Reciting the Sutra

Yutang Lin

Floral shadows decorate the fence with charm;
Moonlight plays in water flashing glistening waves.
Having finished reciting the Diamond Sutra,
the fragrance of sandalwood incense spreads afar;
The realm of all things being fumigated,
dust-like worldly thoughts just vanished.
