Sunny Mind

Yutang Lin

Weather of mind occasionally reveals some indicators
At all very subtle variations of postures and responses.
Severe storms and heavy clouds kept overcast for long,
A sudden smile, fleeting as lightening, sets mind sunny.


With much suffering in the world, rare are sunny minds. Only through practicing universal altruism could selfish tendencies be truly eradicated. As all delusive ideas have been swept away Dharmadhatu turns sunny and clear. May all suffering sentient beings soon move toward solid Dharma practices so that all would be blessed by Buddhist teachings together and enjoy sunny minds together.
