As long as sentient beings have merit ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

The great Longchenpa said, when the moon rises and when there is a clear lake, even though you may not wish it, the moon is reflected in the lake. Likewise, as long as sentient beings have merit, the image of the Buddha and his teachings and his blessing are reflected, even though you don’t search for them. But if the lake is murky and defiled and not clear, even though the moon is shining in the clear sky, the reflection of the moon doesn’t exist.

Likewise, even though the compassion of the Buddha is infinite and ever-present, if there is no merit among sentient beings for the Buddhas to reflect, then the chance of communication with the Buddha probably does not exist. However, judging not just from us, but from everything that is going on regarding the activity of the Dharma, I feel that we sentient beings still have a lot of merit.

Selama makhluk hidup memiliki jasa kebajikan ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Longchenpa yang agung berkata, saat bulan terbit dan ketika ada danau yang jernih, meski Anda mungkin tidak menginginkannya, bulan akan terpantul di danau. Demikian juga, selama makhluk hidup memiliki jasa kebajikan, Bayangan Buddha dan ajarannya dan berkahnya akan muncul, meskipun Anda tidak mencarinya. Tapi jika danau itu keruh dan kotor dan tidak jelas, meski bulan bersinar di langit yang cerah, pantulan bulan tidak akan ada.

Demikian juga, meskipun welas asih Sang Buddha tidak terbatas dan selalu ada, jika tidak ada jasa kebajikan di antara makhluk hidup bagi para Buddha untuk muncul, maka kemungkinan komunikasi dengan Sang Buddha mungkin tidak ada. Namun, jika dilihat bukan hanya dari kita sendiri, tapi dari segala hal yang terjadi yang berkaitan dengan aktivitas Dharma, saya merasa bahwa kita masih memiliki banyak jasa kebajikan.
