业果 : 真等流及假等流

等流有三种等流,有一种叫真等流,有一种叫假等流,还有一个分位等流,分位等流不去讲它。什么叫真等流?就是这个造作等流。就是你杀的时候这个因是什么因啊,前面你就是「杀」这个心,当因地当中你存了这个的话,然后呢果地当中,欸!这个心又现起了,就这样。所以这个是的的确确地、真实地,跟你的因相应。然后呢领受等流的话,这个叫假等流。因为你杀的时候把别人的寿命弄短了,所以你这一生,你的感得的寿命也弄短了;因为你杀了别人,使人家痛苦了,所以这一次啊,你就得到疾病的痛苦,这是跟那个因相似的。

【The Varieties of Karma】- The “real” and “false” causally concordant effects  

There are three types of causally concordant effects.  One is called the “real” causally concordant effect (真等流 the certain consequences that follow on a good, evil, or neutral kind of nature, respectively). Another is called the “false” causally concordant effect (假等流 the temporal or particular fate derived from a previous life's ill deeds, e.g. shortened life from taking life). Then there is the fractionally concordant effect (分位等流 each organ as reincarnated according to its previous deeds, hence the blind.)  We will not talk about fractionally concordant effect here.  What is the “real” causally concordant effect?  That is the causally concordant behavioural effect.   When you kill, what is the cause?  It was the motivation to "kill". If you have harboured this in the causal period, then during the effect period, ah, this type of mentality arises again.  It is just like that.  Therefore, this is certainly, truly concordant to your cause.  Then regarding the causally concordant experiential effect, this is called the “false” concordant effect.  When you kill, you have shortened another person's life.  Therefore, for your life now, you will have a shorter lifespan.  Since you have killed others and made others suffer, therefore, this lifetime, you will have to suffer illnesses.  These are similar to the causes.
