Book 238 Intimate Talk with the Moon: Grass Is Most Resilient
by Sheng-yen Lu
As I was admiring the moon, sometimes I would step onto the lawn. The chilly night air of Seattle would penetrate my lama dress hugging my legs, and the dew on the grass would wet my feet.
“Don’t step on the grass!”
“Because the grass will die if you step on it!”
“It will not die. It is most resilient. The grass is brown now but it will turn green again. From green to brown, and from brown to green, how amazingly fast it will turn to a lush green lawn.”
I admire the little grass because flowers will wilt, and trees will fall or break, however only the little grass will be forever there.
Poem by Liang Jie:
Hilariously funny, hilariously funny,
Dharma talk of the non-sentient so amazing.
If talk could not be heard,
Then use the eyes to recognize the talk.
“The little grass is dharma talk of the non-sentient. It is saying, my love for you will never die. Amazing!”
In this life, of course we have many hindrances. They could be from society, from family, from other people, your friends, or my disciples.
They are like black clouds. Layers and layers covering the moon.
But I realize, the moon is still there.
There will be one day, the black layers will rip open.
And find the moon never left.
Hui Neng’s poem:
Not a single dharma doctrine can be seen
Just like the floating clouds covering the sun’s face
Don’t know what the dharma of emptiness holds
‘Til a flash of light comes from space
Thus creates a peak of excitement
How conveniently a mistake gets resolved
You know for yourself whether it is or not
For you can always see your inner spiritual light
This is Hui Neng’s poem. Can you understand?
The dharma of mindlessness is to have dharma knowledge without being captivated by it.
With the mind same as the Pure Land, can “floating clouds covering the sun” harm us?
If only you live for me and I live for you, then we are both as little grasses, that can’t be trampled to death.
Present you a poem:
I stand on the little grass with my head up towards the moon
I realize our encounter was not easy
Little grass has cyclic sequence
Elegant moon has cyclic sequence
We can always depend on each other
After suffering from separation
Our encounter would be even more amazing
I will always stand foolishly waiting for
Encounter and separation
Separation and encounter
Once again send off the elegant moon
