(三)了愿才能了苦,了苦就能了罪之 (1)

Fulfill your vows to end your suffering which will then allow you to end your sins and guilt

If you are thinking of ending your sins and guilt, just how will you go about doing this? What will you use to do this?

To do this you must be prepared to make some big and serious vows. If you do not make vows, you will just treat the whole thing casually and carelessly. You will not take life seriously and treasure it.

My disciples have forgotten their vows, continue to create sins and guilt. Who do you think will be the ones to suffer?

既然知道人生苦短, 又何值得你貪戀呢?
Since you know that life is full of suffering and impermanent, why would it be worth your while to continue to crave and create desires?

為何不珍惜你現在所結下的緣, 好好的惜緣,圓你這個緣呢?
Why wouldn’t you instead cherish the good affinity and fate you have created and to fulfill and complete them?

If you do not act and fulfill the vows you have made, the sins and guilt you have created in the last 60,000 years, how do you propose to be able to eliminate them?


Mr. Zhao was a very capable person. After graduating from university, he became a high school teacher for a few years.

He then decided he would change his profession and became a businessman doing international trading.

He was extremely successful in business due to his intelligence,ability and talent.

Back then , his main client was his good friend Mr Zhang Rongfa, the chairman of Evergreen. Initially there was only one ship running between the Middle East and Taiwan.

趙先生都是做他的生意,很快的幾年 就變成富翁,事業如日中天時,有好幾個貨櫃從中東運往台灣運往世界各地,
Mr Zhao became a millionaire in just a few years. One time there were several containers of goods being shipped from the Middle East to Taiwan and then to other parts of the world.

突然中東發生兩伊戰爭,讓他所有 貨物運不出來,全部報銷他的事業就這樣一敗塗地.
Unfortunately, wars broke out in the Middle East, his goods were stuck and could not be shipped out. This destroyed his entire business fortune.

Later he was even in jail. Upon his release, he went to China to try his luck. Once again because of his ability and after spending more than 10 years in the planning,

籌畫一個主題樂園, 以中華文化為背景,跟大陸官方商業人士建立很好的關係人脈,
he was about to start a theme park based on Chinese culture. He was well connected with Chinese government officials and influential businessmen.

He signed a ten billion dollars contract with the world largest bank to begin work on the theme park.

A month before the contract was due to be signed, Lehman Brothers Company, the investor suddenly and unexpectedly became bankrupt.

He had picked the wrong investor. He went back to Taiwan empty handed. This is an example of Karma that cannot be resisted or defy.

Between the Middle East wars and the collapse of the Lehman Brothers, Mr Zhao, smart and able as he was, was completely unable to overcome and escape from his bad Karma.

我們面對業力怎麼辦呢? 另外有一位王小姐,能力就沒像趙先生那麼強,
So what is the lesson and what do we do when we are facing with Karma? There was another case with a Miss Wang.

She inherited her father’s business in international trading. She wasn’t as capable as Mr Zhao.

Miss Wang was dealing in boutique products. Once she had a few hundred million dollars worth of products in two containers to be shipped to Hong Kong.

During the journey, the containers were robbed by pirates. All her company cheques bounced and there was a danger of her company collapsing due to this incident.

但因為她是道親,但她當時是新道親, 只有求道也不當一回事.
This was another example of Karma in action. The difference here is that Miss Wang had asked to receive Tao just earlier and did not take Tao seriously.

跑去問她的點傳師,點傳師跟她講: 業力現前,只有一個辦法可以消除,叫做愿力,
She went to ask and seek advice from her Tao transmitting master who told her :“you are currently facing your Karma, the only way to combat this is to make some serious vows to receive power from these vows.

This was something Mr Zhao did not have . You must pledge good vows, perform good deeds”. She asked further: “what kind of vows should I be making ?”

點傳師就跟她講:第一立清口吃素, 她就開始吃素,但是還沒有立愿
The master replied: “ you must first make a vow to be a vegetarian for the rest of your life and never break it”.She began to be a vegetarian but never took a vow.

“Secondly,you must set up a temple at home, thirdly you must begin to awaken people and bring them to temple to receive Tao”.

She agreed to take a vow to be just a vegetarian for now, and also bring 60 people to the temple to receive Tao. She started to speak to her friends and business associates and humbly ask them for assistance.

She ended up with more than 100 people who came forward to receive Tao.Suddenly she received some good news. Her two containers had been found and taken back from the pirates.

被海上公安警察搶回來,照慣例被搶後應該馬上分小船,早就全賣光了, 等你抓到只剩一個空殼,
In normal situation, these two containers should have been loaded to smaller ships, and the contents sold and only empty containers would remain.

But in this case, none of the contents was missing. This is an example where the power of Vows can defeat or overcome the power of Karma.


面對業力怎麼辦呢? 愿力就可以消除
When we are faced with the power of Karma, what should we do ? The power of Vows can eliminate this .Pledge to :

一、清口吃素。 二、設佛堂。三、渡人。四、行功了愿
1- Become a lifelong vegetarian. 2- Set up a holy temple at home. 3- Awakening and bring people to the temple to receive Tao. 4- Perform your meritorious service and fulfill your vows.


厚德大帝慈語: 一、學道必須自知自覺,若反之, 是自糊塗也。
Words of wisdom by Senior Grand Master Kao. 1- In Tao cultivation we must have self knowledge and awareness. The opposite to this is a confused mind.

二、慎獨是良心良知的不昧, 時刻要降伏、管制人心的浮動與沾染。
2 – Acting and thinking with care when alone is a way to ensure our conscience and intuitive knowledge are not hidden or concealed. Always behave subdue, manage your ever fluctuating and easily tainted heart.
