Lesson 15: A BLIND MAN LEADING THE BLIND (NGƯỜI MÙ DẪN DẮT MỘT NGƯỜI MÙ)

Contemplation on “Fourteen Grievous Failures of a Buddhist Practitioner”  Lesson 15: A BLIND MAN LEADING THE BLIND Imagine a blind man who leads another and what will happen? Needless to say, anyone can see the consequence! Should their heart be touched at this sight? Master Gampopa, with his boundless benevolence, witnessing over-enthusiastic practitioners trying to teach others the Buddha’s Dharma, has raised alarm over this danger, saying “To attempt to explain to others doctrines which one hath not completely mastered oneself is to be like a blind man leading the blind; and this is a grievous failure”. Master Gampopa (Thánh giả Gampopa) A famous quote says:” Enthusiasm without wisdom results in disaster.” Likewise, a practitioner who yet experiences spiritual reality, i.e little practices to go through without a clear result, but wants to teach others might bring “more harm than good” (the good is not enough to compensate for the harm).
