【业果 KARMA】从干涸渐成大海 From drying up to gradually becoming an ocean

业果 : 从干涸渐成大海

【种等虽卑不着恶,具足施戒等功德,如夏江河能满海,后世安乐定增广。】

尽管你样样东西都差呀,但是你不做坏事,不但不做坏事,而且具足布施、持戒、忍辱说六度万行等,那就像什么?就像夏天的江河,刚刚开始看看啊,好像干干的,没有什么,越来越多、越来越多,到后来的话,哇!乃至于把那个大海都充满了,这样。现在是增上生,后来是决定胜,后来是决定得到安乐,决定得到安乐。

【Karma】 - From drying up to gradually becoming an ocean

【As for those whose family lineage and such are inferior but who are not attached to sin
And who have qualities such as generosity and ethical discipline,
Their happiness in future lifetimes will grow
As surely as the monsoons of summer fill up the ocean. 】

Even though you may be inferior in every aspect, you do not engage in nonvirtues. Not only do you not engage in nonvirtues, you have qualities such as generosity, ethical discipline, patience and etc., in other words, the six perfections. What would that be like? It would be like the river in the summer[filled up]. In the beginning, they seemed dry and not much is there. However, gradually the rivers gathered more and more [water]. In the end, wow! They can even fill up the ocean, just like this. For now, [you will first obtain] high status rebirth, eventually you will reach certain goodness. In the end, you will surely obtain happiness, surely obtain happiness.
