Common Karma

Yutang Lin

Common karma too complicated to penetrate;
Ever changing and compelling to besiege all.
Rather than complaining to enhance suffering,
Better be appreciative to aim at joint harmony.


Besieged by common karma, none is without hardship. Complaining and holding grudge add to mental burden and increase tension. Remember others' kindness and be appreciative of fruits at hand, mind would be open and free from entangling in haggling thoughts. All should be appreciative of the opportunity to meet and gather, and work together toward peace and harmony.
