A large jar from Bat Trang with appliquéd images of Buddha (two) and Avalokitesvara (two) and an inscription:

The Yuntai's Zhengu Temple (or Yuantai's Zhengu Temple)
The Stream and Dechen Woods

The grandeur of the Soul transcends the threefold division of the Universe
Gracious favors benefit the myriads of people

One stroke of the whip rouses the sleeper lost in a dream
The third eye best apprehends the vanity of Human affairs.
