Who’s a bad person?

Comments Off on Who’s a bad person?

我們不是法官,就算是法官,判決也不一定對。很簡單,這世間上,和你敵對的,你就認為他是惡人,那他看你呢?也是惡人啊!你如何判斷誰是惡人,這就是一個問題所在啊!那麼,到底誰是惡人?說有貪、瞋、癡就是惡人,問題所在,哪一個人沒有貪、瞋、癡呢?自己講:「我已經沒有貪了,沒有瞋了、沒有癡了。」你自己講沒有貪、瞋、癡了,我都不敢講了,師尊都不敢講了。所以,誰是惡人呢?就很難講。

We are not judges.  Even if we are, our verdicts may not necessarily be right.  The idea is simple.  Those who are against you, you see them as villans.  But how do they see you?  You are a villan to them too!  So how do you determine who’s bad?  That is the problem –  who’s a bad person exactly?  You might point to someone still showing greed, hatred, and ignorance.  Then again, who hasn’t greed, hatred and ignorance?  You might raise your hand, but that’s your own belief.  As your guru, I can’t even say so myself.  So tell me, who’s a bad person?  The truth is it’s very hard to say.
