Final poem by Ven Sheng Yen

The Buddhist Channel, Feb 5, 2009

We dedicate this page to Chan Master Sheng Yen, who passed away in a hospital in Taiwan on Tuesday. Shortly before his death, he composed this poem:


Busy with nothing, growing old.
Within emptiness, weeping, laughing.
Intrinsically, there is no "I."
Life and death, thus cast aside
