Yutang Lin

No permanence and no self are views difficult to see thoroughly.
For all beings and for Dharma are intentions difficult to be pure.
Causal application and choices are uses difficult to be wondrous.
Awakening oneself as well as others are fruits difficult to obtain.


Right views are difficult to comprehend thoroughly. Intentions are difficult to remain pure. Applications are difficult to be wondrous. Awakening is difficult to merge into. Why are these so difficult? Worldly views still linger. Preferences and prejudices are unaware of. Considerations and cares are a basket full. Clarity is still on the other side of the mountain.
