Just two examples. One sentence from the Sermon of the mount: " How blest are those who hunger and thirst to see right prevail; they shall be satisfied."
The Dalai Lama: "This passage seems to indicate the simple fact that those who are willing to embark upon a path accept the hardships and the pain involved will reap the rewards of their commitments. The verses imply that if you act in a certain way , then you experience a certain effect, and if you do not act in a certain way you will not experience that effect. This is the general principle of causality, which is behind the principle of karma." This is often presented by the principle, "Nothing exists without a cause'.
The second example is about what Jesus replied when he was told that his mother and brother had arrived asking him to come out to them. Jesus reply: "Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?" And looking around him he said, "Here are my brother and sister and Mother." The Dalai Lama: "This passage shows us on the part of Jesus a certain attitude of unimportance to his own mother and sisters. This tells us that true and genuine compassion is a compassion that is free from attachment, free from the limitations of personal bias. Genuine compassion springs from a clear recognition of suffering on the part of the object of suffering and from the realization that this creature is worthy of compassion and affection.Read more ›
