Father’s Day 2021

Today is Father’s Day. A father’s love is like a mountain, silent, deep and enduring, and provides a sense of steadfast support. Sometimes it is like an umbrella, sheltering us from the wind and rain, making us feel loved, exquisite and warm. I wish all fathers in the world peace and good fortune.

Faith is a way for us to get closer to great wisdom, to elevate our realization, and to quickly rekindle to great wisdom. However it is not the ultimate realization.

The path of wisdom

The great and divine men in the world come neither from the emptiness (akasa) nor from the realm. They were ordinary people just like each of us, but after meeting a wise teacher, they followed the path of wisdom. Through unremitting efforts, they eventually became extraordinary people.

Improving the quality of life

When you are happy, don’t be overly excited. Use the right mindfulness and awareness to protect your renunciation and bodhicitta. When you are suffering, don’t exaggerate it as if you are the unluckiest person in the world. Use both suffering and happiness in practice. When we are happy, stick to your practice and don’t be arrogant or become lazy. Do not give up when you are suffering, instead, have a strong inner strength that can overcome all difficulties. In this way, the overall quality of life will be vastly improved.

Practice means constantly practicing, listening to all kinds of unpleasant speech and seeing all kinds uncomfortable happenings. In fact, samsara does not distinguish between pure and impure. Everything is actually pure in the first place. Pure and impure are simply determined by your own state of mind. Master Huineng said, “Since all is void, where can the dust alight?” Everyone may memorize this, but they don’t practice it. So there is no use knowing more if you don’t practice.

Just like staying fit and healthy, you need to exercise regularly.

Using wealth and reputation wisely

We live in a developing society and need to work to earn a living. However, we need not be too attached to these concerns. Otherwise, it will cause a lot of suffering for ourselves. Rather, we should use wealth and reputation wisely, to accumulate merits and contribute to the society.

The wall

From the level of conceptuality, this is a wall…
Analyzed with wisdom, this is an illusory object…
From within a state of realisation, it is me.
~ Gyalwai Nyugu
