Wei Boyang’s final words
Forsaking the times, avoiding harms,
I have entrusted myself to mountains and hills.
I have wandered and roamed through the Unbounded,
with demons as my neighbors.
Transmuting my form, transcending the world,
I have entered the depths of the Inaudible.
Once in a hundred generations I descend
to roam in the human world;
spreading my wings,
I bend east, west, and south.
