Celebrating Birthday on Huang Shan

Yutang Lin

Elephant Rock with nose erected like a Dorji,
Floating clouds gradually meet as if kissing,
Lion Cliff with tail up, offering a longevity peach,
Green pine welcoming guests to thank them for diligence in climbing.


On May 21 we toured the Yellow Mountain (Huang Shan), and it happened to be the birthday of disciple Qin Cheng. At Yu Ping Lou (Jade Shield High-rise) the four of us shared longevity noodles to wish for extended lifespan so as to have more time for Dharma practices and contribution to propagation of the Dharma.
