Yutang Lin

Step by step, stepping on the line between life and death,
No time to glance aside but to watch over purity.
Remaining pure does not mean static idling;
Moment after moment, pray to Buddha for suffering beings.


Wake up! Life and death are only a thin thread apart. Let go of all concerns, except to watch over the original purity. Purity should be put to significant uses; constantly pray to Buddhas for blessing on behalf of all kinds of suffering beings.
