我朋友说 My Friend Says

The above is taken in Semarang, Indonesia during a Pure Karma’s event.

At first I thought the Visitor is my friend Ksitigarbha Boddhisattva.

On closer scrutiny, this visitor looks more like Boddhidharma, the Zen Founding Patriarch of the Central Land 中土 or  Central Plains 中原 Zen Buddhist Sector.

Whats my point? :)

Well, many of us starts a conversation with “My friend says”…..

This is how the Truth always get distorted by word of mouth because each of us relate what we heard with different perception or discernment and thus what came out is always embroided with the Individual’s own version as per his own interpretation and comprehension.

For a truly sincere and aspiring to be True Yogi, the Individual is responsible to Self’s karmic influences and thus Must always do his utmost to adhere to the Truth.

Thus, one needs to ascertain what we heard or learn, or research into them before sharing with anyone.

However, it is of utmost importance when sharing Authentic Dharma to quote Buddha’s or One’s Root Guru, or any authentic masters or gurus, as accurately as possible in order not to create Negative Karma for self!

Do not start off with “My friend says…” when you have yet to ascertain the Truth! :)

If you do that frequently in one conversation, without substantiation, you will only show how shallow and lacking you are and having no mind or opinion of your own.
You are like a recording, playing back what others said!

GM Lu said: He said and you believed!!!

In Cultivation, One has to gain control of Self and be solely responsible for all One’s deeds!

Can you try your best to do this?

Hahaha!

Yes, GM Lu said that One has to change One’s unwholesome habits with cultivation of virtuous ones!

For example: All must help to remind LN that an enlightened one should not yell and shout, but must be reasonable! :)

There are sutras that only enlightened ones can accurately share!

Hold yourself in when you next attempt to relay someone’s statements with “My friend says….’!

Cheers all
