法流之栓   林钰堂

 

 

万法本自一体圆融
  和柔流通  无可执取

执着一起
犹如于活水塘中  加栓塞死
整体渐趋僵化

修行佛法
若能了悟此理
当着力于觉察自心所执
 而放舍之

舍一执便能体会身心柔软一分
这是行者的体验
提供学佛者参证

去我执便是拔起法流之栓
我执尽消 法流自然畅通
身心自然自在于法界一体圆融中

Plug of Dharma Flow

 

Yutang Lin

All things are originally in natural oneness of harmony
Smooth, gentle and harmonious
          With nothing to hold onto

As soon as grasping arose
It is like stopping a flowing pond with a plug
The totality gradually became stagnant

While practicing Buddha Dharma
If one could comprehend this truth
One should work on being aware of one's own grasping
And then let it go

As one grasping is let go
          One can sense a degree of relaxation in body and mind
This is the experience of a Dharma practitioner
Offered here for other practitioners to share as reference

Renouncing grasping to self amounts to
          Lifting the plug of the flow of all dharmas
When grasping to self is all gone
          Dharma flow will naturally become fluent
Body and mind naturally at ease
          In the harmonious oneness of Dharmadhatu
