  • Talking About The One Hundred Diseases


    The Elder Lord said:

    Eliminating ongoing disasters and relieving sufferings, are not as easy as preventing them from happening. Treating illnesses and healing diseases, are not as auspicious as taking precautions against them. The people of this era have inverted views, they focus mostly on healing diseases instead of preventing them. Hence, there are kings who cannot keep their kingdoms, and there are bodied beings who cannot fully live their lifespans. A saint seeks blessings before the signs of blessing appear, and extinguishes misfortunes before they come. A disaster is tiny at its beginning stage, and an illness is slight at its initial time. A person may think that a small good deed is not beneficial enough and therefore refuse to do it, and may think that a small bad deed is not very harmful and therefore refuse to correct it. However, if small virtues do not accumulate, they cannot become a big virtue; if small badness are not prevented, they will add up to be a big sin. Thus, some important items are selected and listed here, to let people know the causes of misfortunes. These are the one hundred diseases:
