12 Famous Verses For Deep Concentration – 12-十二时颂-鸡鸣丑


Cock Crowing 0100-0300 Hours

A round marble has been clearly bright for long.

Linking it inward and outward but nothing can be found.

Manipulating with phenomena will result a random image.

No head and no hands can be seen.

This marble is immortal even when world is destroyed.

Listen to me if you are still not enlightened.

Just hide it as is now without any word.

(12 of 12 verses, by Ancient Chinese Monk Zi-Gong, Liang Dynasty)
