notes
synopsis
(Translated as in The Way of Tao, Vol 2 on CD-ROM)
The sutra
Attain the utmost in passivity.
Hold firm to the basis of quietude.
Myriad things take shape and rise to activity,
But I watch them fall back to their repose
Like vegetation that luxuriously grows
But returns to the root (soil) from which it springs.
To return to the root is repose.
It is called going back to one's destiny.
Going back to one's destiny is to find the eternal law.
To know the eternal law is enlightenment.
And not to know the eternal law is to court disaster.
