Sky and Ground

Please look up and see the sky
far and wide and without tracks
turn your body around a bit
everything is right before you

= Tao-ch'uan (Ch'an monk of the Linchi lineage, 1100-1170)
From his commentary on the Diamond Sutra, Ch.20, quoted by Red Pine in "The Diamond Sutra: Text and Commentaries Translated from The Sanskrit and Chinese"
