Leisure Rare

Yutang Lin

Worldly matters complicated to form a firm grip often.
Coming one after another, not ready to let loose easily.
Rare are moments of no hassle; one feels a bit relaxed.
All of a sudden complaints left; that was more tranquil.


Practice Dharma in order to return to original purity. Accumulated worldly sorrows could hardly be cleared up at one time. Inspirational experiences, serving as encouragements from Buddha, would occasionally arise over long periods. Plain and solid practices, when sustained constantly, would yield enlightened comprehension.
