Yesterday and today are not different,
Coming and going don't exist.
Although you go, there is no place you reach.
Although you come, there is no place you arrive at.
"Coming and going"?! What are you talking about?
Everything exists just as it is.
Flowers blossom and birds sing,
Plants, trees, mountains and streams are dancing together.
On ten-thousand mountains peaks,
flowers blossom and bear fruit, their flavors reaching everywhere.
Buddha is taking care of everything in the universe.
There's no high or low.
Big or small doesn't exist.
Everyone is precious. Everyone is outstanding.
Without beginning or end, everything is circling one point.
Then what do you cling to, what would you let go of?
Everything is just as it is.
With one thought, you can become a Buddha.
With one thought, you can fall in the great ocean.
All beings throughout the universe are singing dharma-songs.
Both Buddhas and unenlightened beings see the same world,
The only difference is whether they are free from the prison of their own thoughts.
if you understand what I've said and Put it into practice,
All beings will reach their destination.
