【The Precepts of Refuge】 – Take hold of the opportunity to serve
【If we become even more ignorant, what will we be able to do?" 】
If we are more ignorant, any more inferior, what else can we do? Presently, we already feel a lot of hardship, right? We already feel that it is difficult to advance. Buddha is obviously here, sitting inside the shrine room, but we can only see wooden statues and only see paper. That is [the result] of our ignorance! This is obviously the most venerable field, the greatest merit field. Yet, though we have this field, we are not even capable of cultivating anything in this field. At least for now, we feel that we can still see and still have the opportunity to serve! Therefore, while we can, we should take advantage of this opportunity to strive diligently, to strive diligently! Hence this phrase —— if we become even more ignorant, by then, you would not be able to do anything!
