Verse in commemoration of the Great Water, Land, and Air Dharma Assembly, written for the Dharma Delegations from Mainland China and Taiwan on September 2, 1992.
The Mainland and Taiwan are one family,
Buddhism does not discriminate between you, me, and others,
When the Sangha is in harmony, the country flourishes.
Citizens combine their strength, and the nation's affairs thrive.
Sages appear in the world, and auspicious omens manifest.
When a worthy, bright one comes to rule, contention and greed dissolve.
When people are subdued by virtue, they are happy at heart.
Do not use schemes to tyrannize the world.
By Shramana Hsuan Hua of Long White Mountain
In Commemoration of the Completion of the Transmission of the Three Platforms of Precepts at the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas, USA.
The Three Platforms of Great Precepts were completed today.
But the toil has not stopped either inside or outside.
The events have passed before our eyes,
And without our knowing, everything has been included.
Ming Yang, Abbot of Dragon Flower Monastery, Shanghai, China
