Buddhism is based on compassion. This is a familiar mantra. However, compassion is not the patent of Buddhists. Mercy is the common wealth of all living beings. Because of compassion, life is full of infinite meaning. In the years of life, because of compassion, the future has unlimited vision.
The heart of compassion is the source of life for all things. Mercy is the nature of Buddhism. With compassion, all beings must become Buddhas. Compassion is also a human being should have the conditions, a person would rather have nothing, but not without compassion! A compassionate person who acts like the sun, clean water, and flowers can bring light, purity, and joy to the world.
Compassion is not the failure to fight back, to curse and not to speak back. When justice is mercilessly suppressed and excluded, and when a gentleman is subjected to unprovoked slander, he can stand forward. This is a brave and positive compassion. Mercy needs wisdom. Mercy is not a momentary compassion, but it helps people through the touch of justice. Compassion is not a lively dance with the crowd, but a service with righteousness; Compassion is not the benefit of selfish friends and relatives, not to mention the benefit of some people, the highest realm of compassion is grievances, equality, and selflessness.
Compassion is the morality of one's own practice. It is not used to measure the measure of others. True compassion is not necessarily a kind of praise and encouragement. Sometimes it is difficult to use the power of King Kong to reduce evil and evil. Many people in society often misinterpret the meaning of compassion, so that mercy becomes condoning and condoning, leading to social disorder; Even misapplication makes compassion a hotbed of evil. For example, if you abuse your life, you will harm your life; Misuse of money, but promote greed and so on. Therefore, true compassion must be guided by wisdom, otherwise it will be self-defeating and will not be good.
Compassion is not a fixed point, but the continuous sublimation of emotions. The "Hua Yan Jing"'s 'I hope that all beings will leave suffering and do not seek peace for themselves', this kind of 'take the world's worries as worries and the world's pleasures as pleasures'. The mind, It's compassion.
Things in the world are not satisfactory, and it is inevitable that there will be losses when we act with compassion; However, only compassion can turn the tide into a jade, and resentment is invisible; Only compassion can lead to a good relationship and achieve a career. Compassion is the inexhaustible treasure of life! (Source: Fo Guang Shan, Excerpted from Human Fortune News, May 4, 2000)
