Universal Peace

Yutang Lin

Let go of picking at and finding faults with others;
Instead, learn self-control to avoid future mistakes.
Correcting others will never find a moment of rest;
Open up to overlook trivial matters to enjoy peace.


May all beings attain universal peace! Refrain from finding others' faults; just let go of one's own insistence. To practice in accordance with this advice will bring one the fruits of peace and joy soon.
