What would you say to a practitioner who wonders if he is going to take the boddhisattva vows, one of the 4, and who steals a great deal of his food in supermarkets?
Answer from Master Kosen
Mr. Carrefour will not be ruined by your act, but do not risk to steal yourself even by thinking that what you take do not belong to you by a divine right and has been always intended for you.
Then, always thank for this food and it will be yours.
