【业果 KARMA】诽谤因 Mistaken denial of causes

业果 : 诽谤因

【诽谤因者,谓云无有妙恶行等。】

什么叫谤因呢?佛法里面讲,一切事情都是什么━空、缘起,并没有天生本性如此的。说这个人本性天生就是好的,本来就是坏的,没有!他以前造了善的业因,所以这一世感得善的、好的果报,反过来说恶果。那么所以一定有这样的因,感得这样的果,由这样的妙因,感得这样的妙果。现在有的人说:「哼!你这样做好事没有用。」那这个就是谤因,就是谤因。

Karma – mistaken denial of causes.

【Mistaken denial of causes is thinking that right or wrong behavior do not exist, and so forth.】

What is denying the cause? In Buddhism, what are all things [i.e. phenomena] ? They are emptiness and dependent arising. There is no inherent nature. Some would say that a person’s nature is inherently good, or inherently bad. There is no such thing! One will need to have created virtuous karmic cause previously before experiencing such virtuous and wonderful effects in this life. On the contrary, he will experience negative effects. Thus, there has to be this type of cause in order to have this type of effect. Through a marvelous cause, a marvelous effect is experienced. Now there are those who would say, “Hum! There is no use for you to do good deeds.” This is to deny the cause, to deny the cause.
