Open Book

Yutang Lin

"Opening books is beneficial" depends on cognition;
Who would know that Dharmadhatu is an open book?
Simply need to clear the mind thoroughly till no dust,
Unexpected relevant matters would reveal themselves.


Reading is certainly beneficial; nevertheless, much is easily forgotten. Knowing how without carrying out would add more worries. Dharmadhatu is originally open to all; only prejudices curtain the view. Thoroughly clean the mind, causes and conditions would reveal themselves naturally.
