In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re continuing our series on the ancient form of Chinese poetry called shan-shui, or Rivers-and-Mountains, using selections from The Mountain Poems of Hsieh Ling-yun. Today we’re using a selection from “Dwelling in the mountains #47.”
I’ve distilled all antiquity in the steady cycle of seasons,
trusting to the enlightened insight of five-fold vision,
and now, abiding by this wisdom, I let my brush rest,
let shallow thoughts settle away and these words end.
