Guiding Your Parents to Lean on the Triple Gem
In the teachings, filial piety is not just about providing delicious and exotic foods to your parents. It also involves offering them wholesome meals and presenting sacred offerings. This has the highest and most ethical significance. When you filially guide and instruct your parents to lean on the Triple Gem, you become a good friend and a noble intellectual to your parents on the path of realizing the truth of the Buddha.

Effectiveness in Practice and Transforming Your Parents
The effectiveness of your own practice of the Dharma will serve as a positive catalyst for transforming your parents. As you mature in the Dharma, your parents will also live by the Dharma. Children and parents will grow together in the Dharma, creating a family unit of righteousness. Such a combination is a harmonious resonance of happiness and liberation. This helps your parents have confidence and follow the path of the Buddha’s truth.

Parents Becoming Buddhas in the Family
When you live by the Dharma and uphold the principles of the Dharma, your parents will also live by the Dharma and become Buddhas in the family. In this case, the family has become a practical Pure Land. Filial children bring the core of the Dharma to the family, making the family sacred. Both parents and children carry the “”genes”” of wisdom and courage.
