On the Buddhist Path

Yutang Lin

Paths to Enlightenment are chosen individually;
Nothing to do with relations and entanglements.
Gathered under good terms to help one another;
Separated by differences in views and activities.


When the goal is purely for engaging in practices leading toward enlightenment people gather or disperse not because of personal relations, and there is no entanglement involved. It is simply a matter of following one's view and understanding of the Dharma and choosing an appropriate path and pace. Constantly adhering to Bodhicitta one always prays for all practitioners to soon attain perfect enlightenment.
