Buddhadharma : Fall 2005
fall 2005| 56 |buddhadharma Those who consider the inessential to be essential And see the essential as inessential Don’t reach the essential, Living in the field of wrong intention. Those who know the essential to be essential And the inessential as inessential Reach the essential, Living in the field of right intention. As rain penetrates An ill-thatched house, So lust penetrates An uncultivated mind. As rain does not penetrate A well-thatched house, So lust does not penetrate A well-cultivated mind. One who does evil grieves in this life, Grieves in the next, Grieves in both worlds. Seeing one’s own defiled acts brings grief and affliction. One who makes merit rejoices in this life, Rejoices in the next, Rejoices in both worlds. Seeing one’s own pure acts brings joy and delight. One who does evil is tormented in this life, Tormented in the next, Is tormented in both worlds. Here he is tormented, knowing, “I have done evil.” Reborn in realms of woe, he is tormented all the more. One who makes merit is delighted in this life, Delighted in the next, Is delighted in both worlds. Here she is delighted, knowing, “I have made merit.” Reborn in realms of bliss, she delights all the more. One who recites many teachings But, being negligent, doesn’t act accordingly, Like a cowherd counting others’ cows, Does not attain the benefits of the contemplative life. One who recites but a few teachings Yet lives according to the Dharma, Abandoning passion, ill will, and delusion, Aware and with mind well freed, Not clinging in this life or the next, Attains the benefits of the contemplative life.
