This time the editorial is set aside to discuss another mistake we may need to consider, whether we are aware of it or not.
Even among those who engage in debates and discussions, it is common for people to use derogatory language. Maybe some say it comes out of the mouth unknowingly. But some people may use it to show that they know what others do not know. Isn’t it important to choose what happens somehow, knowingly or unknowingly?
I have seen people use the word “fool” in many Dhamma discussions. Sometimes saying “fools are not like that” is to point out that something that is not in accordance with the doctrinal cause and effect is correct. Sometimes he is called a “fool” for pointing out that the Dhamma is consistent with the doctrine of cause and effect. Not only the word ‘stupid’ but also the word ‘corrupt’ is used by some people to distinguish some monks and scold them.
“In the end, however, such actions are justified by comparisons with the Buddha, such as, So there are a lot of things to think about here”
How many times has the Buddha preached that only another Samma Sambuddha can compare with a Samma Sambuddha?
In short, I did not think, say, or do anything that Arihata himself or the Buddha himself would do. If he does so, he is doing it to a Sasara patient who is still suffering from ignorance. Isn’t that right?
This world is very dangerous … In this miserable world you and I have proven to be “fools”. Ever wondered how? Please you and I are still in Sasare. We have reasons for a future. You and I are still not wise enough to end the world of Nirvana.
So what right do you and I have to say that another Sasara orphan like us is an idiot? If you and I are still lustful, hateful and delusional, it means that our seal is not yet perfect.
“This is why the Buddha always preached to look within oneself. To identify and correct their own mistakes. This Dhamma fully shows the way to find oneself, to see one’s own truth, to study oneself. A way to find the fire that extinguishes from their mountain to the mountain …”
Realizing that there is no time to waste time looking for the whereabouts of others, one should try his best to use this Dhamma as much as he knows and understands every moment to find his own truth.
If you share that policy with another Sasara orphan like me, when you talk about your own stupidity and really discuss it with the desire to get rid of self-pity, you will be able to reap the full benefits of this Dhamma without feeling like someone else has been humiliated!
