Help All toward Enlightenment

Yutang Lin

Life and death are separated by only one breath;
Use one's breath to practice according to Bodhi.
"Help all toward enlightenment" abides in mind,
Continues all one's life to escape transmigration.


The boundary of life and death is set by the existence or absence of one breath. At this instant all one could do does not go beyond this one breath and one thought. To practice according to Bodhi, just maintain the thought to "help all toward enlightenment." Thus transcending the problems among one and others, as long as the thought is maintained continuously one would escape falling into transmigration in the six realms of suffering.
