Beings Waiting for Salvation

Yutang Lin

Extensively gathering names of deceased is ultimately limited
What a pity that compassionate salvation could not be fulfilled
Simply adding: all beings in the universe waiting for salvation
Buddha's salvation power expands fully to each and everyone


A few disciples and Dharma friends regularly sent me lists of names of deceased or ill-fated ones, which were gathered extensively through many kinds of media, to request for my Powa service or prayers. I suggested to them to add at the end of their lists: All beings in the Dharmadhatu waiting for salvation. Names on any given list is bound to be limited in number, and yet with the addition of this one item, then none of the beings in the Dharmadhatu waiting for salvation will be left out.

The cycloramic view and mind embracing the whole Dharmadhatu could sublimate our very limited practices and endeavors so that they would merge into the great ocean of salvation activities born of the boundless compassion and mercy of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and then produce incomprehensible salvation functions. Here I solemnly offered this suggestion to all, with the hope that people who learned about this would follow suit and thus resulting in more beings receiving Buddhas' salvation.
