There are millions of people who wear
the robes of the Dharma,
clinging only to letters and words;
It is a pity that none remove their robes.

You may very well remove your robes,
if you like;
But you can keep them on.
They will come off without effort--

when you are touched by the wind
that blows over the pine trees
on the peak.

(Zuiken’s  Shinshu Dharmapada 174 en 175)
