Where beauty is, then there is ugliness;
where right is, also there is wrong.

*
Knowledge and ignorance are interdependent;
delusion and enlightenment condition each other.

*
Since olden times it has been so.
How could it be otherwise now?

*
Wanting to get rid of one and grab the other
is merely realizing a scene of stupidity.

*
Even if you speak of the wonder of it all,
how do you deal with each thing changing?

Few people believe their
Inherent mind is Buddha.
Most will not take this seriously,
And therefore are cramped.

 
They are wrapped up in illusions, cravings,
Resentments, and other afflictions,
All because they love the cave of ignorance.

Fenyang
