依师 : 狮子身中虫

所以佛一再说:「狮子身中虫,自食狮子肉。」佛在世的时候,波旬魔王处处地方跟佛捣蛋,佛对他的态度,说一下。波旬魔王跟佛说:「佛陀啊!您老人家的确了不起,我也实在佩服得你五体投地,你在世的时候我是拿你没奈何,等到你走了,涅槃了以后,那个时候我要来破坏你。」佛陀笑笑:「你破坏不了。」波旬说:「你晓得我怎么破坏你呀?」佛陀说:「你倒说说看。」「嘿!我到那时候入你的寺,穿你的衣,做你的子孙,这样做!」然后佛就流眼泪,哭了!哭了!这个千真万确的事实。所以在这一点很值得我们自己警惕啊!所以佛特别说,佛法外人没有办法破坏,谁破坏?就是狮子身中虫!

【Relying on the Teacher】- Bacteria on the Lion

Therefore, Buddha repeatedly said, “The bacteria on the lion feeds on the flesh of the lion.” During Buddha’s time, Mara (波旬魔王) constantly caused trouble for Buddha in all respects. I will describe Buddha’s attitude towards him. Mara told Buddha “O Buddha! You, the elder, indeed are remarkable and I really admire you wholeheartedly. While you are still alive, I can’t do anything to you but once you die and go into nirvana, it will be the time that I want to destroy you.” Buddha smiled and said, “You won’t be able to.” Mara asked, “Do you know how I will destroy you?” Buddha replied, “Let’s hear it.” “Hey! By then, I will enter your monastery, put on your robes and become your disciple – this is what [I] will do!” Then Buddha tears rolled and cried! Cried! This actually happened. Hence, this is something that we should be vigilant and mindful of! Thus, Buddha specifically said that non-Buddhist could not destroy the Teachings. Who is able to? That is the practitioner within the community, like the bacteria on the lion!
