Be Sincerely Diligent 勤精进



You [and] other Bhikṣus, if constantly diligent, [are] then [with] matters without difficulties. Therefore, you [and] others, should [be] constantly diligent. For example, like [a] small stream constantly flowing, [it is] then able [to] penetrate rock. If [the] minds [of] practitioners, [are] frequently lazy [and] abandon [practice], for example, like boring [for] fire, [with it] yet [to be] hot then resting, although desiring [to] obtain fire, fire [is] difficult to [be] obtained. [These] are named [as teachings on] diligence.
