Too Minute

Yutang Lin

Dharmadhatu opens and expands without limits;
Whatever grasped as tangible are all too minute.
Self-closure, once realized, should be discarded.
Time and space melted away, sorrows departed.


Constantly visualize the limitless openness of Dharmadhatu would help one recognize the minuteness of all one's mental grasping. Such haggling is indeed senseless and tasteless. Thus one would renounce grasping and become free from worrying. If one could thoroughly stay away from all views and conceptual activities, then time and space would melt into a state that could not be expressed by words.
