To always hold your head high in life, without fear of anyone, you must be a true practitioner: Have unwavering faith in the Dharma; have virtue and good conduct; have a deep learning and understanding of the Dharma; there is effort, effort and perseverance to practice…

Once the Blessed One was staying at Saketa, in the Tikandaki Forest, and taught the bhikkhus:

Having accomplished these five dharmas, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu falls into fear. What is the year?

Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu has no faith, observes evil precepts, listens little, is lazy, and has evil wisdom.

Having accomplished these five dharmas, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu falls into fear.

Having accomplished these five dharmas, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu has no fear. What is the year?

Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu has faith, is virtuous, has much hearing, is diligent, diligent, and wise.

Having accomplished these five dharmas, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu has no fear.

(DTKVN, Tang Branch II, chapter 5, chapter Magical Dharma, section Fear, VNCPHVN Publishing, 1996, p.610)

DISCLAIMER:

Fear is a common mentality of people who have evil and wrong behavior and it is one of the great human sufferings. Once we have made mistakes, if we have done unrighteous things, we often live in fluctuating, anxious and insecure. Ordinary people, when they have defects and mistakes, are still so afraid, let alone more worried and insecure.

A bhikkhu, in addition to the meaning of being a mendicant (begging for food to feed himself) and breaking evil (practicing to eliminate evil), also means father of a ghost (causing ghosts to panic). A genuine bhikkhu has the potential to be a teacher of gods and humans.

With the precepts of concentration and wisdom and a bowl of three robes, the bhikkhu continued to teach everywhere, benefiting himself and others, in a peaceful, self-controlled and completely fearless state of mind before any force, no matter how sly and evil it is, it will not make the bhikkhu falter.

To always hold your head high in life, without fear of anyone, you must be a true practitioner: Have unwavering faith in the Dharma; have virtue and good conduct; have a deep learning and understanding of the Dharma; there is effort, effort and persistence to practice; Finally, there is wisdom to illuminate the delusions that cover the mind and overcome afflictions and defilements and achieve enlightenment.

The property of a cultivator who often gives alms to sentient beings is the Dharma (dharma giving) and peace, fearlessness (fearless giving). But once we are “falling into fear” ourselves, what can we do for ourselves, let alone help others.

The ancients said “real gold is not afraid of fire”, likewise, train yourself to become a true cultivator, not only fearless, but conversely, conquer other demonic forces and return to the righteous path. .
