三宝或三饱?Triple Gem or Three Fulfil?


三宝(梵文:त्रिरत्न / रत्नत्रय triratna / ratna-traya),指佛宝、法宝和僧宝,是佛教的最基本信仰教义,即佛教的核心和基础。

The Three Jewels, also called the Three Treasures, Three Refuges, Precious Triad, or most commonly the Triple Gem Pali: Tiratana, Sanskrit: त्रिरत्न (triratna), are the three things that Buddhiststake refuge in, and look toward for guidance, in the process known as taking refuge.

The Three Jewels are:
Buddha  Sanskrit, Pali: The Enlightened or Awakened One; Chinese: 佛陀, Fótuó, Korean: 불, Japanese:仏, Butsu, Standard Tibetan: sangs-rgyas, Mongolian: burqanDepending on one's interpretation, it can mean the historical Buddha (Siddharta) or the Buddha nature — the potential for highest spiritual achievement that exists within all beings;

Dharma  Sanskrit: The Teaching; Pali: Dhamma, Chinese: 法, Fǎ, Korean: 법, Japanese: 法, Hō, Standard Tibetan: chos, Mongolian: nom 
The teachings of the Buddha, the path to Enlightenment.

Sangha  Sanskrit, Pali: The Community; Chinese: 僧, Sēng, Korean: 승, Japanese: 僧, Sō, Standard Tibetan: dge-'dun, Mongolian: quvara
The community of those who have attained enlightenment, who may help a practicing Buddhist to do the same. 
Also used more broadly to refer to the community of practicing Buddhists, or the community of Buddhist monks and nuns.

In a recent speech, GM Lu said that Reverend must not become a 三饱和尚 - Three Fulfil monk.
三饱- although sounds like 三宝 Triple Gem in Mandarin are very different in that 三饱 - 吃饱~Eat Fulfil;  睡饱~Sleep Fulfil;  玩饱!Play Fulfil!

Back in 2010, I remember a reverend referred to me as a 3-fulfil reverend!
He explained to me what he meant!

He sees me as one that has my fill of Food, Sleep and Play! :)

In one of his recent speech, GM Lu also mentioned a out of this world and a within this mortal world cultivator!

Now, Think!
When a person eats well and sleep well and appears to be "playing" or "having fun", doesn't this mean that this person is Healthy and Happy?

Buddha dharma teaches us to leave suffering and attain Happiness, right?

Now, go back and study the articles in this blog on the 5 Eyes - Human eye, Heavenly eye, Dharma eye, Wisdom eye, Buddha eye.

If you truly knows Tantrayana, does cultivation have any obvious and visible signs?
Or, does the cultivator needs to keep telling you that he/she is cultivating and effectively moving or mobilising energy to help others?
Or, does the cultivator needs to tell you that he/she is now negotiating with the spirits around and within you, to help you?

After careful thought, what kind of eyes does the reverend that labelled me as 3 Fulfil has, to give that pronouncement?

Can you truly see, read and understand Lotuschef?

Where do I eat, sleep and play?
