Master’s determination is unshakable to launch His mission despite all the odds: many among masses did not understand Him, thus they tended to ridicule rather than believing in His teachings and, at the same time, the harassment by colonial authorities which became the more anxious to isolate Him, the greater His influence grew. Part of his rationale for the mission is also His willingness to return His debts to those who had, for His previous lives, provided for Him what was necessary for His self-cultivation, including His kinship.
In His Buddhist perception, not only humans suffer from eight fundamental categories of physical and mental displeasure (dukkha), but also from a host of other stressors, ecosystem degration, climatic change, political turmoil, social upheavals, world wars, economic depression. Even though these external events do not always adversely affect everyone at the same time, they sometimes impact the activities of the whole humankind at different times and places, such as pandemic, as has, in recent months, spread far and wide over the globe and infected over nine millions and killed nearly half a million, and still threaten to go on, a phenomenon which no one had expected would have occurred earlier this year. These external stressors are called ‘Five Impurities’ (vi:Ngũ Trược).
Lord Master stressed the law of causility would not leave anyone alone once they act one way or the other in their life which unavoidably creates a certain kind of karma (negative or positive consequence) for them. Therefore, He encourages people to carefully weigh the consequences of their action, even their thought. They should remember that there is a spiritual realm ever watching over the human world, as it is superior in any aspect of existence. Thus Lord Master always reminds people of the mystical intervention of this realm into human activities, neutrally and impartially arbitrating their disputes. Thus He always refers to the presence of an divine realm, the ideal abode for any human who may qualify by following His teachings that enable them to reach it. Others who don’t trust Him might face the big trouble when a cyclic cataclysm occurs as it has been predestinated.
He proposes a few ways for humans to avoid this tragedy.
First, they must diligently follow the warning of the Supreme Holiness, including Buddha, Saints, Fairies and other deities in that they need to repent and do all good things. They must be aware of the obligations of humans to repay the debts of gratitude to their ancestors and country.
Second, they must learn how to cultivate such virtues as a devout Buddhist, working hard to cut off their worldly clingings. Not only that, they must persistently and thoroughly consider the teachings which He said contain many important points where they could understand how the heavenly machine operates and what they may expect thereform. In order to be efficient as a Buddhist practicer, they need to wipe out the smog of greed, ignorance, and ire, of their mind, so that they grow in wisdom. They need to distinguish between the faked and truthfull ways of practice so that they won’t waste their lives following the path which the Patriarch Buddha has exerted Himself to seek out for humans.
As in many of His poems, until humanity has one House, one Father, they still suffer a lot from disharmony and discord which would lead to wars and worse sufferings.
