The poem “The Mind of Absolute Trust”

the Third Chinese Patriarch of Chán after Bodhidharma and thirtieth Patriarch after Siddhartha Gautama Buddha. He also is best known as the putative author of the famous Chán poem, Xinxin Ming (Inscription on Faith in Mind).

This poem talks about how to find the truth in reality life. It says: “The great way isn’t difficult / for those who are unattached to their preferences” According what Roger Housden wrote in the analyzing article about this poem, he says: “In reality, to be unattached to one’s preferences is both the easiest thing in the world and apparently one of the most difficult.” It’s true that sometimes, what we see is just a reflation of what we think, and the truth is always hidden from us as we hardly see in a unattached way.
