【The Varieties of Karma】- Dharma protectors support “Dharma”
The Dharma protectors will certainly support, but Dharma protectors only support the Teachings. They do not support things like the way we imagine they would. Suppose the Dharma protectors support everything, then this should be the era of the sublime teachings, right? Isn't this very clear? It is very obvious that if Dharma protectors are supposed to support the Teaching, wouldn’t they not be supporting Buddhism? Why did the Teachings decline from the era of sublime teaching, to semblance teaching, and then the degeneration of the teaching? Where did the Dharma protectors go? Does this not explained very plainly and clearly of this phenomenon? Therefore as we often will talk about Dharma protectors, who are Dharma protectors then? That is, if you can truly do things according to the Teachings, the Dharma protectors will certainly support you. This is the definition of Dharma protector. If your conduct is in utter confusion (not in accordance to the teachings), the Dharma protectors may not necessarily support you! The Dharma protectors are here to protect "Dharma". If you do not accord with the Teachings, what is there for the Dharma protectors to support? We need to understand this.
