GREAT MASTER KYUNYO (923-973)
Eleven Poems on the Ten Vows of the Universally Worthy Bodhisattva
Entreaty for Turning the Dharma Wheel,
To the majestic assembly of buddhas
In the dharma realm,
I go forth and pray
For the dharma rain.
Disperse the blight of affliction
Rooted deep in the soil of ignorance,
And wet the mind's fields of living beings,
Where good grasses struggle to grow.
Ah. how happy is a moonlit autumn field,
Ripe with the fruit of knowledge.
