Guiding toward Bodhi

Yutang Lin

Blank mind responds like echoes in valley;
Straight reply lest to disappoint an inquiry.
Guiding intentions to join Dharma streams,
On merits and wisdom gained Bodhi grows.


Mind free from preoccupation, not expecting anything; upon inquiry there is immediate response. For intentions to practice offering and giving simply point toward building Dharma connections. Open the horizon and lead to the right direction while taking into consideration the original intentions. All endeavors should just merge into cultivation of Bodhi.
