Follow the reality and Live in truth

HE IS AWAKE. THE VICTORY IS HIS.
HE HAS CONQUERED THE WORLD.

HOW CAN HE LOSE THE WAY WHO IS BEYOND THE WAY?
HIS EYE IS OPEN. HIS FOOT IS FREE.
WHO CAN FOLLOW AFTER HIM?

THE WORLD CANNOT RECLAIM HIM OR LEAD HIM ASTRAY,
NOR CAN THE POISONED NET OF DESIRE HOLD HIM.

HE IS AWAKE! THE GODS WATCH OVER HIM.

HE IS AWAKE AND FINDS JOY IN THE STILLNESS OF MEDITATION
AND IN THE SWEETNESS OF SURRENDER.

HARD IT IS TO BE BORN, HARD IT IS TO LIVE,
HARDER STILL TO HEAR OF THE WAY,
AND HARD TO RISE, FOLLOW, AND AWAKE.

YET THE TEACHING IS SIMPLE. DO WHAT IS RIGHT.
BE PURE. AT THE END OF THE WAY IS FREEDOM.

TILL THEN, PATIENCE.

IF YOU WOUND OR GRIEVE ANOTHER, YOU HAVE NOT LEARNED DETACHMENT.

OFFEND IN NEITHER WORD NOR DEED. EAT WITH MODERATION.
LIVE IN YOUR HEART.
SEEK THE HIGHEST CONSCIOUSNESS.

DO NOT LIVE IN THE WORLD IN DISTRACTION AND FALSE DREAMS,
OUTSIDE THE LAW.

ARISE AND WATCH. FOLLOW THE WAY JOYFULLY.
FOLLOW THE WAY OF VIRTUE JOYFULLY.
THROUGH THIS WORLD AND BEYOND.

FOR CONSIDER THE WORLD -- A BUBBLE, A MIRAGE.
SEE THE WORLD AS IT IS, AND DEATH SHALL OVERLOOK YOU.

COME, CONSIDER THE WORLD, A PAINTED CHARIOT FOR KINGS,
A TRAP FOR FOOLS.
BUT HE WHO SEES GOES FREE.

AS THE MOON SLIPS FROM BEHIND A CLOUD AND SHINES,
SO THE MASTER COMES OUT FROM BEHIND HIS IGNORANCE AND SHINES.

THIS WORLD IS IN DARKNESS.
HOW FEW HAVE EYES TO SEE!
HOW FEW THE BIRDS
WHO ESCAPE THE NET AND FLY TO HEAVEN!

SWANS RISE AND FLY TOWARDS THE SUN.
WHAT MAGIC!
SO DO THE PURE CONQUER THE ARMIES OF ILLUSION AND RISE AND FLY.

IF YOU SCOFF AT HEAVEN AND VIOLATE THE LAW,
IF YOUR WORDS ARE LIES, WHERE WILL YOUR MISCHIEF END?

THE FOOL LAUGHS AT GENEROSITY.
THE MISER CANNOT ENTER HEAVEN.
BUT THE MASTER FINDS JOY IN GIVING
AND HAPPINESS IS HIS REWARD.

AND MORE --
FOR GREATER THAN ALL THE JOYS OF HEAVEN AND OF EARTH,
GREATER STILL THAN DOMINION OVER ALL THE WORLDS,
IS THE JOY OF REACHING THE STREAM.
