(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
BENCHMARK AND CHARACTERISTIC OF A PERSON WITH GOOD MIND CULTIVATION
Master Lu, time and again you have stressed the importance of cultivation of our mind; whereby only through proper mind cultivation that one’s behavior will be dignified. To facilitate our self-check and self-reflection, can you advise us what are the benchmarks and characteristics of a person who does it well?
Master Jun Hong Lu:
A person who cultivates his mind well,
1. Will not quarrel with others;
2. Will not scold others;
3. Will not hold any lustful thoughts, keeping his eyes at the right place;
4. They are refined and courteous; allowing others to speak first; they do not tell lies and neither do they incite disharmony.
These are all the characteristics of a person who cultivates well, that are obvious to others. Fundamentally, a successful person’s behavior and mannerism will resemble that of Bodhisattva’s, which leads others to perceive that he bears a resemblance to Bodhisattva. Contrarily, if a person’s behavior and mannerism bear no resemblance to that of Boddhisattva’s, how could he possibly have cultivated well?
I understand. Thank you for answering my question, Master Lu.< About Spiritual Cultivation
