Yutang Lin

All phenomena mixed in flow without any intermission.
Conceptual settings are no match for the real situation.
See through such delusions and don't remain beguiled.
Grasp not even a thread to immerge into the one flow..


Real situations are beyond words; all things are mixed in one flow. Any idea grasped is illusive; carried away by all sorts of grasping one suffers in a crazy state. Cultivate the continuation of Buddha's name to clear dusts of mind. Attain freedom from ideas and transcend the sway of appearances, then re-immerge into the flow of all things in their originally pure state.
