 What is a Buddhist "return"?

What is a Buddhist "return"?



We must now ask, what does it mean to 'return'? What does it mean to be 'bodhi'? Because this sentence is the cause. "The Three Realms of Exceptional Dignity are all honoured and supported together", that is the result. How is this cause to be cultivated? This is of great concern to us at the moment. "The word 'return' means to go back and forth. Originally, the merits and virtues we cultivate ourselves must be our own reward, but now we turn back, saying that I do not seek personal reward for all the good deeds and karma I have cultivated, but wish to give this reward to all sentient beings. If this meaning is not clear to you, let us use an analogy. Like a farmer who grows crops and rice, he works hard every day to sow the seeds, and when the harvest comes, he doesn't want it for himself, but gives it to all those sentient beings who are poor and have no food to eat, and gives it all to you. This is what is meant by "giving back". Generally speaking, I always keep a little for myself and give away the surplus. This is what we usually call "giving back".

  In this way, what if you don't have any for yourself? If you have your own, others will naturally provide for you, and you will receive more than you need. You are able to give to others, and the reward immediately appears, so there is no room for greed. This is why they are "the special reverence of the three worlds", no one does not respect them, no one does not offer them. No one would not respect them and no one would not make offerings to them. But if you keep a little bit for yourself, if you keep one percent, you can give 99 percent, but it is still not clean. The Buddha said earlier in this sutra: "There is no room for the least bit of unkindness." You say, "I give ninety-nine per cent, and I keep one per cent for myself." There is the slightest bit of unkindness mixed in. This truth is so deep that worldly people cannot understand it, cannot penetrate it, so worldly people cannot do it. That is why we often say that good and evil are mixed, and they are not pure goodness. The Buddhas and Bodhisattvas practise pure goodness, and the great masters and masters understand this truth, and the pure goodness they practise is why their rewards are incomparable.




What are the acts of abstaining from killing and releasing



 1. Do not kill a living being with your own hands.


  2. Do not abet others to kill.


  3. Do not help others to kill.


  4. Abstain from eating meat.


  5. Do not engage in trades related to killing.


  6Whenever there is worship, regardless of what is being worshipped, use vegetarian dishes, flowers and fruit, not animal gifts.


  7. If you see someone killing a human being, you should discourage them or buy the animal to be slaughtered with money and release it. If this does not work, or if the person does not sell the animal, then you should have compassion for the slaughtered animal, and even better if you can recite the Buddha's name or mantra for it.


  8. Do not abuse the animal.


  9Other actions that are contrary to killing.


  10. Abstain from killing and releasing animals yourself, and advise others to do the same.
