The Great Way PoemThe Great Way is not difficult
for those not attached to preferences.
When neither love nor hate arises,
all is clear and undisguised.
— Hsin-Hsin Ming
The Hsin-Hsin Ming, considered to be the first Zen poem, is a simple yet profound teaching on the Faith-Mind or Buddha nature in the true spirit of Zen. It has been attributed to Seng-t'san (Sosan, Jap.), the third Zen Patriarch, who lived in the 6th century. The first two verses of this treasured poem are finely engraved on the Great Way Bracelet along with an enso, or Zen Circle. A 12-page booklet with the complete text of the Hsin-Hsin Ming accompanies each bracelet or cuff.
The Great Way Bracelet is möbius-shaped, and measures 1/4" at the widest point and 8 3/4" around. Made in USA. Matte sterling silver. Exclusive to our catalog.
