Practicing Being Humble

Yutang Lin

With self in mind
Humbleness inevitably has a bottom line
As situation encountered and feelings arise
Inadvertently there emerges
Behavior of self-righteousness

Practicing Dharma
One needs to exert efforts on "being selfless"
As matters arise and thoughts emerge
Reflect on being "selflessly humble"
In other words
Not to forget how insignificant one is in the Dharmadhatu
And hence capable of being thoroughly humble and free from insistence
