A spark of fire can burn down a forest; a small good wish can save the world.

Since heaven and earth have the grand virtue of nurturing all things, how can I not have the great vow of compassion and loving-kindness?

To deliver all sentient beings from sufferings is picking up, without attachment to such deliverance is letting go.

Compassion should transform like the spring shower and breeze, wisdom should enlighten like the omnipresent sunlight[g3] .

Attain great wisdom, make great vows, immeasurable merits and infinite lifespan[g5] .

If we can see the hidden[g6]  Tathagata within our mind, the three realms, like an inferno, will transform into the red lotus pure land.

14. 南山老松早已衰老,北斗壽星尚甚年輕。

When the old pine tree on the south mountain is withering, the North Star is still young.

15. 神龍潛藏深潭大澤,猛虎高臥危崖險窟。

In the deep lake and great waters the supernatural dragon hides, on the steep cliffs and precipitous caves the ferocious tiger crouches.

To have inner-peace, constantly chant the name of Guan Yin Bodhisattva; a peaceful mind leads to a peaceful life.

18. 朝山禮拜來修行,祈福消災願易成;口唱耳聽心恭敬,三步一拜向前行;身心舒暢好感應,業消障除福慧增。

To cultivate through the pilgrimage practice can make your vows, prayers for blessings and wishes to eliminate misfortunes come true: listen to your chanting with a sincere heart, march forward by one genuflecting after walking every three steps; your body and mind will feel exhilarated with good responses (from the Triple Jewels), karma and obstructions vanquished, merits and wisdom increased. 

19. 一钵乞食千家飯,孤僧杖竹萬里遊;隨緣應化莫擁有[g11] ,緣畢放身撒兩手。

One bowl with alms from one thousand families, a lone monk traveling ten-thousand miles with a bamboo cane; flow with the causal conditions and accept all offerings without ownership; when all the causal conditions extinguish, release the body and withdraw both hands.

20. 放下不等放棄,是為脫困,是為提起;要能放下才能提起,提放自如是自在人。

Letting go is not quitting[g12] , it is to break the bondage, to take on new challenges/responsibilities; only after letting go can one pick up, a person who can let go and pick up smoothly (with savoir-faire) is free (at ease).
