【听闻 How to Listen】靠自己行持 Depending on our own practice

听闻 : 靠自己行持

没有一个佛例外的,都是大慈大悲,没有一个佛例外的都是大智慧。他的慈悲心啊,要救度一切人,他的智慧了解一切,他的力量能做一切。如果是他能够把我们转化成佛的话,当然绝对会做嘛!现在做不到,明白表示就是这样。所以每一个佛都是说:「我没办法把你转化成佛,我只有告诉你怎么成。告诉是非我不行,然后呢,成不成是要你如理去行持。」医生跟佛一样,他告诉你这个教诫,你听了这个教诫以后,然后呢,说哎呀,这个重要啊!应该怎么办?「应多励力」,要努力,这个才是我们珍爱执着之处。

【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 .
