A MONK BY THE NAME OF WO LUN

In China, about twelve hundred years ago, a monk, by the name of Wo Lun, went to visit the Sixth Patriarch, Hui Neng, to present his understanding.

WO LUN said :
Wo Lun has skilful means
Enabling him to cut-off all thoughts.
In the face of circumstances
His mind is not aroused,
And daily, monthly, wisdom grows.
To whichHUI NENG replied :
Hui Neng has no skilful means, 
He does not cut-off all thoughts.
In the face of circumstances
His mind is often aroused.
So, how can there be a growth of wisdom ?
TONI PACKER commented :
For Hui Neng, there is just effortless, unselfconscious being. No time.
