Purify the Mind

Yutang Lin

Limited by prejudices one could see only few possibilities.
Viewed with suspicions misunderstandings run ever deeper.
Dharma opportunities missed due to hindrance of views.
Tathagatas compassionately advised us to purify the mind!


Narrow and biased views grasped, one could not comprehend accommodations tenable through seeing many possibilities. Holding suspicion in mind, whatever others do or not do is equally questionable. Even though came across Buddha, still self-hindered by hindrance of views. All Buddhas compassionately advised that one should purify one's own intentions.
