业果 : 正见未失

所以前面为什么在抉择这个,总抉择业果的时候,他下面告诉我们,说万一你犯了尸罗、轨则、淨命、正见,不能圆满哪,正见未破不怕;道理特别的,就是我们初机行持的人,的的确确要想圆满不可能。而且《瑜伽菩萨戒本》上面特别说,什么叫犯戒,什么叫破戒。犯戒也就是说,就是我们一心想努力,然后呢真实去学,你了解了去学,但是因为你烦恼重啊,偏偏有很多做不到。那个时候,然后你惭愧说:「哎呀,我怎么做不到啊!」然后你忏悔,努力去学,这种情况不叫犯戒。那么什么呢?就是你自己还做得不对,还觉得我对了,或者虽然犯了,你不晓得惭愧,这个就犯戒了。这个犯不犯,主要的是什么呢?就是说你努力肯不断地改善,正见未失,努力增上,时时向上,这个就是我们初机修学应该了解的,这个是我特别说明哪!

【The Varieties of Karma】-  Have not lost your philosophical view

Therefore, this is why in the earlier section when determining this , [i.e] general determination of karma and its effects, he particular told us : if you should violate ethical discipline, rituals, livelihood and philosophical view, and are unable to perfect them, as long as you have maintained the correct philosophical view, you shall not be afraid. The principle in particular [was told]. That is, for us who are beginners in our practice, it is certainly not possible to be perfect. Also, 《瑜伽菩薩戒本》[i.e a scripture about precepts] has said specifically regarding what is incurring an infraction to your vows, what is a cardinal transgression. Incurring an infraction means: though we have strived with all of our might and then truly tried to learn, you have understood it and tried to learn, but because your afflictions are too strong, so you often cannot accomplish what should be done. By then, you feel ashamed and say, “Ah, how come I cannot do it!” Accordingly, you repent and strive to learn. Under this circumstance, you have not really incurred an infraction. So what [would count as an infraction]? That is when you still have not done correctly and still think I am right. Or, though you had incurred an infraction and you do not know to feel ashamed. This is then incurring an infraction. To incur or not incur, what does it depend on primarily? That is you strive to continually improve yourself, you have not lost your philosophical view, and you strive to progress and are trying to improve at all times. For us who are beginner practitioners, this is what we should understand. And I wanted to specifically point this out here!
