Ten Bulls of Zen | Ten Ox Herding Pictures | Poem 4

Welcome to poem number 4 of The Ten Bulls, and the fourth insight into the journey towards enlightenment.

Poem number four is titled “Catching the Bull”, and is written as follows:

“I seize him with a terrific struggle.
His great will and power
are inexhaustible.
He charges to the high plateau
far above the cloud-mists,
Or in an impenetrable ravine, he stands.”


The Meaning of the Fourth Ten Bulls Poem

Starting with the second half of this poem, “He charges to the high plateau, far above the cloud-mists, Or in an impenetrable ravine, he stands.”

The Source stands in an impenetrable ravine, where you can’t enter.

The Source exists in places you cannot perceive or imagine.

You can’t understand The Source, because The Source is beyond your human capacity to understand it.

This is hinting to you that The Source can not be accessed in any way but one.

The will and power of The Source are inexhaustible, meaning Source Will and power exists in abundance, and cannot be changed or controlled by exercising your Will.

To realize The Source, you must be free from exercising your will. Because Source Will cannot be changed or controlled by your Will.

And no matter how much you fight, no matter how much you struggle, you will never catch the bull as long as you are driven by your own Will.

To seize the bull, you must let go of your Will. Your Will must dissolve to nothing, so you are completely 100% desire-less.

You must open your heart and surrender your whole heart, being, life, and Will, to The Will of The Source.

And by putting an end to this struggle between your Will and Source Will, by not following unknown rivers and not walking endless paths, the Will of The Source guides you down the path that leads to Realizing The Source.

At which point, you feel, an become aware, of the inseparable Unity you share with The Source.
