A sunny day, our home town displays.
Crowded ways, so many cars today.
Sunset reddens the mountains far away,
Spring returns in a welcoming way!
I miss You so, dear Master, always.
Where are You today?
Meditating on the mountain-top,
Or lecturing in a foreign land far away?
Painting a picture, dear Master,
Or chanting a poem on this inviting day?
Cooking a wonderful dish, as always,
Or playing a game of chess today?
Oh! How I wish my Master:
Though busying in the universe,
Have a few moments of leisure.
May all the Buddhas,
Accompanying Master, and

Source of happiness
From what wondrous method
Do I derive?
Quan Yin Method, that's where!
Oh the Supreme Almighty
Disseminator of the treasures
Respectable loving Mother
Because of Your grace
I can now hold my head high
Physically bound Spiritually in paradise Barbed-wire fence Carries no significanceThat day when Thy condescending footsteps
Freshly-sown seedlings require
TLC* of the tiller day and night
Infant seedlings delicate weak shaking wind-bound
Flowers though bloomy suffered many stormy rains
Although in their prime already tattered and in rags
Injurious insects like jealousy of the world
Just a slight carelessness
And the karmic cycle of "cause and effect"
Repeats itself nonstop!
Holy Mother comes by
Worldly dreams awakened
Oh people of the world
Come not in the way of the Holy One
"Pitiful sentient beings", Her heartaches.
But She cares nothing about Her worldly self
Dusting dirt, She opens heavens, closes hell
So that human beings may one day
Be liberated from this contaminated place!
We join here today
To combine our glory to embellish the earth Together
Let's sing and dance
Praise "The Seeder"!
* Tender Loving Care

Oh God! Who is Your most beloved child?
Who for the peace of the world truly toils!
Who strives spreading the gospel,
And brings all beings back to Your Feet!
We all know who She is,
The Supreme Master Ching Hai!
Oh God! Did You hear?
The pitiful and helpless cry...
Crying for freedom, crying for peace!
Do not let their hope be lost in Thee!
Oh God! Why are You so heartless?
To see our most beloved Master,
Also Your most loyal child,
Alone She shoulders all the miseries,
For the refugees, for the world peace,
Anxiety burns within Her! And mournfully She cries!
Oh God! Please listen to our prayer!
We hate to see humans in despair!
Brothers inflicting one another.
Please hurry to stop this disaster!
