Unraveling Layers of Binding

Yutang Lin

Situation and karma vary with each individual;
Unraveling layers of binding relies on mastery.
Principles and training may follow the Dharma;
Understanding and utilization are up to oneself.


Each one lives within individual situation and karmic conditions. When one aspires toward liberation from suffering one need to contrive a way out of the layers of binding that one is in. Buddhist theories and practices are principles and training on pursuit of ultimate liberation. Actual application of such teachings is up to individual comprehension and performance. Therefore, no matter how the relationships evolved previously there is no need to haggle over it. Instead the emphasis should be on learning how to escape from the current situation of being trapped.
