Flowing Smoothly

Yutang Lin

Life is like a river flowing incessantly,
It flows smoothly when mind is quiet.
In the absence of grasping and worries,
Buddha's blessing will naturally arrive.


This indication of calming one's mind to help cure illness through reception of Buddha's blessings was written for a Dharma friend, Miss Cheng, who is suffering in sickness. As to the method for pacifying the mind there is none other more practical than to concentrate on repeating in silence a holy epithet of Buddha.
