【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.
