When seeing people chanting sutras, seeing people reverent to the Three Jewels, one must definitely encourage them and praise them. This encouragement and praise not only has great benefits for them, but in fact also teaches some ignorant people.
The ancient town of Pho Quang, the people of the world, only recited the scriptures, chanted praises of the scriptures, or respected the false, the monks of the hundred thousand means, recommended that people need to withdraw their hearts and minds, and gain the future of the present. thousands of millions of inconceivable merits.
Therefore, Pho Quang, if you see someone reading and chanting this sutra, even having a single thought of praising this sutra or paying respect, you should use hundreds of thousands of means to advise that person to develop diligence and not give up. , you will gain thousands of millions of millions of inconceivable merits in the present and in the future.
This is a recommendation. When seeing people chanting sutras, seeing people reverent to the Three Jewels, one must definitely encourage them and praise them. This encouragement and praise not only has great benefits for them, but in fact also teaches some ignorant people. They find this person praising their reading of the scriptures, encouraging them to read them, and can reveal their faith.
Therefore, advising one person means advising a lot of people, the reward for winning is inconceivable, so they “gain thousands of millions of millions of inconceivable merits”. This is as we often say “Once in the ear, forever a seed of the Way”, inconceivable merit is said from this place. If the person’s three good roots, merits, and conditions, all three are complete, then in this life he will achieve, which is a relatively difficult matter. But it’s not that there isn’t, in the life of the Dharma Ending, there are also five defilements.
A person with poor roots of good will cannot benefit at the moment, but the Vajra seed has been planted in the Alai Da consciousness, who now calls it pinning to your impression, your impression is very deep and permanent. will not perish. In the future, when meeting conditions, that is, meeting some favorable conditions, that seed will take effect and will be able to help you practice and achieve results.
