General Comments

Yutang Lin

Specific advice could hardly be accepted willingly;
Lack of helpful means, yet abundant in ardentness.
Offering general comments instead for all to share;
Maturity of opportunities depends on time and tide.


Buddhas and Bodhisattvas have boundless helpful means to convert all sorts of sentient beings. For us humans, even though we would like to explain certain matters over to some specific audience, it is often the case that either there is no way to communicate or the expounding could hardly be accepted. Although such is the case a sincere mind would not thereby become frustrated. Instead general comments are offered for all to share so that those interested in Buddhist practices and have the opportunity to come across could make references. Thus meaningless arguing and fighting out of grasping could all be avoided. In time when opportune conditions meet those mature and fortunate enough would comprehend the teachings therein and be benefited.
