【The Varieties of Karma】 - build up the spirit of the Mahayana Vehicle by taking small steps
Speaking of this, there is something which makes me sigh! Though we are here learning the Mahayana teachings, whenever there is something little to be done to benefit a few people around us, ah, no one is willing to do it. We would find all sorts of excuses, find all sorts of excuses. This is truly very bad , very bad ! We must begin by doing small things to cultivate and increase this mind [that is willing to benefit others]. That's when you will have a chance to slowly, slowly [develop]. When people speak of the Mahayana, or the Mantra vehicle, oh-yo, they would say they have received some great initiation. It's of no use at all, no use at all! This is what we should understand correctly. In brief, to know the real meaning, not only should you understand the literal meaning, you will need to recognize the mental state that this literal meaning depicts and to change your mental state. That's when you would be correct and would be cultivating!
