Awakening through SARS

Yutang Lin

Raiding from SARS startled worldly dreams;
Blocking its diffusing is hard to be complete.
Beyond human endeavors, karma takes over.
Beware of impermanence, work inner peace.


Raiding from SARS is powerful. With its spreading unpredictable, people are fearful. Some recovered and yet some succumbed; it is a matter beyond human control. Where human endeavors reach their limits outcomes of matters are decided by karmas. Beware of impermanence early, and not to linger in worldly routines. The fundamental matter for our lives is to cultivate inner peace.
