Silly One! The world is in fact once a huge stage; there is no need to shed tears. Silly one! The stage is actually a small world; one may as well pretend to be crazy.
Life is like a deep pot; though having reached
the bottom, if you are willing to strive hard, any
direction you then face will be nowhere but up.
Every time I finish writing a book, it would feel
as if I had just crossed a giant desert, with the
lonely and empty feeling of a completely solitary
traveler. Nevertheless, once the desert is crossed,
what awaits ahead will be an oasis.
Wasting time stumbling and suffering, because
of one’s desire to do the undoable and tread the
untreadable. Within a flash of a moment, having
stumbled many times, one finally realizes that
it is most difficult to become enlightened to the
meaning of ignorance.
Amidst the hazy rain, where can the lone
traveler go, on this shore and the other shore?
Only siding with Princess Miao Shan, one of
pervading compassion─how many innumerable
kalpas of cultivation did she take to finally
nurture the fruit of longevity and tree of Bodhi?
Truly awkward it is for an ordinary human, a
commoner like me to be called “an ageless man.”
Suddenly, there is no place to settle my heart.
Alas! Dangerous the torrential waves are. Far
away the evil sea is. Only the ferry of compassion
can help me cross it.
