9780804832137: A Quiet Room: Poetry of Zen Master Jakushitsu

This simple yet profound translation of Jakushitsu's poetry offers readers a wide selection of this 15th-century Rinzai Zen master's verse. Though the subject matter varies from commentaries on key Buddhist scriptures to reflections on the natural world and the commemoration of meaningful events, each poem reveals his power as a teacher and the depths of his understanding of Zen. Excerpts from Buddhist scripture, diary entries and a helpful glossary are all included, offering a greater understanding of Zen practice and the culture of traditional Japan.

Everyday Jui-yen called out to himself, "Master!" and answered himself, "Yes!" Then he would say, "Are you awake?" and reply, "Yes!" And he would continue, "Don't ever be deceived by others!" "No I won't!"

[The Wu-men Kuan,2 case 12]
Opening Gatha (a religious verse)
Wu-yeh all his life called out

"Don't be deluded"

Jui-yen simply said

"Master."

In a deserted mountain

sun shines through an ivy-tangled
window

The sound of wind in the pines ceases

and I enjoy a peaceful afternoon nap Two Poems Written on the Wall at

I acquired this hermitage a year ago

Cloudy peaks moon in the valley

companions in withered

Come morning

I descend the mountain road

in front of this crag
What mountain rock will I sleep on next?


Wind stirs waterfall

sending cold sound

Moonrise over the foothills

shines its light on my bamboo window

Dearer with age

these mountain ways

If I die at the foot of this cliff

even my bones will be pure

On the thirteenth day of the ninth month I visited Taharamura village, spending the night in a thatched cottage.
The monks accompanying me all went to sleep.
Alone, I opened the window, gazed at the moon, and jotted down some old memories. Mid-autumn

in the year of the rat

I stayed in a cottage

among the vines and mist

Thinking back on my fifty-some years

Have I ever known an evening

so deeply enchanting?
