【听闻 Listening】 病想 The idea of illness

听闻 : 病想

这个六想当中,第一个自己病¬——无明大病,无明大病,这是一切病的病根所在,这是我们修学佛法首先必须应该认识的,这个概念非常重要、非常重要!现在所以大部分人,说听懂了道理做不到的根本原因,实际上就对于这一点没有正确的认识。认识的都是文字上的,然后把那文字上的还告诉别人去,结果有一点功效,种下一点善根的种子。但是对于整个的佛法来说,眼前产生不了功效,不但产生不到功效,反而成为斗诤之因。

【Listening – the idea of illness】

Among the six ideas, the first one is to think of yourself as a sick person – with the great sickness of ignorance, the great sickness of ignorance - this is the root of all illnesses. This is what we should first recognize when studying the Dharma. This concept is very important, too important! Right now, the majority of us have heard and understood the theory, but are not able to accomplish it. The root cause of this, in reality, is due to the lack of a proper understanding of this concept. [Our] understanding is only literally at face value, and then [we] turn around to teach others the meaning of those words. There may be a little effect, and some virtuous seeds are planted. But as far as the entire perspective of Dharma is concerned, the immediate effect will not arise now. Not only will this effect not occur, it will turn into a cause of contention.
