【The Precepts of Refuge】 – ruining our wisdom
Furthermore, Sha-ra-wa said: "We are playing around with the teaching in so many ways. Showing disrespect for the teaching and its teachers ruins our wisdom.
These words that were told to us by the past masters …let us talk about the latter portion first. We should understand that for us who truly practice the teachings, what is most important is knowing where everything we want comes from? It comes from repenting and confessing karmic obscurations, and accumulating the collections [of wisdom and merit]. The reason we are inferior [in our learning] is because we lack merits and we have weighty karmic obscurations. Well, now that we wish to do this, what should we do? Repent, because we have done wrong in the past. Then accumulate merits by beginning from respecting others. This is the most important, most important. If you cannot respect others, what is this? Not only is this not accumulating (merits), but it actually ruins them. The foremost important thing in learning the teachings is wisdom. If you do not respect the teachings and the teachers, it is a cause that ruins your wisdom. If you seed this cause, it will certainly bear the fruit of ignorance. This is why we are foolish and ignorant now. We have already tasted the fruit. If you do not strive now, what hope is there?
