Venerable Master Hsu Yun

  

SEE A GOLDEN DRAGON AT CH'AO YANG (OCEAN TIDE) CAVE

Moreover, at that time, agolden-scaled dragon rose out of the tremendous breakers which swell from the sea in front of Ch'ao Yang Cave. Although its entire body, four legs and fish-like tail were all visible, its head was not. After a while, it submerged. Perhaps this dragon appeard, sesing that a highly virtous, eminent Sangha member had arrived, and came out to welcome him. It was ab immortal guardian spirit who showed its respect by extending its protection.

 

The verse says:

 

Out in front of Ch'ao Yang Cave,

he saw a golden dragon,

Its entire body of golden hue,

its four legs in evidence,

Why indeed, I ask you,

came this pparition?

Just because a sage

now dwells on this shore.
