Good Spring Poems composed by Venerable Master Thích Trừng Sỹ
When Spring comes, everyone has more joy.
Maitreya Buddha in him is smiling,
All are happy and joyful,
For New Spring to be very bright.
Dwelling in confidence in the right Dharma
Practitioners who are at peace smiles
stably and freely in cultivation
To celebrate the Present Spring is so much happy.
New Year has come with the mind of serenity
This year everything has been over
Dharma learning and Dharma practice for us are always diligently
To spread love and compassion into life.
Spring of Mind
Spring comes to recommend the words of prophecy
As if it silently wishes to see off winter pass by
All things are impermanent and changing
Only the Spring of Mind is ever-beautiful.
The Mind of Spring
Spring has arrived all over the country
For families of happiness and for people at peace
The Mind of Spring appears everywhere,
Shine with the light of the Dharma for life more Spring.
The Tathagata Spring is present in us
By the virtue of cultivation and the vow of helping people
Dharma propagation everywhere is no any obstacle
Bringing joy and happiness to every family.
New Spring gives life more fresh color
The old and young open their happy smiles
Everyone and every family that cultivate together
Celebrate the New Spring with their peaceful smiles.
When spring comes, humanity feels happy,
Spring has come, a hundred flowers are blossoming,
Everyone and every family are happy,
To celebrate the New Spring more happily
Happy to meet each other to celebrate the New Spring,
Wishing each other in the light of compassion,
Children and adults all are joyful,
Building the love of Dharma friends is truly earnest and poetic.
The Endless Spring is present in us,
Spring heart is imbued with all families,
Spring Mind shines in cultivation
Spring love shows the nature of altruism.
Spring which has come dedicates the sound of meditation music
For practitioners with the light of Celestial Spring
This year, Spring comes long and peacefully
Young children are as beautiful as fairies.
When Spring comes, humanity feels joyful,
Spring arrives, hundred flowers bloom smilingly,
People are delighted with their happy bodies
Their families are joyful with their delightful hearts.
Spring comes and arrives really boundlessly,
For all human beings and gods,
A season of the new Spring is so marvelous,
The eternal Spring is at the door of Meditation.
When the spring comes, humanity ends misery,
For people to be awake in the light of the golden Dharma,
For people to cultivate and learn the Dharma more diligently,
For young generations to get glorious.
Spring comes in the eye of meditation house,
To bring the Dharma practitioner out of suffering immediately
Those dwelling stably in the right Dharma
Their minds are awakened and free from sorrows.
Spring comes, countless birds twitter,
To bring people across to the shore of freedom
The body and mind are at ease and peace
To transfer inspiration between students and teachers.
The Happy Spring is gentle clear green,
The wind brings the drifting clouds quickly
Each flock of birds gathers together
Celebrating the coming Spring welcomes people to the festival.
Kneeling sincerely down in this solemn place,
One’s respectful heart is forwarded to the Three Jewels,
Praying for the noble Sangha Body,
Living in harmony to spread the Dhamma Path.
Wishing for all places of peace and joy,
Escaping from ignorance to find out liberation,
and praying for families and relatives today,
The full health, the happy reunion of the Dhamma,
Together aspiring to ancestors and parents,
Penetrating the Dharma to keep away from the evil path.
The Spring coming resounds, resounds,
With joy of eagerness in how dear,
Life is fresh and joyous as one’s heart blossoms,
Feelings of bliss are full of the Buddha,
Who leads us to the Dhamma,
Boundless love of all sounds of singing.
Despite tomorrow, when years and months pass,
One still steps on the path of the Buddha,
Whose love is eternally forever,
The Buddha in one’s heart is the source of warm sunshine.
Celebration of Spring coming, we sing the Dharma songs,
Welcoming the New Year, we are happy together with all families.
