【Karma】 – Bring along virtuous karma with you
【Just as the shadows of birds who dwell
In the sky move along with them,
Beings are followed by
What right and what wrong they have done.
Just as when those with few provisions
Set out on the road and travel in suffering,
Living beings who have not cultivated good karma
Travel to the miserable realms.
Just as when those who have prepared many provisions
Set out on the road and travel in happiness,
Living beings who have cultivated good karma
Travel to the happy realms. 】
Just as when the birds fly, wherever they fly, their shadows will follow. So this example tells us that for us ordinary beings, no matter what your actions are, virtues will beget virtuous effects and sins will beget sufferings. To have sins, it’s much like when we set out on the road without food. If you set out on the road without any provisions, when you are on the road, you will be hungry and have no money,at that time, it would be terrible. (Which means to say) You will travel to miserable realms as you do not have virtuous karma. Conversely, if you are well prepared, then when you set out on the road, great! You will be able to travel to the happy realms.
