Buddhism is the path leading to liberation from suffering and samsara. The children of the Father are present to make life more colorful and bright, so that people can rejoice in peace and joy. And in it, bodhisattvas, who live with ideals for others, enter the world armed with love and understanding of compassion and shining wisdom. Those baggages are not naturally obtained by the Bodhisattva, but above all, an effort to cultivate, practice and practice in the thousands of subtleties of daily life, in countless worries for the direction of wisdom. unsurpassed that the Buddha has graciously imparted to all sentient beings, so that all beings can live in peace and happiness in the golden light. Bodhisattvas entered the world with four methods of subduing people’s minds, in order to lead people to the Way. That is the Four Laws.
The Four Noble Truths in the Practice of a Bodhisattva
The concept of the Four Photographys
The Buddha taught the following about the Four Noble Truths:
“Monks, there are these four regents. how is four?
Generosity, loving speech, profit, companionship
There are, bhikkhus, these four dharmas.” .
Four photography, also known as Four photography, Four photography, Four things, or simply called Four photography, Four things, Four French, including four noble dharmas are:
Generosity: Bodhisattvas share with people what they need both materially and spiritually. In Buddhism, almsgiving includes: giving of money, giving of Dharma, giving of fearlessness. [財施, 法施, 無喂施].
Loving Speech: Bodhisattvas mingle with people with good intentions, with gentle, slow words with sincerity, full of love.
Benefits: Bodhisattvas bring practical benefits to people through the actions of body, speech, and mind.
Colleagues: In order to fulfill the purpose of helping people and saving lives, the Bodhisattva always puts himself in the situations and circumstances of others in order to understand people and love them more. From then on, the Bodhisattva’s sharing with others will be fuller and more meaningful.
The role of the Four photographers in practice
Charity [布施]: When a bodhisattva gives thus, giving thus, is all his own joy. Giving is not simply giving, but with the gesture of sharing that love, the Bodhisattva hopes to bring people to the light of the Way. Giving must always be accompanied by compassion to be the bodhisattva’s giving. Giving without the element of compassion, deviations can occur, unwholesome consequences can arise incalculably.
When giving alms, Bodhisattvas observe thousands of people and the world around them, to understand the sufferings of others more, to sympathize with others more, from there, compassion is cultivated and spread to people’s consciousness. The bodhisattva’s method of giving must be filled with love and sincerity towards people in need and opportunity. As a human being, a living being, who can be sure that they will forever live in a full and redundant scene throughout this ever-changing, ever-changing pseudo-life. Therefore, it is in giving that the Bodhisattva can experience life and understand more clearly how fragile and small the human condition is, as well as all living beings around. That fragility and smallness in the face of all storms and storms of the complicated, sad, and disturbing reality of life, always exists, always exists here and there, always changes like a non-stop flowing stream.
For the Dharma [法施]Bodhisattvas study Buddhism not only for themselves, but also learn to guide others in the right direction in life, on the right path, authentic with the aspiration towards the unsurpassed Bodhi goal. , penetrate into the existential nature of all things, in order to have a correct view, understand the illusory nature of all things, with a reasonable mind with oneself, with everyone and everything around. The bodhisattva understands that all living things are incalculably changing and constantly changing. In order not to indulge, not to indulge in the pursuit of false and lost illusions. From his own understanding, the Bodhisattva imparts to people the method to get rid of suffering. Therefore, the task of propagating the Dharma of the Buddha is an indispensable work on the Bodhisattva’s path.
With the practice of giving Dharma to others, the Bodhisattva will easily propagate the Dharma for the world, with activities such as: Holding a Dharma lecture at the monastery, or at a dignified ashram with all own deep understanding to convey to others is satisfactory and useful. As stated in the Vimalakirti Sutra, layman Vimalakirti, who had done immeasurable good deeds to help many people, now by skillful means, incarnated sick, and people came to visit. Mr., from the nobles to the poor, by the way, he preaches the Dharma to everyone. By his ability to preach the Dharma, Vimalakirti wanted everyone to penetrate the Buddhadharma to understand the Way, cultivate it, and practice it. He preached an eternal truth that all things, including mental and physical dharmas, are subject to incalculable changes, all are manifestations of a universal law that governs the entire universe. human life, both in terms of human and cosmological views. As long as we exist, we are governed by that law. That is the law of Dependent Origination, an objective law. It operates according to its own rules, like the earth revolves around the sun, flowers bloom in spring, flowers fall on the floor in winter. No one has the power to tell the earth to stop spinning, no one has the power to send the thousands of flowers back, and the swallows still fly.
Because as the Bodhisattva knows that: “In spring, one hundred flowers will fall, and in spring one hundred flowers will smile” (Fox Ticks, Zen Master Man Giac) is just a changing phenomenon. [vô thường], usually and nothing else. Here, they represent the life and death of human beings whose impermanence is always naturally present, demonstrating the law of “Depending on appearance in appearance”. [trong Thành-trụ-hoại-không] of the French” . The Bodhisattva understands that impermanence is an eternal truth, a truth that never changes, but the Bodhisattva always keeps his vows firmly in mind to live a life of dedication, to sacrifice, to serve the world. be complete. For the Fearless [無喂施]The Bodhisatta is firm in his will, steadfast in his mind. The Bodhisattva walks freely, peacefully, without fear in the face of illusory magic. The bodhisattva helps people to have fearless inner strength, making them firm in their religious beliefs, and to experience worldly life in peace and happiness.
love language [愛語]: The Bodhisattva personally gives alms with loving words, with gentle and gentle words to calm the opposite person, so that the recipient can remove the guilt of poverty because of having to receive alms from others. subsistence. Those words of love, at first glance, seem very simple, but not easy to do at all. It is an experience that anyone in life has experienced, once seeing themselves behave in a way that causes pain to others, just because of a word released in anger, uncontrollable. Not even in a moment of anger, loss of self-control, but it can still happen in a moment of great calm, clarity. Just for some reason, want people to suffer, we casually hurt the opposite person. Human nature is like that, from many generations now, for all eternity. The nature of greed, anger, and stupidity reigns in living beings like a constant sleep, never awakening, so we just like to hurt people, hurt people without hesitation, without a second of reflection. . Real life shows that it is not only external influences or unintentionally bring suffering, but sometimes just by saying a word, we have sown the seeds of pain to people.
Take advantage [利行]With all these experiences, the Bodhisattva entered the world carefully in every word, every thought, in every small act of kindness, in order to bring love to others and benefit others through the karma of body, speech, and mind. . The bodhisattva understood that: “Above all, helping by beneficial actions is to lead people away from the evil path, so as not to fall into the sufferings of hells, hungry ghosts, and animals. In other words, people with little faith, we encourage the growth of faith. People often break precepts, we find ways to prevent people from falling. The miserly people I encourage show the benefits of giving.” .
Partner [同事]: Bodhisattvas do not stop at sharing what they have, but always put themselves in the situation of others to sympathize, love and give what they can to make life better. To do so, the Bodhisattva puts himself in the situation of others to understand and share more. When he wants to save people, wants to give people joy, Bodhisattva always considers himself as the opposite person to know the urgent requirements of the opposite person. The bodhisattva’s mind must be generous enough, compassionate enough to accommodate all levels of individual consciousness, in countless practical thoughts and actions of life, going into the world with the aspiration to help the world, bring peace. comes to everyone in equality, without division, without calculation, without comparison, with a spirit of empathy, harmonious penetration in a light and relaxed state. As the Buddha taught: “Ananda, you see the Tathagata, in the past he practiced good conduct, giving alms, loving speech, taking advantage of actions, his colleagues; use this good root to capture sentient beings without distinction, this is my father, this is my mother, my brothers, my sisters, my dear friends. Ananda, I have only one equal taste for all sentient beings, my mind does not discriminate.” .
The bodhisattva mind always keeps equality in dealings with everyone, because the bodhisattva understands that his discriminatory attitude will bring suffering to others. Life attitude…
