A Path to True Happiness

The teachings of venerable Master Chin Kung.
1.Buddhism is the most profound and wholesome education directed by the Buddha toward all people.
2.The content in Buddha Shakyamuni’s forty-nine years of teaching describes the true reality of life and the universe. Life refers to oneself, universe refers to our living environment.
3.Those who possess a complete and proper understanding of life and the universe are called Buddhas or Bodhisattvas. Those who lack the understanding are called ordinary people.
4.Cultivation is changing the way we think, speak, and act toward people and matters from an erroneous way to a proper way.
5.The guideline for cultivation is understanding and awakening, proper views and purity. Understanding and awakening is to be without delusion, proper views is without deviation, and purity is without pollution. This can be achieved by practicing the Three Learnings of self-discipline, concentration, and wisdom.
6.The Three Conditions are the foundation of cultivation and study. When interacting with people, accord with the Six Harmonies and when interacting with society, practice the Six Principles. Follow the ten lessons taught by Samantabhadra Bodhisattva and dedicate one’s mind to everlasting purity and brightness. These complete the purpose of the Buddha’s teachings.
