Do not go after the past,
Do not lose yourself in the future.
For the past no longer exists,
And the future is not yet here.
By looking deeply at things just as they are,
In this moment, here and now,
I HIDE NOTHING FROM YOU
One day Huang Sanku, a Confucian scholar asked Hui-tang Tsu-hsin (1025-1100), one of the well known Chinese Ch'an masters: -What is the Great meaning of Budhha dharmas? Hui-tang replied: -Confucius once said: "I hide nothing from you." Neither does Zen. Do you understand what this means? Sanku said: -No. I don't. Therefore, Hui-tang said: -Follow me to the back side of this mountain... When they were at the place where some osmanthus flowers were blooming and the fragrance was very sweet. Hui-tang asked: -Do you smell the sweet osmanthus? -Yes, I do. -See, I hide nothing from you, either.
