Clarity in Quietude

Yutang Lin

Silence in and out with clarity expansive,
A loose tongue gets obstacles and chaos,
Moving around to render barrier illusive,
Vain to comment, just like Dharmadhatu.


Mouthful of personal views, indicating hindrances and delusions profuse. Naturally tranquil, resulting from clarity with ease and peace. Turning around oppositions, hindrances become illusive. Vain to comment, what harm could that do to Dharmadhatu?
