业果 : 业果的两个内容

对于业果来说,有两点内容我们不知道,一个是由业感果的道理,我们不知道;第二个,就是第一义谛。这个业感果彼此之间的究竟的原因在什么地方?说空,空故业感缘起,所以业感缘起是因果的道理,这个是第一层。第二层呢,因为业感缘起所以它的空,这是第二层,第二层我们称它为第一义,叫胜义。那么现在对于这些事情,你了解了它的过失、患害,慢慢地跟胜善相应,既然生了胜善相应的话,当然你要远离它,那个时候生起种种的静息的方便。

【The Varieties of Karma】- The two meanings of karma

 With respect to karma, there are two meanings that we are yet to know.  One of them is the principle of cause and effect (how karma produces effects).  We do not know this.  The second one is the supreme (ultimate) truth.  What is the ultimate relationship between karma and its effects?  It is emptiness.  It is due to emptiness that karma exists, and the dependent arising.  Therefore, karma and the dependent arising are the principles of cause and effect.  This is the first level.  What is the second level?  Because of karma and dependent arising, thus, there is emptiness.  This is the second level.  The second level is called the supreme truth, the ultimate truth.  So now with these things, if you understand its faults and harms, you will gradually concord with supreme virtues.  Since you would develop concordance to supreme virtues, you will stay away from non-virtues and carry out all sorts of ways to correctly restrain yourself from the non-virtuous actions.
