Knowing is not the same as doing
In video track one; Venerable Master Chin Kung gives a clear explanation between the Catholic version of soul and Dharma-nature. It has to do with our minds distinctions from discriminatory thoughts. As a friend who I am proud to call my teacher says: We walk through our life with a filter that changes how we perceive what we are watching. Change the filter and the scene changes accordingly. He uses a visual representation of a rectangle made by holding his hands together with forefingers and thumbs extended to form a rectangle wen held together, and looking through this filter. Truth in knowledge is the same regardless of the source, except when we place distinctions on it. It is not how we gain the knowledge that is important, but rather how we implement the teachings. If we follow the Five Precepts and the Ten Good Conducts we are on the right path. A Christian who knows the Ten Commandments but does not follow them is no different than a Buddhist who knows the Five Precepts and Ten Good Conducts but ignores them in his daily life.
