【The Varieties of Karma】– Being a “fashionable” slave
The most comfortable [clothing] is that garment of cast-off rags. It is soft on the body. Then you can sit at home, lie on the sofa, and there is nothing happier than this. Eh, yet one feels that he has to work a lot. [He has to] work at least 5 days in a week. Then with the money he makes, he has to endure that kind of trouble be like this in a moment, like that the next moment something else again in another moment.
Then when he comes home, the clothing is dirty again. After washing it clean, ironing, and then hanging it up, he then goes out and have to put up a show for others, how pitiful! After busy making money for five days, there are two days left. What does he do on the last two days? Put up a show for others. What does he put up for others to see? He is still being led by the nose. Right or not? He has not a single bit of control of himself. Completely a slave! A slave to what? A slave to this thing. What is this? Increased wrong view!
