【The faults of not relying on the teacher】
Fifty Verses on the Guru which is composed by a Bodhisattva, is a treatise.
【The Fifty Verses on the Guru says:
You who despise the master—
You greatly confused person—
Will die by poison, demons, infectious disease, Leprosy, contagious fever, or other illnesses.
You will also go to a hell
After being killed by a king, or a fire,
Or by poisonous snakes, water, dakas, thieves, Demons, or deceptive spirits. 】
So it says here in the beginning, if you despise the master, that is the greatest confusion. It is indeed the greatest confusion. What will you have to go through? It is these. At present, you might have "leprosy, contagious fever, or other illnesses", anyway, all kinds of worldly terrible things could come upon you which you might suffer through all of them, or would strike all of them, or part thereof. After you die, you will fall into the great hell, the great hell.
