Denkôroku, Case 19: The Venerable Kumorata

Teisho presented by Arno Hess on 21/04/2024 at the Pathway Zen Zenkai at Spring Hill, QLD, Australia.


The Nineteenth Patriarch, Venerable Kumorata: Once the Venerable Kayashata, while instructing the
Nineteenth Patriarch said, “Long time ago, the World-Honored One wrote: ‘One thousand years after my passing a
great personage will appear in the Land of Gesshi [Tokhara] and will make the profound teaching flourish.’ Now
you have met me and it corresponds to that auspicious fortune.” Hearing this, the master (Kumorata) was aroused to
the wisdom of former lives.


Smashing the body that appeared separately in various former lives,
I now meet the Old Fellow.
