Chan is Life Itself


Chan is a giant tree

Rich nutrients, water, and sun

Make it grow and blossom beautifully


Chan is a tiny of blade grass

It roots and spreads in any place on earth

Flourishing and blossoming like the tree


Chan is actually all life

Rooting deeply and growing abundantly

Flowering according to time and space

Whether Chan exists or not

Whether it flourishes or decays

Need not be our worry


Chan is life itself

Growing where life exists

Flowering naturally with season
