Verse On Entertainment

伎乐聚会,
当愿众生,
以法自娱,
了伎非实。

– 文殊菩萨
    (华严经: 净行品11: 第5偈)

With music [and dance] at gatherings,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
with [the] Dharma personally enjoy,*
realising [that other] skills [and talents] are not real.’**

– Manjusri Bodhisattva
   (Avatamsaka Sutra: Chapter 11 On Pure Practices: Verse 5)

* As it is the Dharma that offers true lasting bliss.
** As worldly entertainment only offers fleeting and thus unsubstantial joy.

Please Be Mindful Of Your Speech, Namo Amituofo!
