Bird Nest Master
When Buddha looks at the world, he sees people who have
lost direction. These people are interested only in acquiring material
possessions and raising their social positions and have forgotten their
spiritual world, Li Tian. In this world, these people continue to reincarnate
and cannot return to Li Tian. As a result, Buddha sent two Buddha to
earth to save the spirits of these people. One of these Buddha was born
into the Bai family and was named Bai Le Tian. The second Buddha was
born into the Ma family and was named Ma Tian Zhang. Since these two
people were both Buddha, both were born into well-to-do families and
were very intelligent. They both passed their government examinations
and became high ranking officers.
Bai Le Tian was already eighty years old; his time on this planet was
very limited. If Ma Tian Zhang went back to earth as a human, it would
take years before he would be old enough to be able to talk to Bai Le
|see what was going on. He realized that the Bird Nest Master
was teaching Buddhism to the people. Bai Le Tian rode over to the tree
and asked the Bird Nest Master, "What is Tao?" The Bird Nest
Master told him, "Do only good deeds and don't do any bad."
Bai Le Tian said, "What is so special about that? Even a three year
old child can say that!" The Bird Nest Master said, "Yes, even
a three year old child can say this but an eighty year old man can not
follow this." Bai Le Tian said, "You live in such a high tree,
a very dangerous situation. What would you do if you fell down?"
The Bird Nest Master said, "Even though this tree is so high and
looks dangerous, all day there is the wind, sun, and moon that make each
day wonderful. My days are so enjoyable and relaxing, unlike your days.
Each day, you must accompany the emperor which is very much like being
with a tiger or a wolf. Any time, depending on the emperor's wishes, your
life may be in jeopardy. In addition, every morning you need to report
to the palace and you are busy from morning to night. All your life, you
are constantly busy. What do you gain? Now, as a high ranking officer,
no one dares to criticize you. Yet, behind your back there is much talking
going on. Although your family live and eat well, there must be many people
who dislike you. Despite all the things you have done, do you know how
history will remember you?"
Ma Tian Zhang's words woke up Bai Le Tian and made him realize that life constantly changes and what has passed cannot be changed. Bai Le Tian realized that when he passes away, his spirit will carry all the things, good and bad, that he did into his next life. As a result, he would enter the reincarnation cycle. Consequently, Bai Le Tian left his family and gave up his worldly possessions and went to practice Tao with the Bird Nest Master.
This is only a story. It is not important whether there was a Bird Nest Master or not. The importance of this story is "Are we Bai Le Tian or Ma Tian Zhang?" Have we forgotten our duties in this earth? All of us originally came from Li Tian and used to be Buddha. Then once we came to this earth, we became lost in all our material possessions. Now we are in the reincarnation cycle. In the Red Period, if we wanted to practice Tao, we had to leave our families. In order to be a monk, we had to go to a temple to practice Tao while at the same time, make sure that our family is cared for. Since not everyone had a solution, not everyone could easily practice Tao. Now it is the White Period and Tao is so accessible that we can practice it at home. We are so fortunate to be living in this period of time. Fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters can all practice Tao together at home. Husbands and wives can share one purpose and make their families harmonious. Isn't this what everyone would want in their families?
