Naturally Perfect

Yutang Lin

Could results be forced to last for long?
Perfection should not arrive in a hurry.
All things gradually change and evolve;
Only naturally accomplished would do.


Driven by needs and desires things are often forced through. What is compelled temporarily would soon face the arising of difficulties. It is therefore understood that perfection could not be rushed. Long-term efforts gradually and naturally evolve into shapes; that is the way of perfect accomplishment. Dharma practice and propagation are no exception to this.
