Yin Shun concluded: “If we can observe with wisdom, we will see the impermanent nature of all things. We can then eradicate our worries and perplexity by eliminating our attachments and the bad habit of making distinctions. Once we can do that, our minds will be as composed and wise as that of the Buddha.


(The Praying Mantis that visits our temple regularly. It is said an appearance of a mantis means meditation and contemplation. He comes to us when we need peace, quiet and calm in our lives. In fact, in China, the mantis has long been honored for his mindful movements. He shows constant respect to all the Buddhas with his palms joined. I am always humbled by his stillness and grace when I see him.)
