서원과 욕심

법문3

법문3

서원과 욕심이 비슷하나 천양의 차가 있나니, 서원은 나를 떠나 공(公)을 위하여 구하는 마음이요, 욕심은 나를 중심으로 사(私)를 위하여 구하는 마음이니라.
– 정산 종사 법어, 법훈편 23장

Aspiration and greed look similar, but there is a huge difference between the two; aspiration is the mind that seeks on behalf of the public, while greed is the mind that seeks on behalf of the private self.
– Master Chongsan
