Great loving kindness and great compassion originate from
suffering great hardship and enduring adversities.
To understand a Bodhisattva, one needs to treat hardship and adversities as friends.
To become a Bodhisattva, one must bear great hardship and endure all kinds of adversities.
From the ancient times up to the present day, no one can truly achieve the Bodhisattvahood
without enduring great hardship or adversities.
In the course of life, people incessantly stumble into mistakes.
Usually, they would be regretful after making a mistake.
The most obvious differences between people are:
Some of them are obstinate and keep on making mistakes,
while others have the courage to rectify their mistakes;
Some of them are too proud to admit their mistakes,
while others are willing to admit and learn from their mistakes.
A world can be found in a particle of fine dust.
A life may grow out of a tiny seed.
A simple sentence may reveal the principle of matters.
A faint thought represents an intention.
The entire universe and human life are made of these trivial, infinitesimal things.
