Endless Transformation

Yutang Lin

All phenomena flow and evolve without a pause.
Endless transformations, all of one Dharmadhatu.
Grasping to any point brings inevitable suffering.
Be content with high and low to live in harmony.


All phenomena are constantly transforming. In this great ocean of transformation there is no way to grasp or control anything; hence grasping means inevitable suffering. If one could comprehend that all phenomena remain transformation of the same Dharmadhatu, then high and low, gain and loss are just transient roles played in turn by individuals and put together by all involved. There is indeed no permanent and ultimate gain or loss. With such understanding it would become easier for one to accept the ups and downs in life, and live with a constant inner peace.
