Talking to a Stone Buddha

Talking to a Stone Buddha

Hallo, Buddha, why do you cry?

In your stone heart, how much desire?

Why do your tears stream down the sea?

Why give your love to the pebble?


Oh Buddha, oh Buddha,

Why did you leave Nirvana?

What is here to search for?

Endless pain or sorrow?


Oh Buddha, oh Buddha,

Hurry now, leave Samsara!

Back to where no sorrow

Only joy eternal

Only love, no border.


Hallo Buddha,

Why do you smile?

And your stone heart is full of light!

Why do your arms embrace the world?

Why does your love shine forever?

Oh Buddha, oh Buddha

Oh Buddha, oh Buddha


Formosa (Taiwan) - February 2007
