The Great Light

"The great Light always existed,
even long before the creation of the universes,
and it will continue to exist after their destruction.

This Light is so wondrous that even if all the universes expounded upon it for a zillion years, they would still not be able to even begin to describe it.

Yet this great Light is something that cannot be seen even by the most precise microscope or the most powerful telescope. It is something that can only be seen by the Eye…"

Poem by the Venenerable Tong Songchol (1912~1993), one of the great Zen masters in the last century.
