Verse On Shaving

剃除须发,
当愿众生,
永离烦恼,
究竟寂灭。

– 文殊菩萨
    (华严经: 净行品11: 第17偈)

When shaving to remove beard and hair,*
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
forever depart from afflictions,**
[and attain] ultimate tranquillity.’***

– Manjusri Bodhisattva
   (Avatamsaka Sutra: Chapter 11 On Pure Practices: Verse 17)

  • when shaving as a layperson or to be a monastic
    (as beard and hair represent worldliness)
    ** arising from attachment, aversion and delusion
    *** of Buddhahood’s bliss
