Yutang Lin

Amid strong currents of flooding mixtures of karmas,
Causal conditions could abruptly change in a moment.
Bound by views, unable to accommodate to situations,
Even when running into a Buddha would just pass by!


As sentient beings' karmas intertwine causal conditions and opportunities are instantaneously moving and changing. The slightest grasping and preference would lead to one point at the expense of other points. Confined by personal views and considerations, one could be incomprehensive of the need to make accommodations in order to achieve better results. Even when the opportunity to receive Buddha's blessings arise such people would still continue in their routine and miss it by passing over.
