WERE WE BORN BY THE PARENTS? ( Cha mẹ sinh ra ta?)

WERE WE BORN BY THE PARENTS?

An angry response from the public opinion regarding the grown-ups who are now having rich and successful lives abandoned their parents in nursing homes. Besides, there are many young girls from the Western region of Vietnam were recruited (by the marriage broker) to marry Korean husbands which pushed them into the tragic of  sexual slavery. They did that in an attempt to change their lives and to complete the filial piety. After the marriage, most of them were treated like servants. In those cases, there were grievous women who chose to throw herself and her kids off a building to find an end, others tried to suffer because of their children. Those cases have created a wave of opposition in the public opinion. It is painful to read about such news about young wives being beaten fiercely, being abandoned or even being burnt by their husbands in Taiwan, Korea.

  1. Close filial piety: Take care of the parents when they are getting old and sick.

How should we evaluate the matter? The children were too thoughtless, the parents were too repressive, and these two types of human beings shared a common virus named “SELFISH” (self-centered), that’s why they had to bear bad consequences. However, is it hard to understand why it goes without saying that unfilial children are usually judged while inhumane behaviors from the parents are just being ignored? It is because of the traditional thought that the parents are the one who gave birth to the children, nurturing them (which is different to “rearing/educating”); therefore, the children have to devote their lives to parents even though they knew the purpose was selfish.

when the mother would free her daughter from the burden of making money for her

In Song Nguyen Tantra House, there are several students sharing the same situation of the above mentioned children. They work as workers, or some other positions. On a monthly basis, the mother will receive an amount of money extracted from their salary to spend on playing cards. There is a case in which the person exhausts herself all the weekdays to teach English, but the mother is the one in charge of collecting tuition fees and she will accordingly pay a small portion to the daughter just to fill the gas tank. My student is tall, thin and looks so poor. It is hard to say for how long she could stand that situation; and when the mother would free her daughter from the burden of making money for her. It is more unfair that all other family members have taken it for granted and enjoyed their leisure with her income.

If there were a societal questionnaire, I am sure the result would reveal that type of parents’ nature as unconscionable and selfish human beings. The children had no choice but to suffer because of being… filial! They do not even understand the basics of filial piety in Confucianism, not to mention about the noble filial piety in Buddhism.

Confucius taught that there are five constant virtues including “benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom and fidelity” (仁,义, 理, 智, 信). Regarding filial piety, he once said “If the father behaves fiercely, he does not have the right to blame the unfilial child”. The Buddha taught about the parentalresponsibilities in the Madhyamàgama sutra as following:

  1. Provide the basic requirements for the child to survive
  2. Build up genuinely and authentically career for the child
  3. Find a good person for him/her to get married
  4. Grant the property to the well-deserved child

What about the children’s obligation?

  1. Enrich the property to support the parents
  2. Support family matters in regard to his/her obligation
  3. Voluntarily provide things at the parents’ will
  4. Not doing anything at self-willed intention, but ask for the parents’ permission
  5. Offer personal property to the parents

The above conditions are regulated in those ideal families in which the children are dutiful and the parents are benevolent; of course they must be applied properly in terms of the country,  nationality, and the current age. However, it is necessary to emphasize on the bilateral duties from both the parents and the children, in both reversible ways.

However, it is necessary to emphasize on the bilateral duties from both the parents and the children, in both reversible ways.

Most of the parents cling to one and only logic to remind their children about completing the filial duties: they are the ones who granted lives to their children. And the children who cling blindly to filial duties retained in their mind: they were born into this life because of the parents; without the parents, how are they supposed to exist?

Actually this traditional conception must be reconsidered. According to Buddhist teaching, beings are born into the human being realm because they had completed five precepts in their previous lives (prohibition of killing, prohibition of theft, prohibition of sexual misconduct, prohibition of unwise/unskillful speech, prohibition of intoxication). In the Sutra of Heroic One, the Buddha confirmed that after death, if the thoughts and passions are in equal proportions, one will be reborn in the realm of human beings. Passion means turbid vibe, thought means pure vibe. In other words, the proportions of negative and positive sensations in near-death karma will decide the upcoming reborn realm.

Hence, we are the ones deciding our own realms, not the parents. Therefore, the Buddha once taught that the true Buddhists acknowledge three periods (past, present and future) firmly as if they are holding them in their hands. If it is a must to have parents for any beings to be born, then how should we explain the case of Dolly, the first mammal cloned from an adult cell? How about those babies who were born by vitro fertilization method? In lower realms such as Hell, those beings don’t have parents, they were reborn there because of their evil karma. Furthermore, in the Heaven of form realm (Rupaloka), there is only one type of being, do they need parents? In the heaven of formlessness realm (Arupaloka), the beings are possessed entirely of mind but they have no physical form, do they have parents? All the mentioned beings do not have parents to be born into their realms, but it was based on their good or bad karma that decide their rebirth realms.

Dolly, a symbol of the science development in the XXI century.

Parents are part of our causative influences to be reborn into the realm of human beings. It is said that those beings that shared 1000 common lives together will become husband and wife; likewise, sharing 500 lives together will become parents and children, and sharing 100 lives will become brother/sisterhood. It is similar that a chemical reaction needs a catalysis. In those reactions, the chemicals play a critical role, while the catalysis plays a supporting role. The reaction of the reborn process works similarly.

Consequently, keep in mind that we are the ones who decide where we are going to be reborn in our next lives. Once one keeps five precepts, in one way or another, he must be reborn into the human being realm, with or without parents. Because of the dependent origination, the relationship between parents and children in the current life could be good or bad;accordingly it could be illustrated as enemies or backers, in a natural association with the previous causes.

Therefore, it can be inferred that if the parents’ motives were selfish and inhumane, the children should not obey under the burden of filial piety duties; because human lives should be preciously used to practice Dharma in order to attain liberation. Or else they may fall into the “wrong filial piety” which is contradictory to the wisdom priority from Buddhist teachings. If a child blindly obeyed the parents and followed the tradition even when he had already known it, he indirectly violated the Buddha’s teachings. To those parents who have been always asking and forcing their children into the frame of paying filial piety, take one moment to think what is the real reason for giving birth to a child? Of course that is because of ignorance, in which the factor weighing the most is “satisfaction of desires”, it means to satisfy the sexual pleasures. One reaps what one sows due to the causality. If the “cause” is “sexuality”, the “effect” must be equivalent, do not blame the children to burden your lives. Do the parents not acknowledge the consequences before sowing that seed? Of course they do, they even imagined the overwhelming happiness of seeing their babies babbling, and just in case they end up being separated in the future, they expected they still have the joy of having children.  Making such inferences that originated from self-benefit is considered as selfishness. So stop considering yourself as a noble one, who gave a great birth event to your child!

There is one popular Chinese saying that said “There are three ways to be unfilial; having no sons is the worst” (不 孝 有 三 無 後 為 大) which was just an encouraging slogan of Chinese people. Vietnamese people thereafter supported the idea by one saying “God never sends mouths but he sends meat”. If “having no sons is the worst” concept is correct, why did the Buddha prohibit monks from having a married life, prohibit them from being adopted or adopting children?

Illustrated picture shows the fact that many Vietnamese girls were brokered to marry Korean men. Source: Tuoi Tre.

In the current age, our nation is now suffering from a dense population, the government has been striving to limit the population by applying different campaigns such as family planning. Then choosing not to have babies or to maintain a small family is an illustration of patriotism. Someone worries that such thoughts may end up not producing offspring to the nation, it is like an earthworm worries over running out of soil on earth.

On the contrary, the children must not be thoughtless and impatient to their parents who are actually sharing a predestined affinity with them, nurturing them, and being the closet beings to them. Therefore, they should complete 4 types of filial piety as followings:

  1. Close filial piety: Take care of the parents when they are getting old and sick.
  2. Far filial piety: Not only paying filial piety duty to their own parents but also their friends and others’ parents.
  3. Small filial piety: Leading a good life, not engaging in issues that disgrace the parents’ names and give bad influences to the family.
  4. Great filial piety: Recommend their parents to practice Dharma to be well-prepared for their next lives.

All the disciples, students at Song Nguyen Tantra House have been well-equipped with knowledge of filial piety as above. It should be done the more the better among these four types. Each individual follows Buddha’ teachings and practices Dharma diligently on a daily, hourly basis then dedicates to all sentient beings including their own parents who may be alive or dead. The practice method of reciting mantra with footsteps or generating Bodhicitta through 16 daily activities are ways of paying frequent filial piety, without having to wait until one event named Ullambana Basins as the wrong tradition.

Each individual follows Buddha’ teachings and practice Dharma diligently on a daily, hourly basis then dedicate to all sentient beings including their own parents who may be alive or dead.

The parents should reflect on their own causality and stop using filialness as a trick to satisfy personal purposes! Keep in mind, you reap what you sow even if you are parents. The students, disciples in Song Nguyen Tantra House should obey four types of filial piety that Venerable master Hsuan Hua had taught, in which the most important is Great filial piety. You absolutely must not engage in wrong filial piety which will give bad influences to your path to liberation.

    Dear Holy Guru,
    I have read this article.
    The parents give birth to their children, it is thanks to 500 lives together in the previous life. But, the children have to keep in mind that they don’t need to have filial responsibility with their parents if their parents only give birth to them due to “selfish”.
    With me, my parents not only give birth to me, but also is first teacher, who taught me how to exist, how to behave with other people, they taught me having to good and responsible person. So that I will be filial to my parents voluntarily, complete 4 types of filial piety as Guru has determined: Close filial piety, far filial piety, small filial piety, great filial piety.
    Thank you Guru!
    May Guru has good health and longevity for the sake of all sentient beings.

    Dear holy Guru,
    Thank you so much for writing this valuable article. I have learnt that the karma is the cause for us to be reborn as a human being. Our parents are only the factor depening to our karma. If my karma is good, i will be reborn in a rich family, if my karma is bad, I will be reborn in a poor family. Our parents are not the ones who decide our birth. Which reams we will be reborn is due to our actions of body, speech and mind, our parents can not help us. Only the true Guru who guides us to practice the path of enlightenment can help us be reborn in high realms or in the Pure Land.
    In the circle of birth and death, we have good chances to meet the true Gurus and follow their teaching to accumulate wisdom and merit, which bring us the better next life or lead us to be free from sufferings of Samsara world. Therefore, the gratitude we should keep in mind and remember to repay this big debt is to repay Guru’s kindness as the Buddha has taught in sutras. In addition, as a true Buddhist, we should repay to the debt of parents by supporting them to practice dharma and follow the teaching of Guru abd Buddha to end the circle of sufferings.
    Thank you so much for your teaching.
    May you have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha nature.
    May covid 19 pandemic come to an end soon.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    Reading this article with many sad stories make me reconsider parents-children relationship. The idea that without our parents we won’t have this human life is wrong and against the law of Cause and Effect. We’re human for keeping precepts.

    It’s a well-known fact that, in poorer countries, people have more kids because children are needed to work and to provide care for their parents in old age. In richer country, people have less kids and one of the reasons is because they have less of such needs. I believe that deep down we’re selfish as human beings, even parents. And giving birth alone is nothing virtuous.

    But more importantly, I learnt that there are virtuous parents and virtuous children. That is when the family follow the words of the Buddha. For children, fulfilling “Great filial piety” means “recommending their parents to practice Dharma to be well-prepared for their next lives.” This will be one of my goals when learning the Dharma.

    I’m grateful for this lesson by the Guru because it has liberated me from the wrong tradition views about filial piety in thousands of years. May the Guru live long and have good health for the benefit of all sentient beings. May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature. May the Covid-19 pandemic will soon be over.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear holy Guru,
    I am delighted to read this article as it helps me to understand the true relationship between the children and the parent according to the right orbit of Dharma.
    Through this article, I understand that we are the ones who decide where we are going to be reborn in next lives. According to Buddhist teaching, one being is born into human beings because he/she had completed five precepts in previous lifes. Thus, the saying which stated that: the children were born into this life because of parents is wrong. The parents are part of causative influence to be reborn into the realm of human beings, just like a chemical reaction needs a catalysis (the chemicals play a critical role, while the catalysis plays a supporting role). Through your teaching in this article, I understand that the children should not obey any selfish or inhumane requests of the parents under the burden of filial piety duties. Instead, I should focus on 4 types of filial piety: (1) Close filial piety; (2) Far filial piety; (3) Small filial piety; (4) Great filial piety. From that point, by practicing Dharma diligently and following Buddha’s teaching, I could dedicate the merit to all sentient beings, including the parents who may be alive or dead.
    Thank you holy Guru for this important lesson. May Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May the epidemic of Covid-19 come to end soon.
    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    Dear Guru.
    I have read this article already.
    Thank you, Guru, for the compassionate and gracious commentary that equipped us with the knowledge of filial piety according to the Buddhist opinion. Through the article helps me understand that We are being born as a human by keeping the five precepts of Buddhism.
    Our parents are only factors that depend on the good or bad karma that we were born into in a rich or poor family. It is said that 1000 lives were married, 500 lives were parents, 100 lives were brothers, so Parents cannot be the one who decides our birth. However, to best show filial piety to parents, follow the Buddha’s teachings:
    1 Close filial piety: Take care of the parents when they are getting old and sick.
    2 Far filial piety: Not only paying filial piety duty to their own parents but also their friends and others ’parents.
    3 Small filial piety: Leading a good life, not engaging in issues that disgrace the parents’ names and give bad influences to the family.
    4 Great filial piety: Recommend their parents to practice Dharma to be well-prepared for their next lives.
    I pray for the health and longevity of the Guru for the sake of all sentient beings.
    I pray for all beings to attain the state of enlightenment.
    Pray for the coronary disease to be eradicated early.

    Dear Guru

    Everyday, through the media, I am witnessing painful cases such as parents force their daughters to marry foreigners against their will; children have to work hard to pay for gambling debt of parents; or parents beat their child to death, etc. However, few dare to break the bondage due to long time tradition and social prejudice. I am thankful for your explanation about the origination of our birth, about our precious human body. Your teaching and quotes from Buddhist sutras help us know more clearly about where we come from. Now I know that there are four types of filial piety: close filial piety, far filial piety, small filial piety and great filial piety. Among which “great filial piety” is the highest and noblest way to pay the debt of gratitude towards our parents. Now I understand and can apply Dharma in carrying out filial duty towards our parents in this life and previous ones. I will keep in mind your teaching:” Each individual follows Buddha’s teachings and practices Dharma diligently on a daily, hourly basis, then dedicates to all sentient beings including their parents who may be alive or dead.” May Guru, Yidam, Dakini bless us to complete our filial duty in the right orbit of Dharma.

    Thanks Mat Tu for your wonderful translation. May all your righteous wishes soon be fulfilled.

    Dear Guru,
    I am delighted to read this article.
    I am thankful for your sharing the valuable article. Through it, I understand that all human when we born in Sara world with their individual karma. Depend on good karma or bad karma made them reborn on the rich family or poor family. Depend on after death, if the thoughts and passions are in equal proportions, one will be reborn in the realm of human beings (Sutra of Heroic One). Through Guru teaching and quotes from Buddhist sutras make me know that some the bilateral duties from both the parents and the children, in both reversible ways, so that the children should not obey any selfish or inhumane requests of the parents under burden of filial piety duties. We only need to focus four types of filial piety: (1) Close filial piety, (2) Far filial piety, (3) Small filial piety, (4) Great filial piety. Thereby, I felt the lucky to precious chance to follow Guru in the life. Because Guru shows and teach us the best way to repay filial piety to parent by practicing and applying Dharma through Pure Mind Yoga based on the dharma Buddha according to “practices dharma diligently on a daily, hourly basic, then dedicates to all sentient beings including their parents who may be alive or dead”. I am grateful Guru.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    Thank you so much for this enlightened article. Through the article, my eyes have opened and I have seen the real relationship between parents and children. Parents don’t decide for our birth, we were born as human beings because of keeping five precepts in previous life. The wrong traditional views about filial piety has made the thousands of people live a horrible life, many people have to work very hard or even sacrifice their life just because of their parents’s benefit and selfishness. This article not only recuse many lives out there who are gonna put their life in danger to fulfill their ridiculous parents’s needs but also gave us the right view about filial piety. These are four types of filial piety: close filial piety (1), far filial piety (2), small filial piety (3) and great filial piety (4). Among them, the great filial piety is the greatest and highest way to repay gratitude toward our parents. Furthermore, I have understood “each individual follows Buddha’s teachings and practices Dharma diligently on a daily, hourly basic, then dedicated to all sentient beings including their parents who maybe alive or death”. Thus, I happily praise and treasure the marvelous, precious and beneficial Guru’s practice methods and I would like to express my gratitude to Guru because you always encourage and remind us practice Dharma. Thanks to Guru for giving us this valuable lesson so we distinguish the wrong view and stay away from it.

    May Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    May the Covid-19 pandemic will end soon.
