No Waiting Until

Yutang Lin

No waiting until matters arise to pray for others;
Stay in Bodhi without pauses in sleep or dreams;
With good will see through compassionate eyes;
Free from intentional efforts, just purely natural.


Cultivate good wills without waiting till matters arise. Abide in Bodhi without intermission in sleep or dream. Whatever comes into sight is equally prayed for. Not enacting, but a natural response.
