Mountains and waters right now
are the actualization of the ancient Buddha way.
Each, abiding in its phenomenal expression,
Because mountains and waters
have been active since before the Empty Eon,
they are alive at this moment.
Because they have been the self
since before form arose
they are emancipation realization.
