Have you become an ascetic totally?
Can you shake off everything? Ready?
Can you easily return to the root
one neglect with another?
Have you opened all doors? And
in the hidden winter-night
have the long-stretched palmyra trees seen fire
in that transparent water?
Then come, right now,
hold the whole of it, pull it out;
Remember, there is no escape
anywhere, in any way, for you.
You've won the bet.
