Oh great Maha!
In emptiness, only obtain for all beings!
Make personal vows.

Zen isn't a philosophy.
It is beyond words
and intellect.

What is mind?
After seeking kalpas,
Not speck of dirt
Make personal vows.

When you're hungry,
go eat. I'm hungry,

Every moment
Mind grasps to everything
It constructs duality
Discern!
Make personal vows.
