SPRING ARRIVES, FLOWERS ARE RED, LEAVES TURN GREEN BY THEMSELVES
(A poem of natural wisdom)
Spring arrives, flowers are red, leaves turn green by themselves
Autumn approaches, blossoms wither, leaves drift
We speak, are silent, act, are still - complete ease
Infinite wisdomdiscernssincerity, truth
Life impression, poem of natural wisdom by ShanlinZi follow the following original philosophy of education: "to comprehend the Tao, the understand reasons, to know self, to position self, to cultivate self, to conduct with righteousness; To enlighten truth, to approach goodness, to pursue beauty, selfless, great-love, sacrifice". Shanlinzi's Poems of Natural Wisdom promote an ideal of "creating poetic values in life; enjoying a life with poetic values". Philosopher, artist and educationist Shanlinzi dedicates this book to people who treat life with kindness.
Shanlin-Tzu writes, “I am the son of the heaven, the earth, oceans, lakes, rivers, mountains and forests. With a kindred heart, I will selflessly give my thoughts on truths of life to the people of the world, who gave birth to me, raise me and educated me. I sincerely wish the world, the home of all humankind, becoming a more peaceful, safe, beautiful and happy place to live.” I’d like to follow my teacher’s steps by acknowledging people who made this work possible.
