Incorruptible Yutang Lin

Dharma practices
Are unrelated to prosperity or adversity in sight
Nor to abundance or scarcity of others' approval
Its validity rests only on merging into reality

Once merged, then it became incorruptible, transcending time and space
Such incorruptibility is also unrelated to
     Virtuous deeds, meritorious deeds and truthful speeches of humans
But only due to having merged into oneness that is limitless

May solid practitioners having read the above
And thus become able to set aside all sorts of worldly considerations
Also become able to stay away from traps of worldly tangles
     That are abundant beneath misapplied name of Buddha Dharma
Furthermore, during state of naturally free from thoughts and intentions
Comprehend the incorruptible
And merge into limitlessness
