Apply the true Dharma and succed

The jewels give refuge. The Buddha provides love, and the Dharma gives a way to face and overcome obstacles.

But many people become impatient, and do not persevere when small obstacles are encountered. They may feel that the Dharma is useless or try to apply some spell in order to get rich.

This seldom work. But when we apply the true Dharma, rather than our own ideas, we cannot fail.

Sharing the Fruits of Life

Human beings are like trees, always trying to grow delicious fruit. It looks very rich, but if you don’t share these riches, strong winds may blow the fruits off the tree, and even the tree itself can fall.

Thus, we should share out our merits, riches and happiness with others, truly practicing  offering and giving. In this way, the existence of the human tree becomes meaningful. This is the real value of life.
