【The Varieties of Karma】- Inappropriate usage of the Three Jewels' property
【Stealing is weighty due to its basis if it involves taking a great deal, or taking good things; or is stealing after deceiving those who trust you; 】
“Those who trust you" refers to the property of the Three Jewels. Therefore, the property of the Three Jewels is something you absolutely cannot touch! Speaking of this, those of us here are often careless with the properties of the temple. Sorry, though you have no desire to steal, because the basis [i.e the property of the temple] itself is incredibly weighty, therefore, if you just use it a little inappropriately, it becomes an extremely serious mistake, an extremely serious mistake!
