生命之河 林钰堂


生命恆河浩荡流,
波涛曲折也自由,
清浊起灭循环绕,
从无一滴可滞留。

有情之生灭,生命之动静,一如圣河之奔流。从事法务之服务,犹如顺流之舟子,默默而恆久的引渡,成为生命大河之一部分,不再有世间的思虑。

Today is Christmas in western hemisphere and the Birthday of Amitabha Buddha in eastern hemisphere according to Chinese Buddhist tradition.
今天在西半球是圣诞节而在东半球依照中国佛教传统而言是阿弥陀佛的圣诞。

Disciple Kai Xin came out from a seven-day retreat today. And during the retreat Kai Xin was inspired to compose the attached praise.
弟子开心刚完成一个七天的闭关,且在闭关期间她因感应而造了附呈的赞颂。

I had revised it. The revised file attached.
我已审订。审订版附呈。

In addition, Kai Xin had asked a musician to compose a song using my poem, The River of Lives, as its lyric. And the musician had also asked a singer to sing the song. It is also ready today for all to enjoy. I will release the music score and the mp3 file soon. Right now just waiting for fixing a typo.
除此之外,开心已请一位音乐家将我的诗作〝生命之河〞谱曲。而此音乐家又请了一位声乐家将之唱出来。此曲亦是今天完成以供大家享听。只要等一个错字改好,我会很快的将乐谱mp3档案传给大家。

It is so wonderful to be able to offer to all these two works on such an auspicious day!
能够在这么吉祥的日子将这两个作品供养给大家真是太好了!


May all beings attain Enlightenment soon!
愿一切众生早日成佛!

The River of Lives Yutang Lin

The great river of lives flows constantly on a grand scale,
With waves rising and twisting at liberty and at will.
Clear or muddy, high or low, recycling without ceasing,
Never is there a drop that could linger despite the stream.

Comment:

Birth and death of sentient beings, motion and rest of lives are like the surging of a great river. Engaging in Dharma services is like a ferryman streaming down the river to render help constantly and unobtrusively. Thus the practitioner becomes part of the great river of lives, and is no longer bound by worldly considerations.
