Verses On Summer

盛暑炎毒,当愿众生,
舍离众恼,一切皆尽。

暑退凉初,当愿众生,
证无上法,究竟清凉。

– 文殊菩萨
(华严经: 净行品: 第127-128偈)

[During] sweltering summer’s* fierce heat,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
renounce and depart from all afflictions,*
[with] all [of them] exhausted.’

[When] summer recedes and cooling begins,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings,
realise the unsurpassable Dharma‘s**
ultimate coolness.’

– Manjusri Bodhisattva
(Avatamsaka Sutra: Chapter 11 On Pure Practices: Verse 127-128)

* or very hot weather
** of the Buddha’s complete wisdom
