Plum blossom, by D. Shouping

“When the mind wanders onto deluded paths,
It is being set in motion by the flowering of the Dharma;
When the heart awakens,
The Dharma’s flowering is set in motion.

[…]

When you cease to judge whether you are bound or not,
You ride forever long within the cart by the White Ox drawn. “
