Boat of Birth and Death

Leaving far and far from this worldly life full of dust
 

Boat of Birth and Death

 

Whom does the earth with its tolerance considerately\r\nreceive?

\r\n\r\n

When coming back, his body has separated from his soul

\r\n\r\n

Does he hear his formless karma call his name?

\r\n\r\n

The boat of birth and death is floating unstably

\r\n\r\n

Going adrift for it has forgotten its home port and has\r\ndrifted ever since

\r\n\r\n

Countless wild dreams have come in his mind hubbub

\r\n\r\n

The moonlight has buried his choked voice and made it broken\r\nto pieces

\r\n\r\n

Hey! both the clouds and waves have ended peacefully

\r\n\r\n

The moon has come back to its pureness and its premevial\r\ngolden light.

\r\n\r\n

Translated into English by M.r Hoang Huan, layman.
