[Hope·Embark] Lotus is Born From Mud 莲花出自淤泥

Where is the warrior born? Timid and weak, selfish and self-centred, jealous and comparative, the mind is moving up and down, and being famous and profit oriented, they are in abundance and the lotus warrior is born from these mud shores. Do not look down on the buddha nature within us. Once it is inspired by the virtuous teacher and begins sprouting, it will grow on these filthy grounds of afflictions into the most beautiful lotus , upright and out of this world, standing above the common crowd.

勇士是从什么地方出生的?胆小怯弱,自私自利,嫉妒比较,心里跌宕起伏,名闻利养一大堆,就是从这些烂泥滩里生出了勇士的莲花。不要小 看自心中的佛性,一旦它得到善知识的启发而萌芽,就会在这些烦恼的粪土中,开出最美的莲花,亭亭出尘,卓尔不群。
