As He Returns West Carrying One Shoe,
He Encounters Song Yun

只履西归 遇见宋云

Patriarch Bodhidharma then pretended to enter Nirvana. People buried his coffin and thought the matter was finished. However, right at that time, a diplomatic representative from Northern Wei called Song Yun met Patriarch Bodhidharma in the vicinity of the Qin Range on the road to Zhongnan Mountain. When they met, Patriarch Bodhidharma was carrying one shoe in his hand. He said to Song Yun, "The king of your country died today. Your country is in turmoil. Return quickly! There is work to be done."

于是达摩祖师就假装入灭,人们将他装在棺材埋到坟里,以为没有事了。可是就在同时,北魏有一个使臣叫宋云,在秦岭附近,也就是中国终南山那一带,碰见达摩祖师,一只手拎着一只鞋,对宋云说:“你的国家有事,国王今天死了,国内现在很乱,赶快回去呀!”

Song Yun thought, "Nothing is happening in my country." Then he asked Patriarch Bodhidharma, "Great Master, where are you going then?"

宋云想:“我的国家没有什么事啊?”然后就问达摩祖师说:“那么大师您到什么地方去?”

"Back to India," he replied.

他说:“我回印度去。”

"Great Master, to whom did you transmit your Dharma?"

“大师,您的法传给谁了?”

Patriarch Bodhidharma replied, "In China after forty years, there will be someone able ('Ke')." "Able" was a reference to Great Master Hui Ke.

达摩祖师说:“在中国四十年以后,可是也。”可,就是说慧可大师;我的法在中国四十年以后,有位慧可大师,就是我的传法人。
