(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
HOW SHOULD WE UNDERSTAND THE SAYING: ‘THOSE INVOLVED IN THE MATTER ARE BLINDED TO THE TRUTH WHILE ONLOOKERS SEE THINGS WITH CLARITY’
Caller: What does it mean to say that ‘those involved in the matter are blinded to the truth while onlookers see things with clarity’?
Master Jun Hong Lu: This means that when in the middle of a situation, you would be bewildered and unable to see things with clarity. For example, when arguing with others, you will not be able to identify whether you are in the right or wrong. However, if you were to be a bystander in another person’s quarrel, wouldn’t you be able to know who is right and who is wrong?
Caller: I understand, it is just like how Bodhisattva watches us.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Indeed, Bodhisattva watches us and knows right from wrong whenever people are unhappy and quarrel. However, one who is directly involved in the argument will not have this knowledge, do you understand?
Caller: Yes, Master Lu.
