Yutang Lin

One binding rope is tied on both ends;
What seems controlling is self-limited.
In mutual strangling, precautions vain.
At ease in pure mind and bother none.


In one instance of binding both ends are tied. Karmic foes met, attacks and precautions could hardly cease. Squeezing each other's throat, why need to suffer so much? Precautions are limited and futile; ingenious ways to escape are ever more. Put aside deluded plans early, just cultivate a pure mind. Karmic debts and knots would gradually dissipate, resulting in less troubles and more peace and harmony among people.
