Practise and study hard, and you will enter a place of wonder and fascination;
Where there are innumerable gold bracelets and jade treasures stored within.
When we are full of vital energy the spirit will never be exhausted;
With a feeling of elation, let us drift along at will without a fixed lodging point.
Activities such as walking, standing, sitting or lying are valuable for practice;
This ancient and remarkable skill appears easy to approach.
The body is loosened so that the strength feels like it has been derived from soft mud;
The frame appears to have been suspended by a thread from the top of the head.
Examine the condition of each body cell silently with discerning eyes;
False versus real, round versus square, the two aspects aid one another.
Evil intentions do not arise from the expansive sky or the boundless sea;
Let the heavenly bodies revolve around each other in the appropriate way.
To set an object of pursuit and follow it perseveringly is the only requirement;
A grand achievement will surely be accomplished after many years of study.
Suppose we fail to adopt this approach to study yet practise day and night;
We will never succeed in the Chinese martial arts and only sigh in lamentation.
