In Transmigration Only Suffering

Yutang Lin

Only a mind free from worries can be at ease;
In transmigration only suffering, why battle?
Cultivate pure deeds and constantly help out;
Not attached to worries but turn into empathy.


Worldly high and low, prosperity and decline are all transient phenomena within the cycle of transmigration from life to life; eventually there is suffering, why need to battle for certain results? Seeing through the ultimate results of worldly situations, one no longer lingers within sorrows and worries, but actively engages in practicing purification of one's intentions, and single-mindedness in altruistic wishes, so as to nourish a harmonic and warm attitude to benefit all that one comes across.
