Our Buddha Nature Is Forever Pure - Hui-neng Gatha Brushed In Sosho Style
This calligraphy shows a gatha composed by the sixth Zen Patriarch Hui-neng. I have rendered it in a cursive calligraphic style. On top of the gatha calligraphy appears a bright enso, evoking 'the mirror without stand'.
Englisch translation( by Red Pine from his book The Platform Sutra, The Zen Teaching of Hui-neng)
'Bodhi doesn't have any trees
this mirror doesn't have a stand
our buddha nature is forever pure
where do you get this dust?'
