Thanks to Leisure

Yutang Lin

Busy with Dharma services, mind still in leisure;
Without entanglement, neither blame nor grudge.
Many years of solitude, along the Buddhist path;
Peace and clarity reveal itself gradually only a bit.

No matter how busy Dharma services become, there is no need to worry. Act in accordance with reason and let the progress be decided by all surrounding conditions. Free from social activities and worldly considerations would subside gradually by themselves. Peace and clarity of mind would reveal itself, given enough leisure.
