【中英诗词赏析】

                                          一沙一世界,一花一天堂。一叶一如来,一念一极乐。

                                          To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower,

                                          Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour.


                                           

                                          一沙一世界,一花一天堂。一叶一如来,一念一极乐。这是英国诗人布莱克的《天真的预言》(Auguries of Innocence)的开头四行。一粒沙里藏着一个世界,一滴水里拥有一片海洋。

                                          也有译为:一沙一世界, 一花一天堂。 掌心握无限, 刹那是永恒。

                                          佛曰:一花一世界,一木一浮生,一草一天堂,一叶一如来,一砂一极乐,一方一净土,一笑一尘缘,一念一清静。

                                           

                                          Auguries of Innocence

                                          To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower,

                                          Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour.

                                          …………

                                          We are led to believe a lie When we see not thro' the eye,

                                          Which was born in a night to perish in a night, When the soul slept in beams of light.

                                          God appears, and God is light, To those poor souls who dwell in night;

                                          But does a human form display To those who dwell in realms of day.
