Cycle of Evil Karma

Yutang Lin

Behaviors out of evil intentions would lead to miseries;
Retaliations born of animosity would continue to cycle.
Awake early to such entanglements and cease delusion;
Guard and maintain good intents to secure peaceful life.


Behaviors that arise from one thread of evil intent could lead to all sorts of antagonistic reactions in cycles beyond imagination. If one could see through earlier the terrible consequences of such entanglements and the difficulty of ending such cycles, then one should guard and maintain good intentions, keep pure thoughts, so that one could enjoy living in peace.
