【Intent of Liberation】– Lovely vs terrifying
So to those “lovely” things, please be aware! You must also think of their terrifying and undesirable sides. If you do not practice on this, it will be useless. Talking about precepts, the key to the precepts lies right here. So why do we become helpless when adversity arises, despite that we constantly talk about precepts? It is because you have not seriously contemplated on it. Therefore, as some people talk about precepts, talk about this, talk about that, but when they are faced with obstacles, they did not apply the precepts to the situation. I really feel sorry for them in my heart, but all I can say is, “What a pity! How ignorant!” Nevertheless, he still considered himself smart. It makes me feel that nothing is more ignorant than this! I think to myself that he is my teacher. Amitabha Buddha! I shall never make such mistake.
