Venerable Master Hsu Yun

42. CROSSES THE SEA AND ARRIVES AT HU CHOU (RIVER COUNTY)

After crossing the sea and arriving on the shore, the Master continued to bow once every thrê steps. Despite the wind and rain, he did so day after day without interruption. During the night under the bright mơn, when the myriad sounds were hushed, he moved along, continuing to bow. Thus the daily distance he traveled was not great, and yet day after day he gradually made progress. Upon his arrival at Hu Chou, in the north of Chekiang Province, he temporarily bowing to rest for several days.

 

 

The verse says:

Hsuan Tsang brought back Sutra from

his journey to the Western Region.

By bowing his way to the northern mountains,

the Master requited his parents' kindness. 

On different roads to the same destination,

they display great power in their practice.

By personally travelling with real strides,

they taught those with affinities.
