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 “Returning across the lake from our monastery at Stone-Screen Cliff.”

and when thoughts lull, the inner pattern abides.
