Practice without Aiming

Yutang Lin

In original purity lies Buddhahood, no need to seek for anything.
To escape from transmigration, one depends on diligent practice.
Dharma practices and daily life intertwined into one continuum,
Right at the moment of such practices all aspirations are absent.


Things being originally pure, free from needs and wants. To attain emancipation, practice diligently toward attainment of enlightenment. Through long-term practices without indolence, Dharma fused into daily life. Then, at the juncture of activities, there is no aspiration or expectation.
