Ode to Dharmadhatu


Yutang Lin



Without dualistic distinctions
Hence it could embrace all things
Be it real or unreal, non-existential or illusive

Time and space have not been set up yet
All directions and past, present and future
Are totally and concurrently present

In the absence of boundaries and limitations
No center could be determined
None could grasp and nothing could be grasped

Naturally in harmonious union
No way to compare or describe

No need to wait for awakening
No need to be aware
Originally it is thoroughly awake and conscious
