业果 : 自性无记

"自性无记",自性无记的它本身就不会感这个果的。什么叫自性无记?走路、坐在这地方,就是这样,所以四威仪中很多,睡觉,这个不会感果的,睡觉没有善恶之分。当然你睡的时候懒惰,这个懒惰的心却是,但是睡本身却不是,这个我们要了解的,这个要了解的。所以,不要说:"哦!睡觉是无记的,那我反正一天到晚就睡觉。"你这个懒惰的心,却是不行喔!这个我们分得很清楚。

【The Varieties of Karma】- Those that are naturally ethically neutral

"Those naturally ethically neutral," those that are naturally neutral will not issue an effect.  What is naturally ethically neutral?  They are things such as walking, sitting.  Just like that.  Therefore among the four deportments, there are a lot.  Sleeping, this will not issue an effect.  There is no virtue or non-virtue in sleeping.  Of course when you sleep and you feel lazy, then this attitude of being lazy would count [as being non-virtuous].  But the sleep itself does not count.  This is what we should understand.  This is what we should understand.  Therefore, we should not say, "Oh!  Sleeping is ethically neutral. So I can sleep all day."  This attitude of laziness is not right!  This is what we should discern clearly.
