【亲近善知识 Relying on The Excellent Teacher】摄彼等义亲近善知识 A summary of the meaning of relying on the teacher P8

【摄彼等义】

感受到了什么?「能动心意」,能动心意的,喔!那转过来。否则的话,我们无始的无明像生牛皮一样,一动不动,那讲了半天有什么用?听了半天有什么用?所以这个时候原因是为什么?大师一番的苦心,我们现在也很认真地在这个地方学,而这样的解释却是「符合经义」的。能动心意不一定符合经义,讲得天花乱坠,讲错掉了,这个又害了! 他还要经义完全符合。而把深奥的经义,经过这样地说明,我们如实地了解。
那么这个大师也说「诸善士语」,那就是袓师的语录,祖师的语录,来这个地方真正庄严,这个才是我们的庄严哪!而这个地方所说的还是什么啊?「粗次第」,这是大纲,「略为建设」。所以在这个地方原则都有了,这个重要的,一点都不欠。

【A summary of the meaning of the previous five parts】

【Consequently, I have taken citations from uncorrupted scriptures and their commentaries, which are easy to understand as well as inspiring, and I have given a general overview that is adorned with the sayings of excellent persons who are engaged in the meaning of the scriptures. Understand this in detail from other sources. 】

What will you feel? It will be "inspiring“, it will be inspiring. So you will need to be able to make a shift [to be inspired]. Or else, our ignorance from beginningless time is like a raw hide, it will not bend. So what use is there to instruct the teaching at length? What use is there in listening to the teaching at length? So what is the purpose for doing this? It is Lama Tsong Kha Pa's painstaking effort. And now we are also conscientious to learn this here. And these explanations
accord with the scriptures. Instructions that are inspiring may not accord with the scriptures. You may elaborate in an exaggerated account of, but if you speak wrongly, it would cause harm. So the explanation must accord completely with the scriptures. It must take the profound meaning of the scriptures and explain in a way to allow us to truly understand it.
The great lama also quoted from "the sayings of excellent persons." These are recorded words from the past masters. This is a true privilege, this is truly our privilege. And what has been actually explained here? It is only a "general overview." This is an outline that has been given to us. All the main principles are here, nothing essential is missing.
