【修心 Cultivating the mind】成就我的布施 Accomplishing my generosity

修心: 成就我的布施

妙了!慢慢、慢慢地什么人都是你的恩人,乃至于这个人今天瞪你一眼,骂你一言,你就觉得:「哎呀!阿弥陀佛!他成就我的忍辱,他使我成佛啊! 」不是吗?既然你要想成佛而感激佛,现在这个人来成就你的布施,成就你的忍辱,成就你的精进,你怎么不感激他呢?同样地成就你,使你成就佛呀!这个地方你了解了这一点,这些问题都解决了, 同时那个时候你就如法了。

【Cultivation of our mind】– Accomplishing my generosity

Then once you can think like that, marvelous! Gradually, gradually, you would see everyone as your benefactor. Even if this person happens to give you an angry stare, or he may even reproach you, you would feel, "Ah! Amitabha Buddha! He has come to help me accomplish my training in patience. He is helping me to become a Buddha!" Isn’t it so? Since you appreciate the Buddha because the Buddha helps you to become a Buddha, here is a person who has come to help you accomplish your training in generosity, patience, and joyous perseverance. How could you not appreciate him? He is helping you to accomplish (the perfections), helping you to achieve Buddhahood! If you can understand this here, all these sorts of problem are resolved. At the same time, you now act in accordance with the teachings.
