Application of Bodhi

Yutang Lin

Taking away worldly considerations of human relations,
Integrate with Dharma to increase wise comprehension.
All things are handled in the light of Bodhi application;
Grand or trivial matters, become one taste, no discrimination.


When matters arise take away considerations of relationship and view it in accordance with the Dharma. Then entanglements could be avoided and the situation would add to the growth of wisdom toward liberation. All matters are handled as Bodhi applications, then grand and trivial matters become equally important. Every moment and situation could be transformed into Dharma practice only when Bodhicitta is in charge of all activities, physical or mental.
