Main Subject

Yutang Lin

Have you found the main subject of this life?
Don't waste time on chasing after trimmings.
Use this rare opportunity for spiritual growth;
Delving through one practice to regain purity.


So as not to live this life in vain one should find out a course that suits one's inclinations and abilities, and then devote oneself to it. Thereby one may cultivate one's original purity of mind and make some contribution to society. Don't become absorbed by matters that are just trimmings of life.
