Beginning of Training Period Poem

Mind´s sound is touching our ears - the wild bird´s song
Mysterious form existing - pure colour of spring
All completely shining with bright light - where can it not be found?
Clearly piercing through it all - awakened mind is surprised

"We all hear the bird´s song but ignore that mind which perceives the sound, thus we are moved around by the outside world. In spring the leaves blossom, yet because we believe that we are separated from the flower, we get moved around by it and do not awaken by perceiving it.

When our mind is completely open, we naturally catch each sound. No need to search for anything. When we awaken to this, we can perceive that all is bright light. And live in amazement our daily life."
