The Intro

灵根育孕源流出 心性修持大道生

The Divine Root Conceives and the Spring Breaks Forth

As the Heart’s Nature Is Cultivated, the Great Way Arises


Before Chaos was divided, Heaven and Earth were one;

All was a shapeless blur, and no men had appeared.


Once Pan Gu destroyed the Enormous Vagueness

The separation of clear and impure began. 


Living things have always tended toward humanity; 

From their creation all being improve.
