bankei 'the brain' heenan

Unborn and imperishable
Is the Original Mind
Earth, water, fire and wind
A temporary lodging for the night
Attached to this ephemeral burning house
You yourselves light the fire,
Kindle the flames
In which you're consumed.
Search back
To the time
When you were born
You can't remember a thing at all!
Keep your mind as it was
When you came into the world
And instantly this very self
Is a living ‘thus come’ one
