When I was in college I came across the poem Hsin Hsin Ming in a little chap book. I was struck by it's beauty, clarity, and profundity. I have since considered this poem one of my favorite pieces of Zen literature. I have decided to give a commentary on this poem over the next several blogs. I am taking on something of a larger project then any of my other commentaries. I hope you enjoy them. This first blog has the poem in its entirety without commentary.
