(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
WISDOM EQUATES TO HUMILITY AND BEING CAUTIOUS
Caller: A Buddhist practitioner thought that he was not diligent in cultivation. However, other Buddhist practitioners who know him very well had dreams that he cultivated well. For example, they dreamt that he became a Bodhisattva, brought a lot of delicious food for other Buddhist friends, or had a divine power to help them. Nonetheless, he does not think of himself in that way. What is the reason behind this?
Master Jun Hong Lu: When others say that you are good, but you do not think in that way, you are indeed humble. I mentioned this during my recent public talk where I asked what is wisdom? Wisdom is about being humble and cautious at all times. A wise person will humbly seek advice from others and learn a lot. You will not make mistakes if you do things cautiously and work on your goals one step at a time. So wisdom encompasses modesty and prudence. Understand?
Caller: I understand now, thank you Master Lu.< Words of Wisdom
