Gogō-an
Gogō-an

I have nothing to report, my friend
If you want to find the meaning
Stop chasing after so many things

 

                                 Ryokan Taigu                                       

 

 

If someone asks me what is the mark
of awakening or illusion
I cannot say -
wealth and honor are nothing but dust
As the evening rain falls
I sit in my hermitage
and stretch out both feet in answer


                                          良寛大愚

                                  Ryokan Taigu
                                    (1758-1831)
