Yutang Lin

Even though accumulated number of chanting practices is large,
Still holding grudges in daily life would render efforts ineffectual.
Motivation for Dharma practices should be as limitless as the sky,
With fixation to intentions how could Bodhi ever be attained?


Practitioners, who are diligent in Dharma practices and yet still hold grudges in daily-life relationships, are self-defeating. Motivation for Dharma practices should be the aspiration to help all beings attain enlightenment; how could it be that a few people in front of one's eyes and some matters that are as trivial as sesame seeds cannot be overlooked? This kind of passes may practitioners realize and overcome by themselves; others would not have the leisure to waste on serving as your opponents.
