Karma – To have in depth learning with a sense of regret
With only one ethical discipline, even with the least severe one, if one cannot guard it well, and he claims that “I am a practitioner of the Mahayana,” this type of person is very dishonorable ! Not only should he be reproached, he should be, should be very strongly reproached. (Translator note: The Engish Lamrim text says “very dishonorable.” The Chinese text is more like “should be very strongly reproached.”) There are many of us now who make this mistake — one would say, “Ah, for the Mahayana teaching, one need not be concerned with small things!” Wrong! Conversely, since practitioners in the Mahayana should not be criticizing those in the Hinayana, should practitioners of the Hinayana be criticizing those in the Mahayana?” This is what we should understand! Therefore, no matter under what circumstances, we need to understand this fact. We should also embrace an attitude of regret and strive to learn in depth!
We should strive to learn in depth. Only when we are able to practice [the teachings] ourselves, are we on the right track. Don’t be thinking that you’re right by just understanding some names and terms superficially! This is a grave mistake. And, if with just an understand of some names and terms, we use them as excuses, that would be even more frightening!
