MAINTAIN A HUMBLE MENTALITY

 

Master Jun Hong Lu: When our Buddhism practice tells us to give in to others, it is not an act of conceding that we are inferior to them; rather it is a mental attitude that is neither haughty nor humble.  There are some who seem to stand out from the crowd, however, we should not forget that, in the wider world, there are surely others who are more talented than us.  Hence, always remember to bow our heads and maintain a humble mentality.  As long as we are steadfast in our endeavours, trust that we will have others hold us in high regard.  Indeed, a truly successful person will still shine, earn respect and be admired in spite of their humility.
