THE THREE POISONS ~ GREED, HATRED AND IGNORANCE
Master Jun Hong Lu:
Greed, hatred and ignorance are the three poisons that will hurt our souls like venomous snakes. Greed can lead to obsessive desires and put a strain on our spiritual well-being when such desires cannot be met.
Hatred of others, ourselves oreven our society, is in fact allowing one to be immersed in evil nature. We must understand the impermanence of life. We were born into this world empty handed, and will leave with nothing when we die. Cultivate a tolerant attitude and forgiving mentality towards all matters in life. Only then can we achieve spiritual wellness.
Only with the merciful and compassionate mentality of Bodhisattvas, can we acquire happiness and blessings.
