解脱之道 林钰堂

正见常照求解脱,世相牵染皆歧途;
珍惜余暇心开去,当下本来无缠缚。

学佛当常以「目标在追求解脱」之正见反省。行径、思惟陷入世相之牵染,即入歧途矣。此生余暇,不知尚有多少,弥足珍惜。放下目前之计执,回归自然之宁静。

A Path toward Liberation Yutang Lin

Rightly to reflect constantly in the light of seeking liberation;
Misleading are entanglements and pollution of worldly fashion.
Treasure time remaining by opening up one's mind;
At present originally there are no strings to bind.

Comment:

A Buddhist practitioner should constantly reflect in light of the right view that the goal is to attain liberation. Whenever behavior or thoughts fall into entanglements and pollution of worldly fashion, one has already gone astray. How much time remains in this life is still unknown; how wasteful it is for us not to treasure it. Give up haggling and insistence now to regain the natural tranquility.
