DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF THE LITTLE THINGS THAT WE DO

Master Jun Hong Lu:

As the saying goes, ‘great undertakings have small beginnings, and difficult tasks are tackled from where it is easy’. After all, even a large tree has the origins of a small sapling; a high platform is constructed piece by piece; and walking a thousand miles would not be possible without that first step forward.

Indeed, all who have accomplished great undertakings did so bit by bit. Hence, do not refuse to do something because you perceive it to be insignificant as the accumulation of these acts can give rise to something important.

In any domain, as long as you persist in putting ten thousand hours of deliberate practice, you could become an expert regardless of the field. Likewise for Buddhism studies, it is our daily recitation and spiritual cultivation that forms the foundation of Buddhahood.
