You no sooner attain the great void
Then body and mind are lost together.
Heaven and Hell -- a straw.
The Buddha relm- Pandemonian-- shambles.
Listen: a nightingale strains her voice serenading the snow.
Look: a tortoise wearing a sword climbs the lampstand.
Should you desire the great traquility,
Prepare to sweat white beads.
