People like us are half like dharma people – half not dharma people

We are not really being Dharma practitioners, but at the same time, we try to be Dharma practitioners, though we don’t really follow [Dharma] correctly. And we are still lost, still under the control of non-Buddhist thoughts that’s not in accordance with Dharma. It is opposite to the Dharma. Like us, most people who are following the Buddha and the Buddha’s path, are not following it in a correct and completely profound way. It’s not what we want, but still, we are not able to follow correctly because of lack of understanding and many conditions to be really Dharma practitioners. Therefore, people like us are half like Dharma people – half not Dharma people. We need a lot [of Dharma practice]. Dharma is very necessary for people like us. Hence, we will talk about the necessity of Dharma for this world, known as followers of Dharma.
