(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.
