Pure Offering

Yutang Lin

Pure dedication and offerings without expectations
In the long run inspire others and cleanse the mind.
Torrents of muddy stream may be safely traversed,
Thanks to activities that are free from worldly dust.


It is only proper to maintain pure dedication and offering in engaging in Dharma activities. This should apply to distribution and mailing of Buddhist books and images free of charges. In the long run this kind of services would gradually inspire and convert people who have the opportunity to know about it, and help the practitioners to attain higher levels of purity of mind. Amid the ups and downs of worldly situations and encountering this kind of adherence to ideal would become a pillar to support the clarity and tranquility of mind.
