(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
IS IT POSSIBLE THAT A PERSON WHO IS COMPASSIONATE IS FULLY EQUIPPED WITH HARMONIOUS WISDOM
Caller: With regards to compassion and harmonious wisdom, is it possible that a person who is compassionate is fully equipped with harmonious wisdom?
Master Jun Hong Lu: It is not necessarily the case. Being compassionate can either be on a fundamental level or a profound one, where the latter is the equivalent of great mercy and great compassion. What is the meaning of harmonious wisdom? It is something that is attained through spiritual cultivation. Being compassionate is the basis for attaining a stage of ‘harmonious wisdom’. Without this foundation, how would one be flexible and accommodating? For instance, there are varying degrees of compassion, including minute displays of it. Do you think that someone with such a degree of compassion is equipped with harmonious wisdom?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Let’s say that someone is sick and you offered him some medicine that is expiring soon. Arguably, your intention was to help; but do you think that such a minute display of compassion is an accurate representation of harmonious wisdom in you? If you are a person who is equipped with great mercy and compassion, you would surely offer the best medicine possible to them. When others get cured, so would your spiritual heart.
