Restoration within Dyes

Yutang Lin

Hindrance arises in original purity through grasping;
Sorrows would be evacuated by selfless insights.
Emptiness is form, free from conceptualization;
Form is not different from emptiness, liberation attained.


Buddhist tantra practices liberation within the five poisons of greed, anger, ignorance, pride and doubt. Some call the approach as "using poison as antidote to poison." Indeed it is to practice "no grasping" and "freedom from self" within sorrows. Practicing within sorrows is free from conceptualization. Five poisons being restored to original purity, only then is true liberation attained.
