Whosoever wishes to face the reality
And wants to gain more knowledge and experience
Must put into practice
And experience directly and solidly
Whatever he/she deliberates over and over again.
He/she should remember
Not to take it just as a kind of trial or experiment.
If you often discern your own defects,
Then, you will notice that everyone is smart.
If you are willing to know your own drawbacks,
Then, you will find that everyone is lovable and respectable.
The term “Buddha” in Buddhist scriptures
Sometimes refers to the name of a Tathagata
And sometimes refers to the meaning of “enlightenment.”
If a follower of Buddhism who reads and studies Buddhist scriptures
Cannot distinguish the difference between the two,
He/she will never have any approach to the Buddha’s thoughts.
