希求解脱 : 獅子跳的路,兔子我不敢跳

密勒日巴尊者怎么说啊?「狮子跳的路,兔子我不敢跳啊!」他这么了不起的人,他把他看成是兔子,密勒日巴尊者真正了不起的地方!所以藏传不管哪一系、哪一派尊重他,他一生有这么高成就,就靠这个——他自己晓得我条件差。其实他条件真的差吗?如果我们比比,我们绝对没有一个人比得上他,乃至于百分之一、千分之一,他自己看「我是一个兔子」。哎哟,我们现在还看得自己很高咧,觉得:哎哟!这个不行、那个不行;看看那个瞧不起,那个瞧不起;这个也不要,那个也不要。那所以我们不成就的原因。

【Mind intent on liberation 】– The path that a lion walks on, is not one that a rabbit like me can walk on

What did the honorable Milarepa say?  "The path that a lion walks on, is not one that a rabbit like me can walk on!"  He was such a magnificent person, but he saw himself as a rabbit, this is the real brilliance of the honorable Milarepa!  Therefore, in the Tibetan lineages, no matter what schools or lineages, everyone venerated him.  He had such high attainments in his life, because he relied on this - he knew that he had poor qualifications.  Actually, did he have poor qualifications?  If we compare ourselves (to him), none of us would compare, to even one hundredth of him, or one thousandth of him.  (But) The way he saw himself was, "I am a rabbit."  Ah-yo, we now value ourselves so highly, we think, "Ah-yo!  This is not right, that is not right. We would look down on this person, look down on that person.  We do not want this, do not want that."  This is the reason that we do not achieve.
