A knower of the Truth
travels without leaving a trace
speaks without causing harm
gives without keeping an account
The door he shuts, though having no lock,
cannot be opened
The knot he ties, though using no cord,
cannot be undone
The Sage is always on the side of virtue
so everyone around him prospers
He is always on the side of truth
so everything around him is fulfilled
The path of the Sage is called
"The Path of Illumination"
He who gives himself to this path
is like a block of wood
that gives itself to the chisel–
Cut by cut it is honed to perfection
Only a student who gives himself
can receive the master's gift
If you think otherwise,
despite your knowledge, you have blundered
Giving and receiving are one
This is called
"The great wonder"
"The essential mystery"
"The very heart of all that is true"
