Yutang Lin

Thorough understanding arrived through experiences;
Where eyes see and where feet reach are often distant.
Merging into oneness cannot be conveyed in speeches;
Concord of understanding and action reaches maturity.


Thorough understanding could be gained only gradually through experiences. Comprehension of theory and levels of actual achievement are often far apart. Realization of awakening could not be communicated through words; it takes long-term practice in one's own coordination of understanding and action until perfect maturity and harmony to achieve sudden unification.
