修心 : 善巧学习的方法

真正重要的你们注意:只要你真正肯学,这个是第一个;还有呢?学得得法与否,是第二个。你自己在那儿学,照你自己办法,你学会了,害了!为什么?照你自己办法学会了,你这恶习惯养成功了,叫你改真难改。这我们真正要学的这第一件事情的话:不但要学,还要得到善巧的方法,这是千真万确的事实。

【Cultivation of our mind】– Skillful method of learning

So, please take note of the real important point; as long as you are truly willing to learn, this is the first point. And, did you follow the right method? This is the second one. If you learn by yourself, following your own method, and you complete learning, this will be disastrous! Why? Having learnt through your own method, your bad habits have developed, thus asking you to change will be really difficult for you to change. The first thing that we really want to learn here is this: not only do we want to learn, but we also need to obtain the skillful method. This is absolutely a true fact.
