A Path toward Liberation

Yutang Lin

Rightly to reflect constantly in the light of seeking liberation;
Misleading are entanglements and pollution of worldly fashion.
Treasure time remaining by opening up one's mind;
At present originally there are no strings to bind.


A Buddhist practitioner should constantly reflect in light of the right view that the goal is to attain liberation. Whenever behavior or thoughts fall into entanglements and pollution of worldly fashion, one has already gone astray. How much time remains in this life is still unknown; how wasteful it is for us not to treasure it. Give up haggling and insistence now to regain the natural tranquility.
