Ours is the world of Samsara*-
there will be birth, old age, death and yes, disease.
Even if cures are found for old diseases,
new diseases and mutant viruses will evolve into existence-
unless we turn Samsara into Pureland** with collective mental purification-
for all diseases begin from the mind diseased by the three posions.***
Even sudden outbreaks are of karmic**** intent, never random.
The immediate cure might be medicine.
But the real vaccine in the long run is always the Dharma*****-
for only the Dharma ends Samsara.
This is SARSmsara.
SARS is here, a Severe and Real Situation.
SARS is Samsara.
Samsara is a Severe and Real Situation-
as long as we are unenlightened.
Take your immunity shot now-
Practise the Dharma.
