Mystery Within Mystery

These two (the Secret and its manifestations)

Are (in their nature) the same;

They are given different names

When they become manifest.

Reaching from the Mystery into the Deeper Mystery

Is the Gate to the Secret of All Life.

chih = (it) becomes

yu = again, ~to a higher degree

hsüan = mysterious, primal
