宁可     林钰堂  

 

 

做为佛弟子,

与其说长论短,编织念网,宁可一心念佛,长养菩提。

与其系心世事,究竟无解,宁可为众修法,开展心境。

与其着相从事,难舍执取,宁可安于随缘,无求无碍。

Rather

 

Yutang Lin

 

As a Buddhist,

Instead of criticizing and evaluating to weave nets of thoughts,
Rather one would single-mindedly repeat ′Amitabha′ to cultivate Bodhicitta.

Instead of worrying about worldly matters which have no ultimate solutions,
Rather one would practice Dharma for all beings to expand scopes of mind.

Instead of engaging in matters of formality due to inability to renounce grasping,
Rather one would remain at ease as situations arise, without seeking nor grasping.
