All Things Originally Pure

Yutang Lin

All things originally pure once comprehended, just release grasping.
Things simply evolve and flow in great harmony of limitless-oneness.
Distinguishing pure or impure would be an incessant preoccupation,
Those approaching purity to the extreme would cease communication.


Once it is comprehended that all things are originally pure, then discrimination and antagonism would not arise under any circumstances, and all one needs to practice is the letting go of grasping. Simply let things immerse into the flow of all things, and great harmony of limitless-oneness would be realized. Without comprehension of original purity of all things, the distinction of being pure or impure would arise, and those self-confined to such purity would remain in an ever narrower sphere. This is the root diverting point between becoming ever stagnant or alive. Only in the absence of grasping can there be limitless openness and ingenuity.
