To repent is to silence the hopeless mind, to be eternal, and at the same time to give rise to the Bodhi mind, to light up the wonderful light of the Buddha nature that is available in each of us, that is the permanent light, the permanent light. mat.

3. Interpretation by progression

The process of progressing to dharma practice usually takes a considerable amount of time, starting from the moment of repentance and ending with the eradication of the roots of sin. If there is no recurrence of the offense, but the root of sin and evil still exist in the store consciousness, it is not called an eradication of all sins. This case only escaped the sanction of the judicial court and the gossip and criticism of the public, but it did not escape the retribution caused by the evil people.

The process of eradicating the root of sin is divided into three stages:

– Practitioners realize that they have a heart.

– Practitioners do not see where their mind is.

– The cultivator realizes he has a heart.

Phase one

The mind says this is the mind that always follows the movement and never stands still. The guilty person always finds all sorts of excuses to run away from the crime, justifying that he is innocent, even though this argument is not solid or believable. It is the ignorant mind that does not recognize right and wrong, good and evil, only stubbornly believes in his own thoughts, thinking that he has not done anything wrong, worthy of being called a crime.

If you want to change karma, you must first change your mind, you are going to practice to change your mind from echo to foot.

How do you repent and make mistakes?

Those who have initiated repentance and those who have not yet initiated repentance know that they have false thoughts, they have acted according to the dictates of that mind, while those who have not yet initiated repentance do not admit that they have false thoughts and I still consider my own mind to have caused me to commit a crime as my true heart, so I acted in a righteous manner. Only when a cultivator of the Dharma can keep his mind calm and unmoving, even for a moment when he wakes up, he realizes that he has a false mind when he commits a crime.

This moment of awakening is very important and difficult to meet, important because it is the first step to realize that there is a false mind and a sin, then only to find out the cause and how to eliminate it, difficult to meet because it is necessary to realize that you have a false mind. , there is a fault while I myself feel that there is no. The difficult thing in the first step is to confirm something that we believe does not exist.

This difficulty is going against their will, suppressing pride, and clarifying the ignorant mind of the penitent. The awakening of this precious newspaper in Buddhism is called awakening, awakening interprets the meaning as a person who has just woken up from a dream and is no longer living in a dream state. Confucianism in the part of self-cultivation is called Minh Minh Duc, lighting up the inherent bright virtues, expressing the good intentions of everyone available, the reason for doing unwholesome things is because of being blinded by desire. Literary language is called lighting up conscience and colloquially called breaking stupidity. The expression in Vietnamese folklore is very flexible: The fool is difficult to see, considered as being hidden in a thick, hard shell, the fool cannot see. It takes a chance to break the hard shell for the fool to show, and the fool to see it. Knowing his stupidity, the fool will gradually stop being stupid.

Phase two

Here the cultivator cannot find his mind anywhere. It sounds weird at first, but it’s true. This stage since the deluded mind is eliminated at the end of the stage once the practitioner has awakened from his delusion, broke his stupidity, since then, he knows how to admit his fault, find the cause and how to get rid of the sin. apartment. The hopelessness has been eliminated, so the cultivator can’t see it anymore. Has the true heart been revealed yet? Please tell: True mind has not yet been revealed because when the false mind is eliminated, it is no longer possible for cultivators to understand the truth and remove the fetters of afflictions. But it still takes more effort to cultivate to achieve enlightenment, then the true heart will be revealed and the practitioner will see it. The false mind is eliminated, the true mind has not yet been revealed, during this time of emptiness, the practitioner cannot find his mind anywhere.

At this stage, the practitioner feels bewildered, afraid, lost, doubtful, not knowing which way to act, what motivation? No more hopelessness, wrong thoughts do not dictate to me anymore. From confusion and confusion leading to fear of doubting that we may be on the wrong track while practicing Dharma, maybe we have lost our way into the false utopia! People who are well-educated and well-cultivated do not feel that way, they single-mindedly believe in the Three Jewels and continue to practice, believing that they have progressed through the first stage and into the second stage.

Only when a cultivator of the Dharma can keep his mind calm and unmoving, even for a moment when he wakes up, he realizes that he has a false mind when he commits a crime.

Only when a cultivator of the Dharma can keep his mind calm and unmoving, even for a moment when he wakes up, he realizes that he has a false mind when he commits a crime.

This is the process of changing karma from bad to good. If you want to change karma, you must first change your mind, you are going to practice to change your mind from echo to foot. The process of turning the mind is not completed, so it feels empty, there is nothing to fear and doubt, on the contrary, it should be excited to move on to the next stage. The state of feeling empty is considered as the state of a patient who has just recovered from a serious illness, is still recovering, and has not fully recovered.

Stage three

At the end of the stage, the two practitioners felt like they had lost everything as they bravely entered the third stage. Why ? That is the miraculous result of the practice of contemplating the mind as impermanent, the dharma of no-self, all existence being just dharmas of dependent origination, interdependence, arising and passing away. From the empty and tasteless, the person who advances to practice thanks to the five forces of constant practice leads to the realization of the true mind of the righteous path. At the end of the stage, the three skillful practitioners realize that there is a mind, that is, the true mind, the right mind, the good mind, the Buddha mind is correct.

The transformation of mind from echo to true in the process of meditating on the Dharma is summarized as follows: Knowing that the deluded mind turns to the mind of emptiness, the mind of no-seeking, of no action, and then transitioning to the true mind. This is the principle in Buddhism, from seeing the mind to not seeing the mind, and then from not seeing the mind to seeing the mind, this change is rational form. Having the true mind that comes from not seeing the mind is the truth that is not magical.

Only when a cultivator attains a wonderful friend will he attain Buddhahood. In the first stage, one sees the mind corresponding to form, understood in the sense of name-and-form, form, and illusory form. In the second stage there is no citta corresponding to emptiness. In the third stage there is seen the mind corresponding to form, understood in the sense of wonderful existence, wonderful use. Repentance is to silence the hopeless mind, to be eternal, and at the same time to give rise to the Bodhi mind, to light up the wonderful light of the Buddha-nature that is available in each of us, that is the permanent light, the permanent light. mat.
