Opening Poem for Lectures on the Four Vows

However numberless sentient beings may be,
our vow to liberate them is firm.
Steady and painstaking in our silent sitting,
we focus on practicing the Way.
We must sever our limitless deluded attachments
And reveal the innate truth in all people!

Closing Poem for Lectures on the Four Vows

The true Dharma flourishes, but prospering also are obstructive forces;
Dark clouds throw shadows causing feelings of frustration.
If you don't know what the Way to enlightenment,
Raise your own lamp and see what’s right under your feet!
