【The Varieties of Karma】 - The infinite spirit of enlightenment
But there is one thing that you should make a note of! That is the aspiration that we have. What is the nature of the spirit of enlightenment? It accords with the spheres of reality, the spheres of reality [the entire Dharma realm]. Therefore it's like in numerical calculation, whichever number that is multiplied by infinity will result in infinity. Even if you give a granule of sugar or even if you are giving it to an ant, it wouldn't matter what the other two wheels [i.e the gift and recipient] are. If your mind is infinite, the result will be infinite. When a Bodhisattva does anything, this action accords with his spirit of enlightenment and this makes it infinite. If you obstruct this action now, may I ask, would you be able to compensate for this? This Jambudvipa is only Jambudvipa, how can it be compared with infinity? The Jambudvipa is within the solar system and is very small. In the Milky Way system, you can't even locate it. This is very plain and clear. This is what we should understand. Therefore, for us to truly learn the teachings, we should know the true spirit of the Mahayana. This is the point that we should be certain to understand! We should understand this point. This type of karma is extremely powerful, extremely powerful.
