VIRTUE IS GIVING OTHERS HOPE
Master Jun Hong Lu: Someone once asked me, “What is Virtue?” Let me tell you that virtue is giving others hope, in other words, imparting wisdom to others. Virtue is not an external pursuit. It originates intrinsically from our compassionate nature, which develops into selfless love for all sentient beings, with the aim of helping people in this world.
Buddhist practitioners shall sow seeds extensively in the field of merits and diligently cultivate wisdom to accomplish the true purpose of life. The cultivation of both merits and wisdom is essential in practising Dharma. This is because merits and wisdom are just like a pair of aircraft wings. An aircraft could not take off when either of its wings is absent. Therefore, a blessed man certainly possesses wisdom, while a wise man is certainly blessed. So, let’s create a true life of Dharma through the cultivation of mind, merits and wisdom.< Words of Wisdom
