Yutang Lin

Dust so inconspicuous, seems non-existent;
Without regular dusting a layer takes shape.
Variegated worldly pollution are all similar;
Diligently practice Dharma to avoid smears.


Free from smears amid dust, easier said than done! Nets of worldly entanglements block the sky and cover the ground. Not yet noticed or being aware of, already intruded deep down within. To stay away from pollution an ingenious way is a must. Practice Dharma and stay away from worldly matters, only then could original purity be gradually resurrected.
