Always working alone, always walking alone (from The Shodoka)

Always working alone, always walking alone (from The Shodoka)

Always working alone, always walking alone,
The enlightened one walks the free way of Nirvana
With melody that is old and clear in spirit
And naturally elegant in style,
But with body that is tough and bony,
Passing unnoticed in the world.

by Hsuan Chueh of Yung Chia / Yoka Genkaku
