千年业 (Thousand Year Accomplishment)

千年业
禅定静思,不疑不惑。
观定致极,不忧不惧。
无我心境,不增不减。
千年伟业,一念可成。

Translation:

Thousand Year Accomplishment **
Calming the mind and quieting thoughts: no doubt, no confusion.
Perfecting mindfulness and concentration: no worry, no fear.
In the mind of no-self: no increase, no decrease (no gain, no loss).
Glorious accomplishment ** of a thousand years, can be completed in one thought.

(** The pun in original Chinese: the word for accomplishment 业 is also the word for karma.)
