Yutang Lin

Another farce staged in the stream of transmigration;
Even if awakened near the end that could be too late.
In limitless-oneness compassion pray for all equally;
Dharma connection for beings varies to such extent!


For those who could not reflect and realize that their doings are merely adding another staging of a farce in the endless cycle of transmigration through life and death, even if they could suddenly awake to the real situation near the end of their lives, it could be too late for them to make amends or remedies. A Buddhist practitioner based on the compassion born of limitless-oneness would constantly pray for and dedicate merits toward the enlightenment of all sentient beings equally. What a pity that the connection with the Dharma for each sentient being varies to such extreme extents that it is impossible for all to be equally helped at once.
