Being biased with monks and not look after the parents
Questions from the audience:
I used to be biased and did not respect to the monks, example, I turned my back toward the monks because I did not want to pay respect to them. What bad retribution will I get? And how can I do to solve this problem?
My older sister has married with her husband whose race is Chinese and he is very rich. She has lived with her husband’s house after wedding and her new house was near my parents’ house very much. They could walk to visit each other easily. One day my brother-in-law hit his child because his child wanted to eat some sweet. When my mother knew that, she was angry so that she quarreled with him. When my sister knew that, she took side with her husband and did not take care of my parents until they passed away.
Why did my older sister do like although their houses were very near? She has never helped other relatives when they trouble either. What retribution will she get from these bad deeds?
You used to be biased and did not respect to the monks, these bad deeds will affect you to reborn in the low family because you used to express your irreverence in the Triple Gems such as turning your back toward the monks. You can solve this problem by paying respect to the Triple Gems sincerely and making a wish every time you make merit that you want to be away from this bad retribution.
Your older sister did not look after her parents and has not helped her relatives who trouble because she has been sticky and selfish since the previous lifetime. These bad retributions will cause her to be poor and trouble and no one wants to look after her.
