傳燈 Passing the Torch

with one comment

This is one of my favorite songs, often performed by the Chinese Orchestra in my undergrad university.

I did not realize that this is a Buddhist song, but I love the tune so much. The passing of torch is applicable in every endeavour of human life, from learning to surviving. Even to love needs courage and mercy.

Everyone is a bodhisattva
Everyone comes to this world from a saintly birthplace
Every heart is merciful and beneficent,
Using holy and pure Buddha light to ignite the heart light
為了眾生上法航 勤勤理宣講
For the sake of sentient beings to climb aboard the dharma boat,
Diligently explaining the truth.
為了大道傳十方 捨身去開荒
For the sake of propagating the Great Dao to all corners of the world,
Give ones life to pioneering Dao.
Everyone has the utmost power.
Every heart has unbounded prospect.
Sentient beings lives are touched and all smell sweet.
Passing the torch of the Great Dao that shines across centuries and generations.

Love this very much: 每一個人有極大力量, 每一顆心有無限展望
