Mumokan Verses 2
Since the cottage has been built by
There is nothing but the field
Even without taking it to pieces (8)
No roof above.
No possessions below.
The sun sets, the moon rises
Who knows who this is. Hey! (46)
Where are you going around on pilgrimage?
What is the purpose?
--I don’t know.
Not knowing is the most intimate.
You don’t need fine phrases.
Before you speak, the answer is thee.
If you just chatter on
Knowing will become deceiving. (24)
A flash of lightning.
Sparks of fire from a flint.
If your eyes blink, its already gone.(21)
A person who explains this and that, is a person of this and that.(18)
