Do Not Pursue Fame and Material Wealth

Master Jun Hong Lu:

As Buddhist practitioners, we should not pursue worldly desires like fame, material wealth and pleasure of enjoyment. Think about it, if you bite into a rotten apple plucked from a tree, you will soon realize the change in taste.

Every gain in this elusive and transient life inevitably contains suffering. Hence, to avoid the pain of loss we must let go of our insistence on planting the seeds of cause. This elusive and transient life is a world apart from the reality; just like a filthy place in the human realm can never be clean and untainted.
