The story goes that this verse of four lines is the first utterance of Buddha Shakyamuni after awakening to true and complete enlightenment.
Deep and quiet, simple, clear, unformed.
A truth that is like nectar, I have found.
Whoever I explain it, no one will understand.
So, in the jungle, silent, I remain.
However, the Buddha did teach -- after being requested by Indra and Brahma who offered a clockwise-coiled white conch and a thousand-spoked golden wheel.
