【The Varieties of Karma】- making preposterous criticisms
It was told in the Mahāratnakūṭa sutra which has just been recently taught. The honorable Mahākāśyapa said, "Normally when we develop one moment of hostility toward the Bodhisattva or any behavior of malice, this will produce an incredible karmic effect!" However, do you know which person is a Bodhisattva? We don't. How do you know if one is a Bodhisattva? There are certainly too many Bodhisattvas in this world and we certainly won't be able to recognize them. I have learned the teachings for more than 20 years, after much guidance from the excellent teachers, I finally see the various signs and traces which indicate who, and there are so many. We all now know that the late Guǎng Qīn abbot was one who had come again. We would only say this after his passing. We would not have talked about it before he left. There are many obvious facts and they continue to happen. If this is the case, how do you know they aren't here now? Therefore, for us to be casually making preposterous criticisms, making preposterous criticisms, is extremely harmful to ourselves. This where you need to pay absolute attention!
