Cause and Effect have never been wrong


“ Knowing that requital spans three generations, you should realize that the words of sages and concerning Cause and Effect have never been wrong and that wealth and poverty, honor and disgrace, longevity and early death are all the results of our past actions—where is the discrepancy between cause and effect? A mirror reflects beauty and ugliness as they are. The wise know that it is the object before the mirror that should be changed while the dull and ignorant waste time and effort hating and resenting the image in the mirror! To bear adversity is to know your limitations. Only by not resenting heaven and earth can you succeed in life.” – Letters from Patriarch Yin Kuang, translated by Master Thich Thien Tam
