12 Famous Verses for Deep Concentration- 8 – 十二时颂 -日入酉


Sunset Time: 1700-1900 Hours

Sensual world of delusion lasts not for long.

A cuisine of Zen pleasure is not intended to consume.

Not even eager to drink the wine of ignorance.

Nothing to be disposed, no object is to guard.

A carefree and unfettered life which has never been experienced before.

Even though someone learns a lot and   
is knowledgeable about historical and modern issues.

He is still an ignorant idiot who walks out of the right path.

(8 of 12 verses, by Ancient Chinese Monk Zi-Gong, Liang Dynasty)  

十二时颂 日入酉
