A poem in praise of Ven. Master Xuecheng.

The heart of a virtuous teacher illuminates mine:
Like the shining sun, it is radiant,
Like the moon, it is crystal clear,
Like the Void, it is magnificent.

The heart of a virtuous teacher illuminates mine:
Like the light of the sun, it is brilliant,
Like a rock, it is sturdy,
Like the Dharma realm, it transcends this reality.

Open your heart and immerse yourself in his nurture,
Open your heart and accept his enlightenment.
Awaken self-nature and join body and mind together,
Reach the one true Dharma realm without defilement.
Open your heart to see his works of wonder,
Open your heart to witness his enlightenment.
In the three realms, he mercifully ferries all who wander, to the other shore,
Countless sentient beings rely on his mercy.
Bow to the virtuous teacher and praise him the most eminent.

The heart of a virtuous teacher illuminates mine,
Like the open sea, its warmth is pleasant,
Like Mother Earth, nothing is more expansive.
Like the morning dew, it is refreshing.

The heart of a virtuous teacher illuminates mine,
Like a rolling river, it is abundant,
Like mountains, it is grand,
Like sweet nectar, it is potent.

Open your heart and immerse yourself in his nurture,
Open your heart and accept his enlightenment.
Open your mind and converge into the Buddha’s light,
Achieve the goal of unobstructed view, to rise above the endless Samsara.
Open your heart to contemplate his teaching,
Open your heart to see what is already evident.
See the five skandhas as empty and attain Bodhi nature,
Countless beings will experience the truths revealed in Dharma.
Admire pure realm in which we reside.
