Mind Set on Bodhi

Yutang Lin

Mind set on Bodhi, free from grasping to trifles,
Seeing all as equals, let others come and go at will.
Eye fixed at Liberation, where could bothers arise?
What a pity that deluded ones remain self-bound.


To attain liberation one should be mindful of Bodhi. Constantly settingmind on Bodhi one remains liberated as events unfold. As circumstances turn and conditions move, Bodhi remains constant. Gathering or dispersing, leaving or arriving, floating clouds in the blue sky. Only feels pitiful for those grasping out of delusion that they are still trapped in self-bondage.
