Talking about my generation:
So many busy men,
broad in their educations, broad their views,
but they don’t know a thing about their very own natures,
and they wander way off the Way.
If they really saw what’s real,
why would they offer us stale empty dreams?
In the single mantra, now, the heart,
you learn to know your own,
seeing what the Buddha sees.
(translation by J. P. Seaton)
