Path of Mind

Yutang Lin

Practicing Dharma being a path of mind, passes are myriad.
Devils and hindrances are all products of one's recognition.
To complete the full course one needs to plunge in directly.
Single-minded on Bodhi will clarify all influences devious! .


Practicing Dharma is basically a journey on the path of mind; how all sorts of hindrances arise and are to be resolved depend on how the practitioner views them and handles them in mind. As long as there is grasping and attachment to appearance in one's mind problems will arise as results of fabrication and entanglements. To arrive at the fruits of Buddhahood one needs to plunge in completely with a straightforward mind; single-minded on Bodhicitta without any other considerations will extinguish the heat of sorrows and enable the practitioner to safely cross over myriad difficult passes.
