Teacher's Moving 8 Words


view in chinese

What should we do when others slander us?

Teacher used Hanshan as an example (a legendary figure during the Tang Dynasty, who was misunderstood by the masses but was later well-loved for his poems) and asked, "What should we do when others cheat, bully, insult and beat me?"

The reply: we should be patient with the person, let him be, avoid but respect him. Then wait for a few years, and look for him?

Teacher ended by saying, "Regardless of what happened, I will continue to benefit him (to be free from cyclic existence)."

*(last sentence is translated from these 8 words - "无论如何,还要度他”)
