20171029啟眾鋪路度人間Inspiring People to Pave the Bodhi Path and Deliver All beings

I’m very touched. I see many volunteers from many places sharing the Dharma with us. This makes us feel the (spiritual well in our heart) has been dug. So, when we go back, we must study the Dharma diligently and put into practice immediately. Like what Master told us when something is right, we should just do it.

After hearing volunteers’ sharing, I feel I gained a lot of clarity and see the bigger picture now about laws and regulations, organizational structures, and how a team can understand a problem together and reach consensus. The information helps me think more clearly.

Most importantly, I came to learn how a team can work together. I also want to take the charity mission and recycling work back to my community.

I am 80 years old. However, since I have chosen this path, I want to follow Master’s teachings and go among people to serve. I want to do Tzu Chi’s work well.

Indeed, our world needs the Dharma. To spread the Dharma requires determined people to listen to the Dharma, gain insights, and put it into practice. After that, they share their experiences with others. In our Jing Si Dharma lineage, we want to spread to Dharma in our world. I hope people can study and immerse themselves into the Buddha’s teachings to find life’s truth and apply it in their daily lives.

Those who follow the Jing Si Dharma lineage must practice the Dharma diligently. You have heard of this, yet, have you truly comprehend it? Have you strived to understand the Great Way of Truth? Have you vowed to attain enlightenment? Have you deeply entered the sutra treasury and comprehended the teachings in them? Have you developed wisdom as vast as the sea? Have you? Have you made great aspirations and vows to go among people to spread the Dharma and guide them onto the Bodhisattva Path?

In guiding people, we use love, not power. We need to use gentleness. Even though we make great aspirations and vows, without the warmth of love and kind words, having only principles won’t get us far. Therefore, guiding people means touching their hearts. If what we do is right, others will follow and join us. In working with us, they are willing to share our workload.

Step by step, they get closer to Tzu Chi and shoulder volunteers’ responsibilities. This is what we must do. This Bodhisattva Path is long, so we must pave every inch of it with love.

In following the Jing Si Dharma lineage, we must practice the Dharma diligently and make vows to deliver all beings no matter where they are and whether they are rich or poor. We must deliver all of them. We interact with anyone who has affinities with us. Our great vow is to deliver all beings; that is how we walk the Tzu Chi Path.

With the teachings from the sutras, we pave a path in the world. We must pave every inch of this path with love to every community, family, and every corner of the world. We need to do this for every community. As we pave this path, (not only do we serve the community,) we also need to reach people’s hearts. In this way, people can be inspired to walk on the Tzu Chi Path. Then, they can inspire other people (and bring more people onto this path.)

This is what we living bodhisattvas must do. The Jing Si Dharma lineage began with our generation. As long as I’m alive, all my disciples will be the first generation of Jing Si Dharma lineage. We are the ones who create the path. We are the ones who pave the path. We do this with love; we create and pave this path well so that future generations can walk steadily on it for eons to come.

We must go amongst people to serve. In doing this, we understand principles that are subtle and profound, and the source of afflictions as well as ignorance. When people are entangled in afflictions and ignorance, we stand by them and listen mindfully to their problem. We observe and analyze their affliction from their interaction with people, which created their problem and suffering.

Being an observer gives us a clear perspective. After we’ve learned the Dharma, we can apply the teachings to solve their problem. Then, we share our analysis of the problem with them and help them see clearly. After they let go of their problems and accept our analysis, we know that the Dharma works. When we use the Dharma, it brings out our wisdom to benefit others. We ourselves have no afflictions. We ourselves have no afflictions because we have the Dharma in our heart.

Only by going amongst people, can we say, “I was like that before and had the same afflictions. From other people, I see the source of my affliction.” Do you understand? (Yes.) By seeing the source of afflictions, we must eliminate it. This is elimination all afflictions and getting rid of ignorance. That’s how we walk the Bodhisattva Path. We must go amongst people to serve. There is no other way.

So, Tzu Chi’s Bodhisattva Path is very practical. We walk on this path and pave it ourselves.
By understanding life’s principles, we pave this path ourselves. This is our Jing Si Dharma lineage. We now must aspire to make vows to make this path smooth. Carrying out great aspirations and vows takes a lot of work, but the chapter of Peaceful Practices tells us to persist on this path.

Along with making great vows, we need to purify our speech, action, and thoughts. That’s how we can have the same understanding of a problem, reach a consensus, take collective action, and walk on the great Bodhi Path. We need to make great vows to become a person who create a path.

Let’s focus our speech, action, and thoughts in creating this path. We all are spiritual companions to one another. Therefore, we must work together in unity, harmony with love and concerted effort. That’s how we generate and double our strength. Only by uniting our heart and efforts can we pave this path well and inspire more people to join us in purifying people’s heart. Only when people’s hearts are purified can we truly eliminate the impurities in this world.
