(Teachings in WPG 2009)
Dear WPG participants,
According to the Avatamsaka Sutra, the Bodhisattva Path is so vast and immeasurable, that the Buddha had to divide it up into 42 cultivation segments. From the lowest to the highest level, so as to be sensibly absorbed step by step; and the cultivation can be resolutely progressed segment by segment. The principal essence in one’s cultivating path is to execute the 10 paramitas (generosity; discipline or moral conduct; patience; diligence; concentration; transcendental wisdom; expediency; aspiration power; strength; and premordial wisdom}. However, for the common people of this era, like us, how should we cultivate? Especially when we are going to attend the WPG, the convention of loving-kindness, of Kuan Shr Yin compassion.
