Systematic Antidote

Yutang Lin

The ecology of self-centeredness is a massive mess,
Fixing bits and pieces, here and there, leads nowhere.
Theories and practices of Dharma form one system complete
To overhaul lives thoroughly and yield purity afresh.


The life style of self-centered ways is a whole system in itself. Buddhist teachings, including philosophies and practices, constitute a systematic antidote to self-centered ways of life. Only comprehensive and systematic adoption of the Buddhist way could hope to yield success in the end.
