Sūtra on Upāsaka Precepts, Vol. 1, Chapter 2

Bringing forth the Bodhi Mind

 

“Good sons! There are five things related to bringing forth the bodhi mind: (1) having wholesome friends, (2) eliminating aversion and malice, (3) following the teacher’s teachings, (4) developing compassion, and (5) practicing one’s faith diligently. However, there are five more things: (1) not seeing others’ faults, (2) not being discouraged despite seeing others’ faults, (3) not becoming arrogant after attaining wholesome dharmas, (4) not being jealous of others’ wholesome deeds, and (5) treating all sentient beings as one’s only children. Good sons! After bringing forth the bodhi mind, a wise person can destroy one’s negative karmas, etc. with the magnitude of Mount Sumeru.”

發菩提心品第二

 

【善男子!發菩提心有五事:一者親近善友,二者斷瞋恚心,三者隨師教誨,四者生憐愍心,五者勤修精進。復有五事:一者不見他過,二者雖見他過而心不悔,三者得善法已不生憍慢,四者見他善業不生妬心,五者觀諸眾生如一子想。善男子!有智之人發菩提心已,即能破壞惡業等果如須彌山。】
