Joshu’s Great Death
Joshu asked Touzi, “So, what about the time when the person of great death returns to the living?”
Touzi said, “It is not permitted to go traveling by night; the light must be cast to arrive.”Verse In the middle of life there is an eye; turning back is the same as death. Why must the jealous physician do an exam of the family? The esteemed words of the ancient Buddha did not arrive together. One doesn’t know who is let loose to scatter dust and sand.
