(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
WHAT SHOULD WE RELY ON TO ELIMINATE ARROGANCE
Caller: Greed, anger, ignorance are eliminated through discipline, concentration and wisdom. In that case, what should we rely on to eliminate arrogance?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Rely on humility and prudence so as to guard against arrogance and impatience. Do not be haughty; one should not be arrogant as after all, what does Bodhisattva teach us? Bodhisattva teaches us to be modest.
Caller: Yes, indeed.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Bodhisattva also teaches us to strictly observe the precepts. If you observe the precepts, you will not be arrogant or view others with suspicion, isn’t that right?
Caller: Yes, take the precepts as the foundation.
Master Jun Hong Lu: When you have trust in sentient beings, how will you develop suspicions?
Caller: I understand now, Master Lu.< About Spiritual Cultivation
