Separation from the love ones
Union with the ones we hate
Do not get what we want
To gain the right view, right understanding in the course of studying Buddhism 每個人能夠得到正見的熏習
To build solid foundation 把基礎打好
To learn how to assess various Dharma teachings 法的抉擇
Not to pursue an impractical and overly ambitious goal不會好高騖遠
Not to discuss the profound and the esoteric不會談玄說妙, 在一種圓融神話裡
Not to become an ideology,不會只有理想化, 圓滿的想像中
Not to speculate about the future? 不會想像於未來如何如何? Where to be in the future? 未來要到哪裡去?
Not to deify the Buddha as a god or heavenly being不會把佛神化了,天化了
Will improve in every moment of our lives through right view 會在我們生命的每個當下依正見而昇華而提升, change ourselves 改造自己, be able to get rid of greed, hatred and delusion 真正的能夠脫離貪瞋癡煩惱的束縳.

Return to our human realm回到人的本位來, return to our daily life 回到生活中, return to our present state of the body and mind 回到當前的身心狀態來

use our own minds as a kind of private test tube
when experiencegreed and anger are present in our minds, they lead to disquiet and suffering
when experiencegreed and anger are absent from our minds, it results in tranquility and happiness.
As Buddhism became widespread所有的佛法的推廣越來越廣, culture and custom differs in every region每個地區,每個文化,每個習俗都不同, Buddhism had to adapt itself需要很多的適應. Such adaptions are not to deviate from the original teachings適應跟方便是不能離開純正的佛法.
