everyone is a good man. everyone possesses the buddha-nature sleeping within him. but given a certain set of temptations or conditions, evil and greed beseech him and he falls from grace.
if he is mindful to other's criticism and awaken from his folly to stop whatever wrong he was doing or about to carry out, maybe his reputation would not be stained.
the reason that min yi monk came up with "to help more needies" and blah-blah.... those were quite hypocritical. there was the annual charity program for donations. it would have suffice the needs of RENCI charity.
the monk failed himself and the public's trust in him. but the bigger sin is he might have failed followers who might now be skeptical about BUDDHISM.
so here to remind everyone:
TRUST THE RELIGION AND HAVE FAITH IN IT...but not the monks who execute it. at the end of the day, it's all about you and your dormant BUDDHA only and nobody else.
