Supplication to the Trinity of
Wisdom, Compassion and Might

Yutang Lin


Wisdom of Manjusri sheds light on my mind;
Grant me original purity to see all things as they are.
Compassion of Avalokitesvara with tears moistens my mind;
Grant me innocence to become free from grumbling.
Might of Mahasthanaprapta shakes my mind;
Grant me awakening to become free from attachment.
The Trinity of Wisdom, Compassion and Might in harmony,
Grant me merits of Enlightenment to salvage sentient beings.


Written in Chinese on June 19, 1995 while giving Dharma talks in Honolulu and staying in the home of Professors Hui Chen and Hsiao-Chieh Cheng.

Subject: Poems from the Bath Pond

Dear Guru,

My wife and I would like to propose three poems for the Poems from the Bath Pond:

1. F0012 - Supplication to the Trinity of Wisdom, Compassion, and Might (proposed by Ying-Meng Liu)
To have the trinity of Wisdom, Compassion and Might is so important to our road to enlightenment.

2. F1333 - Flower, not Flower and F1335 - Four Layers of Flowers (proposed by Rong-Feng Liu)
These poems touched me with the comprehension of the harmonious union of Substance and Emptiness. (Ming Kong Bu Erh)


Thank you,
Rong-Feng
