生生世世的陪伴

尽管我们现在被重重的烦恼围困,但我们心上的无自性是存在的,只是我们没有证得的缘故,所以我们才会很冤枉地一生一世、生生世世流转生死。但即便是这样流转,造作了很多恶业,佛菩萨和善知识从来没有舍弃我们,还是生生世世陪伴、醒觉我们。师父说:“只要我们不放弃,他会陪我们走完最后一程。”真的就像慈母对幼子一样,非常小心、珍惜地呵护着我们生生世世的善根。所以我们一定要好好地回报自己的善知识、佛菩萨,认真地修行,改变自己错误的知见、错误的行为。


A Companion Life After Life

Even though we are surrounded by all sorts of troubles in life, the Buddhist nature in our hearts is ever present. It is just a matter of us not having attained enlightenment and therefore we continue to be caught in a cyclical existence, from birth to death to rebirth, repeatedly life after life. Despite such a cycle and despite our wrongdoings in our everyday lives, Buddha and our virtuous teachers have never deserted us but instead they remain our steadfast companions in all our lives and continue to guide us fervently.

Our Master has said, “If you choose not to give up, I will continue to walk the last path with all of you.”

Our Master is as if a concerned mother, always caring and on the lookout for her children, carefully and preciously protecting them and nurturing them throughout their lives. Therefore, we have to strive our best to repay Buddha and the many virtuous teachers for their kindness and love, and for watching out over us. To do so, we will have to follow and practise the teachings accordingly, rectify our wrong views and correct our non-virtuous behaviors.
