The Dharma Lecture on November 12, 2017, Teacher Duan gave a speech on Chapter Three of “Sutra of the Original Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva”. The Teacher led us to read paragraphs of Sutra about Queen Maya asked the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, and the Bodhisattva instructed us the reason we living beings of Jambudvipa continuously take rebirth in the six realms of samsara without a halt--- what exactly we did to lead to it, and how the different things we do under what kind of circumstances cause different karma. First of all, the Bodhisattva directly pointed to the most severe five incessant karmic retribution. To prevent us(beginners) from confusion and slander, the Teacher especially illustrated with simple examples of our life to make us understand rationally why being unfilial toward parents, even killing them, and doing damage to the Buddha, Dharma, Sangha will bring about unimaginably horrible karmic consequences. Actually, the so-called karmic retribution of Hell is called by beings’ own behaviors, speech and mind. Through such comprehension, we knew how to truly love and protect ourselves---take good care of our mind because everything in this world can’t be separated from the nature rule of “cause and effect”. Although we can’t immediately leave the samsara, at least we can protect ourselves from falling in three evil realms.

Thank our Teacher, Susan Duan, for leading all the members of the Association and the relatives to chant the “Sutra of the Original Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva” together on September 3, 2017. The Teacher taught us to dedicate all the merits of chanting the Sutra to all beings of innumerable worlds, wishing all the beings who are in the painfulness, vexations and karma can have causes and conditions to connect with the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and step on the path of enlightenment making themselves free from sufferings and gain happiness, realize the truth and restore the nature of pureness.

Following from the observation practice of last time, this Study of All Members was designed by our Teacher Susan Duan helped us find the problems in our mind through the gap between our observation and the reality so that we can antidote them. Therefore, we realized that “All things were created by our mind”. And what kind of life will the muddy and unstable heart bring to us?
