KOAN: Zuigan's Permanent Principle

Wisdom Quarterly; Roshi Jeff Albrizze, PasaDharma.org, Case 75, The Book of Equanimity
PasaDharma's free meditation and koan study group, Thursdays (Wisdom Quarterly)

PREFACE TO THE ASSEMBLY
Even though you try to call it thus, it quickly changes.
At the place where knowledge fails to reach, it should not be talked about.
Here: Is there something to penetrate?

MAIN CASE
Attention!
Zuigan asked Ganto, "What is the original, permanent principle?"
Ganto replied, “Moving.”
Zuigan asked, “How about when it moves?"
Ganto said, "You don’t see the original, permanent principle.”
Zuigan was flabbergasted.
Ganto remarked, "When you agree, you are not liberated from the senses and their dust.
When you don’t agree, you sink into life and death forever."

APPRECIATORY VERSE
Perfect jewel without flaw, a great gemstone needs no polish.
Where the person of the Way is praiseworthy, she has no sharp edges.
When the path of agreement is forgotten, senses and dust are empty,
Liberated body without dependence. Alive and frisky!
