Praise in Salutation to Wrathful Protectors

Yutang Lin

Out of compassion for sentient beings, protecting the right Dharma
Eager to safeguard and protect, real feelings revealed

Hating not to exterminate all demons at one stroke
In spite of wrathful appearance that would scare people off

Angry eyes wide open, hairs shooting up
Bloody mouth with sharp fangs, swallowing all devils

If one sees appearances as not the real situation
Only then will one comprehend that angry face was born of caring heart
