Suffering not a Hindrance

Yutang Lin

Sufferings inevitable
Becoming a hindrance or not, depends on the person

Grasped, and then it became a hindrance
Use it as trial and training, transcend it to attain awakening
Then it became helpful opportunity for sublimation

Practitioners on the enlightenment path, fear not sufferings
Amid sufferings, no stopping, nor depressing, but only diligence
Only then will the holy fruit of "adornment through suffering" be accomplishe
