Word-face Transformations

Yutang Lin

Transformations with word-face are hardly recognizable,
Guiding well and diligently with compassion profound.
Spreading far, lasting long, and helping along their way,
When ready ones encountered, just like meeting face to face.


Spreading the Dharma through writings requires patience to details born of profound and ardent compassion. Consequently, one works diligently without feeling tiresome, and even enjoys it. Writings that carry teachings on the path increase the opportunity, the sphere and duration of time of Dharma transmissions. When they are studied by ready recipients, it is no different from giving guidance face to face by a transformation of the author.
