THE PEACEFUL PATH IN THIS LIFE

Tổ Trúc Lâm Yên Tử Việt Nam (1258 – 1308) 
THE PEACEFUL PATH IN THIS LIFE 

In this earthly world, enjoy life as its natural way 
When you are hungry, just eat; when you are weary, just sleep. 
As in our house and in us, 
   there is no need to search for the treasure already within. 
When facing countless situations, no mind is the essence of Thiền (Zen). 


This is a poem that I translated from the famous Zen Master King Tran Nhan Tong
