– 四十二章经: 第五章
The Buddha said,
‘If a person has many misgivings, yet not personally repenting, to instantly cease that mind, transgressions will come to engulf oneself, like water returning to the sea, gradually becoming deeper and broader.
If a person has misgivings, personally understands and knows their wrong, corrects the evil and practises good, the transgressions will naturally be eradicated, like a sick person getting to sweat, gradually reducing seriousness of the sickness.’
