Life-long Learning

Yutang Lin

Real practices involve life-long learning;
Touring centers just to make a short stop.
Aspirations and deeds root in Bodhicitta,
Only then can one escape from suffering.


On the path of Dharma practice people come and go. Some tour centers and would take leave only after a short stop. To be serious with Dharma practice it needs to become a life-long continuous pursuit. Only when guided by and remain in accordance with Bodhicitta could mastery and attainment become realized. Otherwise, all endeavors would end up in creating karmas leading to transmigration. Don't fall back into worldly ways! Carefully examine your own motivations and intentions.
