Sutra of Ayra-Tara vs. 1, 2, 4, 5 & 8
Homage to the Three Jewels
Homage to Venerable Tara!
Having reached this gem-like paradise,
Understand actions and their results:
Keep to good and leave evil aside!
For whoever practices wrong actions
Will, in the life that is to come, fall down.
Beasts are dumb and stupid; one eats another;
Up weary paths, down cliffs, they climb and fall,
In panic, terror-stricken, trembling with fear,
Full of caution--one cannot conceive their sufferings.
Sentient beings who are born in hells
Are led against their wills by vicious Yamas,
Burned and cooked and cut up with sharp weapons;
Their suffering, hot or cold, cannot be borne.
Therefore, doing wrong deeds in this life
Manifests to oneself, magnified--
For many eons, fierce sorrow torments one
With no time to escape, nor chance to bear it.
But though happy themselves aid all migrators,
Greed, hate, delusion gone, root of compassion
Firm, and striving with three doors pure do virtue,
Strive in this essence of the most profound.
