Hanshan is one of the greatest sages of Zen Buddhism and Taoism that you’ve never heard of. He is affectionately known as Cold Mountain. His poems are some of the most underrated in the world. The poems of Cold Mountain are transformative and highlight the pitfalls of society and the benefits of a living a life as a hermit, detached from the world. In this video I will share three of my favorite poems by Hanshan which are a blend of three of the greatest translations by Red Pine, Gary Snyder, and the late and great Burton Watson.
