第五支劝请转法轮

因为这个法界是无量无边的,所以现在现证佛果的这个佛陀,也是无量无边的。这我们平常在任何情况之下,还是可以,就是哪怕这个法师,你劝请他,这也是请转法轮啊! 不过呢分证的,分劝,若权若分,一切时处都可以这样。乃至于啊,劝请可以劝请自己:我在这儿马马虎虎、懒懒惰惰的话,这个是损法;欸,现在我如法去做,这不是转法轮吗?
你只要正式地去做——对! 法轮的特质,什么意思?第一个,摧烦恼。就是你能够把这个法,在你的身心上面摧破烦恼,这个就叫做「转」。然后呢?把这个东西再运转到在众生,把这个法带到别人的身心上面,这个也是转。如果你能够这样因地当中去做的话,最后的结果,就是你成佛啊!

Preparation (5) – The fifth branch is imploring to turn the wheel of the teaching

Since the sphere of reality is immeasurable and boundless, thus the Buddha who has awakened into enlightenment is immeasurable and boundless as well. In our normal everyday life, we can still practice this. Even for a Dharma Master, when you implore him to teach, this is also imploring to turn the wheel of the teaching! However, this would be considered as awakened into enlightenment in parts, and so it is an imploring in parts. Whether someone has had a complete awakening into the enlightenment, or in parts, you can implore on all occasions. This can be done to the extent of imploring yourself – if I am being careless and indolent here, this would deteriorate the teaching; eh, but if I act according to the teachings, would this not be turning the wheel of the teaching?

As long as you seriously practice it – then it would be right! This is the unique characteristic of the wheel of teaching. What does that mean? Number one, it destroys afflictions. That is you can take this teaching and use it to destroy the afflictions of your body and mind, this is called "turning." And then, when you use it on others, when you bring the teachings to others, that is called "turning" too. If you can do this in the causal period, the end result is you become the Buddha!
