No doubt the opulent tend to alter their wives,
The Saints have left Us with meaningful statements.
How many are remorseful with self-assessments?
They ever think they, the smarter, disparage others,
They must not complain about their grievance later.
As they have to pay for their sinful commissions.
They are too haughty to see through others’ actions,
Thus they are keen to spout a lot of gossip.
Therefore, they should have lost their fellowship,
And could no longer share each other’s good ideas.
Who are quick-witted in the Six Provinces,
Should wake up seeking the mystical Tao?
We urge you never to let your esprit de corps out,
You need a unity to sow precious seeds.
You must be able to master yourself after you read,
Otherwise, Lord Buddha hardly provides an escort.
Our friendly Ark heads for Enlightenment Port,
The Tao literate should quickly embark,
Things will go past like rolling clouds charge,
Days and months go like a weaver swings.
As the day has just broken, so comes the evening,
Then the old year gives way to the new one.
How fast transpiring is the twelve months,
So too does the world change around.
Affluence is like a floating foam and cloud,
Things swap over again and again.
How many will survive the Sa-Ba Land,
And live beyond a century like the Old Banh?
At the Lower Age, people tend to die young,
Like Nhan Hoi , who passed at this age.
Provided We have two meager meals a day,
For self-cultivation’s sake, enjoy being frugal.
Owing to the Jade Emperor’s approval,
You may see the God Investiture on this planet.
He will punish the brute and degenerate,
And reward the accomplished filial and loyal.
These Stanzas are for security avowal,
For the world to enjoy a peace of mind.
In the Southern Peaks , gemstones hide,
Seabed prospecting requires great efforts.
We discern the expectations from our commoners,
When you got good seeds, quickly plow and plant.
Whoever tells you that We are the wrong men,
We don’t mind to put up with these slanders.
We wish you the following, in a word,
May you all soon enjoy blissful freedom.
