This Whole Sky | Case 06

06. UNIVERSE STRIKING

A monk asked Ummon, “What swallows the universe?”

A clear sense of time Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer the well travelled way

Ummon strikes “Deep!“   What changes?

Note: Ummon's staff sprouting from the ground — thick as reeds tall grasses

rain falls striking the great Earth — seasons changing with no distractions
