承担 林钰堂

佛理微妙证量深,逆于俗流信受稀;
冒滥轻贱交相攻,为保赤忱一肩担。

佛理微妙,极难彻悟。证量渊深,少有探及。逆于俗流,难值信受。冒滥轻贱,极易遭逢。为护赤忱,一肩承担。任重道远,佛慈是赖。

Undertaking the Mission

Undertaking the Mission


Undertaking the Mission Yutang Lin

Buddhist theories are subtle and attainment profound;
Contrary to worldly trends, few can follow in practice.
Fakery and contempt attack practitioners at every turn;
To sustain purity for all, I undertake the mission alone.

Comment:

Buddhist theories are subtle and wondrous; it is very difficult to comprehend them thoroughly. Buddhist attainments are so profound that few had reached the depths. Both the theory and the practices are contrary to worldly trends, only few can have deep faith enough in them to adopt the practices seriously. Fakery for worldly gains and contempt out of ignorance or misunderstanding are abundant. In order to preserve sincerity in the world, I volunteered to undertake the mission even all alone. The responsibility is heavy and the path is lengthy; I rely on Buddhas' compassion.
