小执大碍 林钰堂

有的人对有些事
一定不放
一定不改
一定不原谅
这是每个人自己的选择
      自心的决定
别人也无可奈何

学佛的目标是彻底解脱
证入完全无有罣碍的法身
学佛的人
若还有甚么是
一定不放
一定不改
一定不原谅
不管事多小
这种执着便永远成了证入法身的阻障

您若是真心求解脱
学佛的修行者
岂可因小失大
为了一时一地芝麻大的心结
永远自绝于无限开阔的法界之外呢

Tiny Grasping, Formidable Hindrance Yutang Lin

To some matters, some people
Definitely would not let go
Definitely would not change
Definitely would not forgive
This is each one's own choice
     A decision of one's mind
Others could do nothing about it

The goal of Dharma practices is the ultimate emancipation
Realization of Dharmakaya that is free from any attachments
For a Dharma practitioner
If there is still something that is
Definitely could not be let go
Definitely could not be changed
Definitely could not be forgiven
No matter how tiny such matter is
Such grasping will forever become a hindrance to realization of Dharmakaya

If you are sincere in seeking emancipation
As a Dharma practitioner
How could you be so penny wise and yet all pound foolish
As to grasp in mind a knot that is as tiny as a sesame
     At a trivial juncture of eternal time and boundless space
So as to forever expel yourself outside the boundlessly open Dharmakaya
