Yutang Lin

Open in mind, one enjoys accommodating to others,
Responded along others' wishes without feeling upset.
Having neither expectation nor demands toward others,
Only kept thinking about the sufferings beings sustain.


Without grasping in mind, one accommodates to all that arrived. Responding according to their preferences, one does not feel any disruption. Sustaining neither expectations nor demands, calculation, comparison and criticisms are all avoided. Mind stays open, and yet one could not forget that all sentient beings are suffering.
