Choosing to Cultivate Good Will

Yutang Lin

Different people choose paths variegated to thousands of styles.
Choosing to foster good will among beings is up to one's mind.
Worldly phenomena in the end will reveal themselves as empty;
Nevertheless, through virtuous activities warmth may be shared.


How rapid are the changes in worldly affairs! Only the cultivation of one's mind is up to one's own vigilance. Even though keenly aware that all things in the world are like mirages, and yet fortunately there are virtuous karmas that one could engage in their cultivation, and through such activities warmth born of compassion and sincerity may flow among sentient beings.
