What does it mean to truly rely on the Dharma and not on people? Many people say that relying on the Buddha’s Dharma does not rely on people, and the Buddha has indeed said that relying on the Buddha’s Dharma does not rely on people. Now many people have understood this principle, and they always think that the Buddhist scriptures are the Buddhadharma, and that people are people. In reality, this concept is completely wrong and goes against the Buddha’s intention.

What does it mean to truly rely on the Dharma and not on people? When all of us studied Guang Lun, we already understood one thing: the kind mentor may have problems with his species, or his precepts, or his knowledge and appearance. Bodhisattvas and kind mentors are all accomplished practitioners of the Dharma. In terms of Dharma theory, practice, and realm, they are all accomplished. From this point of view, he is the Buddhadharma, and the Buddhadharma is him.

Therefore, the “Guang Lun” and ” The Sutra of Consummate Enlightenment” both talk about how to rely on kind mentors. That’s called relying on the Buddha’s Dharma and not relying on people. You don’t want to look at this or that appearance on the outside, what kind of race, whether he looks good or not, and whether his voice sounds good or not. The Buddha Dharma is the key, and that is called relying on the Buddha Dharma and not relying on others. I hope everyone can understand it.

We must diagnose these diseases well and remove these problems before we are eligible to learn all the Dharma! We are patients, and we are terminally ill, deeply ill.

First of all, we need to restore our awareness bit by bit. We must know that we are ill, and we are very ill. We are so ill that we talk nonsense, think things are true, and obsess about ourselves. When we are so sick, we always think these things are real. When we are watching a movie and others come with guns, we are scared away, we think it is real, we think it is true, we are obsessed with themselves, and we chase after things without knowing ourselves.

Therefore, we are now trying to find a way to have a good diagnosis of our disease, and to be a healthy person as soon as possible, not a sick person. We are all sick now. Then the Dharma is the best medicine that can cure our disease.

People who are truly filial are selfless, and they won’t say how I feel, how I want to, or what I want to do. Whatever Master says is what he says, and that is the quick achiever.

If you really like a person, you must like and respect everything he likes;
When you truly love someone, you sacrifice everything you have for the other person.
Like everything about the other party, such condition will be like a diamond, firm and not bad;
Hate everything about the other party, such condition will be like tofu, and it will be broken when you touch it.
