【How to Listen】– Depending on our own practice
All Buddhas are without exception, endowed with great love and compassion, there are no exceptions – they all have great wisdom. His loving and compassionate heart is set to help all beings, his wisdom understands all phenomena, and he is capable of accomplishing it all. If he can instantly transform us into Buddhas, of course he would do so! Since that has not happened yet, clearly this means that it does not work this way. Thus all Buddhas have said, “I cannot turn you into a Buddha, I can only tell you how to achieve it. I must tell you (the way), next, whether you achieve (Buddhahood) depends whether you practice the teachings accordingly.” Doctors are like the Buddha. He gives you this explication and once you hear it, then, wow, this is so important! What should be done? “Taking great pains to uphold them.” Strive hard, this is what we should hold in high esteem .
