems are not poems.After you know my poems are not poems,Then we can begin to discuss poetry! ~ Taigu Ryokan,
8:Like The Little Stream ::: Like the little stream Making its way Through the mossy crevices I, too, quietly Turn clear and transparent. ~ Taigu Ryokan,
9:Have You Forgotten Me:::have you forgotten me or lost the path here? i wait for you all day, every day but you do not appear. ~ Taigu Ryokan,
10:With no mind, flowers lure the butterfly; With no mind, the butterfly visits the blossoms. Yet when flowers bloom, the butterfly comes; When the butterfly comes, the flowers bloom. ~ Taigu Ryokan, Translated by Larry Smith ,
11:The Way Of The Holy Fool ::: At the crossroads this year, after begging all day I lingered at the village temple. Children gather round me and whisper, "The crazy monk has come back to play." ~ Taigu Ryokan,
12:220. Broken begging bowl,My old begging bowl,Now as before, bear it high,Broken begging bowl,My old begging bowl,Broken begging bowl,My old begging bowl,Bear it high, and go begging,All day and each day. ~ Taigu Ryokan,
13:170. A magnificent temple towers to heaven by the Eternal Bridge.Priests rival in its halls the sermons of rocks and streams.I, for one, would gladly sacrifice my brows for my brethren,But I fear I might aggravate the war, already rank as weeds. ~ Taigu Ryokan,
14:An improvisation :::For hours, since I sat facing you, you have stayed mute.Your meaning, ampler than words, addresses itself to me.Cases removed, books lie open, scattered by the bedside.Beyond the bamboo screen, a shower falls on a plum tree. ~ Taigu Ryokan,
15:DAWN I have returned to my native village after twenty years; No sign of old friends or relatives-they have all died or gone away. My dreams are shattered by the sound of the temple bell struck at sunrise. An empty floor, no shadows; the light has long been extinguished. ~ Taigu Ryokan,
16:In The Morning :::In the morning, bowing to all; In the evening, bowing to all. Respecting others is my only duty-- Hail to the Never-despising Bodhisattva. In heaven and earth he stands alone. A real monk Needs Only one thing-- a heart like Never-despising Buddha. ~ Taigu Ryokan,
17:IN THE entire ten quarters of the Buddha land There is only one vehicle. When we see clearly, there is no difference in all the teachings. What is there to lose? What is there to gain? If we gain something, it was there from the beginning. If we lose anything, it is hidden nearby. Look at the ball in the sleeve of my robe. Surely it has great value.[ The first sentence of this poem quotes a famous line from the Lotus Sutra.] ~ Taigu Ryokan,
18:Reply To A Friend ::: In stubborn stupidity, I live on alone befriended by trees and herbs. Too lazy to learn right from wrong, I laugh at myself, ignoring others. Lifting my bony shanks, I cross the stream, a sack in my hand, blessed by spring weather. Living thus, I want for nothing, at peace with all the world. Your finger points to the moon, but the finger is blind until the moon appears. What connection has moon and finger? Are they separate objects or bound? This is a question for beginners wrapped in seas of ignorance. Yet one who looks beyond metaphor knows there is no finger; there is no moon. ~ Taigu Ryokan,
