Faults-delusions.

Post by muni on Sun May 17, 2009 10:26 am

Some people told the visiting Naljorpa Drukpa Kunley: Yesterday you killed those animals and returned them to life, and that gave us great faith in you.
You must certainly have been a Buddha in your past life! Please, tell us about it.

"In the rosary of my many lives
I have taken the form of every creature;
I remember it only darkly,
Yet I feel it was something like this:

Since now I thrive in chung,
Once I must have been a bee;

Since now I am so lustful,
Once I must have been a cock;

Since now I am so angry,
Once I must have been a snake;

Since now I am so slothful,
Once I must have been a pig;

Since now I am so mean,
Once I must have been a rich man;

Since now I am so shameless,
Once I must have been a madman;

Since now I am such a liar,
Once I must have been an actor;

Since now my manners are so rude,
Once I must have been a monkey;

Since now I have such blood lust,
Once I must have been a wolf;

Since now I am so punctilious,
Once I must have been a barren woman;

Since now I spend my wealth on food,
Once I must have been a Lama;

Since now i am so avaricious,
Once I must have been a steward;

Since now i am soself-estimating,
Once I must have been an officer;

Since now I enjoy cheating others,
Once I must have been a businessman;

Since now I am so loquacious,
Once I must have been a woman;

But I cannot tell you if this is really true.
Consider the manner yourselves. What is your opinion?"



You pretent to be telling us your past lives, but actually you are showing us our faults! We thank you for that teaching. 👍
