Deficient

buddha-physics1If I do not aspire to universal liberation,

but seek only to benefit myself,

then I am deficient as to the principle of the Great Way.

If the mind is not pacified,

how much more will I not generate the Great Mind of Enlightenment?

This being so, then externally

I will not attain sympathetic resonance with the Buddhas,

and internally, I will not be able to honor my own fundamental nature.

Above, I will not be able to attain the perfect Buddha-way,

and below, I will not be able to benefit the multitude of beings.
