当我们了解了这个业、果之间的必然性的话,是,我们会内心上面,会产生一种很大的震撼。也可以说对于好的人哪,会绝大的鼓励;对不如法的人哪,会产生绝大的恐怖。那么这个上头告诉我们,不要这样地害怕,不要这样地害怕。因为是,我们一个凡夫要想步步上升,绝不可能一步登天,一定这么次第慢慢、慢慢地来。而修学的过程,一定是先亲近善知识,从他那个地方,第一件事情要得到正知见。然后呢得到了正知见以后,努力修改、修行,修行把以前的错误的恶习慢慢、慢慢地净除,这个是它必须要的条件,所以虽然你听懂了,但是行持的的确确不是一下能够改得过来的。

【Karma】- What to do if you are frightened after understanding karma and its effect?

When we understand the definitive relationship between karma and its effect, yes, in our minds, we will be greatly shaken. It can also be said that to those who are virtuous, this will bring tremendous encouragement. But to those who do not act accordingly to the Dharma, a great fear will develop. So here it tells us that we do not need to be so frightened, we need not be so frightened. This is because for an ordinary being to advance step by step, it is absolutely impossible for us to get to the goal in one step. We must follow the stages to advance slowly, advance slowly. And in the process of learning, one must first rely on the excellent teacher. From there, the first thing to do is to obtain the correct philosophical view. After one obtains the correct philosophical view, one strives to change and to practice. Practice to gradually, gradually clear away the previous erroneous, non-virtuous habits. These are the necessary conditions. Therefore, though you have heard and understood [the teachings], the actual practice is indeed not something that can be changed immediately.
