have we learnt from this movie? The first thing is humility -- do not show-off
our "kung-fu" to everyone. The second thing is -- we have to fight if it is
necessary. (Laughter) Yes! If it is beyond the limit of tolerance! Some people
just won't change for the better if you don't beat them up; they just can't
learn the lesson. Therefore, beat or scold them if it is really necessary.
To be a good person doesn't mean talking sweet words all the time. No, no!
When you see someone killing people right in front of your nose, would you
still look on with folded arms and say: "I am a prize-boxer and I am not supposed
to combat casually."
doesn't mean stupidity. Do what you should do, and handle things according
to the situation. Only then are you a real spiritual practitioner instead
of a rigid idiot.
Lion's father told him, "I am brave when I should be, and only this is true
bravery!" Similarly, when we are new to spiritual practice, we are always
very anxious. Our spiritual cultivation is still not stable and our meditation
is not very good, yet we go out and boast. People feel uncomfortable with
us. This is not the way to preach the Truth. It is more important to first
purify our actions, speech and thoughts, and fulfill our obligations. When
we have perfected ourselves spiritually, people will follow us even if we
don't say anything. We might be doing the right thing, but if it is done at
the wrong time and in the wrong place, then it is futile. This is where we
should use our wisdom. If you think you are very clever and do everything
in a rush, then it is not good!
never look at a pig or a ham the same way after watching this movie.
