希求解脱 : 趁年轻

所以它(指‘老’)如果一口气来的话,你真是没有一个人能受得了,可是我们现在还居然安之若素,居然还说还是慢慢地来,怎么能慢哪?现在只有唯一的年轻力壮的时候。所以我现在看见你们在座的一些年轻同修,居然躲在后面,猜猜反正轮不到我,偷懒哪,是最大的损失啊!反过来说,我看见那些年轻的同修,我真赞叹、真高兴,我现在老了没办法了,我只有赚一点什么? 随喜功德。

【Mind Intent on liberation】- To take advantage of being young

Therefore, if it (aging) comes all at once, truly, no one can take it.  Yet we seem to be fairly contented now and think we can take things slowly.  How can you take it slowly?  You can only do this when you are young and able. That is why, when I see some of you young fellow practitioners who try to hide in the back, thinking that it will not be your turn anyway and be lazy, it is the greatest loss!  On the other hand, I see some young practitioners here whom I truly praise, I am really happy.  I am old now and cannot do much.  What can I only earn?  Merits from rejoicing.
