【忍辱 Patience】听不懂怎么办?If you do not understand what you have heard, what should you do?

忍辱 : 听不懂怎么办?

那么不了解当然有几个:第一个呢,你根本连它碰到了解的人这个机会都没有;然后呢,碰到了以后你如理地听闻,听闻了够不够?不行!这个我想我们现在都有这个概念,听得觉得有道理,自己用、用不上,为什么?他所以告诉我们叫「法思」,欸,你的的确确非要如理思惟不可的。

Patience – If you do not understand what you have heard, what should you do?

Of course there are a few reasons for not understanding. First of all, you cannot even come in contact with a person who understands this. And then, once you come across this person, you listen properly. But is listening enough? No! I think that we all have this concept right now. After listening, we think that it makes good sense and we try to use it. However, we cannot seem to apply it. Why? That is why he told us “being certain about the teachings.” Eh, indeed you will absolutely have to reflect properly on this.
