POVERTY AND WEALTH - Giàu Nghèo



We can be poor but never be poor in love.
Live mindfully, in a way that we can share 
                              our time, energy, and love.
Be giving and generous of what you have, 
                             even if it’s just a little bit,
and whether it is a smile, loving speech, 
                             deep listening, understanding, or noble silence.


We can be poor but never be poor in love, integrity, and character.
There is no distinction in giving and receiving.


We can be poor but never be poor in love!
Keep your thoughts, speech, and actions 
                          pure with sincere intentions.
Cultivate your good deeds and avoid the bad ones.
Everything is interconnected;
We inter-are
just like we depend on our bodies and our breath.


We can be poor but never be poor in love!

Phe Bach


GIÀU NGHÈO


Ta còn nghèo nhưng không nghèo tình nghĩa
Sống xẻ chia thời lượng, chút tình
Hãy san sẻ những gì bạn có
Dù nụ cười hay lời nói trung trinh

Ta còn nghèo nhưng đừng nghèo phẩm chất
Sạch và thơm từ lời nói đến việc làm
Xin hãy cho vì khi cần thì nhận
Đời tương quan như hơi thở thân tâm

Ta còn nghèo xin đừng nghèo tình nghĩa!

THREE SHORT POEMS by Phe Bach


THREE SHORT POEMS 


1

As the dawn unfolds, the fog is disappearing
As life unfolds, we're changing...
Life and death is as light as a ray of sunlight
Time flies as the coming and going of sunshine.


2

Just like that, half of our lives traveling the world,
Raindrops, the rays of sunshine – the remedy of relaxing our heart
Tonight, the haves and have-nots are insignificant!

3

Wandering the empty alleys in the quiet streets
There are homeless people taking naps at ease
Suddenly, realizing an empty coffin that we’re all will laying inside.

The Gigantic Ancient Pristine Eagle Wood*

THE GIGANTIC ANCIENT PRISTINE EAGLE WOOD *
      For Zen Master Tue Sy

The Zen Master just sitting there
Whiling, he is thinking,
The sunshine and sunset just come and gone.
The dews just form and unform.
Greeting Thầy, the sun and moon have wandered in and out of the terrace (window)
The classic ancient pristine Eagle Wood is just

Forever not the end of thought but a new beginning.
