Waiting for Awakening

Yutang Lin

Deeply entrapped within worldly views of persons and affairs
Here and there, infested with biases, impossible to pinpoint them all
One can only continue with enlightening activities
To wait for the disillusion of all such wrong views
And the awakening that arises after the cessation of grasping

Words of advice to wake up had long since been exhausted
Again and again
Unawakened remains the same
Pointless advices should just stop
In silence compassion sustained
And turned to praying to Buddha and Bodhisattva for universal awakening
