Opportunity for Enlightenment

Yutang Lin

Opportunity for enlightenment matters to the totality;
It has nothing to do with self or self-related concepts.
Wishing others' to obtain conditions for Buddhahood,
Without considerations of preference or relationships.


Any sentient being's attaining full and right enlightenment is an important matter that affects the rising or sinking, awakening or lost of all beings in the whole Dharmadhatu. This matter has nothing to do with any personal preferences or social relationships. Therefore, when we pray sincerely for all sentient beings to attain full enlightenment soon we should throw away all social and personal considerations, and simply pray equally for all.
