【业果 KARMA】善友?恶友?Virtuous or evil friends

业果 : 善友?恶友?

因为有的时候的确,随便跟你说,劝,劝了十趟、八趟他不行,大声地呵斥一下,喔唷!他记得很牢了。凡是这种事情,都是师长不得已用的一个方法。我们同学当中,说真正的大家的善友不是说,哎呀!你今天被骂了,他跑得来安慰、安慰你。其实他为什么安慰你啊?因为他自己跟你犯了同样毛病,两个人同病相怜,你还觉得很好咧,结果大家两人一起下地狱,最严重的现在莫过于此。大家希望偷懒,然后你也嘀咕说,这个地方要求这么严,他也要求你,你们两个还觉得很好呢,完了!这个时候,我们真正的同修之间就应该这样,互相谏劝:「啊!我们现在无始的习气,现在这个好环境,要策励我们,我们总要咬紧牙关努力啊!」应该这样,这是我们应该真正了解的。

Karma – Virtuous or evil friends

Because sometimes they may tell you, try to persuade you eight to ten times, and it still doesn’t work. So, they get loud and reproach you a bit. Oh! Then you would remember this thing really well. For such things, that’s because the teacher has been forced to use this method. Among our fellow students here, a real good friend is not someone who would say, “Ah! You got scolded today.” Then he comes to comfort you, console you. But actually, why does he console you? That’s because he has the same issue as you. So the two of you will pity each other for the same type of affliction and you think that’s great. As a result, both of you will enter hell. There is nothing more serious than this. If everyone wishes to be lazy, then you might whisper and say that this place is too strict and they demand too much from you. Then the two of you will feel good about it. Then it’s over! At this time, this is what we truly fellow practitioners should do for each other — we should advise and earnestly urge each other as such, “Ah! These are our habits since beginningless time. Now that we’re in a good environment, this is done to motivate us. We should bite the bullet and strive!” This is what we should do [for each other]. This is what we should truly understand.
