not get wet, nor is the water broken. Although its light is wide and great,
the moon is reflected even in a puddle an inch wide. The whole moon and

water. You cannot hinder enlightenment, just as a drop of water does not
hinder the moon in the sky.
The depth of the drop is the height of the moon. Each reflection, however
long or short its duration, manifests the vastness of the dewdrop, and
realises the limitlessness of the moonlight in the sky.
Dogen (1200-53), Japanese Zen Buddhist teacher
