The Great Way has no gate



“Has No Gate”
The great way has no gate
Calligraphy by Shimizu Kosho. The sentence is taken from the preface to the Mumonkan, the most prominent of all Koan collections, compiled by the Chinese monk Hui-kai (Jap. Ekai 1183-1260).

The Great Way has no gate
The thousand byways are its path
