Harm from others when learning

Chapter Twenty

Now that you are studying be prepared for harm from people. This can manifest itself in a number of different ways. Someone can belittle you when speaking about an issue which you have studied and they have not. Typically, someone may be talking to you about an issue and insist that what they said was correct. As well as denying what you have said even though it may be the soundest position.

They may not be aware that you have studied these issues or they may want to show their intelligence to you, by informing you about something that they think you do not know. This is bad enough with a student but with a scholar it's much worse. So use the appropriate manners by saying something like, I know you already know this... Then continue your statement or question.

If you are speaking with someone who has studied the religion with trusted scholars over the years; know that your opinion or what you have read in a book a few days ago may not be correct.

Also note that people may be jealous that you are studing with a certain scholar or a certain text. So be aware of this, you need to keep an eye on this. Although, it does not happen often because most people are unaware of the benefits of scared knowledge and the blessings that it brings. Even if you told you them what you are studying they may not know what it is!

You may also be subject to harm from other students which is something that you must bear in mind when you are around other students. Try your best to over look this type of behaviour and focus on your studies.
