【业果 KARMA】少分快乐亦是善业所感 Even a little happiness, is also the effect from virtuous karma

业果 : 少分快乐亦是善业所感

【业决定理者,谓诸异生及诸圣者,随有适悦行相乐受,下至生于有情地狱,由起凉风,所发乐受,一切皆是从先造集善业所起。】

不但是我们「异生」凡夫,就是「圣者」,就是圣人,他一切还是由业来决定的。不管他所受的任何一点点的快乐,适悦的,这个快乐都是欢喜的。这个当然,人间、天上等等快乐不谈,哪怕你生到地狱里边去━这个地狱里面难道还有快乐吗?是啊!当你油锅里煎完了以后捞出来,摆在地上凉风一吹,那时候也有一点的快乐的时候欸,这样。然后等活死完了以后,他喊:「等活。」他又活过来了,那个时候有一些快乐的时候。哪怕这么一点点快乐,还是以前你造的这个善业,你看看!

【Karma and its effects】– Even a little happiness, is also the effect from virtuous karma

【1" The certainty of karma: All happiness in the sense of feelings of ease—whether of ordinary or noble beings, including even the slightest pleasures such as the rising of a cool breeze for a being born in a hell — arises from previously accumulated virtuous karma. 】

Not only for us "ordinary beings", even for "noble beings", even saints, everything about them is still determined by karma. No matter what feelings he has of any bit of happiness, ease; these types of happiness are all joyful. Of course, we need not mention all sorts of happiness in the human or the heaven realm, even when you are born in hell — will there still be happiness in hell? Yes! When you are fried in a pot and then scooped out, set on the ground, and a cool breeze blows on you, there is also a little happiness at that moment, like this. Then after you've died in the "Reviving Hell," and someone commands, "Revive!", the beings come to life again; that's when there is a little happiness. Even this little bit of happiness is also due to the virtuous karma you had created previously. Look at that!
