PAN-AMERICAN DHARMADHATU III
Thick oak tree trunk
Is hard to break with two hands.
Thick oak ego
Skandha tree trunk
Is easier to break by the two hands of the vajra master.
Lovely sites beautiful to look at
That is Dharmadhatu.
Some Dharmadhatus are tall and skinny,
Colored with luscious leaves;
Some Dharmadhatus are fat and stocky,
Weighted with delicious fruit;
Some Dharmadhatus are thorny and tough,
Dotted with bright berries;
Some Dharmadhatus are bending,
Swayed by wind;
Some Dharmadhatus are upright,
Growing n the midst of a giant forest.
Oh such Dharmadhatu jungle--
It is beautiful.
Wandering in the Dharmadhatu forest
You meet meek chipmunks
Doing their own little duties right and left,
It is quite an experience to be in the midst of Dharmadhatu jungle.
Glory be to the Forestry Department of Vajradhatu,
That such jungle has been taken care of and appreciated.
However, dry twigs and wounded branches need to be pruned,
So that we could nurse the cosmic universal pan-American
It is nice to be a jungle man,
I send my love to the invincible perpetuating jungle of Dharmadhatus.
