顺来 林钰堂

已无迎拒号如来,欲证如来修顺来;
顺从如来常随学,随顺既来渐契如。

一体无二,迎拒自泯。顺从法教,常随佛学。已去不扰,元本幻化。既来则安,渐契如来。

Accommodating Yutang Lin

Absence of welcoming and resisting is called "As It Comes."
To attain "As It Comes" practice accommodating to reality.
In accordance with Dharma follow the example of Buddha;
Accepting things as they are will gradually imbue oneness.

Comment:

The Chinese translation for "Tathagata" is literally equivalent to "As It Comes."

In oneness without duality welcoming and resisting naturally vanished. In accordance with Dharma teachings, constantly follow the examples set by Buddha. Whatever has passed no longer to stir up; phenomena are by nature illusive. Whatever has happened just accommodate to it; thus one will gradually attain "As It Comes."
