"A hundred thousand worlds are flowers in the sky,
a single mind and body is moonlight in the water;
once the cunning ends and information stops,
at that moment there is no place for thought." -- Poet monk Han-Shan Te-Ch'ing, one of the major Buddhist thinkers and reformers of the late Ming period, in The Clouds Should Know Me By Now. It was Han-shan's belief that the three religions of China - Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism - ultimately originated from the same source.
