To Build Dharma Connections

Yutang Lin

Use whatever comes by handy without choosing;
Intending to build Dharma connections extensive.
Production, manufacture, transportation and sale,
All involved in the processing line are prayed for.


Use and take without choosing varieties or brands; on one hand to be free from attachments, on the other hand to become open-minded. As I use things upon encounter I do not forget to pray for all involved in its presence. From production of materials, manufacture of parts, assembly into a unit, storage and transportation, up to management and sale, any thing that comes our way is associated with a string of beings. May we, through this use, build everlasting Dharma connections so that we will become more congenial and ultimately share Buddha's blessings.
