【The Varieties of Karma】- Be grateful to the excellent teacher’s reproach
We should pay attention in circumstances like this, when sometimes others come to teach us or tell us [what we did wrong]. Whether they are your fellow practitioners or your teachers, sometimes they may say so nicely and sometimes they may reproach you. You should know that whether they say it nicely or they reproach us, this is exactly pointing out where our problems are. At that time, if we truly wish to strive to learn and practice, then at that time we should earnestly be thankful and say, "I am so grateful! He pointed out my problems." This is a point that we should understand. We often do not understand this point and continue in delusion, protecting ourselves and talking about him.... when others tell us, we are unconvinced and [will] defend ourselves. After that, we even feel, "This guy! He is specially finding faults with me." If this thought continues, the consequences are horrendous, very horrendous! It has been said earlier, if you develop any little [bad thought] toward your teachers, in case this person is a Bodhisattva with the spirit of enlightenment, if that one moment [of bad thought] arises, ah, the consequence is very horrifying!
