Yutang Lin

Returning to simplicity and purity is a long-term unmaking.
Thoroughly transcending the worldly could not be hurried.
Occasional inspirations as encouragements to be thankful,
Solid practice continued will eventually yield enlightenment.


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.
