DISCOURSE BY MASTER JUN HONG LU FOR SINGAPORE’S BUDDHIST FRIENDS
DHARMA PRACTICE IS THE WAY TO END SUFFERING
Spiritual relief can only be achieved when one is free from suffering. When a person starts cultivating through practice of Dharma, they will be able to overcome their suffering gradually and will begin to feel that they are progressing consistently with incremental elimination of karmic debts over time. By maintaining such a positive mind set, they will be able to progress in their cultivation for sure.
The wonder of practising Buddhism is that it helps to stop you from re-visiting the painful past and prevents you from dwelling on those troubles indefinitely. Most importantly, it frees you from suffering. By taking the first step, you have already relieved yourself partially from suffering and progressed in your state of mind.
When two people are engulfed in an argument, they lose their sense of rationality. You are only able to analyse the situation objectively if you are not involved in the argument. As an independent third party who finds the argument uncalled for, you should try to pacify them.
At this juncture, Master would like to share some words of wisdom with you. To liberate yourself from worries, you have to understand the true meaning of life and learn to let go of all undesirable things and people around you. Once you are able to let go, you will be able discard the burden that weighs you down forever.
Today, you will attain immeasurable Dharma joy if you understand the true meaning of life, cultivate your mind through practice of Dharma, performing life liberations and making vows.< About Spiritual Cultivation
