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.
