Pay Homage to the Mt. Heng Temple: Stay Overnight Near the Temple Gate Tower

谒 衡 岳 庙 遂 宿 岳 寺 题 门 楼
五 月 祭 秩 皆 三 公
四 方 环 镇 嵩 当 中。
火 维 地 荒 足 妖 怪
天 假 神 柄 专 其 雄。
喷 云 泄 雾 藏 半 腹
虽 有 绝 顶 谁 能 穷?
我 来 正 逢 秋 雨 节
阴 气 晦 昧 无 清 风。
潜 心 默 祷 若 有 应
岂 非 正 直 能 感 通。
须 臾 静 扫 众 峰 出
仰 见 突 兀 撑 青 空。
紫 盖 连 延 接 天 柱
石 廪 腾 掷 堆 祝 融。
森 然 魄 动 下 马 拜
松 柏 一 径 趋 灵 宫。
粉 墙 丹 柱 动 先 彩
鬼 物 图 画 填 青 红 。
升 阶 伛 偻 荐 脯 酒
欲 以 菲 薄 明 其 衷。
庙 令 老 人 识 神 意
睢 盱 侦 何 能 鞠 躬。
手 持 杯 珓 导 我 掷
云 此 最 吉 余 难 同。
窜 逐 蛮 荒 幸 不 死
衣 食 才 足 甘 长 终。
侯 王 将 相 望 久 绝
神 纵 欲 福 难 为 功。
夜 投 佛 寺 上 高 阁
星 月 掩 映 云 膧 胧。
猿 鸣 钟 动 不 知 曙
杲 杲 寒 日 生 于 东。

Pay Homage to Mt. Heng Temple: Stay Overnight Near the Temple Gate Tower

Five sacred mountains filled with high ranking officials
Mt. Song surrounded on all four sides by calm mountains.
A place of uncultivated lands, for the evil and eccentric
Area of powerful spirits for the whole country.

Gushing out and release of clouds, fog from deep mountain bowels
Although the peaks are high, who can reach them?
I arrive in time for the season of autumn rains
Without clear winds, dark and gloomy atmosphere.

Submerged with silent prayers like having the answers
If one is not punctual or direct, spirits will not visit.
Suddenly the tranquility swept clean all of the peaks
Look to see the towering summits unfurl the blue sky.

Like the sky’s posts, connected mountains hold up a canopy
Shilin, Tengzhi and Zhurong formations piled and stacked.
Rest my horse, my soul moved by the awesome
Pine trees and cypresses along a footpath seeks a spiritual palace.

Moving ancestral colors of white walls and red columns
Filled with green and red paintings of spirit entities.
Offerings of meat and wine, often kowtow going up the stairs
My actions of simplicity and feeling noticed by the monks.

Highest temple elder knows the deity’s meanings
They return my eye contact of giving thanks.
Guided how to hold the divination cup properly
Told me that unlike others, my cast proved very lucky.

Having been exiled to culturally backward places, rejoice at not dying yet
For a long time my talents sufficient enough for food and clothes.
Not hoping for a noble position, long into the future looks bright
Reject society’s success, the deities set free my good fortune.

Evening climb up to a tall Buddhist pavilion
Stars and moon set off each other from clouds and mists.
Not aware of daybreak, apes howled and bells rang
Very bright and cold sun emerges from the east.
