救渡因缘 林钰堂

见识 发心 与投入的程度
法门 师长的抉择与机缘
恆毅的久暂
周遭的变迁与牵缠

如斯错综复杂交织出
各个修行者的履程

可以说
没有一定如何的结果
修途的演化 进展 甚至退转
如同法界万象
皆是因缘多端的
   可能与或然的显现

行者唯一能掌控 能依赖的
  是真挚的大菩提心
   为一切众生求证彻底解脱
循之而行
方能安稳进步
增添证悟之可能与或然率

Causal Conditions for Salvation Yutang Lin

Scope of views, aspiration, and depth of dedication
Choices and opportunities for paths and teachers
Sustained or short-lived of one's perseverance
Circumstantial evolvements and entanglements

As complicated and intertwined as all these took part
Each Dharma practitioner's foot-prints made out a path

One might say that
There is no consequence that is certainly to be so
Evolution, progress and even regress of one's practice path
Same as all phenomena in the Dharmadhatu
Are causally a multi-condition mixture
That appeared as results of possibility and probability

The only thing that a practitioner can grasp onto and depend on
Is a sincere and boundless Bodhi mind
    That seeks, for all beings, ultimate emancipation through enlightenment

Walk in the light of such Bodhicitta
Only then can one make steady progresses on the right path
And increase the possibility and probability of attaining full enlightenment
