The Smile of Emptiness and Nothingness
Fifteen thousand years ago
You were a king.
And thirty thousand years ago
You were a slave
Your past life was a long scroll of times
And the next life？ How short ten thousand years are!
Yesterday is emptiness and nothingness,
Tomorrow is emptiness and emptiness
Where are you at this time
Emptiness and nothingness, Emptiness and nothingness
Buddha halo, the smile of emptiness and nothingness
