Do Not See Faults in Others
It is because of pride in our own qualities that we see faults in others. And by noticing faults in others, our pride gets more grounded and becomes even stronger.
A Spiritual aspirant who desires to remove his faults, must not look at the faults of others.
By seeing other’s faults, he thus reinforces his own faults, and by associating with those faults, new faults start to arise.
By seeing faults in others, neither we will be benefited, nor the other.
The more impure our inner faculties are, the more we notice the faults of others. Just like a radio tunes to a particular frequency, so the impurities in the inner senses, tunes into and catches the frequency of more faults.
If we desire that no one should think of us as bad, then we have no right to think of others as bad.
By not thinking of the others as bad, goodness arises from within. That goodness which arises from within, is solid and pervasive.
If we wish to protect our innocence, we should not see faults in any one, neither in ourself, nor in others.
