Beneficial to Practice Solidly

Yutang Lin

Experiences gained are eventually limited;
Chasing after pleasures would add tension.
Seems lonely to practice solidly in solitude,
Mind purified to merge into Dharmadhatu.


Chasing after outward experiences and objects would gain and benefit to only certain extent. As preferences grow and expand they turn into chains and shackles. Practice in accordance with the Buddhist teachings; remain in solitude for long years. Grasping and hindrances would stealthily reduce, and mind stays clear and open. When aspiration and inspiration correspond in unison universal salvation activities permeate everywhere.
