Passing through Hands

Yutang Lin

Passing through hands are offerings and alms;
Without endeavors they flow by on their own.
Ownership of properties is fleeting like dream.
Spreading Dharma to share the light of Bodhi.


Devoted to Dharma practices and propagation, without knowing how to make a living. Offerings to Buddhas and alms to beings just pass automatically through hands. Ownership of goods and properties are changing from blink to blink. Spreading Dharma to benefit all beings is to pass the torch of Bodhi on for all ages.
