The mind is pretty complicated and the mind desires for this and that, too many things, not really seeking for Dharma of liberation

“Bless me so that my mind will turn to the Dharma!” It’s very difficult for our mind to turn to the Dharma. Even though we think we are Dharma practitioners and have some belief in Dharma but our mind is in a different place mostly, not following the Dharma. Maybe it’s in the emotional world, not in the Dharma world. The Dharma world is very peaceful and very pure. Our mind is not very pure. The mind is pretty complicated and the mind desires for this and that, too many things, not really seeking for Dharma much. But what we need to do is to follow the Dharma, turn to the Dharma. Therefore, we need to pray to the Guru: “Bless me so that my dharma will go on the path.” Even though we [try to] do Dharma activities, we try to have some good actions and the virtuous things but our dharma is not on the path, mostly our dharma is probably for something else. Maybe for better health, better wealth, better friendship [laugh]. Yeah. It happens a lot! And for longevity, for it to be richer, more famous, more powerful. Those [things are] not a really Dharma. But our dharmas could get involved in this [kind of] “Dharma” very easily. And in fact for a lot of people [their] dharma is not on the path. That’s a big problem. That’s a wrong path. For a Dharma practitioner, this is a very big mistake and a very big lose. Therefore, we need to pray to the Guru: “Bless me so that my dharmas will go on the path.”
