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.
