4/7: WHERE THERE IS DHARMA, THERE IS A WAY

Venerable Master Hsing Yun (1927 - , Fo Guang Shan)
English translation: Rosalyna Huang

What is Dharma?

Cause, effect, and retribution are Dharma. Sour, sweet, bitter, and spicy tastes are Dharma. Compassion, loving-kindness, joy, and equanimity are Dharma. Benefiting others and the world is Dharma. Tolerance and selflessness are Dharma. Proactively doing good deeds is Dharma.

The Noble Eightfold Path is Dharma. The Six Points of Reverent Harmony is Dharma. The Seven Factors of Enlightenment is Dharma.The Three Emancipations is Dharma. The good deeds and undertakings in this world are all Dharma! Truly, where there is Dharma, there is a way.

── from Mi Wu Zhijian
(Between Ignorance and Enlightenment)

INSPIRATION


Recorded by Leann Moore         0:26

Digging a well when thirsty
     shows lack of forethought;
being conceited and rude
     leads to few helpful opportunities;
observing without moving forward
     increases shame and affliction;
having no sense of conscience brings
     misfortune upon a house.
