Unification with the Grand Aspiration

Yutang Lin

Sentient beings, past, present and future, are in need of salvation;
Right awakening, clear and open, the ultimate refuge and savior.
Courses and operations in Dharmadhatu are causally determined;
Renounce self-considerations to merge into the Grand Aspiration.


Sentient beings are undergoing much suffering; it is the same in the past, present and future. The Dharmadhatu operates strictly according to causal laws. Ultimate refuge and savior rests in right awakening. In order to save all beings, including oneself, whole-heartedly devoted to Bodhi. This is not an easy step to take and sustain; each one must make his or her own decision.
