Ngày đăng: 17-04-2021

Buddha has already taught: the earth has 3 periods of 10,000 years: stone age of 4000 years, bronze age of 3000 years, and then the electronic - atomic period of 3000 years is the last period to destroy the earth.


Student asked:
 
Uncle, how many periods human beings on earth live through?
 
Teacher replied:
 
Here on earth it has three periods, the first is when the earth is destroyed, It enters the Stone Age in 3,000 years. The Bronze Age then begins in the middle of the year 4,000. Then the atomic period emerges. Three periods: stone - bronze - and atomic.

Student asked:
 
Could you please explain more about the period of humankind, Uncle?
 
Teacher replied:
 
The concept of three ages only exists in Buddhism while other religions do not adopt this.
 
+ The first period is the former day of the dharma when an omniscient person start teaching Buddhism.
 
+ The Middle day of the dharma is the period when buddhism is transferred and circulated.
 
+ The later day of the dharma is when the truth of Buddhism is announced.
 
Buddhists should understand there are three periods, but for other religions, they don’t adopt it. Therefore, if we follow Buddhism, we have to understand this. We have intellect so we should understand it, we have to understand Buddhism clearly in order to cultivate Buddhism without being wrong.

Student asked:
 
How many periods are there In Buddhism? Would you please explain to me.
 
Teacher replied:
 
In Buddhism, there are three periods: the former day of the dharma, the middle day of the dharma, the later day of the dharma. The later day of the Dharma is divided into 5 periods: the former day of dharma ending age, the middle day of dharma ending age, the later day of dharma ending age, the last day of dharma ending age, the close of dharma ending age when this world comes to an end, the earth rolls back to the Stone Age.

Student asked:
 
Some people said the destruction of the earth is due to human beings while others said it is due to natural law. Which one is correct?
 
Teacher replied:
 
- Whichever is correct.
 
+ The earth: it obeys the rule: formation – stability – dissolution – disappearance, when the world population is up to 10 billion or up to 11-12 billion people, human would kill each other because
 
* Polluted environment both atmosphere and water source.
 
* Insufficient land for humans to live.
 
* Food: shortage of food supply.
 
* Resources: people over-exploit all the resources under the ground, so we no longer have any resources to serve human civilization's advance. The earth will be drifted away from its orbit and life on earth will be destroyed.
 
* Weapons: arms race competitions make weapons manufactured every day. An anger could press the button, how could we manage it? An armoury was to be used one day.
