Which matter should have the priority differs with people.
Only through stepping on the ground the path emerges.
Even Buddhist teachings learned still remained entangled,
Simply because worldly considerations always come first.


Give Dharma the first priority, then it would be possible to be practiced. Ordinarily people are used to giving worldly matters the priority. Consequently people are always procrastinating on the path to enlightenment.
