学问偈
Verses [On] Learning [And] Questioning


无学无问,何得学问?
求学须问,乃名学问。

Without learning [and] without questioning, how [can this] attain knowledge? [As] seeking knowledge needs questioning, thus [is it] named [as] ‘learning [and] questioning’ [i.e. knowledge].

为求学问,要学要问。
有学无问,非全学问。

For seeking knowledge, [there] must [be] learning [and] questioning. Having learning without questioning, [this is] not complete knowledge.

无心向学,随心乱问,
无学有问,何成学问?

Without [the] intention [to advance] towards learning, following [that] wished, [with] chaotic questioning, without learning having ‘questioning’, how [can this] accomplish knowledge?

欲得三慧,学生闻慧,
问生思慧,才生修慧。

Desiring [to] attain [the] Three Wisdoms, [with] learning give rise [to] Wisdom [From] Listening, [and with] questioning give rise [to] Wisdom [From] Reflection, then giving rise [to] Wisdom [From] Cultivation.

Please be mindful of your speech, Amituofo!
