Remaining in Peace and Harmony

Yutang Lin

Stop worrying when nothing is bothering,
Let events past be like smoke and dust blown,
Course of life evolves as conditions interacting,
Remain in peace and harmony on the Dharma sail.


In the Diamond Sutra it is taught that mind of the past, mind of the present and mind of the future are all unattainable. What to do when mind is forever unattainable? My reply is in the poem above.
