Practice Offering

Yutang Lin

Bits and pieces all offered for all sentient beings,
Mind gradually turns while karmic debts waning.
Grasping is milled away, all hindrances dissipate.
Actions rooted in Dharmadhatu are of Bodhicitta.


Worldly views block original purity;
Partiality rooted in grasping to a self.
Practice offering to attain boundless;
Motivation born of wise compassion.

Pure motivation that harmonizes wisdom and compassion is very subtle and difficult to attain.
