【亲近善知识 Relying on The Excellent Teacher】未依过患者 The faults of not relying on the teacher P5

【未依过患者】

【终不应恼乱,诸阿闍黎心……】
有一个同修在后面按了一下那个电扇,他也怕热,吹。那时候我也不晓得什么?倒不一定是看见了,回过头去就这么看了一下,他马上把那个电扇关掉了。那时候我心里非常赞叹,为什么?当天我没有想这个事情,不过我前后曾经想过,我每次看见,一看见广老出来,我心里面总觉得,心里想这个他是我们的精神的真正重要的背后的支持。依我现在的了解的话,一切在这个地方,只要他在这个场合之下,我们总是以他为主。你看他这个病得这么严重的人,跑到那个地方去,弱不禁风,你能吹那个风吗?前几次都这样,不过我觉得大家都非常好,还是尽量避开他,虽然避开他,那个风吹过来还是满大。我想讲了几次没讲,结果那天早晨,一看见,我心里真感动。

【The faults of not relying on the teacher】

【Never disturb in any way the minds of the masters. 】
There was a fellow practitioner who stood in the back and turned on the fan because he felt hot. So it was blowing. At the time, I was not sure of what was happening ? He might have seen me just turn back to take a look. He then immediately turned the fan off. At that time, I applauded him in my mind. Why? I was not thinking of this in particular that day, but I have thought of it before. Every time that I saw Venerable Guǎng Huà come out, I always felt, I always thought he was the real important spiritual support behind all of us. Based on my understanding now, for all matters here, whenever he was present, we would regard him as the utmost priority. He was someone who was severely ill. So when he came out, he was so weak and fragile. So do you think he could tolerate the wind from the fan? The fan was turned on the last few times that we were in here. But I thought everyone was really very good, by doing our best to point the direction of the fan away from him. However, even though we tried to avoid that, the draft was still pretty strong. I wanted to talk about this a few times but stopped short. But that morning, when I saw the action [of that fellow practitioner], I felt so touched in my heart.
