Venerable Ru Jun had asked this question many times.
Let’s hear his discourse
(the video starts from the beginning but Venerable talks about this question at the 1:15 min mark)
I gather from the video 4 points that can help me understand how I can better use my life.
It is to strive:
- to keep the Dharma in the world
- to desire and have the 善知识 (Spiritual Guides) stay in the world
- to follow the 善知识 and their guidance
- to battle 无明 and eradicate suffering
