皈依 : 遮止讥毁

【于他所造诸佛像等,若因善妙,若量广大,不应讥毁及遮止等。】 

那么同样地,对于佛像,在任何情况之下不要批评。还有别人如果造的话,我们一样的,反正不管任何理由。现在我们常常有一种情况,固然我们坏的不可以,好的—往往我们是坏的嘛固然要批评,好的还要批评。为什么?他不是批评这个佛像,人与人之间的嫉妒!人家造了一个好的佛像,「这有什么了不起!」你嫉妒是嫉妒这个人,结果呢对不起,你伤害了,伤害了自己。像这种地方,要特别注意!

【Precepts of  Refuge】 –  To stop the act of destroying

【The quality of images, despise others for using fine materials for images and the like or for making them large, discourage their makers from finishing them, and the like】

Similarly, with regards to the Buddha’s image, you should not criticize it under any circumstances.  If other people are constructing the image, we should act the same way, no matter what reasons you have.  Now we may frequently have this scenario, of course it is the case where we should not be criticizing the badly constructed ones but this holds true even with the good ones.  Often, we do not only criticize the bad ones, we also criticize the good ones.  Why?  Sometimes one is not really criticizing the Buddha’s image but that he is jealous!  When others create a good Buddha statue, he would say, “What is so  great about that!”  You are jealous of this person. As a result, you have caused harm, harm for yourself.  For areas like these, you need to pay attention!
