Relying on Buddha

Yutang Lin

Changing faces, come and go, with ever-new attitudes;
What the style for tomorrow will be, one never knows.
No need to look hither and thither for prudent response.
Simply rely on Buddha's teaching and blessing to go on.


Situations in the world are constantly changing, like streams and whirlpools. Having seen enough of odd matters, one no longer feels curious about such matters. What are customary would become normal. New styles are hard to anticipate while Dharma routes are ready to be followed. Whole-heartedly relying on Buddha to live the remainder of this life in peace.
