Russia is waging a disgraceful war on Ukraine.     Stand With Ukraine!

左手指月 (Upwards to the Moon) (Zuǒshǒu zhǐ yuè) (English translation)

左手指月 (Upwards to the Moon)

左手握大地
右手握著天
掌紋裂出了
十方的閃電
把時光
匆匆兌換成了年
三千世
如所不見
 
左手拈著花
右手舞著劍
眉間落下了
一萬年的雪
一滴淚
啊啊啊
那是我
啊啊啊
 
左手一彈指
右手彈著弦
舟楫擺渡在
忘川的水間
當煩惱能
開出一朵紅蓮
莫停歇
給我雜念
 
左手指著月
右手取紅線
賜予你和我
如願的情緣
月光中
啊啊啊
你和我
啊啊啊
 
左手化成羽
右手成鱗片
某世在雲上
某世在林間
願隨你
用一粒微塵的模樣
在所有
塵世浮現
 
我左手拿起你
右手放下你
合掌時
你全部被收回心間
一炷香
啊啊啊
你是我
無二無別

Towards the moon (Pointing the moon with my left hand)

Versions: #1#2#3
left hand holds the earth,
right hand holds the sky
palm lines like lightning
run in 10 directions
let time
quickly turn into years
even 3 thousand rebirths
seem to have been unnoticed
 
left hand plucks a flower,
right hand swings a sword
10 thousand years of snow
has fallen before my eyes
a tear drop,
ahhhhh
that is me,
ahhhhh
 
flicking a finger on my left hand(martial art),
right hand strikes a string (of a music instrument)
a boat sails on
the river of forgetting (similar to the Lethe)
when troubles can
bloom into a red lotus
don't stop
to leave me with disturbance
 
left hand points at the moon,
right hand holds a red tread
bestow upon us
our fateful romance
under the moon,
ahhhhh
you and me,
ahhhhhh
 
left hand turns into feathers,
right hand turns into scales
a certain life spends in the clouds;
another life passes in the forest
willing to follow you
like a speck of dust
to roam through
all realms of rebirth (samsara)
 
my left hand holds you up,
right hand lets you go
putting my palms together,
you are completely placed in my heart
in the time of a single incense,
ahhhhhh
we are one,
forever together
 
Thanks!
thanked 3 times
