Poem: The stony field is even better as a practice place. Dull picks and hoes are indispensable for the practice, and keep them safe. After Master Bei. The Buddhist Dharma is transmitted through dull hoes instead of robes and bowls. If you keep the blades of hoes stay the same even after you hoed the stony field, you are considered skillful. After hard sweating work, you will find time to spare. For foolish people, working in the field is a better way to practice, rather than spending restless time sitting on meditation cushion. Isn"t the food you receive from the soil a gift from heaven and earth? Receive both your bodies and minds from the soil. If you get them from the soil, you will be considered as a skillful worker.
