Who could help me to translate this chinese sentence: 菩提本无树,银镜亦非台,本来无一物,何处惹尘埃? This sentence is my favorite. It comes from chinese buddhism. A very deep principle of life is hidden inside it...a very deep life philosophy is inside this sentence.Sorry, correct a bit mistake, it should be: 菩提本无树,明镜亦非台,本来无一物,何处惹尘埃。

No bodhi, no bright mirror too, fundamentally no anything in the world, then where does the dust exist in?

Ok, my translation is: No bodhi, no bright mirror too, fundamentally no anything in the world, where does the dust exist in? Could you correct it and let it become better?
