At the time of the Shari Kō Service, people had to compose poems indicating their wish to follow the way of the Buddha, so he composed:


yoso ni nado
Fotoke no miti wo
wa ga kokoro koso
sirube narikere
In what distant place
The Buddha’s path
Should I seek?
It is my own heart that
Shall be my guide.

The Chancellor and Former Grand Minister [Fujiwara no Tadamichi]
