Hermann Hesse – Young Novice in a Zen Monastery / Zen Manastır’da Genç Bir Papaz Adayı

(See into comment for original German text. / Türkçe metin için yorum bölümüne bkz.)

Illustration by Tracy Lan

All is lie and all illusion

Truth stays undefinable,

But i have, though, the clear vision

Of the recognizable afar mountain.

The stag and crow, red rose,

The seas’s azure and the world’s colors:                                                                                         Focus, and all this vanishes                                                                                                          Shapeless and with no name to answer.

Turn inward; and in focusing,

Learn to read, to see, to recognize!

Focus-The world is but appearance.

Focus-Appearance becomes Being.

    Junger Novize im Zen-Kloster

    Ist auch alles Trug und Wahn
    Und die Warheit stets unnennbar,
    Dennoch blickt der Berg mich an
    Zackig und genau erkennbar.

    Hirsch und Rabe, rote Rose,
    Meeresblau und bunte Welt:
    Sammle dich-und sie zerfällt
    Ins Gestalt-und Namenlose.

    Sammle dich und kehre ein,
    Lerne schauen, lerne lesen!
    Sammle dich-und Welt wird Schein.
    Sammle dich-und Schein wird Wesen.

    Hermann Hesse

    Herşey yalan ve bir ilüzyon olsa da,
    Ve gerçek hiçbir zaman tanımlanamazsa da,
    Dağ yine bana bakar,
    keskin hatlarıyla, tanınabilir.

    Geyik ve karga, kırmızı gül,
    Deniz mavisi ve rengarenk dünya:
    Odaklan-ve o dağılır
    şekilsizliğe ve isimsizliğe.

    Odaklan ve içine dön,
    görmeyi öğren, okumayı öğren!
    Odaklan-ve dünya görünür hale gelir.
    Odaklan-ve görünüş var olur.

    Hermann Hesse
