That said [about] mundane matters entangled [in], unable [to] break away from, just when entangled, but able [to] not [be] accordingly as transformed, thus is entanglement then broken free from.
Like [a] mirror reflecting [an] image, [when the] image comes, not rejecting [it, and when the] image goes, not retaining [it].
If not knowing this meaning, even if rid of mundane matters, once without everything, still [regarding] all [with a] scattered [and] deluded mind, [with] entanglement firm, [thus] not able [to be] unaffected, [free and at ease].
Those [who] learn [the] path, must [be in their] original positions [to] then practise, [to the] utmost [fulfilling] their parts.
As such, then [even if] all day [with] mundane matters entangled, [it is with] all day free [and] unfettered [to] things outside.
[Of] that called, ‘[With] wholeheartedness, without abiding [anywhere, the] ten thousand situations [are] together tranquil, [with the] six dusts [of sights, sounds, smells, tastes, touches and thoughts] not loathed, still [being the] same [as] right awakening’, [it is] of this meant.

Namo Amituofo : Translation by Shen Shi’an
With Sincere Wholeheartedness, Like A Child Recollecting The Mother, With Faith And Aspiration Be Mindful Of Buddha
Without Confusion And Laziness, Without Moving Gather The Mind
