Excerpts from Australia Sydney Buddhist Fellowship Meeting – 26th January 2019
WHAT CHARACTERISTICS DO PEOPLE WITH LESS THAN 20% OF KARMIC OBSTACLES POSSESS?
What characteristics do people who have less than 20% of karmic obstacles possess? Please mercifully teach us about this, Master Lu.
That depends on the level of spiritual development. People with less than 20% of karmic obstacles have a higher level of spiritual development. They will not fight and quarrel with others. They always have smiley faces. Do people who always have a long face, have less than 20% of karmic obstacles? People’s faces can tell you that. People with less than 20% can laugh sincerely; but not for those who always have long faces, always bear hatred towards others, and always criticise, ‘this isn’t good, that isn’t good’.
Looking at your face, you have less than 10%. Since I hold “less than 10% of karmic obstacles” within my heart, so I look at others to be less than 10%. If you place Buddha in your hearts, you would look at others as Buddha; if the demon is in your heart, you would think all people are evil and bad, like ghosts. A kind-hearted person always thinks that others are good. Understand? (Yes.)
