Let Flow

Yutang Lin

Original purity prevails all over Dharmadhatu;
Opportunities for awakening are present even.
Kind intention under restriction wouldn't work.
In light of Great Perfection wisdom, let it flow.


Awakening awaits the opportune meeting of suitable conditions and a practitioner's turning mature. Helping hands extended out of kind intentions, under insufficient conditions, could hardly meet the right juncture. If the matter were viewed in the light of the universal prevalence and constant continuity of original purity, then it would be harmless to let people flow up and down in the stream of life. This is because those who aspire to attain liberation would eventually come across the opportune opportunity for awakening. Nevertheless, compassionate mercy being so profound and intimate, salvational responses poured forth in the form of thousand hands with thousand eyes of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara.
