暇满 : 五他圆满 - 教住

这个教法住世不是说:啊,现在经论在那里哦!不是的。什么?他现证的这个状态,「胜义正法」住世这个才是。所以正法的时候才是,像法的时候这个教法就没有了,有点相似;末法的时候更没有了,就指这个而言,不是我们的经论。既然不是我们的经论啊,所以不是我们说,啊!听懂了,然后呢,可以会说了。不是!要能够如法相应、亲自证得。

【A human life of leisure and opportunity】-The five aspects of opportunity that pertains to others; there are those that follow the sublime Teachings

The “teaching remains” does not mean, ah, now the sutras and commentaries remain here No. What is it? It is when a follower can achieve the teachings by knowing the ultimate sublime teachings. It is only when the “ultimate sublime teaching” remains in the world. Therefore it is only here during the time of sublime teachings. When you get to the time of semblance teachings, there is some resemblance [to the teachings], but it is barely there. When you get to the time of degeneration of the teachings, it is not even there anymore. This is what it is pointing to. It is not talking about sutras and commentaries. Since it is not just our sutras and commentaries [remaining], therefore it’s not for us to say, "ah! We understand now." Then we can give teachings. No! You must be able to be concordant to the teachings and to attain the realization yourself.
