业果 : 乱开口 vs 请教律师

现在我们同学当中,常常有这种同学,晓得了一点点就欢喜乱开口,告诉别人这个样、那个样。看看他们这些大成就者,说任何一件事情啊,这个传承源源本本,说得清清楚楚。所以我们现在学习这件事情的时候,也一定要了解得明明白白。不晓得的话,你宁愿存疑说:「欸,对不起!这个我不大懂,这个问题你去问某大律师。」凡是这种事情的话,所以这个律师,为什么叫作律师呢?不是说他持律叫作律师,所有的出家人必定要持律,所以称为律师的话,他除了自己持律以外,对开遮的行相,非常清楚、非常明白,他能够决断任何疑惑。

【The Varieties of Karma】- speaking loosely vs seeking advice from teacher of vinaya

Now among our fellow students, there will often be a type of student, who as soon as they know a little, they like to open their mouths and speak loosely.  They will tell others this and that.  Look at the ones who already have great achievements here.  When they say anything, the exact lineage source for this is disclosed very clearly.  Therefore, when we are learning this, we should certainly make sure we understand it clearly as well.  If we do not know, we would rather doubt ourselves and say, “Eh, sorry!  I do not understand this that much yet.  You may want to take your question and ask a particular great teacher of the vinaya,”for things as such.  Therefore, why do we refer to them as a “teacher of the vinaya”?  It is not just because he upholds the ethical discipline so we call him that.  All the renunciates must uphold vows.  In order to be called a “teacher of the vinaya,” besides upholding the vows himself, knowing how to uphold the vows in different circumstances, he has to be very clear and very unequivocal.  He is capable of providing a resolute answer for any question raised.
