NIRVANA’S ENDLESS DAY
Music: Traditional// Lyrics: D. Hunt
Long have we sought for Truth’s Bright Light,
Long have we wondered in the night?
Lord Buddha hath found the holy way
That leads from night to Endless Day.
When shall we find the road to peace,
When earthly strife and hatred cease?
O weary soul that peace profound,
To Buddha’s Holy Law is found.
Where shall we learn that Law sublime,
Which leads us on the peace divine?
To Buddha’s Holy Law we turn,
The path of Truth and Peace to learn.
Why must we wonder many a year,
In pain and misery and fear?
The Eightfold Path of wondrous wealth,
Is hidden by the love of self.
And must we prey that we may find,
The strength to break the chains that bind?
By each one must the race be run,
And not by prayer is freedom won.
Whence comes the suffering of this life,
How can we end our state of strife?
By Buddha’s Law is justice known,
For each must reap what each has sown.
With love that never more shall wane,
We’ll praise Lord Buddha’s holy name,
And in the Dharma’s Noble way,
We’ll reach Nirvana’s endless Day.
《Brahma of my heart》
Do You remember the night
You lullabied me to sleep
Turning my tears to comfort and to laughter
Do You remember the days
Being the flowers in the sky
You show me wisdom and guide me all the way….
- You have sacrificed for me
Leaving heartprints of Your love
Brahma of my (either Hope or Home), Teacher and my Savior
You’re the Hero of my life
Gave me everything and more
Brahma of my joys, Brahma of my heart… -
I will remember Your Hopes
I will make Your dreams come true
I will turn Your fears into courage and compassion
My promise to take care of You
Share with You all the love I have
Please do believe me…. my love for You shines true…
