Boundless Awareness

Yutang Lin

View all sensations equally without discrimination;
Neither attached nor lingering, realize blank nature.
Clear awareness originally is completely boundless.
Deluded grasping blindly woven into jail cells deep.


Sensation in its totality is originally without preference and abomination. Individual minds draw their own limits; close or distant are distinctly separated. Viewing all equally in oneness, to return to reality. Any grasping or attachment forms some hindrance. Not being confined by form or sensation, the nature of awareness is blank, i.e., it could not be grasped. Let whatever comes flows by, clear awareness is completely boundless. Without understanding of this basic truth, suffering in delusion is ever compounded. Practicing in its light one could attain liberation readily.
