The Eleven Universal Agents [Part 5]

Discussion Topics

  1. Others have (this) suffering, and we also have this suffering. We want to relieve others of their suffering. Don't we also have to relieve our own suffering?  Please share what you feel or think about when you see statement... Does the answer to this question give you a different understanding of Tzu Chi now?  How is Tzu Chi different from other "charities" or places where one can volunteer their time?

  2. In learning Buddha-Dharma, we must first have self-discipline. Let our will be strong and our thinking correct. Only then can we transform others.   How does Master suggest we acquire more self-discipline?  What do you think are some ways?

  3. "Slight deviations in religious thinking and philosophy can cause extreme evil."  Master discusses how this "shortcut" to "heaven" has caused so much evil and disaster.  How can we avoid falling into the trap of "shortcuts" in our Tzu Chi lives?  Suggestions for anyone? Please share...
