【Karma】- Examine our philosophical view
The next part is very important! That is to say that their actions, i.e their actual practice had not been perfect. Though not perfect, they had "unlapsed conviction in the teaching." In other words, they still had the correct philosophical view. This power remained. They still wholeheartedly wish to learn from the Buddha, still wholeheartedly wish to learn from the Buddha. This point is very important. If we can examine ourselves on this, then it would be correct. Although you appear to do things correctly, if your mind does not concord, then you can fool others but you can't fool yourself. Practice is a matter that solely has to do with oneself. This is very important. You should examine yourself. Oh, when you hear the teachings, there can be two types of attitudes. One type is that after you listen, you feel so joyful and ashamed [and also feel that] "I need to strive. Though I can't accomplish this now, I must strive and alert myself at all times." This is what we should do. As long as you have this type of attitude, you need not be afraid! What we truly should learn right now is primarily this. Another type is this, after you listen, you are afflicted and miserable. Ah, you’re only staying here because you can't help it. If that’s the condition you are in, then it would be very horrific, it would be very horrific!
