DOGEN ZENJI'S WAKASHU 道元禅師和歌集 (more waka with sounds)
(Dogen Zenji's Waka Collection: GROUP 2: Poems on the Lotus Sutra)
Selections from The Zen Poetry of Dogen, trans. by Steven Heine
__ __ __

Day and night
Night and day.
The Way of Dharma as everyday life;
In each act our hearts
Resonate with the call of the sutra.
Attaining the heart
Of the sutra;
Are not even the sounds
Of the bustling marketplace
The preaching of the Dharma?
