The Smile of Emptiness and Nothingness

written by: Hongri Yuan

translated by: Yuanbing Zhang

 

Fifteen thousand years ago

You were a king.

And thirty thousand years ago

You were a slave

Your past life was a long scroll of times

And the next life? How short ten thousand years are!

Yesterday is emptiness and nothingness,

Tomorrow is emptiness and emptiness

Where are you at this time

Emptiness and nothingness, Emptiness and nothingness

Buddha halo, the smile of emptiness and nothingness

 

空无的笑容

 

一万五千年前

你是个国王

而三万年前

你是个奴隶

你的前世是一册册时光长卷

而来世呢 一万年何其短暂

昨天空无 明天空无

此时你在何处

空无 空无 如来的光环 空无的笑容
