Blessing

Blessing is luck or happiness that one person gains after he helps other persons

When someone helps others selflessly, they may be considered blessed because they often experience positive outcomes such as luck, happiness, or a sense of fulfillment. This can be seen as a form of divine or karmic reward for their kindness and goodwill towards others. The act of helping others can create a ripple effect, bringing blessings not only to the recipient but also to the person who initiated the act of kindness.

the outcome of our help decides the blessing we will earn. Among various types of help, the best is to help others believe in the law of Karma. The blessing we will achieve from it is so huge that we can enjoy not only in one life but also in countless lives. Because when people believe in the law of Karma, they dare not commit sin but strive to do good deeds, which help them achieve blessing that they can enjoy innumerable lives. So, how about our blessing? It is endless. Therefore, the merit of bringing the Dharma to others and helping them understand the law of Karma can help us achieve enlightenment and enjoy our blessing forever.

There was a person who asked the Buddha, “Dear Buddha, is there anyone who does not follow Buddhism but is still born in heaven?” The Buddha replied, “Hey Brahmin, during the past ninety-one lives I have not seen anyone who did not follow Buddhism but was still born in heaven, except one person because he often preached the law of Karma to others.” You see, the Buddha also affirmed that the blessing earning from helping others understand the law of Karma is extremely large.

We should obey the Buddha’s teachings, first, we will tell our children “Keep in mind that you reap what you have sowed. If you respect the elderly, you will be respected and when you grow up, you will be successful; and if you have no respect for the elderly, when you grow up, you will fail to do anything and will be despised by others. If you do not help miserable others but ignore them then no one will help you when you are in need. So, you should love and help others.” When we teach our children morals and the law of Cause and Effect, we save them in next countless lives.

Not only our family, we also have to invite our neighbors to go to temples with us. Of course, they will tell us they are very busy with their work and have no time going to temples. In this case, we should tell them, “I am busier than you. However, there is one day like today in a year and because I love you, I invite you to go to temples to listen to the Dharma with me. We come to there to pay homage to the Buddha and be taught morals. This is thousands of times more beneficial than your working. Go with me and you see I am right.” That is, we try to bring the Dharma to others and when they come back from temples, they will have faith in the Three Jewels, hence, will be afraid of doing bad deeds and try to do good deeds. This way, we can save them in their next life. And how about our blessing? We can enjoy it in innumerable lives.
