Living in a Grateful world

 As a great virtue said in "Living in a Grateful World":

Grateful to the person who hurt you, because he tempered your mind;

 Grateful to the person who deceived you, because he has improved your knowledge; Be grateful to the person who beats you, because he eliminated your karma;

Grateful to the person who abandoned you, because he taught you to be self-reliant;

Grateful to the person who tripped you, because he strengthened your ability;

Be grateful to the person who scolds you, because he has contributed to your concentration.

These few words are worthy of our deep consideration.  Generally, we grit our teeth with hatred for those who have hurt ourselves, and even hope that something unsatisfactory will happen to him.  But in this passage, we should "grateful for those who hurt you."  Why should you be grateful to him?  Because if no one has ever hurt us, we may be like flowers in a greenhouse, unable to withstand any wind and rain. It is precisely because someone has hurt us. When we recover from this injury, our minds  It has matured greatly.

"Be grateful to the person who scolds you, because he has contributed to your concentration." Many people think that they are well-trained and never lose their temper.  Why?  Because many people around him are admiring him, complimenting him, and saying some beautiful things to him.  When a person suddenly came to him one day and pointed to his nose to scold him, if he could still maintain that kind of cultivation, that kind of smile, and that kind of patience, this would show a person's true determination.  Hui.

 So we should be grateful to all those who are helpful to us.  This is just as the great writer Balzac said: "The things in the world are never absolute, and the results are completely different from person to person. Suffering is a stepping stone for genius, a wealth for capable people, but it is for the weak.  An abyss."

Life is wonderful

 Life is wonderful indeed. To live happily til last breathe is all human want.

For body, we need food to survive day by day. To live properly, we need right mindset. We need to adopt positivity.

Humans all got different mindset. The highest mindset is free from hatred, greed and silliness.

Some people having hatred like to carry out terrorist activities. These people have zero wisdom and their lives wouldn't be good but they will suffer sooner or later. 

Greed is very common. The wise person wouldn't get whatever not supposed to get. Those robbers will have bad lives somehow.

Everything happened all got reasons behind.

With right mindset, we wouldn't easily by negative propaganda.

In short, we need to examine ourselves, try to amend all our mistakes, then we can have positive life.

All human need to live happily even beliefs are different because of different locations, different teachings, different cultures. We can't follow bad practice if we know it is bad for human.

We do our best.

Fortune and misery

 The Exalted One (Lao Tzu) states: Fortune and misery do not happen at 

random and nor are they the result of chance or machinations; they are 

instead caused by the karmic actions of each individual. The rewards for a 

person's virtue and good deeds as well as the consequences of evil deeds 

follows each like a shadow.

Peace starts with me

 Yesterday I went to coffee shop to have dinner. A 80 years old said he always tell people to do good things. This old man that he was very disappointed of human beings don't want to do good things but all bad things.

I told him just focus on doing good things . You can advise them to do good but don't be unhappy because they don't want to do.

We have to do ourselves within. Anyway human beings can do ready good if they can wake up.

I think Buddha teaching is ready good especially in this era.

Why?

Buddha told us not to kill, steal, illegal sex, lies, alcohol, etc.

The important part is to have compassion towards all lives

Common karma and different karma

Master Chin Kung always teach people about human lives. Let's see what master said: Everyone hopes to have blessings, and fortunes must also be motivated.  The Buddha tells us in all scriptures that generosity is the cause and condition of all blessings.  The wealth, wisdom, health and longevity we have gained are the result.  The retribution does not come out of thin air, it is accumulated in the past life.  There are reasons and destinies for accumulating merit.  Because of victory and inferiority, your heart is brave and disorganized.  Fate also has advantages and disadvantages. When you encounter a great fate, the result is particularly good; when you encounter a fate that is not victorious, the fruit is almost repaid.There is no cause and effect in all the laws of the world. If we want to accumulate merits and cultivate real merit, we must know how to give and provide, especially the Dharma, and the Dharma. This merit is boundless.  If you are truly willing to give, give sincerely, help the society, and help all suffering beings. If you are blessed or not, if you give it to everyone, the accumulated virtue will become more and more extraordinary.  We know that we are blessed, and we must work hard to grow blessings. We hope that this blessing will grow, the Three Treasures will bless us, and the Dragon Heaven will bless us.We see that today's society is not good, and there are many people who cause evil karma, which is a precursor to the future of the great catastrophe. Fortunately, there are also people who have accumulated meritorious deeds. Therefore, there are still Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to support and stabilize the catastrophe.  If no one in this place accumulates their contributions, the future of this area will be unimaginable.  It's good for us to understand these things in our hearts, so when we meet a real fellow Daoist, we must persuade him to study hard, turn evil into good, and turn confusion into enlightenment.  Although karma has common karma and different karma, our other karma can affect the common karma, especially when there are many Buddhist students and many people who truly cultivate, it is decided to influence the common karma.There are too many people in the world now, and it is prone to war.  Especially because of the inequality between the rich and the poor, most people live in this world and complain about others. This is very terrifying.  In today's world, the number of countries possessing nuclear weapons has gradually increased, and the world's ethical and moral concepts have fallen, which is terrible.  No one can predict the change of the situation right now. It is really changing rapidly. We know the current situation, and we have to be serious about the practice of Buddhism.  Especially in this era, with natural disasters and man-made disasters, Teacher Li said before his death that the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas could not be saved by this catastrophe, and sentient beings felt karma.We have common karma with all beings, but there are different karma in the common karma, which is individual practice.  Individuals earnestly practice, this is another karma, which can avoid disasters.  We know that after a great disaster, there are some people who can be spared, and those who can be spared are blessed.  As the saying goes, if you don't die in a catastrophe, you will have a blessing. If he is not blessed, how can he escape the disaster?  There is no way to restore the common karma of all living beings. There are different karma in the common karma, not individual ones. This is something we should cherish especially If you are truly motivated and practice according to teachings, then you are a bodhisattva, and a bodhisattva lives in the world.  The Bodhisattva lives in this area, protects the Buddhas in the ten directions, and protects the dragon and heaven. This place is blessed. In the great catastrophe, this place can avoid disasters.The most extraordinary merit in the world is no more than practicing the pure patriarchal school. If we want to be blessed, we must honestly recite the Buddha.

Student guide for USA

Time to study useful student guide, how to be happy person. This is chapter 4– Be Trustworthy , this book is suitable for USA

Quote

“When I speak, honesty is important. Deceitful words and lies must not be tolerated. “

My view : USA always telling lies , fabricated washing powder as weapons of mass destruction, USA used this as the excuse to invade a middle east country. Ex USA secretary of state Pompeo telling people he was lieing all the time. So, he is not the trustworthy person. Whatever he says after that, how can you trust him. We don’t tell lies if we want to have blessed life.

Quote

” Rather than talking too much, it is better to speak less. I will speak only the truth, I will not twist the facts. “

My view : USA smearing China non stop. USA always twist the facts and collected all fake information from those anti China USA politicians and chinese traitors. USA just use this to smear China, like genocide, forced labor, etc.

Quote

“Cunning words, foul language, and philistine habits must be avoided at all costs.

What I have not seen with my own eyes, I will not readily tell to others. What I do not know for sure, I will not easily pass on to others. “

My view : USA smearing China without evidence and simply said China viruses and created Asian hate and many American Asian get bullied, beaten. We know USA having bad government because the president behave badly.

To be continued……

Human and world peace

 Now year 2021, the world still not peaceful. It looks like the world still in conflict.

Conflicts on race, nation, ideology, religion, etc. The only thing we can do is to make ourselves peaceful. We do what we can to upgrade ourselves.....

We have no extra energies to tell others but we need to focus ourselves.

Life is short but precious. Don't critical other race, religion, ideology etc. Don't have the mindset that only we are right, others all wrong. Instead we must respect all races, religions, ideologies.....

All human are not perfect. Even if you think you are perfect but not all will agree because human beings are full of hatred, greed and stupidity and we must change ourselves to be better, the positive energies or frequencies will flow out the whole world.

More positive frequencies need to send out to the whole world to dilute negative energies.

Whatever we do, there will be the outcome good or bad and time will come, this is the natural law.

Think objectively

 In life, many people can't act independenly while facing strong partner.

Internationally, weak countries also behave the same, they are manipulated by strongest country.

Even that strongest country telling lies, smearing, these weak countries just follow their instructions. This is the cruel fact.

But there is the price.

Human wisdom 7

 There is no eternal night in the world, and there is no eternal winter in the world.

Learning must be like a bee, plucking many flowers in order to produce honey.

Successful people are always willing to do things that unsuccessful people are not willing to do.

The hardworking bee never has time to mourn.

 Luck is a chance that happens to hit your efforts.

 Gain calmness, lose calmness, go with the flow, and fight for the inevitability.

 Life can't be deceived. A person has to live upright.

 Life is like a play, and playing your own role is the key to the success of the play.

Don't try to add time to your life, but give life to your time.

Human wisdom 6

Facing difficulties, pessimists often only see the negative side of things.

 Don't always feel that you are miserable. There are more people in the world who suffer than us.

 With a selfless love, you have everything.

 Behind every hard work, there must be a double reward.

Others will always be right, and I will always be wrong. This way, there is no trouble.

The one who suffers is always oneself, remember that suffering is the blessing.

Those who sow with tears can certainly harvest with a smile.

The value of a person is determined by oneself.

The name of the bystander will never climb on the scoreboard of the game.

 Anyone can give up, don't give up yourself.

Sometimes, trash is just a misplaced talent.

Human wisdom 5

People always cherish what they haven't got, and forget what they have.
 I would rather regret it after doing it than regret it if it was missed.
 Fate is responsible for shuffling the cards, but it is ourselves who play the cards.
 Hold the best hope and prepare for the worst for your best efforts.
The biggest mistake in life is constantly worrying about making mistakes.
 There is no such thing as failure unless you stop trying.
Life is only inevitable, there is no accident.

Human wisdom 4

 I just read an article, I quote : "  

How to avoid assumptions?

It’s impossible to avoid assumptions. But one can try.
  • Check first whether it’s true or false
  • Question more
  • communicate properly
  • Stop controlling your life (false beliefs)
  • Being mindful- in other words, realise that it’s only an assumption and not to jump to conclusions ." 
  • Regarding Xinjiang, I think genocide is based on assumption and political ideologies. If not evidence, it is smearing.

Human wisdom 3

 The establishment of life's great deeds is not in knowing, but in being able to do it.

中国人要过安定的生活

 中国包括大陆台湾香港澳门要大团结,要求同求异.中国人要过安定的生活.

记得七十年代,中国人民很苦,华侨送衣服给中国的家乡.一九七八年邓小平访问新加坡之后,大力改革发展,人民温饱慢慢解决.一九八九年,一批学生太急了,也要学西方示威,局势一发不可收拾,背后有一股局外人势力再推动,当然是不怀好意.邓小平成功把局势控制下来.. 当然一改革开放的副作用就是如此.

現在中国已经是第二经济体,可惜还有一批”遊击队”同样是由不怀好心局外人所鼓动,目的就是搞垮中国.

中国人要过安定的生活,何必搞蟑螂革命吧?

Our destinies all made by ourselves

 World population is about 70 over billions and each individual has different destiny.

According to Buddha teaching, all human beings ' destinies all made by own selves.  So we don't blame others but because of our hearts.

If you poor because you are very stingy probably in the previous life. If you are rich probably because you helped people financially in the past life.

If you get killed probably due to you had killed people in the past life.

Because we are not Buddha so we don't know all these. But Buddha the enlightened one who had given the teachings 2500 years ago.

Our life can change for the better if we follow the teaching.

Basically, Buddha wanted us to live the happy lives, and we have to get rid of greed, hatred and stupidity.

Because of greed, hatred , we all attached to it and not awaken and have to go through recarnation again and again.

Buddha teaching is suitable for all human. In flat it is not the religion. It is the human education.

The secret of happiness

 In this confused world, it is not easy to live peacefully daily. So many disasters, pandemics, conflicts, etc.

For me, I want to live longer, what should I do? My eyes can't see anyhow to reduce something horrible into my brain. Because all things we see will enter into my brain and it will create " troubles" for me. I should not write, talk anyhow, it will reflect my mentality. If my mentality is positive , then it is ok. But if my mentality is negative, then My words will affect others badly. So now, I try not to write anyhow. I must relax, it is important for me now.

I must cautious in whatever I do, try to do all good deeds.

My secret actually is reciting Namoamituofo.

往生西方极乐世界

五十多个年头过去了!谁也不知还有多少个年头在这世界。有幸能遇到智慧法,让我知道何去何从。从大智慧者的口中,知道宇宙人生的真相。中国女皇帝武则天知道佛法的可貴。她说百千万刼难遭遇。的确是如此,佛法与世间法有明显不同。一般世人习以为常的行为正是我们要对话下药之处。有些学佛者得到法喜。知道学佛是人生最高的享受。这是一般凡夫所感覚不到的。好!下次再谈!阿弥陀佛

什么叫忏悔

 忏是忏摩的简称,是从印度梵语翻过来的。悔是中国字。忏摩的意思,跟中国这个悔改的意思很接近,所以翻经的法师用这二个字来翻忏摩,这叫做梵中合译。上面忏是梵语,下面悔是中国话,这是忏悔两个字面上的意思,那么它的真正意思呢?就是后不再造,知过必改这叫忏悔。忏悔就是儒家所讲的不二过,我的过失只有一次不会有第二次,同样的过失不会有重覆,这个就叫忏悔。

什么是业障

 什么是业障

所谓的“业”就是造作,造作就是业,因此造作的范围就非常广大了。我们身体一举一动,身在造作叫身业;我们嘴巴一天到晚爱说话,这个说话是口业;心里面还有妄想,要有念头,常有烦恼,一天到晚它都不断,这个叫做意业。我们造业再多,归纳起来,总不外乎身、口、意三业这三大类的造作。这三大类一动,它就造作,造作里面有善、有恶、有无记。我们想一桩好事情,什么是好事情,利益众生的事情,这叫好事,这叫善业。我们想一个坏事情,什么叫坏事情呢?念念为自己,为自己就是恶业,就不是善业了,也许大家听到就很不高兴,为自己有什么不好呢?这个世间俗话常说:人不为己,天诛地灭,人为自己这是天经地义,应该的,佛为什么说这是恶业呢?因为那就是存在我执和法执,认为我是对的,我需要等等。

现在了解一下什么是“障”。学佛的目标是要超越三界,是要成佛做祖、成菩萨。我们起心动念如果有我执就做不到,为什么做不到呢?因为有“我”这个障,障碍了超越三界,障碍了明心见性,障碍了成佛、成菩萨。为什么会障碍,我们大概都看过《金刚经》。《金刚经》里面讲得很清楚,若菩萨有我相、人相、众生相、寿者相即非菩萨。这个我相就是着了相,念念都有我,你着我相,这就是我执。我执不破别说菩萨,阿罗汉果也得不到,佛法修学的成就,最低的果报阿罗汉,什么资格才证得阿罗汉呢?我执破了,法执破了,就证法身大士了,就明心见性证菩萨果位了,所以佛教给我们始终是破我执、法执破这二种执着而已。四摄六度都也是在教我们怎么破我执和法执。我们起心动念都想自己,这是天天在增长我执,这怎么能出得了三界,所以你想想看这是善,还是恶呢?当然是恶,为什么说念念为众生是善呢?大家要知道,人起心动念都想别人,想一切大众,那个我啊,慢慢就忘掉,我执就破了,所以这是破我执最巧妙的方法,叫你一天到晚起心动念不想自己,起心动念想众生,把这个心量打开,所以念念想众生想别人,这是善。念念想自己那就是恶!这个恶业感招的恶果就叫业障,也叫做烦恼障,这个起心动念都是烦恼。

还有一种障叫所知障,就是我们认识事物本质有困难,做不到全面、客观地去认识事物形成的障碍。

念佛三大利益

 念佛三大利益

  • 一句佛号(南无阿弥陀佛!),能消灭八十亿劫生死重罪(这是过去的)。
  • 一句佛号(南无阿弥陀佛!),能息除人生烦恼,消灾延寿得福慧(这是现在的)。
  • 一句佛号(南无阿弥陀佛!),能跳出六道轮回,往生极乐世界,永远长生不灭(这是将来的)。

阿弥陀佛

 想来想去,还是念阿弥陀佛,好!

Dialogue is better than confrontation

 "120 years of ups and downs", the "Korea Daily" said on the 21st that after the Sino-US Dialogue, two symbolic pictures became hot spots on the Chinese Internet. One was that the powers of 11 countries, including the United States, forced China to sign in 1901.  The scene of the "Xin Chou Treaty" that humiliated the country, and the other is at the Sino-US Dialogue 120 years later, Yang Jiechi reprimanded the US side, "You are not qualified to say in front of China that you are talking to China from a position of strength."  According to the report, the first result of the talks is that China has shown that it can look at the United States. This is in sharp contrast with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga's "benevolence" to two senior US officials who visited recently.  The second result is that China and the United States have avoided strategic misjudgments.  Through this meeting, the Chinese side once again drew red lines for the United States in terms of sovereignty, core interests, and the dignity of the Chinese nation, and demonstrated a strong sense of presence internally and externally.  The third result is that Sino-US relations have not completely broken down.  Although the two sides started talking with each other at the beginning of the talks, they still left room for follow-up dialogue.The report also said that China has also gained in the process of tightening the encirclement of China by the United States, that is, South Korea and India are still reluctant to name and directly target China under pressure from the United States, which means that China’s neighbors are not willing to "  "Choose a side station" or overstimulate China.  With loopholes in the U.S. strategy toward China, China's negotiating power with the U.S. is increasing. The U.S. media has paid attention to the eight areas mentioned in the Xinhua News Agency’s report that the two parties agree, hope or are committed to cooperation and discussion.  The US "Boston Globe" said that after the talks full of gunpowder flavor, Chinese state media said that China and the United States "both sides are committed to strengthening dialogue and cooperation in the field of climate change" and discuss other issues.  This sign indicates that the talks between the two sides have made progress, albeit small.  According to the report, China and the United States decided to establish a joint climate change working group and discussed and discussed the promotion of exchanges between the embassy and other groups including the media.Mr. Biden, stop speaking harshly to China." The New York Times stated on the 19th that the Biden administration has not changed the chaotic China policy during the Trump era and that the United States should take measures to ease the tension between the United States and China.  .  The article puts forward five suggestions for the future development of Sino-US relations: The United States should resume exchange programs such as Fulbright Scholarships; stop stigmatizing Confucius Institutes; allow Chinese journalists who were previously deported by the Trump administration to return to the United States; lift restrictions  The practice of Chinese Communist Party members entering the country; inviting China to reopen the Chinese Consulate in Houston.  The article said that although these are small moves, they are of great significance to the establishment of mutual trust between China and the United States and can pave the way for more difficult problems. "China is poking the wounds of the United States", the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung of Germany stated that the geopolitical dispute between the United States and China will be the main contradiction in the next ten years and beyond.  However, even under tension, there is still room for cooperation between the two sides.  The world expects the two largest economies to cooperate in areas of common interest.  The United States believes that its opening remarks will leave China speechless, but China completely refutes the argument that the United States believes it can still act as a "beacon of democracy in the world."  According to reports, Trump's four years in power has damaged the image of the United States in the world.  Chinese diplomats clearly demonstrated Beijing's new confidence in "rising east and falling west (that is, the rise of the East and the decline of the West)." China and Russia coordinate diplomatic steps. As Biden strives to re-establish the leadership position of the United States in the world, the relationship between the United States and its two major geopolitical opponents is facing severe tests." The Associated Press stated that the Biden administration has dealt with China and China in the past week.  Russia has taken an unusually tough stance.  Biden called Russian President Vladimir Putin a "relentless killer." Senior US officials criticized a series of issues in China during the dialogue, and both Moscow and Beijing responded forcefully.  According to the report, after participating in the perfect middle-level high-level dialogue, Brinken will travel to Brussels on the 22nd to participate in the NATO foreign ministers meeting.  The U.S. State Department stated that Brinken will emphasize the Biden administration's “reinforcing the determination of the Trans-Atlantic Alliance and revitalizing the relationship between the United States and its allies through NATO” and discuss “how to cooperate on the basis of common values ​​to meet global challenges from Russia and China.”  . On the same day, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov will visit China.  RIA Novosti stated that the Russian and Chinese foreign ministers will discuss the status and prospects of strategic cooperation between the two countries, and organize high-level meetings and celebrations to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the signing of the "Russian-Chinese Treaty of Good-Neighborliness, Friendship and Cooperation".  The two foreign ministers will also exchange views on bilateral cooperation in international affairs.  The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the two countries hold similar or consistent positions on most global issues and intend to further coordinate their diplomatic steps closely.  During the meeting of the two foreign ministers, a joint statement on global governance issues will be issued.Sputnik News Agency said that the chairman of the Expert Council of the Russian-Chinese Friendship, Peace and Development Committee Tavrovsky said that Biden’s remarks against Putin and the US’s rudeness towards China in the dialogue show that no matter who the US is with  Neither will cooperate on an equal footing.  "Of course, the Russian and Chinese foreign ministers will discuss the issue of the United States. But the most important thing is to strengthen bilateral relations, that is, military, economic, and political relations. If we become stronger and coordinate these forces, then the United States will have to buy it and stop being unreasonable.  behavior".

The world needs cooperation not conflict

 From March 18th to 19th, the China-US high-level strategic dialogue was held in Anchorage.  After the dialogue, Yang Jiechi, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and director of the Office of the Central Foreign Affairs Commission, and State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi accepted media interviews. Yang Jiechi said that in the past two days, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi and I had long-term strategic communications with Secretary of State Brinken and Assistant Sullivan, and conducted candid and constructive exchanges on our respective domestic and foreign policies and bilateral relations.  This dialogue is beneficial and conducive to enhancing mutual understanding.  The two sides still have important differences on some issues.  China will firmly safeguard its national sovereignty, security and development interests.  China's development and growth is unstoppable.  The communication between the two parties this time is to implement the consensus reached by President Xi Jinping and President Biden on the call.  We hope that the two sides will strengthen communication, exchanges and dialogue in various fields.  The two sides should handle Sino-US relations in accordance with the principles of non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect, and win-win cooperation, so that Sino-US relations can develop on a healthy and stable track.Wang Yi said that the Chinese side came to the dialogue with sincerity, because dialogue is better than confrontation, but the dialogue must be conducted in the spirit of mutual respect and seeking common ground while reserving differences, and cannot unilaterally pull orders or raise prices.  There are many concerns on both sides.  There are some doubts that can be alleviated through dialogue.  Some are long-standing problems that can be managed through dialogue.  At the same time, China clearly pointed out to the US that sovereignty and territorial integrity are major issues of principle. The US should not underestimate China's determination to defend national sovereignty, security, and development interests, and the Chinese people's will to safeguard national dignity and legitimate rights and interests.  China's attitude towards the development of Sino-US relations is clear and consistent.  It is hoped that the United States can also meet each other halfway, especially to respect and accommodate each other's core interests and major concerns.  On this basis, China has always opened the door to the continued dialogue between China and the United States.

Harmony needed

 From young, you were fed with something, you likely to be influenced. And you will believe it and quite difficult to change that concept. 

All these thoughts, if handle not properly, it can affect your whole life.

For example, if you believe an particular religion from very young age. Then your mindset will be " my one is right, the other all wrong. This thought is fixed by your own thought.

So, the problems arise , your belief and his belief might not be the same. There is no ending debate and conclusion.

We know all human are not the same, so we need to respect others.....am I right?

Wearing mask is good for you

 USA some people are ready crooked, they want freedom and don't mind die. What type of mindset? Very horrible mindset, no wonder 550000 lives lost.On March 6, local time, a protest against the mask order occurred in Idaho, the United States. More than a hundred people gathered outside the state capitol to burn masks.According to a video released by local media in Idaho, a trash can was lit by the public, and many parents are encouraging children to burn masks. People who participated in the protests also hung signs outside the State Capitol that read "Burn Masks" and "Free Idaho".  At the scene, demonstrators were holding assault rifles and threw photos of the president with mocking words into the fire.Although the governor of Idaho has never issued a statewide mandatory mask order, some local governments in the state still require residents in their jurisdiction to wear masks to slow the spread of the new crown virus.  This has caused a lot of dissatisfaction among the people, who believe that the mask order restricts personal freedom.

Greed hatred stupidity

 Recently I write some posts, and now I find I am wasting my precious time. Look at this world, people are full of greed hatred and stupidity. The more I write the more I stupid.

So now I stop writing for a month. Ha ha ha. I don't want to absorb all nonsense. If not I will be the person who also speak nonsense.

Please wear masks

 Please wear masks. I see USA some very stubborn guys resisting wearing masks. They want " Freedom' this is ready crooked mindset.The governor of Texas, Abbott, announced on the 2nd that the state will fully resume work on March 10 and revoke the "mask order" and restaurant traffic restrictions and other epidemic prevention orders.  Mississippi Governor Reeves also announced the cancellation of the mask injunction on the 2nd.  Warrensky, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said, "I know people are tired, they want to return to life, to return to normal, but we are not there yet."

So, We might not fooled by some stupid politicians. They thought God loves white only. They thought they are Superior but in flat, God treats all fairly. If you don't care then the outcome is 500000000 lives lost. But seems like USA people are damn stupid.

念佛最好

 五哥,阿弥陀佛🙏愿我们大家每天好好念佛,不要间断。每天都要念佛,心情好不好都要念佛。这个很重要。像三哥学习好好用功.随着年龄的增长,看到自己一天一天的老,白头发越来越多,人也变老,难看了,我们还不警觉吗?晚年了;剩下的时间不是很多了。以往,我们浪费太多时间在不急之物。希望我们接下来,一定要学习放下一切不急之物,好好念佛。每天念佛,每天都消掉我们的业障。一点一滴,积少成多。到时,我们轻松自在,预知时日作佛去了,不再六道轮回。这一生是我们最后一生。不要怕老来孤独,老来没有人照顾。只要我们每天好好念佛,一切阿弥陀佛包办。


如果我们不想念佛,那就没有福报了,时间一天一天的浪费,到时还要六道轮回,受无量无边的苦痛😭。


阿弥陀佛加持我们。我们互相鼓励。

人生无常珍惜现在

Freedom and life

 If you think freedom is more important than life, nobody will say you are wrong because it is your freedom. If you are USA citizen and you want freedom and don't want to wear masks. Then if you get covic 19 , then you might join 45000 lost lives.

Your dead bodies need to wait at least 6 months to rest in peace inside the earth.

You have the choice, you want life or freedom. Nobody will care your dead bodies if you die from covic 19.

Scammer mindset

 Scammer is greedy for money illegally. Nowadays many scammers using all types of evil ways in internet. They are the beasts indeed and they all will go hells religiously.

Let's examine scammer's mindset. They are greedy and create fear on people.

In internet, these scammers mostly wouldn't show their faces, you won't hear their voices. For those illegal money lenders, they use their own rules, you have to pay them first before able to receive their loan money but many are cheated many times but they wouldn't give you any cents.

Sex scammers are those bastards , they use young ladies as bait. Once you intend to meet the lady. Then this mother fucker will force you, threatening you to pay security money. They talk like bastards .

Singapore police force said on Saturday 30.1.21

The suspects are aged between 16 and 77, and comprise 229 men and 115 women.

"The suspects are believed to be involved in 607 cases of scams, comprising mainly of Internet love scams, e-commerce scams, China official impersonation scams, fake gambling platform scams and loan scams," said SPF.

The investigations follow a two-week island-wide enforcement operation by officers from the Commercial Affairs Department and seven police land divisions that started on Jan 16.

We need to live happily

Life is short, the most is about 100 years.
Human bound to have done something wrong in they eyes of others.
Blaming others is easy, but blaming ourselves is ready necessary.
I see the world full of chaos especially now.
I just maintain my internal peace, that's it.
Life is short. Why continue to have all types of illusions, anger.
Let's smile ha ha ha.
Take it easy.

学弟子规,学做人

中华文化博大精深,在传播如何做人方面有很多的敎导。
只要那个地方有学习,那个地方就会和平。
中国人继承了这套传统,长冶久安。可惜近百年疏忽了。尤其是百多年被外族统冶的香港。虽然是华人,但是已失去华人传统的灵性。
看看最近的暴动,就知道这些好的沒学,坏的却去学,学外人什么示威这种下三流的文化。
中国人须要这种下三流的文化吗?
要学习如何做人才是香港应该做的,不要被枪炮下被压迫统冶,而被洗脑到忘记祖宗。
对不起,我又业障現前,写这些东西。
这就是证明业力多么可怕。

Peaceful mind

Life is ready short and now I realize the which one is important and not.
Now, I using the formula to examine.
Eyes,hearing, taste,mind: What we see/hear/taste things and it will affect our mindset. For example,I read news about trade war, Huawei saga and Hong Kong protests and my mind will have the opinions. My opinions can be different from others due to individual experience and background. From that it creates like and dislikes. Our emotions can be happy,sad,agitated,etc. This is ready bad because it creates greed,hatred and stupidity.
Realizing this, I don't want to be attached to all these, I want peaceful mind,this is my freedom of choice. I don't want to be in this daily confusion. So, I have deleted my recent blog posts about current affairs related to China,USA,Hong Kong.
After deleting it,I feel so nice,all my rubbishes cleared and I can focus beautiful things.
Life is ready good,it is up to individual. Actually my good friend told me to do something good and don't bother all these worldly conflict.
I take the advice and I think it is good to stop writing all these rubbishes.

遇到佛法太幸运了!
它点醒了我。
让我们知道人生宇宙的真相。

太妙了
大家努力吧
不要错过这一生,那太可惜了
加油
祝您身体健康坚持学佛念佛

本愿称名

“本愿为因,名号为果”,本愿、名号是属于佛这一边的。“本愿称名”,“本”“愿”“名”这三个字是属于佛这一边的;“称”即称念,是属于众生这一边的。所以,在“本愿称名”四个字中,包含了因果和生佛。
“为因果交彻、生佛一体之行”,什么叫“因果交彻”呢?就是因和果是互相交错、互相贯彻的。法藏比丘因中的誓愿一定贯彻到果上的名号,而果上的名号一定反流、追溯、透达到因中的誓愿,这叫“因果交彻”。
什么叫“生佛一体”呢?“生”即众生,众生在称念,称念的是阿弥陀佛果上的名号,称念弥陀名号,愿生弥陀净土,这样凡夫和佛成为一体。
“即是:以果地觉,为因地心,因该果海,果彻因源”,这四句话意义很深,也很透彻,很优美,但是不太容易懂。
“以果地觉,为因地心”,“果地觉”就是这句“南无阿弥陀佛”名号。法藏比丘已经成佛了,就有因地和果地——成佛之前叫因地,一旦成了佛就到了果地。果地的觉悟是在佛的立场上的,我们无法描述;无法描述的“果地觉”,阿弥陀佛就成之为这句名号。
“为因地心”是什么意思呢?我们现在信心称念阿弥陀佛名号,我们信。信什么?讲信心、“因地心”,就是众生这一边的,我们想要求生极乐世界。这是从众生还没往生的时候来说,我们在因地,因地的心就是指信心、愿心。
信心、愿心不是单独能生起的,单独生起的就是没有来源的。如果有人饿得要死了,人家对他说:“你一定能活下去,要有信心啊!”他没有粮食吃,哪能有信心?信心鼓不起来。他饿得要死了,端一碗小米粥给他,他不就有信心了吗?所谓信心,就依赖于这一碗小米粥,这碗小米粥就是他的信心之体。
我们要往生西方极乐世界,有人说“我靠自己的修行”。靠他自己的修行,那他的信心是以果地觉作为体的吗?不是的,是靠他自己的“杂毒之善”。
“杂毒之善”怎么能成为他的信心之体呢?显然,到后来生死关头、无常来临的时候,在无穷业力强大力量的冲击下,他那个“杂毒之善”当下粉碎,荡然无存。这个不能作为信心。
我们现在的信心以六字名号为体,我们信是信阿弥陀佛的名号是阿弥陀佛果地的觉悟、因中的誓愿,这样我们念佛才必定往生。除非法藏比丘没有成佛,除非他是骗子。
如果阿弥陀佛骗了我们,释迦牟尼佛骗了我们,十方诸佛也骗了我们,整个佛教就是一个骗子的学说,这些祖师大德从头到尾,两千多年来世界上这么多人的往生传、念佛往生的记录,这所有的都是骗子,那我们才不能往生。
这怎么可能呢?历史上这么多人,这么大的范围,大家都合伙来骗我们吗?有什么好处呢?所以,这是绝不可能的。这不可能,那么我们决定往生,所以说“以果地觉,为因地心”,这样才成为金刚信心。
善导大师说“共发金刚志,横超断四流”“此心深信,由若金刚”。怎么能够“由若金刚”?因为构成信心的原料就是金刚。什么能破坏阿弥陀佛的果地觉?不可能破坏的,这样的信心称为金刚信心。
我们信是信弥陀的誓愿、弥陀的名号,我们称名必然往生。所以,往生的资本,或者说资粮,都是以名号来说的。
如果以我们自己的修行,显然是豆腐渣工程,甚至用“豆腐渣工程”都不足以形容。这哪有金刚信心?
这样的人往往是什么样的呢?嘴上讲得很大,“外现贤善精进之相,内怀虚假”,甚至很骄慢。因为他需要骄慢,那就不如说他就是骄慢。
因为他如果不骄慢的话,就没办法生活下去,就会觉得“我这样怎么能往生?”所以,他就给自己鼓气说“我一定能往生,因为我在努力地修行,因为我很虔诚”等等,这样让自己感到安心。这都是不可靠的,一定要“以果地觉,为因地心”才可靠。
有的念佛老太太,什么都没有,字都不认识;但她知道有六字名号,这里面有金刚信心,这就是尊贵的念佛人。释迦牟尼佛说她是人中芬陀利花,没有说认识很多字是人中芬陀利花。因为往生极乐世界不需要认识字,认识字也不能成为金刚信心。
“因该果海,果彻因源”,“因该果海”,“该”是该罗、该摄,就是众生这一念的信心——信顺阿弥陀佛、愿往生的信愿心,把阿弥陀佛果地犹如大海一样的智慧功德通通包含了,在我们一念信心当中都有了,没有一点欠缺。
所以“速满足功德大宝海”,不仅仅是到极乐世界去速满足,也是现在这一念因心就已经满足了,不过还没有完全兑现出来。就好像《无量寿经》所说的:
其有得闻彼佛名号,
欢喜踊跃乃至一念,
当知此人为得大利,
则是具足无上功德。
一念之间得无上功德,这不就是“因该果海”吗?
蕅益大师《弥陀要解》也说:
一声阿弥陀佛,即释迦本师于五浊恶世所得之阿耨多罗三藐三菩提法。今以此果觉,全体授与浊恶众生,乃诸佛所行境界,唯佛与佛能究尽,非九界自力所能信解也。
释迦牟尼佛成佛,得无上阿耨多罗三藐三菩提,就得了这一句“南无阿弥陀佛”名号。今以此全部的果觉,给我们五浊恶世的众生;我们当下称名,功德、福德、智慧跟阿弥陀佛平等。这不就是因该果海吗?
“果彻因源”是什么意思呢?阿弥陀佛的果地觉悟,完全贯彻在凡夫一念的因心当中,贯彻在源头。
我们还没有往生,还是在起源的地方,我们初发心,这一念愿意往生的心,阿弥陀佛的果地觉悟当下就贯彻进来了。
这样,凡夫和佛完全吻合,我们在凡夫身的时候,就充满了阿弥陀佛六字名号的功德,怎么不往生?五逆众生也没问题,决定可以往生!
我们讲来讲去,就是告诉大家:往生极乐世界是免费的,极乐世界是无条件送给你的。阿弥陀佛说:“欢迎你,邀请你,拜托你,请你来往生。如果你不来,我下一次再请。”
摘自《净土宗概论讲记》

南无阿弥陀佛六字名号做成了我们往生的信愿心

二零一四淨土大經科註  (第一集)

二零一四淨土大經科註  (第一集)  2014/3/9  香港佛陀教育協會  檔名:02-041-0001

       諸位法師,諸位同學,大家好,請坐。今天是二0一四年三月九日,我們開始第四次的學習《大經科註》。每一次的學習都幫助我們自己向上提升。我們自從二0一0年清明講第一回,完全依照黃念老居士的集解,用了一千二百個小時講圓滿。在第二回我們把科判會進去,也就是我們現在用的這個本子,《佛說大乘無量壽莊嚴清淨平等覺經科註》。第三回昨天圓滿,八號圓滿。今天我們接著講第四回,希望我們第四回的圓滿無比的殊勝。
       我們得到海賢老和尚的加持,為我們作證,幫助我們堅定信願,我們對這個科註,對我們現在學習的方式,不再產生懷疑,信心堅定,願心堅固,決定在這一生當中求生淨土。我更希望同學們真正發心,我們取得西方淨土,就在這次第四回,這一年當中完成。完成之後,生死自在,想什麼時候去就什麼時候去,沒有罣礙。不管是壽命到還是不到,都得自在。壽命沒有到,不要了,可以提前往生;壽命是到了,我們還想在這個世間表法,那是阿彌陀佛最歡喜的一樁事情,他會延長你壽命。所以我們相信,真相信,沒有懷疑,海賢老和尚活了一百一十二歲,那不是他本來的壽命,是阿彌陀佛幫他延長了。這個老和尚自己給我們說明的,他是見過阿彌陀佛,我相信不止一次,每一次見到佛,都希望佛帶他到極樂世界,佛告訴他時節因緣還沒到,你要留在世間表法。表什麼法?就表告訴世人,夏蓮居老居士的會集本是真經,不是假的,應當要尊重,應當要認真學習;黃念祖老居士的註解是稀有難逢的以經證經,以祖師大德的開示為我們解釋淨宗法門,讓我們對於極樂世界、對於阿彌陀佛有更深刻的認識,我們的信心、願心才能發得出來。
       有信、有願就是蕅益大師所說的,往生淨土的條件具足了。大師說,能不能往生完全決定在信願之有無,說得這麼清楚,說得這麼明白;往生的品位,那是念佛功夫的淺深,沒有說是多少。功夫淺深怎麼算?是你信的成分,你願的成分。徹底相信,沒有絲毫懷疑,這個功夫就深;還有一點懷疑,或者對這個世間還有一點留戀,這個功夫就淺。這個世間徹底放下,一心專念,這個功夫就深。我們要求自己的功夫深,要求自己的願心大,這一年當中希望我們心同佛心(跟阿彌陀佛一個心),願同佛願,行同佛行。阿彌陀佛自己是天天念阿彌陀佛,我們念一尊阿彌陀佛,阿彌陀佛念遍法界虛空界一切眾生個個都是阿彌陀佛,這叫「彌陀念彌陀」。這是夏蓮居老居士告訴我們的,在《淨修捷要》裡頭。
       我們展開《科註》,這個會本一百三十七頁,第一大段,「甲、講述因緣」,過去講過三遍了。「蓮社授經」,這個蓮社是台中佛教蓮社,我在台中跟李老師學習佛法。老師這部《大乘無量壽經》的會集本,律航法師從大陸到台灣帶來幾本,供養給李老師,老師將它翻印了,翻印多少我不知道,我估計大概是一、二千冊的樣子,不會太多。他老人家在台中法華寺講過一遍,將這部經段落勾出來,段落就是科判,裡面的義理有簡單的解釋,都寫在經本空白的地方,這我們中國稱為眉註。老人講這部經我沒聽過,在我認識他之前講的,這一遍之後他就沒有再講了。我在台中,老師就把這個本子給我了。我知道許許多多的人沒有見過這個本子,老師眉註的本子,沒有人見過。這個會集本在台中是流通,分量也不多,知道的人很少。在慈光圖書館,老師第二次講《無量壽經》,用的是康僧鎧的本子,就是五種譯本裡頭的《魏譯》,這個本子我從頭到尾聽過一遍。五種原譯本,三種會集本,還有彭際清的節校本,一共中文《大乘無量壽經》是有九個版本。這個版本是九個版本最後出來的版本,可以說是《無量壽經》的善本,五種原譯本裡面所說的全在這部裡頭,統統收在裡頭,重複的部分剔除,留下來是精華,五種原譯本的精華。真正像梅光羲老居士所說的,《無量壽經》的善本出現在中華大地,這是中國人的福報。慧明法師為夏蓮居老居士作證。慧老是當時佛門裡面通宗通教、顯密圓融的大德,也是一位講經教學的老和尚,他肯定夏老的會集本是善本,勸勉大家要認真的學習。我在慈光圖書館前後住了十年,經教是在這個地方養成的。
       我在年輕的時候喜歡讀書,學得很雜、學得很多,所以對於常識這部分很豐富,真正的義理沒有契入。我學習最早是跟方東美先生學哲學,方老師為我講了一部哲學概論,最後一個單元是佛經哲學,我從這個課程裡面認識了佛法,認識了佛教,知道佛教跟一般宗教不一樣。一般宗教是神教,佛教是師教,不相同。我們用道來說,佛教是師道,一般宗教是神道。釋迦牟尼佛跟我們的關係是師生關係,不是神跟人的關係,是老師跟學生的關係,所以我們稱釋迦牟尼佛為本師,你看「南無本師釋迦牟尼佛」。釋迦牟尼佛又勸我們,要依西方極樂世界阿彌陀佛為老師,將來到極樂世界親近阿彌陀佛。這是釋迦牟尼佛的教誨,我們完全聽了、接受了,佛歡喜。釋迦牟尼佛好比是我們的父母,勸我們到極樂世界去跟這個老師學習,我們聽話,真去了,父母歡喜!有這樣一個好老師教你,你決定成就。所以認識了它是師道,它不是神道。
       佛教裡面稱佛陀、稱菩薩、稱阿羅漢,這統統是梵語音譯過來的,所以我們對於這些名詞的含義,一定要有清晰的概念。佛陀是什麼意思?梵文的原意是覺者,就是覺悟的人,一個真正有智慧、有覺悟的人,這稱佛陀。第二個學位菩薩,菩薩有覺悟、有智慧,但是沒有圓滿,他還在學習。但是菩薩畢業了、學圓滿了就叫佛陀;還沒有畢業,還沒有達到圓滿,稱菩薩。第三個學位是阿羅漢,阿羅漢是剛剛開竅,剛開始覺悟,當然他覺悟的程度比不上菩薩。阿羅漢是剛剛開悟,明白宇宙人生真相,但是他明白的比不上菩薩。阿羅漢、菩薩都有等級,他們還讀書,一年級、二年級、三年級,阿羅漢是小學,菩薩是大學,所以有等級的。《華嚴經》上將菩薩分為五十一個等級,五十一個等級裡面最前面十個叫十信位,那就是阿羅漢。等於說佛教的小學,有十個等級,一年級、二年級、三年級,到十年級小學畢業,小學畢業證阿羅漢果。大乘呢?大乘一共有,往上去有四十一個位次是大乘,那就上了大學。大學有四十一年級,這四十一年級前面的十年級好比是中學,叫十住。但是為什麼叫大學?他用真心,他明心見性,明心見性不能算中學、小學,真正是大學,大學裡頭有四十一個階級。這個經裡頭都講得非常清楚,特別是念老的註解,註得很詳細。
       我是老師勸我學淨土,在李老師之前我認識懺雲法師,他也勸我學淨土,我都沒有接受。但是我對於淨土法門不毀謗,為什麼?它是佛說的。佛說出來的,我要毀謗,那是謗佛,這是決定錯誤的。佛開這麼多法門,度這麼多眾生,各人學的法門並不相同,那是每個人根性不一樣,愛好不一樣。所以佛的教學不勉強一個人,你喜歡哪個法門他就教你哪個法門,佛法開明。我們年輕,自以為是知識分子,把念佛法門看成老太婆教,這一句佛號,一年到頭都念這個,這什麼?這沒有滋味,與自己的根性不相合。喜歡研究經教,經教裡有豐富的義理,對這個特別有興趣。所以淨土也只有略微讚歎,沒有起心動念去學習它。真正信淨土是「華嚴啟信,決擇行門」。
       我三個老師,當中還有個章嘉大師,方老師教我認識佛法,正確的認識,沒有誤會;章嘉大師教我發心學佛,我也很歡喜,他教我學釋迦牟尼佛,這是我們心地上嚮往的。釋迦牟尼佛四十九年講經教學,說出這麼多的經論,我們後人對他無限的羨慕、尊重、愛戴。章嘉大師還勸我出家,因為我在台灣,一個人在台灣,沒有障礙。我第一部看的關於佛的書籍,章嘉大師教的,叫我看《釋迦譜》、《釋迦方志》,這兩本書就是釋迦牟尼佛的傳記。他告訴我,學佛如果對佛不認識會走錯路,你一定要認識他、了解他,你才能跟他學習。我想這個很有道理。這兩樣書讀完之後才曉得,那時心裡想的是,佛教不應該稱為宗教,因為用現在宗教裡面的定義來看佛教,佛教跟它不相應,宗教第一個就是要有一個創造宇宙的神,佛教沒有。佛教說有天神、有鬼神,這些神跟我們人的地位是平等的,就好像我們中國人看到外國人,他也是人。宇宙之間確實有天神、有鬼神,它承認他們存在,並不承認他們創造宇宙,他也是眾生。所以統統歸納為眾生,眾緣和合而生起的現象,講十大類,這十大類統是眾緣和合,佛是的,菩薩也是的,聲聞、緣覺都是的;下面六道,天人是的,人也是的,阿修羅也是的,地獄、餓鬼、畜生,統統都是眾緣和合而生起的。所以佛法講整個宇宙的來源、緣起,不是哪一個人創造,連神的存在也是緣起的。這個跟科學所講的相應,所以佛經裡頭有科學,不但有科學,而且有圓滿的科學。
       方老師是學哲學的,他告訴我,「釋迦牟尼佛是世界上最偉大的哲學家,佛經是世界上哲學的最高峰」,不但它是哲學的書本,哲學書本裡頭最高的,高等哲學,告訴我「學佛是人生最高的享受」,引起我們學佛的興趣,這個東西太好了,太難得了。所以我遇到章嘉大師,這是佛門的大德、大善知識,專搞佛法的,我就跟他學了。我跟方老師大概是半年,跟章嘉大師三年,大師圓寂了。我跟他的時候,我二十六歲,他老人家是六十五歲,他六十八歲走的,所以我只跟他三年,這三年他給我奠定佛學基礎。後面有十年我離開工作,接受章嘉大師的教誨,出家,專門來修學佛法,佛教裡面的大乘,這是章嘉大師對我的期望。辭掉工作之後,朱鏡宙老居士、懺雲法師介紹我認識李老師,送我到台中去學習經教,在台中跟李老師十年,經教奠定了基礎。我三十三歲出家,出家就教佛學院,就開始對外講經。我還記得我第一次以出家身分在外面講經是台東佛教蓮社,那個時候的社長是明訓法師,跟我是師兄弟,他在那裡建了個道場,邀請我去講經,我記得我第一部講的經是《阿難問事佛吉凶經》。
       「決擇行門」,真正決定行門修淨土,接受李老師的勸告,是「華嚴啟信」的。我們年輕學經教的時候,最佩服的《華嚴經》,這是大乘一部大經,裡面的內容太豐富了。《華嚴》講什麼?講全宇宙萬事萬物的真相,就是一切法的真相。從宇宙生命的源起講到我們現前,講到我們的將來,它全講到了,圓滿的哲學,圓滿的科學,在科學、哲學兩方面都達到登峰造極。這被現代的量子科學家承認了,最近這二、三十年來,量子物理學家有很大的進展,揭穿了宇宙的奧祕。這些發現大乘經上全有,換句話說,他們的新發現,釋迦牟尼佛發現這個超過三千年,三千年前佛發現了,三千年之後他們才發現,發現一對比、一對照,完全相同。
       說到「專修專弘」,必須要具備的條件,「不懷疑、不夾雜、不間斷」。這三樁事情難,難能可貴,真正做到了,沒有一個不成就。做到必須要具足三個條件,第一個老實,第二個聽話,第三個真幹。我拜李老師,第一天跟他見面,那一年我三十一歲,老師提出三個條件,三個條件如果我能接受,他就留我在台中跟他學習,如果不能接受他不收留,你另求高明。這三個什麼條件?第一個,你過去所學的,就是說我跟方老師學的、跟章嘉大師所學的他不承認,完全作廢,從今天起你要跟我學,完全聽我的,這第一個條件。第二個條件,要跟我學,台中這個地區任何法師大德來講經教學,沒有得到我的同意,你不准去聽。你看,第一個,我學得很簡單,不複雜,只跟兩個老師,那兩個老師所講的他不承認,要聽他的,其他的任何人講經教學不可以去聽。文字,無論是佛經、是世間文字,沒有經過他同意不可以看,我要看的東西先向他報告,他點頭才行,不點頭不可以看。不准你聽,不准你看,完全聽他一個人指導,他對我要負完全責任。我最後想想,我還是接受了。
       接受就留在台中,三個月之後感覺得受用了,得什麼受用?心清淨了。很多東西不准看、不准聽,心清淨,心清淨就生智慧,這中國古老的教學法。我們當時聽老師這三個條件,感到老師太跋扈,好像目中無人一樣。到二十多年之後,我到新加坡遇到演培法師,也是老朋友了,他告訴我,他是從小出家的,小沙彌,在諦閑老和尚會下,老和尚也是講這三條。我才恍然大悟,不是李老師的專利,原來是過去祖宗教學,世世代代都是守著這個規矩。你不聽老師的你跟他幹什麼?跟他就真正聽他的話。聽兩個人的你就會產生問題,聽三個、四個人就亂掉了,不可以,絕對不可以。只能聽一個人的,老師對你完全負責任。你要是多聽,老師不負責任,那是什麼?你來旁聽。你什麼都聽,腦子是亂的,心定不下來、靜不下來,必須要專一,這才行。我們完全接受老師之後,老師最後宣布有期限的,不是無期限的,多長久?五年,五年之內你一定要遵守,五年之後等於畢業,就開放了。我深得利益,到第五年,我跟老師報告,我說老師,我還願意再守五年。老師笑起來了。守住老師的原則,把自己的根紮穩,五年我覺得時間不夠,所以我用十年。嘗到這個滋味了,現在一般人沒有。
       老師要看的學生沒有別的,什麼條件?就是老實、聽話、真幹,你能夠有這樣的條件,他願意教你。我跟方老師的緣分也是很特殊,跟他不認識,沒有人介紹。我看到一些介紹他的資料,知道這個人是當代的哲學家,知名度很高。一看他是桐城人,同鄉,我就很冒昧的寫封信給他,寄了一篇文章給他看,唯一一個目的就是希望他同意我能到學校去旁聽他的課。我這個信寄出去一個星期他回信給我,約我到他家裡見面。到他家裡見面,是同鄉,閒話家常,我對老家還記得一些。問我學歷,抗戰期間到處流浪,沒有辦法讀書,逃難,日本人追在後頭,失學三年,三年沒念書,所以我只有初中畢業,高中念了半年就到台灣來,再也沒有機會讀書。到台灣人地生疏,一個人,要靠自己勞力去生活,非常辛苦。老師問我,他說你寫的信、寫的這篇文章,我們台大的學生寫不出來,所以他才問我的學歷,有沒有欺騙他?我說沒有。我說雖然我失學三年,但是喜歡讀書,我一生沒有離開書本,完全靠自學。談了一個多小時,最後他告訴我,他說現在的學校(六十年前,我二十六歲,六十四年以前),學校先生不像先生,學生不像學生,你要到學校去聽課,你會大失所望。當時我聽不懂,我以為老師完全拒絕了,不要我到學校聽課,所以表現當然很沮喪、很難過。我們沉默了六、七分鐘,他說這樣好了,你每個星期天到我家裡來,我們約定九點半到十一點半,兩個小時。每個星期星期天到他家裡,他給我上兩個鐘點課,我的課是在他家裡上的。為什麼?我是好多年之後才明白,老師在學校上課不講真東西了。為什麼不講?沒人學,就是說學生不像學生,老師想教也枉然。為什麼還上課?他以這個為職業,他不教書就沒生活,靠這個過日子的。但是學生沒有一個真正想學的,真正想學的,你看他開特別班,叫我到他家裡上課,而且不收學費的,真教你。
       這是好老師,看到真正可以教的學生不放棄,他的東西可以傳下去。「不孝有三,無後為大」,古人的教訓。一個人在世間,最重要的是什麼?要有傳人,你的道、你的事業要有人繼承,一代一代傳下去,這才對得起父母、對得起祖先、對得起老師。如果傳不下去,你自己做得再輝煌,你死了,一切就完了,等於零,這是大不孝。哪一個老師都想求傳法的人,到哪裡去找?可遇不可求。學生找老師難,老師找學生更難,找不到!偶然發現一個二個,他把他看作珍寶,希望他有恆心、有耐心,能傳他的道、傳他的法。我多少年之後常常想這個事情,為什麼當時不讓我到學校聽課,才明白老師的意思。從這裡紮下的根,以後專攻佛法。他告訴我,佛經哲學是全世界哲學的最高峰。章嘉大師指導我,也是每個星期一個小時到二個小時,學生只有一個,一對一的教學。參加李老師的經學班,他正式開班,有二十多個同學。一般講經,普通接引初機的,能夠講的,有二、三十個人。深入堅持到底的就不多了,只有五、六個人,到最後只剩下三、二個人還堅持的,可見這個事情不容易。
       「專修專弘,念佛三要:不懷疑、不夾雜、不間斷」,鍥而不捨。「流通疏註,廣結勝緣」。我們學習印光祖師,祖師一生接受四眾同學的供養,在家二眾、出家二眾,這些供養他沒有拿去改善他的生活,完全用在印經弘法利生上、救濟災難;主要是印經,遇到有重大災難的時候,從印經基金裡面提出一部分去賑災。印祖教我們這個方法,這個方法好。財從哪裡來的?財從布施來的,愈施愈多,我學佛這六十多年。章嘉大師,我第一次跟他見面,向他老人家請教,方老師給我講佛經哲學,我對佛教認識、明白了,佛教是大學問,真實智慧,我向他老人家請教,佛門裡面有沒有好的方法,讓我很快能夠契入境界。我問的這個問題是大問題,他聽了看著我,我也看著他,等他的開示,我們看了半個多小時,一句話也沒有。半個多小時之後,幾乎好像在定中境界一樣,都入定了,說了一個字,有。半個鐘點說了一個有,我就很興奮,精神振作起來,他又不說話了。又等了七、八分鐘,說了六個字,「看得破,放得下」。看破幫助放下,放下幫助看破,從初發心到如來地,就是這兩樣東西相輔相成。我那時初入門,學佛才二、三個月,什麼也不懂,所以他對我完全用通俗的語言,讓我一聽就明白,如果用佛經的術語我就不懂了。這是什麼?看破、放下,大乘裡頭的止觀,看破是觀,明瞭事實真相,放下是止,把妄想分別執著放下,大乘修學就如是。
       海賢老和尚他做了九十年,看破放下、放下看破,他做了九十年,做出最好的榜樣來給我們看。我看得懂,我佩服他,他真的一門深入,就是一句阿彌陀佛。這一句阿彌陀佛是放下,放下萬緣。這一句阿彌陀佛幫助你看破,也幫助你放下,妙極了!老和尚不認識字,沒有念過書,沒有聽過經,也沒有參過禪,他什麼都知道。那是為什麼?我肯定他得念佛三昧,開悟了。他也曾經跟人說過,他什麼都知道,就是不說話。為什麼不說?沒有人願意聽。就跟方東美先生所說的,他在學校為什麼不講真東西?學生不肯學,講是白講,講廢話。世出世間真正好老師應機施教,學生是什麼樣的根性就要怎樣教他,不是一樣的。李老師的經學班二十幾個同學,他教每一個人有不同的方法,不是一個方法教一班人,不是的,他個別教學。就像古時候私塾裡頭一樣個別教學,下根人教你很淺顯的東西,倫理、道德、因果;中上根人教你佛法,不一樣。每個人學的經論不相同。經論誰選的?自己選,選了老師點頭就可以,你自己實在選不出來他代你選。總是讓你自己選擇,你自己喜歡,契機。老師點頭給你做證明,你就好好的學一樣,一門深入,長時薰修。絕對不許可同時學兩樣東西,那是很大的忌諱。為什麼?你分心,你用心不專,你很難得受用。一定要專心、要一致,決定不能懷疑、不能夾雜。不夾雜就是一門,這一門不能間斷。
       學這部經的時候,經有長短不一樣,老師那個時候教我們這班學生,學了要上台去講,最短的不能少過三次,最多的不要超過十次,一個星期講一次,十次就是兩個月。一個星期講一次,要寫講稿,所以學習的時候很辛苦,但是非常有受用。全心全力專注在那裡,如果經年累月不間斷,哪有不成功的道理!間斷就不行,三個月不學生疏了,半年不學忘光了,一天都不能間斷。我不是上上根人,中下根人,累積了六十年的經驗,六十年不中斷才有這樣的成就。斷斷續續的決定不可能,斷掉之後再續不起來了,很困難,所以不可以間斷。「流通疏註」,要講解,講一遍比我們聽十遍的效果還要殊勝,很多事情沒想到的,在講的時候會發現、會領悟到。
       釋迦牟尼佛說法只有一個目的,幫助一切眾生離苦得樂。佛教什麼?佛教我們離苦得樂,這是佛菩薩在世間唯一一個目的。佛知道,眾生苦從哪裡來的?從迷惑顛倒來的;樂從哪裡來的?樂從明白來的、覺悟來的。所以苦樂是果報,因呢?因是迷悟,迷了就苦,覺悟了就樂。於是佛用什麼方法幫助人離苦得樂?用教學,教學幫助你破迷開悟,迷破了苦就離開,覺悟了樂就來。開悟就自在快樂,那個樂不是欲望的刺激,是從內心裡頭流出來的歡喜。孔子所謂的「學而時習之,不亦說乎」,你學,能夠把學的東西,習就是落實,我悟出來的,覺悟的,能夠用在生活上、用在工作上、用在處事待人接物,快樂!那什麼?智慧現前。有智慧的人樂,沒有智慧的人苦。
       智慧是我們本有的,《華嚴經》上釋迦牟尼佛說得好,「一切眾生皆有如來智慧德相」,所以智慧、福德、相好都是自性裡頭本來有的。有多少?無量無邊無數,取之不盡,用之不竭,用十萬年、百萬年、千萬年、萬萬年,無量壽都用不盡,太多了。自性有的,不是從外來的。怎麼樣才能夠把自性的智慧德相全顯出來?祕訣就是看破、放下。看破是了解事實真相,放下是放下一切障礙、一切染污,回歸到自性就證得大圓滿。大圓滿是什麼?極樂世界。我們往生到極樂世界,極樂世界是阿彌陀佛變現的,同時也是我們自己自性變現的,這個要知道。我們自性裡沒有極樂世界,阿彌陀佛不能建立,我們也不能往生。我們自性裡頭有,不是從外來的,我們自性跟阿彌陀佛是一個性,所以他能建造,我能到那邊去享受。為什麼?是一體,不是兩樁事情,一回事,這個不能不相信。
       所以要全心全力「廣結勝緣」,勝是殊勝,我們一般講善緣。勝是智慧所結的,善惡裡頭還有感情,也就是還帶著染污,不帶任何染污,這殊勝。所以我們知道佛說法的目的,是讓人離苦得樂,佛用的方法是破迷開悟,完全落實在教學。教學,一定要接受教學的人能夠信受奉行,他就得到利益;他不能相信、不能接受、不能落實,那只是阿賴耶裡頭落謝種子,這一生得不到受用。如果信受奉行,這一生決定得利益,不分男女老少。
       我們看到一個信息,二、三個月以前,一個小女孩十歲念佛往生,了不起,沒有生病,跟海賢法師一樣預知時至,沒有生病。這個孩子也念了三年,就一句南無阿彌陀佛。七歲,她父母都學佛,爸爸在念《彌陀經》,她好奇,問她爸爸你念什麼?他說念《阿彌陀經》。什麼叫《阿彌陀經》?爸爸就把極樂世界簡簡單單的講給她聽,她聽了很高興:這麼好的地方,爸爸你能不能帶我去看看?爸爸說我不行。她說誰行?阿彌陀佛。阿彌陀佛在哪裡?妳念阿彌陀佛,阿彌陀佛就會帶妳去。她一聽高興了,她天天念阿彌陀佛,念了三年。往生的前一天告訴她爸爸:爸爸,明天阿彌陀佛要來接我回老家,能不能請我們的朋友、鄰居們,到家裡來看我往生?第二天真往生了,沒生病,說走就走,十歲的小孩。
       海賢老和尚的母親,八十六歲往生,預知時至。她本來跟海賢法師一起住在廟裡的,這一天突然說我要回老家,老和尚攔也攔不住,就陪她一起回老家。回到老家吩咐他把女兒、姪女都找來,都來了,他媽媽包餃子,親自包餃子請大家吃。吃完之後,坐在旁邊一個椅子上,盤腿,盤腿坐著,告訴大家我要走了,這句話說完頭一歪真走了,沒生病。自行化他,這個樣子就感動很多人,讓很多念佛人生起信心。
       念佛人,生知道從哪裡來,死知道到哪裡去,快樂,一絲毫憂慮沒有,一絲毫恐怖沒有。在這個世界任務完成了,自己的功德圓滿,度化眾生告一個段落,我在這個段落完成我的任務。海賢老和尚最後一個任務,就是表僧讚僧這個法。你看,人家把這個書送給他,他一看到像寶貝一樣,無量的歡喜。那是什麼?他最後一個表法的來了,這個表了之後,他就可以走了。拿到這本書,穿袍搭衣,告訴大家,你們大家給我照相,無比的歡喜,三天之後就走了。為我們作證轉,這三轉法輪裡頭示轉、勸轉,最後作證轉,他們是來作證的。我們是來勸的,把這樁事情講清楚講明白,勸導大家,要信、要發願、要念佛。他是一生表演給我們看,一句佛號念了九十年。
       念三年就能往生,念九十年哪有不能往生!我們深深相信他跟阿彌陀佛多次見面,就像慧遠大師一樣。遠公當年在世,四次見阿彌陀佛,從來沒有告訴過人。第四次是接引往生,他才告訴大家,他見到極樂世界、見到阿彌陀佛、見到老同修,已經往生的同修,都在阿彌陀佛的身邊來迎接他,這是他應該要去了。別人問他,這個境界以前有沒有見過?他說見過,以前見過三次。什麼樣子的?極樂世界什麼樣子?跟《無量壽經》講的完全相同。這就一點差錯都沒有。經幫助我們深信、發願,念佛求生;經也給我們證明你去的地方正確的,跟經上所講的一樣。如果不一樣,那不是極樂世界,那不是阿彌陀佛;完全相同,我們真正信得過。
       這個後面寫的,「遵師教誨,海外傳燈,化解劫難,唯獨此經」。這個經我第一遍在溫哥華講的,加拿大,第二遍在美國加州聖荷西講的。我跟海外有緣,這個緣是從慈光講座來的,慈光大專佛學講座;第二個,道安老法師在台北佛教會也辦了一個大專佛學講座,這兩個講座我都參與,所以我認識大專學生很多。這些學生以後畢業了,到外國去留學拿到學位,在外國定居,散居在全世界各大城市。這些同學跟我緣很深,我一出國他們都邀請,所以海外的緣就非常殊勝。
       沒有想到二000年,我移民到澳大利亞,在澳洲幫助政府團結族群、團結宗教,跟澳洲的大學常常往來。因為澳洲把這兩樁事情委託給大學去落實,我跟大學的關係非常密切,跟學校的領導人常見面,所以他對我很了解。九一一事件之後,兩個學校的校長來找我,到他們學校參加一個座談會,這個座談會專門討論化解衝突,促進社會安定和平,討論這個問題,與會的都是學校的教授,和平學院教授,十幾位教授。我首先聽他們報告,然後我解答他們的問題,這次會議開得很成功、很歡喜。第二個星期學校又邀我,我都沒想到,他們學校正式聘請我做和平學院的教授,贈送我學位,我說我們出家人,這東西沒用處。我說你們舉行座談會我倒挺歡喜的,跟大家來聊聊天,討論討論一些問題,你們邀請我都會來參加,這些名義都可以不要。校長勸我一定要。我說為什麼?希望我代表學校、代表澳洲政府參加聯合國的和平會議,聯合國邀請的都是專家、學者、教授,你必須要有身分。我這樣才接受了,因為這是大事情不是小事情,這是為世界和平。佛菩薩大慈大悲,救苦救難,沒有這個緣,我們不攀緣,有這個緣不能推卸,所以我就接受了。
       參與聯合國的活動,對出家人講大開眼界,以前沒見過,也沒有想到過,這真正參加這個活動,先後參加了十幾次,接觸這些人,了解事實真相。我了解的比他們深,這個世界動亂的危機從哪裡來的,根是什麼,他們都沒看到。我說只有一樁事情,信心,我們把信心失掉了,沒有信心,這個事情麻煩。小孩在家裡頭他信誰?他信他的爸爸媽媽,別人講話他不相信,爸爸媽媽講他相信,這小孩能成長,他有信心;如果連爸爸媽媽都不相信,孩子完了。我們今天不相信老祖宗,不相信倫理道德,不相信因果,在宗教裡頭不相信神,認為那是迷信,怎麼辦?相信科學,科學解決不了問題,科學製造這些問題,而不能解決問題,怎麼辦?我們把這東西提出來,他們不能接受。聽了很歡喜,告訴我,法師你講得很好,但這是理想,做不到。因為這些反應,才讓我們覺得非做實驗不可,不然他不能相信。
       我們二00五年的年底,在湯池辦的傳統文化的教學,就是做實驗給他們看的。我覺得這是我們祖宗保佑,三寶加持,沒有想到它那麼快。我們跟一些老師們研究,大概都是預想的要做二年到三年才能做出成績來,沒有想到三個月成績卓著。所以我跟老師們講,我們決定不敢居功,不要認為自己有能力,我們自己沒有能力、沒有智慧、沒有道德。為什麼會做成功?祖宗之德,三寶加持,才有這麼好的成績做出來。所以我要求大家要存感恩的心,不能有絲毫傲慢,要感謝老祖宗,要感謝三寶,要感謝當地人民的支持,我們教他真肯幹,做出這麼好的成績。所以二00六年十月,我們在聯合國做報告,我們的聲音就大了。為什麼?你說我這不能兌現,我兌現了,我做出來了,讓這些專家學者,參加大會的這些會友們感到非常驚訝,個個都想到湯池去考察,親自來看看。
       中國傳統東西真正能幫助我們解決現實的問題,就是社會的衝突,如何恢復社會安定和諧,中國傳統的教學可以做到。我們只用了三個東西,《弟子規》、《感應篇》、《十善業》,就這三樣。要求老師自己先做到,自己做不到叫別人去做,人家不相信。一定要自己做到,自己做到了別人相信,那個教育會成功。所以我舉了兩個例子,我說我們這個世界上,自古以來教學最成功的,有兩個人給我們做榜樣,第一個釋迦牟尼佛,他教學四十九年,第二個孔夫子,教學五年。為什麼收到那麼大的效果?沒有別的,他做到了,祕訣就在此地。所以我們要想教學成功,自己一定先做到,自己做不到不要說,做到了再說,就能成功。
       這些年來,湯池雖然沒有繼續辦下去,但是它的影響力,影響國內,影響全世界。今年真正讓我們意想不到,印尼回教國家,世界上最大的回教國家,他們政府教育部今年七月,現在是三月,七月正式對全國中小學展開《弟子規》的教學。他們將蔡禮旭老師的《細講弟子規》,四十個小時細說,把這本書翻成印尼文,提供給老師們做參考。回教大學正式要開辦四庫館,要增設一個漢學院,培養研究中國古典的學術,就是儒釋道三家的專家學者,也是給儒釋道培養師資,真難得!這都是這些年我們在海外做的一些成績。
       「化解劫難,唯獨此經」。這部經,李老師往生之後,這個十年來,我用李老師的眉註講過十遍,用黃念祖老居士的集解,這是第四遍。一年講一遍,一天四個小時,這一部講圓滿大概一千二百多個小時。我們第三回講圓滿,這是第四回。第三回講圓滿,一共用了一千二百八十八個小時。天天在勸自己、勸別人,要跟阿彌陀佛同心同願,同德同行,問題解決,災難自然化解。
       這部經,特別在這第四回我們再學習,有幾十位志同道合的同學們在一起。我們這次的學習,主要的工作是將《科註》訂正,因為裡頭還有一些錯誤,做成一個圓滿的本子,可以正式流通。第二個,我們要認真努力,經典裡面所說的道理變成我們的思想,經典裡面的教訓變成我們的生活行為,我們要把它完全落實在自己身心這兩方面,這個收穫就大了!第四回我們的目標定在此地,換句話說,這一年的時間我們把它學圓滿,至少有一樁事情,我提醒大家,生死自在,要完成這個任務。我想往生真能去得了,我想再多住幾年不礙事。住幾年幹什麼?為大家表法,表法就是做最好的樣子給大家看,真正是智慧的樣子、解脫的樣子、快樂的樣子,極樂世界!做好榜樣給別人看,讓別人對這個法門、對這個經典都能生起信心,都能歡歡喜喜依照這個方法來修行,成就自己,成就一切眾生,滿足阿彌陀佛度眾生的大願。
       「感得經解」。經,會集本,夏蓮居老居士用了十年時間。他老人家有兩句話說,「濁世無如念佛好,此生端為大經來」,可見得他來到這個世間幹什麼的?就是會集這部經的,這是他的任務。黃念祖老居士來他也有任務,為這個經做個註解,他用了六年時間,整整六年。蓮公會集,黃念祖老居士集註,我們對於這兩個人生起信心,我們沒有懷疑,深信不疑;我們深入,一遍一遍深入求解。中國古人所說的「一門深入,長時薰修」,我們把一切經放下,一門深入。不但在解門我們不斷在求,行門對於解門有很大的幫助,真正能做到會幫助我們自見其義,經典裡面深奧的義趣,我們能體會到,自己能悟到,不必求別人講解。我們修行重點放在哪裡?放在清淨心、平等心、覺心。經題上「清淨平等覺」是我們自己的真心,我們要回歸到這個真心,我們的覺悟跟佛沒有兩樣。這是修行的總目標、總的核心,清淨平等覺。「願海同證,一門深入」。一門深入、長時薰修是教學的理念;讀書千遍,其義自見,這是入門的方法。自見就是大悟,大徹大悟,上根利智就明心見性,中下根性的人一定有大悟。大悟,很多沒有學過的、沒有經歷過的,全都明白,全都知道。
       下面,第二段是「前言」,前言是黃念祖老居士所寫的,在學習這部經之前,把全經的義趣給我們做一個簡單的介紹,對於我們學習這部經會有非常濃厚的興趣。第四次講述,我們基本的不改變,完全依夏蓮居老居士的會集本,我們早年學習的時候有個科判,黃念祖老居士的註解。他的註解是會集一百九十三種資料,提供給我們做參考,讓我們認識淨土、認識極樂世界、認識阿彌陀佛,我們的信心、願心才能真正的發出來,有願心、有信心就決定得生淨土,我們才能歡喜念佛。一切時、一切處佛號不要離開心裡頭,心裡頭時時刻刻都是佛,成就我們往生的品位,我們這一生沒有空過、沒有白來,真正成就了。今天時間到了,我們就學習到此地。

Keep cool

Lim said :" yesterday I was so angry because of one of the colleagues challenging me. As the security supervisor I felt humiliated and I also burst out at that moment.
This colleague is ready the trouble maker. Early morning , this colleague I called him Mr. Hot. He said day shift Mr. O not coming to work according to information from his good friend Mr. A. I acknowledged it.
Later Mr. Hot told me to tell the day shift lady Mr. S to take over him. That's ok.
At about 7.10 am, this trouble maker Mr. Hot asked me who going to replace Mr. O. I told him so far I never receive any message from Mr. O officially, normally he will message manager , he will only message me if the manager never responded. After I said this, this Mr. Hot said : " As the supervisor you should know who is coming to replace him."
At that moment my mind thinking this idiot Mr. Hot tried to tell me what to do, I became agitated.
At 0715am, I received message drom Mr. O " who is coming?.I asjed him if you called manager, he said :" Yes, no response.| I was thinking this : In the first place you never message me, then later the message was who was coming. I also not bother to answer him but I messaged Manager that who was coming to replace  him. In flat one officer already reported to site, Manager said : no man, going to find."
At 0730 am, one technician came down and he said Mr. Hot made so much noise at the counter, what happened. At that time the day shift supervisor ( Mr. hot's good friend ) also entered. I said that fellow made so much noise because Mr. O only messaged me at 0715am, how i know who is coming? this Mr. Hot so hot and of course I can not keep quiet and I also become hot.|Fucking idiot.|    
At 0740 am I about to go home and I saw Mr. Hot. I said| : just down u make me blood circulation, bery good. He said : I will fuck.| At that time I said I had already informed lady officer to take over you and already messaged manager who was coming, what u want some more? u see me easily been eaten ? I saw his reaction like to to fight and quickly go home. Luckily one officer at the scene, if not something might be happened.
At 0745 am , i passed by counter and I asked lady officer did you take over him on tine, she said yes. I told her just down he made so much noise about  taking duty issue and Mr. O absence issue. The lady feedback to me that I never helped photostat some forms and she told him it is not my fault because the new card prevent me to access to the copy function.
After hearing this I called manager about all these I said to him that I will fuck Mr. Hot from now onwards just to let you know.

还是老实念佛好

現在让自己清醒的方法就是在这里写写字。毎天一定要警觉,不要讲废话。因为讲了,写了就会成习慣,成为习性。如果某人喜欢谈一些不正当的东西也是他的刁性造成的,不要与他同流共污就可。
好了!还是老实念佛好!

退一步海阔天空

他告诉我:
我昨早要去量国旗,我的一个下属说这是犯法的。他说保安人員不可以拿下国旗。他说有些大人物去世后下半旗,升降是由特定的人去做的。我看到他讲的很认真又听他说如果我拿下国旗采測量,他会拍照,警察会来。
我想到退一步海阔天空,只好吞下一口气。也许他讲的对也说不定。只好不測了。早上我!只好吿诉管工。䇾二说这是管理层要,知道新定的国㹹的尺才。到了回家的路上真的是承不住气,只好发简讯告诉经理。经理说他会处理。这个員工太令人讨厌。

忍辱

以下是一名保安人员的心声
为了保住工作,忍辱是非常重要的,最近管理层母老虎有些举动真令人不快。她要我们去检查在工作场所工作的承包商,每天完工后要我们确保他们有打扫清潔,天十?乂板不可有黑点等等。我们不快的是晚上我们三个保安人員都有自己的岗位,根本无法去监督承包商。即使我们去查出会有很多争执。他们可以说这个黑点不是他们弄的。
无论如何。还是要忍辱尽力而为。

感恩分享

=========感恩 Nancy O Nancy 分享== 阿弥陀佛 ====
好! 好 !好!
== Nancy O Nancy 分享:
......................................我們是壹.................................
...
淩老師說:每天要反復的告訴自己:我和宇宙本來壹體,我和自然本來壹體,我和眾生本來壹體,我和佛心性海本來壹體,我和諸佛如來本來壹體,我和眾生本來壹體。則壹切問題都解抉了。每天要反復的告訴自己:我即是宇宙,宇宙即是我;我即是佛,佛即是我;我即是佛心性海,佛心性海即是我;我即是眾生,眾生即是我;我即是壹切,壹切即是我。妳的身心靈就逐步平衡圓融了。
是的,我們本是壹體的。宇宙中的所有生靈,萬事萬物都是壹體的。我們都從壹個地方來。這個地方就是宙心。或者稱之為佛心性海。我們是壹,我們都是壹的壹部分。宙心是光的海洋。而我們都是壹束束的靈光,離開宙心來體驗各種各洋的生活。當我們離開了宙心的那壹刻起,我們的緣就開始發生了。然後開始了造業。善業,惡業,隨之流轉。
我們時時刻刻都在造業。起心動念皆是業。業改變了我們的能量信息密碼。業就像層層的外衣將我們的靈光包裹。能量信息密碼的改變,使得我們每次可能進入不同的能量場裏,也使得我們每次可能穿上不同的外衣。不好的業讓我們沈淪墮落,與宙心越來越遠。好的善業會提升我們的能量,讓我們離宙心越來越近。
然而,不管我們的外在姿態如何變化,我們的內在的清靜本性是不會變的。它永遠在我們的內部,或隱或現,與我們的宙心之根相連。我們的外在就像壹件衣服,它或者是人身,或者是動物身,或者顯現山川河流,樹木田野,或者顯現壹個星球,或者我們墮落地獄受無量的苦,或者我們淪為餓鬼瘦骨嶙峋。但是不管我們的外在姿態是如何的,我們都是平等的。我們都是壹體的。我們是壹。每束光都是總光體的壹部分。缺了任何壹束,宇宙都是不完美的。
我們看似分離著的壹個個單體,但是實際上我們內部都是相連著的。妳永遠是連著我,而我永遠是連著妳。妳永遠牽著我的心,而我永遠牽著妳的心。只是妳不覺察而已。所以,只要妳沒有回家,我就永遠不停地找妳,而如果我沒有回家,妳也會放心不下。因為我們壹體,缺壹不可。或許妳身上穿了壹層破衣服,淪為動物,餓鬼,亦或正在受著無量的苦。不管怎洋,妳都永遠被愛著。妳痛,我痛,壹體。我們是壹體的。
家,單位,地區,國家,州,界,是設立的各種屏障,試圖將妳我分開。外在的分隔擋不住內部的相聚。壹體,同頻,共振。妳能感受到我,我也能感受到妳。妳和我是壹體的。各個國家是壹體的。我們和地球是壹體的。我們和太陽系是壹體的。我們和銀河系是壹體的。人類和外星人是壹體的。銀河系和其它銀河系也是壹體的。我們和宇宙是壹體的。任何對其它人,物的傷害都是在傷害自己。所以,我們不傷害別人,不傷害動物,不傷害地球母親。
我們愛自己,愛壹切。個人(Nancy O Nancy) 體悟,僅供慘考 (感恩 Nancy O Nancy 分享)

念阿弥陀佛往生

念佛往生到西方极乐,这就是念佛人的目标。佛陀是大覚悟者。我们凡夫不覚悟却自以为是。佛陀把各种覚悟的方法告诉我们。佛陀介绍一个特別的法门让我们出离三界,太慈悲了。我们听话,信原行念阿弥陀佛就行。

卫塞节快乐

今天是卫塞节,对于学佛的人,今天可以是反省日,反省这年是否在修行上有进步以及是否有努力,向解脫道前进。是否有听佛陀的话。世界上有机会碰到佛法不多。有些人擦身而过,失去知道佛法的宇宙人生的真相。学佛后,一个人的贪憎痴肯定会減少。如果学到让人覚得恐怖,那就是不对的。我们有继续改进不足之处!趁此吉祥的日子,祝大家能夠脫离六道,念阿弥陀佛往生西万极乐世界。

工作要尽責

現在做保安也不简单。想当保安管工也要上许多课程,不过薪水是有增加了。过去公司会给保安人員用餐时间,現在这一
时用餐时间是沒有薪水的。自从当上夜班高级保安管工,沒有什么休息的时间。那在保安控制室十一小时不可偷睡,因为有闭路电视。如果有什么事故时,一看闭路电視记录,通迨原形毕露。如果犮現不尽责,是会被开除的。只好去走一走离开控制窒二小时。叫另一个来代替。还是工作尽責好!

不要輕易和人發生爭執

不要輕易和人發生爭執,當有人和我們爭執時,就讓他贏,因為我們並沒有因此而損失甚麼。
所謂的贏,他又能贏到什麼?得到甚麼呢?所謂的輸,你又輸到甚麼?失去甚麼呢?爭來爭去只會傷了彼此的和氣,還會平添無謂的煩惱.

Om mani padme hum

 
It is very good to recite the mantra Om mani padme hum, but while you are doing it, you should be thinking on its meaning, for the meaning of the six syllables is great and vast. The first, Om is composed of three letters, A, U, and M. These symbolize the practitioner’s impure body, speech, and mind; they also symbolize the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha.Can impure body, speech, and mind be transformed into pure body, speech, and mind, or are they entirely separate? All Buddhas are cases of beings who were like ourselves and then in dependence on the path became enlightened; Buddhism does not assert that there is anyone who from the beginning is free from faults and possesses all good qualities. The development of pure body, speech, and mind comes from gradually leaving the impure states arid their being transformed into the pure

般若心經


方慧幻 

切苦厄照見五蘊皆空,才能度一〉我們若看不破,就放不下,若沒放下,就得不到自在。我們要看破,就是要看到人生真實的一面,才能放下。我們人生真實的實相是什麼?佛陀說,就是無我,不僅我們本身當體是因緣所生,是空的;別人也都是空的。如果跟我們有情緣的,我們會生喜怒哀樂;如果跟我們無情緣的人發生不幸,我們並不悲傷。這都是我們攀緣的我執所造成的煩惱,但佛說實際是無我,無眾生的,皆是幻像,皆是想緣而已。實際上我們沒有一個固定不變的我及他,為什麼?
我們人生的每年每天,分分秒秒的緣起緣滅,不是我們能夠控制的;它都有因緣果報,雖有因果,當處出生,隨處滅盡;如夢如幻,空,不可得。所以,《般若心經》上說:照見五蘊皆空,才能度一切苦厄。五蘊就是集合成「我」的「色受想行識」,也稱五陰,陰蔽了我們的覺性。我們要知道它們是空的,要看得破、放得下,知道「無我」,才沒有苦痛厄難的折磨。如何照見五蘊皆空? 照見五蘊皆空」,是在照見「色受想行識」皆無自性,五蘊無自性,就是不能自主,不能自在,依他幻化,無自性即是無我。「色」無自性,無我。宇宙一切的形形色色,皆屬物質聚合而成。山河大地是色,我們的身體,也是地水火風四元素聚合而成的色相。因為一切色皆是因緣所生,因緣所生,當體即空,成壞無常,虛幻不實。萬法萬相,來去皆無自性,不可得,故「色即是空」。「色如聚沫」,我們的色身由四大假合,亦如水面風吹而成的聚沫,虛有形狀,體本無實,瞬間即破滅,無法自在,沒有自性,也是「色即是空」;色雖沒有自性,卻能緣成幻有,空即是有,故「空即是色」。若仔細思惟,我們的身體是假藉父精母卵而生的,生老病死,眾緣生滅從來沒有止息。五歲的我是我?還是現在的我是我? 都不是,沒有一個我是不變的,分分秒秒,紅白球、白血球及各種細胞都在新陳代謝,「我」只是一種概念的執著,有我即有憂悲苦惱! 從沒有一個真實不變的我。看破自我,才能真正放下。看別人也一樣,我們見得到的,皆是不真實!親人好友等等,皆是因緣和合,暫聚在一起罷了,緣盡皆空,是夢是幻!常作如是觀。       「受如水泡」,我們一切的苦受、樂受,就像水面因風動或物擊所成的浮泡,皆隨不定外緣忽然生成,須臾即沒,因緣生、因緣滅,皆無自性,不能自主,故無我,無我即空,所以「受即是空」。但苦樂宛然,不壞幻受,故「空即是受」。       「想」也無我。五蘊中,想蘊若破,五蘊皆空。想就是六根(眼耳鼻舌身意)對六塵(色聲香味觸法)所生出的分別、愛憎的念頭,生滅不停,經典說:「想如陽焰」,陽焰是春天遠觀曠野,日光折射,如水溶樣;渴鹿見之,以為陽焰是沙漠中的水池,奔前追水,不知水不可得,只是幻像!我們六根對六塵,所引起的一切愛恨情仇、分別計較,皆是如海市蜃樓般的幻覺,毫無真實可得。故說「想即是空」;又因自心取自心,非幻成幻法,故「空即是想」。我們觀察自我的起心動念,就知道每一秒都是亂想紛飛,無法停止。前一秒想的,後一秒就改變了;前秒哭,後秒笑;前秒愛,後秒恨,生住異滅,變換迅速。無中生有,轉瞬成空。沒有一種心意是永恆不變的,只是一種妄想執著,再換成另一種妄想執者,隨緣變化不止,都是永無止盡的妄想執著。如何對治?只有用都攝六根、專心一意來念佛,自念自聽,才能以一念抵萬念,漸除妄念,而回歸清淨自性。這是念佛法門最殊勝方便的功效。       「行如芭蕉」,我們隨著妄念遷流而去造作諸行,妄念非實,一切行為亦如芭蕉中空虛脆,究竟毫無實體,空不可得,故說「行即是空」;雖然諸行無常,隨緣變易,但是諸行因果究竟不昧,所以「空即是行」。       「識如幻事」,我們的識蘊,是我們眾生依無明所起的識心分別,如第八識,及由此轉生的第七識、前六識,皆認假為真,妄想執著,而誤認有個虛妄的我及我所;是妄想而有,非實體而有,就像魔術師幻出種種幻術,皆空無所有,故說「識即是空」。但若了知第八識雖虛幻無主,當體不離如來藏,體性本真,那麼「空即是識」。       五蘊皆是空有不二,真妄不二,一切唯心造,一切不昧因果,端看吾人如何用心。不僅可以照見五蘊皆空,也能從五蘊身心中,反照照自性,來照見真如法性,非空非有,無生無滅。       《西方公據》中,唐朝裴休云:「大眾從無始來,常認為我身者,是地水火風假合之身。旋聚旋散,屬無常法,非我身也。大眾從無始來,常認為我心者,是緣慮客塵虛妄之心,乍起乍滅,屬無常法,非我心也。我有真身,圓滿空寂者是也;我有真心,廣大靈知者是也。空寂靈知,神用自在,性含萬德,體絕百非,如淨月輪,圓滿無缺。惑雲所覆,不自覺知。妄惑既除,真心本淨。十方諸佛,一切眾生,與我此心,三無差別,此即菩提心體也。」若我們能從五蘊的苦、空、無常、無我之中,去看破虛幻無主的穢身、妄念,不再隨生隨死,隨其欺誑擺佈,我們才能回歸清淨的真心;而以此堅固真實的純真心體來念佛,就會如徹悟大師所說:「以能念之心,本是全真成妄,全妄即真。所念之佛,亦本全德立名,全名即德。能念心外,無別所念之佛;所念佛外,無別能念之心,能所兩忘,心佛一如。於念念中,圓伏圓斷五住煩惱,圓轉圓滅三雜染障,圓破五陰,圓超五濁,圓淨四土,圓念三身,圓修萬行,圓證本真,而圓成無上妙覺也。一念如是,念念皆然。但能念念相續,其伏斷修證,有不可得而思議者矣!」
