Eleven Poems on the Ten Vows of the Universally Worthy Bodhisattva
Entreaty for the Buddha to Live in this World
Though all the buddhas
Have fulfilled the purpose of their coming,
I will join my palms and pray
That they will remain in the world.
From bright dawn to dark night,
I have found a friend who will intercede for us.
Knowing this truth,
How sad those who have gone astray.
Ah, were the water of our minds clean,
His reflected image should shine there.
