Just Like Air

Yutang Lin

Some disciple said
Gurus of many other places
Set many rules, and are very strict with the rules
Eh, how come for our Guru
Whatever is fine
And that made us sometimes wonder what to do

Be it a small bottle, a large jar
With rooms or without a house
Air fills them equally fully, equally at ease
But cannot be grasped

With set rules, there are limitations
Realizing Blank Essence, just like air
Whatever is fine, nowhere not at ease

Don't you know what to do is proper
Transform into air
