Views Differ

Yutang Lin

Not to force one's views to attain concordance.
Watch out for responding into a self-grasping.
It is only natural that each holds views diverse.
Just avoid entanglement and it will be all right.


Born of diverse causal conditions, views naturally vary. Whatever one's views are, do not force them onto others to achieve agreement. While mind is free from grasping it will be easy to be tolerant. Others might have some attachment, be careful not to pursue it in responding. Incessant responses could easily turn into one's own grasping. All things have different manners, and each is fine in its own way.
