Preface: this is a story of a bodhisattva and a boy.
We can see the compassion and magnificence of the bodhisattva.
[PureInsight.org] During the
Sui dynasty, a Buddhist disciple cultivated diligently with his master
in the mountains. Once he dropped his shoes without noticing in a
mountain creek. After three or four days, a boy about 18 or 19
years old came to the cave where they did their meditation. The
boy had the shoes the Buddhist disciple had lost.
The boy said, "Are these your shoes? I was herding on the grass
on the mountain the day before yesterday. I saw this pair of
shoes. My grandpa told me that there were two wise men
cultivating Buddhahood on the mountain. Maybe they are yours."
The Buddhist disciple saw the boy's kindness. He said: "you
have a kind heart. In the future, when I consummate, I will take
you with me so you can be with me in Heaven. OK?"
This Buddhist disciple eventually obtained bodhisattva fruit status and
became a famous bodhisattva. The bodhisattva and the boy enjoyed
their lives in Heaven. However, after all, the boy hadn't gone
through solid cultivation. He made a mistake in Heaven. He didn't
follow the bodhisattva's instructions. He didn't store the
bodhisattva's instruments in the correct place. Because of this,
the boy was cast down to the human world.
This bodhisattva was very compassionate. He came down to the
human world in person to help the boy to pay off his karma and get back
to Heaven soon.
In the human world, the bodhisattva sometimes reincarnated as the boy's
mother. Sometimes he reincarnated as the boy's brother to take
care of him.
After so many rounds of reincarnation, the boy doesn't believe in
cultivation, gods or Buddha. In this life, the bodhisattva was
born in a high-ranking official's home and educated by the evil Chinese
Communist Party's (CCP) indoctrination. However, her third eye is
open, and she can often see the other dimension.
The boy is her eldest son in this life. He is quite nice and
treats his mother well. However, he doesn't believe in the
gods. Whenever his old mother talks about the gods and Buddha, he
says that it's her delusion.
One day, my wife and I visited the family. As soon as I entered
the house, I knew the predestined relationship of the mother and
son. Later the mother and I had a conversation. The old
woman started telling us that her boy often labeled her
"superstitious." I told her and her son their predestined
relationship. The old woman was very touched and voluntarily quit
the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
In fact the family is quite well off in the society. However, the
key for a living being now is to get to know the truth of Dafa and get
rid of the evil CCP. On the other hand, no matter what the
surface reason for them to come to the human world is, haven't they
come for Dafa?
Cherish the opportunity! Do not miss it.
