Two types of compassion 兩種慈悲心

‎|| Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's Knowledge Sheets ||

There are two types of compassion. One is the compassion of the wise, one is that of the ignorant.

An ignorant person's compassion is on the fruit of an action whereas a wise person's compassion is towards the non-availability of knowledge. Compassion for suffering shows ignorance. Suffering comes because of karma, and if you believe in karma, where is compassion? One reaps the fruit of one's actions.


If a judge has compassion for all the offenders then the jails will be empty. At the same time, are the judges cruel to the offenders? No; the judges' compassion is for the non-availability of knowledge, not for the suffering of the criminals. It is their karma.

Often people think compassion is an act, an action. Know that compassion is your very nature. Then you will see that karma and compassion are not contradictory but complement each other.

Suppose two people come to a hospital. One is suffering from starvation, the other is ill from overeating. What type of compassion should the doctor have towards each of them? This is a riddle for you to solve!

有兩種慈悲心。其一是有智慧的慈悲,另外一個則是無知的慈悲。

一個無知的人的慈悲心是在於一個行動的果實;而一個智者的慈悲是在於知識的缺乏這方面。對痛苦慈悲顯示了愚痴。痛苦的出現是因為業力,而如果你相信業力,慈悲會在哪裡?一個人的收穫是來自他的行動。

如果一個法官對所有的罪犯都慈悲的話,那麼監獄就會是空空的。同一時間,是否法官對罪犯殘忍了?不;法官的慈悲心是在於缺乏知識這方面,而不是罪犯的痛苦。這是他們的業力。

很多時候人們以為慈悲是個動作,一個行動。要知道慈悲是你的本性。那麼你就會看到業力和慈悲不是對立的而是互補的。

假設有兩個人來到醫院。一個是遭受飢荒,另一個則是因為暴飲暴食而痛苦。醫生應對他們抱有哪一種同情心?這是你需要去解答的謎題。
