POLISH A BRICK – Han Shan

New Earth Heartbeat

Steam some sand for your dinner

When you’re thirsty dig a well

Polish a brick with all you might

You still won’t make a mirror

The Buddha said we’re basically equal

We share the same true nature

Figure it out for yourself

Give up this useless struggle

 

Notes:

The Suwen ssuchi tiaoshen talun says: “Waiting for an illness before taking medicine is like waiting until you’re thirsty to dig a well.”
