我們必須清楚知道，當我們修持佛法，學習佛陀和菩薩的行持時，我們並不是想要實現一些不存在的東西。 我們並不是想要得到那些根本沒有的東西。 在某種程度上，情況正好相反。 我們正在努力做到符合邏輯、有可能的事情。
What we have to really be clear about, is that when we practice the Buddha dharma, the way of the Buddhas and the Bodhisattvas, we are not trying to achieve something that does not exist. We are not trying to achieve something that is not there. It is just the opposite, in a way. We are trying to achieve something that is logical, that is possible.
佛教教義極難保存，如佛陀所說，主要由於我們的情緒。 當然，業力因素在發揮作用。 業力是一種巨大的力量，是一股非常強而有力的力量，將我們推向各種極限。 但是，通過嘗試理解業力帶來的挑戰和我們每天面對的痛苦情緒，我們實際上已經明白到慈悲和智慧的修持是多麼有益。 慈悲與智慧是我們面對業力和痛苦情緒的解藥。
Buddhist teachings are extremely difficult to preserve, mainly, as Buddha said, due to our emotions. Of course, the karma factor comes into play. Karma is a very strong force, a very powerful force that drives us to various limits. But by trying to understand the challenges of karma and the afflictive emotions that we face every day, we actually come to understand how beneficial this practice of compassion and wisdom is. Compassion and wisdom is the antidote to the karma and afflictive emotions we face.
