An Important Mindset When Listening to Buddhism

Question:

Write the words of Master Rennyo in which he taught, “If you are listening to Buddhism with the attitude that you ought to gain some new information, you are not going to be saved. Become a person who can listen to the same thing again and again, as if you are hearing it for the first time.” Give the source too.



Answer:

Those who have attained true faith always listen again to the same topic in a Dharma-talk as if they are hearing it for the first time. People tend to want to hear something new or unusual, but no matter how many times we hear about the same topic, we must try to listen as if it is the first time we are hearing it.
