善用余生 林钰堂

余生长短难预期,与死竞走图建树;
善用时间心系法,行唯供众无他求。

死期难以预知,因此欲从事之法务需要积极进行,犹如与死竞走,希望能抢先一步达成。善用时间无过于专志不懈。

Making Good Use Yutang Lin

Difficult to foresee how much longer this life will last;
Racing with death to achieve tiny contribution in time.
Making good uses of time by setting mind on Dharma;
Activities are only as offerings to all, no other seeking.

Comment:

Difficult to know in advance when death will come. Therefore, one needs to actively engage in Dharma activities of one's own choice. It is like racing with death so as to accomplish the contribution in time. No better way to make good uses of time than to concentrate on one's dedication and sustain it.
