From our mountain fields, millet harvested for our meal,
From our garden, plain yellow leeks;
Whether you eat from what there is to eat is up to you,
And if you choose not to eat thereof, feel free to go where you will.
I pray that, on reflection, each of you, my companions on the Path, will practice diligently. Take good care of yourselves!
Sekisō built a Hall for Withered Trees where he and his community did their sitting and lying down, only requiring of his monks that their hearts and minds completely quiet down.
(quoted from: https://www.shastaabbey.org/pdf/shoboAll.pdf)
Sekisō established a withered trees hall where he sat and slept with the monks, wanting only to master his own mind.
