“Everything in the universe is perfectly balanced, with no excess, no shortage, from the tiny speck of dust to the great galaxies. Human life is too short, and always get caught up in the hectic life. Few people realize today's wastefulness, paving the way for tomorrow's suffering. It's all just fleeting illusions, yet people take them for granted. If we know how to wake up and observe, we can learn many good things. Unfortunately, when the time is right, people forget the past very quickly. Only in suffering, humiliation and humiliation will learn. Maybe that's also the reason there are always changes in impermanence, prompting people to learn."
Some people think that Journey to the East is a book that raises questions about the mysteries of life and the universe, then Zhuan Falun is the book that answers those questions.
