Yutang Lin

Worldly affairs being complicated are hard to fulfill;
Wholehearted helps here and there but in small ways.
Dragonflies glided over water with two or three touches;
Only ripples remain spreading in the tranquil lotus pond.


Passersby of this world, building connections through Bodhicitta;
Walkers on the path of birds, spreading the teaching to continue Compassion.

Note: Sky being the path of birds.
