Going on pilgrimage (Part 3)
Constantly advancing on the path of Liberation, the skillful practitioner always illuminates his or her own steps. Here are two verse poems containing the content of recording the feelings of a novice practitioner of the true Dharma Realm:
Go to the temple to find Buddha
Only see the statue sitting still,
The sound of a mule called Coc! Glass !
Listen to the sound of Zen doors.
Praying to see Buddha
In the boundless dharma realm,
Suddenly I feel unreal
Suddenly opened my eyes
Seeing Buddha being gentle
Look at me! The mind is overflowing
Going to Hoai Cam Pagoda
Deck ! Deck ! Hear from the side of numbness,
The sky was clear with clouds on all sides.
A new dream or a dream,
While infatuated, I thought I would not fall in love!
Hundred years of contemplation still entangled,
A thought born mind has sworn vows.
I find myself echoing forever
Ringing bells like sex soon come back!
