They greet each other superficially,
While they are deeply conspiring.
Around the world we are busy roving,
And the Six Provinces to save people.
Whether you read stanzas for rehearsal,
Or for your self-cultivation, is your option.
We’ve explained too well for our compassion,
Worldlings! Turn around quickly.
So that you can see the Dharma being extraordinary,
And the edifices and jewels that look fantastic.
We are basically an ignorant rustic,
So He has not yet been well-bred.
The world is like a bell hanging by a thread,
We hope our fellows would return in earnest.
We neither mind if our work is the hardest,
Nor do we need anyone to pray and kowtow.
Drop superstitions and you will see your Tao,
Stop faking and you and the Ancient will meet.
Our forefathers’original practice,
Has not contrived such a fallacy.
For the Master Buddha ’s oracular legacy,
Study it hard and you will know its standards.
Ancients wrote heart-rending stanzas,
But no one would know them to harbor?
It is distressful to talk about the Heavenly Motor,
Conifer trees hardly surpass insightful exhortations.
You should stay away from entertaining places,
For it was clearly suggested by the old messages.
You should never forget your own race,
Lest you should suffer from a disgrace.
Forbear and wait for the Ancient,
Buddha and God will give you the alignment.
Though the Ancient were not wordy,
But their characters were full of integrity.
Our teaching targets the average person,
Not the elite as we are near Armageddon.
Young men should endure and wait for the time,
Thus you are deemed astute with foresight.
We exert ourselves to write mystical verses,
Our people! Commit to your searches.
Though the animals are mammals and birds,
They seek for the morality.
If animals even practice Tao ardently,
Why don’t the human give up their earthliness?
Practicing means repaying all your debts,
Which people often find in Scriptures.
The Eight Noble Truths are clear on papers,
The genuine legacy of Lord Shakyamuni.
The practicer must find out what each of them is,
We explain the first Truth, the Right Perception.
Your sharp mind assesses any phenomenon,
Don’t be misguided toward the wrong.
Whether a business relates to you or to the other,
You have to go to the bottom of the matter.
Merits and demerits are scrutinized several times,
To prevent the interference of skewed sights.
The Right Intention rates a high mention,
Remember what should deserve a retention.
Whether or not you are a master or servant,
It is good that you uphold the right median.
Wherever you revel in your love affairs,
Put them aside for the Six-Word to remember.
The Right Action is a tremendous subject,
Whatever occupation, keep your path straight.
You must not follow villains,
Who practice ruses to cheat their fellow human.
The Right Effort , whether in success or failure,
Is to hold on to the faith which you secure.
Whoever tries to undermine your faith,
Go on the one path that you keep straight.
The Right Livehood makes a great appeal,
Let your sacred soul manage your body, still.
Purify your Atman from all kinds of vice,
Then you may hope to reach the Paradise.
The Right Speech is engraved in your mind,
Your comments are clear and unbiased.
Speak things which are moral and decent,
Don’t add or delete them lest you should offend.
False exchanges are the root causes,
And the lies take origins in those.
Our past experience has helped Our formulation,
Right Mindfulness shows varied deploration.
While praying, do not make an error,
All tasks must be perfectly done by the prayer.
Never do things erratically,
During this time, you recite willy nilly.
The Right Concentration is very complicated,
Keep your mind at peace and unagitated,
Let your soul be quiet like a lake,
And its pure essence will be reinstated.
The wrong and the right are now mixed,
The practicer must early distinguish.
Four Noble Truths attract a certain attention,
We will brief you with a further mention.
The Suffering Source Truth has its door open,
To provide the role model of a good person.
You must initially work under a lot of strain,
So that you may become Buddha and Saint.
It is more glorious to ascend the Fairy Land,
The Suffering Cessation Truth has old wishes banned.
