【 Cultivation of our mind】- Why did he scold you?
When others are lazy, you will at the most feel pity for them, "Ah, it's so pitiful for this person, if I have the ability, I will help him." In your mind, you will absolutely not generate even a little bit of afflictions. If he comes to hit you, you also won't generate any afflictions. If he comes to scold you, you will react the same way. Even if he were to kill you, it's all like that. Why? Because you understand it is the effect of karma. Why does he want to come and scold you? Why does he not come to scold me? Eh, the reason is very simple! That is how you had harmed him before, now you have paid back, have paid back. Therefore, it is of course as it ought to be! For all the things in the world, it is this way for things that happened before. It is so for what happens now. And now you won't just be casually doing this kind of things. This is the foundation of Buddhism.
