4.6. On a Lesson about Energy

Ven. Master Hua    

 

Today I went to look in on the disciple who is fasting. He was so hungry that he was lying down. He didnít move when I went in, but when I started to leave he turned his head. I asked him how he was, and he said he had no energy. I told him, ďThatís the very best. If you donít have any energy, then you wonít get angry. Thereís nothing better than starving your anger away. This is where you have to practice patience. Our anger is supported by our energy. If youíre so hungry that you canít even move, then when someone scolds you you wonít realize it. You wonít have the strength to fight.Ē
