Merciful Revelations of Ji-Gong Living Buddha
Let me ask a question: is Ji-Gong Living Buddha handsome? (Holy Teacher is very handsome!) Are my disciples beautiful? Alright, fine. You are all handsome gentlemen and beautiful ladies. Handsome and beautiful, now this includes everyone.
Let me ask disciples this: did you feel happy hearing this? (Yes.) Let me ask again: are beautiful flowers beautiful when in a bad mood? (No.) Are ugly trees beautiful when in a good mood? (Yes.) The duality of beauty and ugliness arises because the heart changes, right? Let me share this with my disciples: a beautiful heart sees the beauty in everything, a joyful heart sees the good in everything.
It’s great that disciples came to class today. Let’s not pursue hedonistic lifestyles anymore now that you have found your true selves, alright? Obstacles are turning points for positive changes. They are also good opportunities to gain wisdom. Do not be afraid. Do not fear. Disciples will forever have your Holy Teacher as your support.
All of my disciples are part of a great team. Let’s work together to beautify this world. It is hard to articulate how delighted I am to meet my disciples here. The next class is filial piety. Can any of my disciple recite the poem “Lu E”? Read over the whole poem and think about the great sacrifices and selfless love of your parents. I hope that all of my disciples can become filial children, so your parents can laugh heartily and be truly proud of you!
