Poem
こころざし深き人にはいくたびもあはれみ深く奥ぞ教ふる
“Kokorozashi fukaki hito niwa ikutabi mo awaremi fukaku oku zo oshiuru.”

To the student who has a deep desire to learn the secrets of chanoyu, the teacher should spare no effort.

You should many a time compassionately impart the inner teachings to one who has a deeply willing mind.
