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.
