Part IV: Taking Ordination in Korea

 

by. Ven. Beopjeong

 

 

To Lean on My Own Back

 

 

My only wish is to live simply

 

And lead a life as an ordinary man.

 

Life which run naturally on its course

 

According to my feelings and my will.

 

To lead a life which reflects who I truly am

 

As no one else can live on my own behalf

 

 

One must spend time in solitude.

 

To live a simple life.

 

One becomes simple and pure

 

When time is spent alone

 

And the world of meditation will open its door

 

 

Human existence is fundamentally about being alone.

 

Solitude like the lotus flower,

 

Never becomes soiled by muddy water it floats on.

 

To lead a life of solitude is not to be corrupted

 

But stay pure and free.

 

Not to live alienated, but remain as a whole, unabashed.

 

 

Human must not lean on another

 

But rely solely on one’s own back

 

Rely on one’s own, and rely on the truth.

 

 

Your original self in found

 

In the centered mind,

 

Never to lean on but only to one’s own self.
