What Am I?

Ueno Dirt Circle

There is no mind.

There is no consciousness.

There is no thing to call my own.

There is no path.

There is no destination.

There is no where I can go.

There is no God, no Devil, no Heaven, no Hell.

There is no Life, no Death,

No Earth, no Moon,

No Yesterday, no Tomorrow.

There is not even What Is.

No Moment,


There is only the word, explaining, describing,

Doing its best to build the image,

To help me to believe.

But I cannot.

The one interpreting the word, is also the word.

No words remain for Takuin...

What Am I?
