业果 : 作不了主

所以我们真正要认识,认识什么?就是认识这个。假定这个不认识的话,那个就谈不到修行,这一点我们这个地方非常重要,非常重要,它会辗转相续的。这是为什么,我们自己作不了主的原因就是这样。你说作不了主吗?好像作得了主,就是前面一个境界现起了以后,你还觉得很有道理—欸,他来害你嘛,「我当然要报复啊!」他骂你嘛,「他说得没有理由,我当然要跟他辩论哪!」嗯,就是这样。是,在这种情况之下,我们觉得是可以作得了主,实际上你为什么心里会生起这种反应来?你为什么对这件事情这样想?这就是我们不知道的地方,这就是我们为无明所覆盖的。现在修学佛法真正要认识,就是要认识这个,大家懂不懂这个?

【The Varieties of Karma】- Unable to have control    

Therefore, what should we really recognize? What should we recognize? We should recognize this. If we don’t recognize this, we cannot even speak of cultivation. This point here is very important for us, very important. It is something that will recur continuously. This is the reason why we are unable to have control [of ourselves]. When we say, do you not have control? It would seem as if you have control [over yourself]. When a sensory object [or situation] appears in front of you, you will feel that you have lots of reasons, eh, since he harmed you, "Of course I should seek revenge!" He scolded you, "He had bad reasoning for doing this, so I have to dispute it!"  Um, this is just how it is. Yes, in this case, we would feel that we can have control.  But actually why would you have this type of reaction? Why do you think of this issue in this particularly way? This is the area that we don't know. This is how we are enshrouded by ignorance. Now when we learn the teachings, what we should really recognize is to recognize this. Does everyone understand this?  [Note: "this" refers to the "causally concordant behavioral effect".]
