[17:29, 3/28/2019] lotuschef: I have this book and read it but didn't see anything significant in the serving guru statements
AA: the bahasa version was published in 2018, and i just bought it last week
lotuschef: I think .... gifted me this book
can't remember exactly, but I have this book cos I recognised the book cover
: GM Lu's words :-
[不須另求所修 no need to seek other methods of cultivation.]
: serving guru with body speech mind is cultivating thus no need to seek other methods of cultivation - becomes serving guru so can get guru's merits even if no leisure to cultivate!
AA: even if no leisure to cultivate! > the contradictory part
lotuschef: GM Lu reminiscing fondly upon Arya Atisha. - my title
: reminiscence is that of GM Lu, fond remembrance of Atisha's life
: atisha with dromtonba n atisha with serlingpa
lotuschef: Dharmakīrtiśrī (Tibetan: Serlingpa; Wylie: gser gling pa; Chinese: 金州大師, literally "from Suvarnadvīpa"), also known as Kulānta and Suvarṇadvipi Dharmakīrti, ...
: ya. and also the don't need to cultivate but still get merits from Gm's
: they are so use to using GM n his possessions, like $$$
: well? don't need to cultivate - breach precepts n get ousted, and SM get possessed by spirits
lotuschef: life is truly fun with all these ignorants around. seeing how they dig their own graves n jumping from cliff
: ppl like NN n SM - really all they did eventually come to nothingness
AA: all these years returning to futile state
: he didn't learn wisely n start out to bully me thinking I am easy prey
: I slowly led him around to expose his own short comings to the world
AA: uprooting the darn big purple sweet potato 😄
lotuschef: that was together with lian ling - lotus spirit my classmate in fashi training class
: so we dug out one darn big purple sweet potato - that is NN
the other GM dug out
: Remember that Only an Authentic Buddha can sit on TBS' dharma throne! - this is to butt NN
: I am real evil?
: serve or kill one's guru - hahaha
: same tone
: ya. in chinese they sound the same n the pinyin too is - shi shi
lotuschef: so I poke fun at them again!
: its a pretty straight forward article but misinterpreted by ignorants
: At this moment, Lord Atisha said, “If it is possible to serve the Guru with pure body, speech, and mind, then no other forms of cultivation are needed”
: it actually mean - as one is already cultivating "serving guru" with pure body speech & mind, then no need to seek other methods or forms of cultivation
So whoever read Chapter 47 of GM's Book 231, and concocted the "serving guru win over those that are top cultivators, even if no leisure to cultivate also can get Guru's merits, very great", to be published as an announcement in TBS officail site, do not put blame on anyone but do the necessary to correct this error!
Please practice Buddha's 5 wisdoms always and not be misled into Mara's embrace!
