Yutang Lin

Absence of welcoming and resisting is called "As It Comes."
To attain "As It Comes" practice accommodating to reality.
In accordance with Dharma follow the example of Buddha;
Accepting things as they are will gradually imbue oneness.


The Chinese translation for "Tathagata" is literally equivalent to "As It Comes."

In oneness without duality welcoming and resisting naturally vanished. In accordance with Dharma teachings, constantly follow the examples set by Buddha. Whatever has passed no longer to stir up; phenomena are by nature illusive. Whatever has happened just accommodate to it; thus one will gradually attain "As It Comes."
