Let others slander me (from The Song of Enlightenment)

by Hsuan Chueh of Yung Chia / Yoka Genkaku

English version by International Institute for the Translation of Buddhist Texts
Original Language Chinese

Let others slander me;
I bear their condemnation.
Those who try to burn the sky only exhaust themselves.
When I hear it, it's just like drinking sweet dew.
Thus smelted and refined, suddenly one enters the inconceivable.

-- from Song of Enlightenment: By Great Master Yung Chia of the T'ang Dynasty, Edited by Tripitaka Master Hua / Translated by International Institute for the Translation of Buddhist Texts
