Natural Rhythm

Yutang Lin

Practice to cease thinking, deluded mind turns clear and quiet.
Deep tranquility resembles death, yet allow no doubts to arise.
As tendons of grasping to self withered and its limbs scattered,
Rhythms of the Dharmadhatu are pulsing lively at every corner.


Demands and expectations wove a cage of self;
With incessant self-disturbing, no peace to stay.
Practice to let go, gradually delusions dissipate.
Prevalence of natural rhythms becomes obvious.
