The Misfortune of Buddhism



An Instructional talk given by Venerable Master Hua



Right up to their death, they are still practicing the Secret School:
Secret! Secret! Secret! all the way to the hells!





As to the incident I just mentioned, if you choose not to believe it, that's okay, but what I am about to tell you now, you must absolutely believe.

Why do people study the Buddhadharma? Their initial motivation is none other than to leave suffering and attain bliss, and to end birth and death. It is unfortunate that some people want to evade confusion, but get immersed right in confusion!

In Buddhism, the original intent is to get out of the cycle of birth and death. However, if people are not careful, they easily fall into a maze of confusion. Not utilizing the Dharma-selecting Vision, one becomes bewitched by deviant knowledge and views, and end up doing unspeakable things.

For example, one starts out wanting to leave suffering and attain bliss, but loses one's footing on the way and ends up boring right into the hells. There's something even worse than that which is”Šthe dharma of "paired cultivation" taught in the Secret School, in which they recite certain mantras where both men and women cultivate the "Dhyana of Delight" together. They say, "Nothing can beat this! Not only can we satisfy our desire, we can also become Buddhas in this very life!" How can it be that easy to attain Buddhahood! Without cutting off desire, it is absolutely impossible to become a Buddha. There's no such thing in the world.

Nowadays, many people are greedy for lucky breaks and short cuts. When they hear about some occult dharma, they are bewitched and fall into the net of demons. Right up to their death, they are still practicing the Secret School ---Secret! Secret! Secret! all the way to the hells!
