【Intent of Liberation】- Do you think that this is pleasant?
If you take what is pleasant in front of you as pleasant, then you will be doomed! This is attachment, this attachment will increase. Attachment is something that is very horrendous. The more you are attached, the more it increases. I think we all have had this experience. The more you are attached, the greater the attachment becomes. Therefore, "to rely on the community and to depend on the community," there is a benefit to this. Whether our reasoning is clear or not clear, whether our latent propensity is strong [or not], but when we are among the community, we would always feel embarrassed [to sin]. Hence by relying on the community, we will more or less create less sin. However, if you are by yourself, then you are doomed. Your attachment will never be satisfied. Therefore, for whatever that we like/enjoy, don't view them as pure and pleasant.
