Seclusion

Dōgen lived in 13th century Japan and founded the Soto Zen school of Buddhism after travelling to China to receive teachings.

Evening zazen hours advance.  Sleep hasn’t come yet.
More and more I realise mountain forests are good for efforts in the way.
Sounds of the valley brook enter the ears, moonlight pierces the eyes.
Outside this, not one further instant of thought.
