希求解脱 : 饿鬼之因

所以平常我们的心里边,这种贪、嗔的心相,那个就是将来到地狱里面去感得饿鬼的,所以你长劫受苦的就是这样。眼前哪,我们到那时候,一到那时候猛利的贪生起来了,你永远不得满足的,就是这个心。将来为什么会感得那饿鬼,就是这样,你就永远不能满足。那么偏偏贪心的人也就是这样,哎哟,好东西样样顾自己,完全顾不到人家,所以没有积一点福报。所以那个心里面永远不得满足,偏偏又造了这个业,所以他吃的时候,对不起!又找不到东西吃,这个。所以眼前你了解了这个因果关係的话,你很明白就了解将来这果性的状态。所以我们现在多思惟、多观察,那唯一的方法,来静息、转变它。

【Mind Intent on Liberation】- The cause of becoming a hungry ghost

Hence, what we normally have in our minds are these subjective aspects of attachment and hostility, and these are what will cause us to be reborn in hell or as hungry ghosts.  Therefore, this is how you would suffer for numerous eons.  At present, whenever possible, our intense attachment will arise.  You will never be satiated.  This is the type of mentality.  Why would someone become a hungry ghost in the future?  It is because of this. You can never be satisfied.  For those who are attached, they act this way: ah, they take care of themselves with all the good things and they do not even care about others.  Therefore, they cannot accumulate any merits.  This is why they can never feel satisfied, and they have created the karma.  That is why when he wants to eat, I am sorry!  He cannot find food.  This is it.  That is why if at present you understand the relationship of cause and effect, you will clearly understand the state in which the effect takes place.  Hence we should now spend more time to reflect and analyze.  The only method is to stop it, to transform it.
