2014.03.22 SNN: The Sixteen Views [Part 2]

Discussion Topics

  1. Do you have (or do you know anyone personally with) "a sense of Mission"?  Tell us what makes them different from your other friends or acquaintances.  
  2. "Everyone, when we learn Buddha-Dharma, we must treat spiritual practice as our mission. We must vow to walk on this broad path. If we do not train ourselves, the path will be rough and difficult. There is a saying: "The teacher leads us through the door but the practice is up to us."  It takes time to be able to take in Master's fact, some say that Wisdom at Dawn is "too heavy" for most people...especially for Group Study and younger people.  What do you think?  Is Master asking too much of us?
  3. "The same goes for any profession. Do not just fulfill your basic responsibilities. Strive to fulfill your mission, and be diligent. Every day and every moment, we must truly take good care of our minds. If your mind runs wild, bring it back, and understand why it did that, so you can control it. This is how you save yourselves."  Question:  "save ourselves" from what? from whom?
