Blessed through Hindrance

Yutang Lin

Adverse conditions suddenly arose to hinder the Dharma path.
Thus one reflected on oneself and gained clarity and tranquility.
Genuine intention in accord with Bodhicitta has never wavered.
Free conscience gained after fine scrutiny enhanced liberation.


On the practice path it is inevitable that there are ups and downs.
As hindrances arose often there was no way to discuss or argue.
After carefully reflected on one's mind and found conscience free,
Both clarity and peace of mind had become even more profound.
