Ready to accumulate merits by just listening and rejoicing the legacy of our lineage masters? Yes! It is that simple.

入行論有云:「若人生淨信,得果較前增,佛子雖逢難,善增罪不生。何人生此心,我禮彼人身!誰令怨敵樂,歸敬彼樂源!」 宿世得善知識教導,能對十善法、菩提心厚植敬信本,讓一家重享天倫,統一贍部洲。菩薩不忍眾生苦而久處輪迴,誓願生生世世利益眾生,難道此時此刻是中斷的嗎?值得我們想一想,如何才能感得菩薩廣大利生的美好世界呢?

依师 : 大乘善知识

Virtuous teacher Drom-don-ba said: “What is this Guru of Mahayana like? When the guru speaks, the students will be initiated with deep understanding.” It is not merely telling you: “this is the [knowledge] you need!” It is not like that! The Mahayana teacher is capable of resolving all sorts of issues, totally settling them. As for the recognition of the encompassing teachings – the capacity has to be proper quality, sufficient quantity, and perfect knowledge. Therefore, when you practice accordingly later, the systematic order will be unmistaken: what is the immediate benefit and what will the future ultimate effect be like? Thus, between cause and effect, it is totally flawless and the systematic sequence is completely in order. This should be considered as the true virtuous teacher.

那么这个善知识敦巴尊者就说:这个大乘佛法当中的师长,是什么样呢?他呀,那一位师长说的时候,能够发生无量知解。不是简简单单地就是告诉你:“就这个!”不是!他能够各方面问题都了解、都解决,对于认识——质正量圆,这么圆满的认识。那么然后你照着去修行的时候呢,他一定次第不误,眼前得到什么样的利益,将来究竟果位是如何,所以因果之间丝毫不差,次第步骤一点不乱,这个才是真正的善知识。
