beginning to become quite an effective bodhisattva

As you remember the triple gem again and again, the benefit, enlightenment aside, your attitude towards the life changes. For instance what used to be such a big deal is not a big deal anymore. What used to really stir you does not stir you. What used to make you go crazy such as fame or criticism or gain or lost, slowly slowly you have no difference with them. So slowly slowly eight worldly dharmas we call it, you will begin to see – okay criticism and praise. Not a big deal. You will not make a big deal out of this praise, criticism. You will not make a big deal about gain and lost. If you, when you reach to this stage where you don’t make a big deal out of these things you are becoming a dharma practitioner, you have become a very good manager of life. Everything is fine. If it works out, good, if it doesn’t work out, that is also good. So the life is no stress, economical, happy. And then people look at you, you are easy going, friendly, because you have no agenda. Nothing really sort of makes you go crazy. So you very likable person to be with. Whatever you say will have a big impact on them. Then you are beginning to become quite an effective bodhisattva. And this is something that we can do. We must try to do.
