[Hope·Embark] More Sturdy on Diligence 更扎实的努力

Jealousy is when we always feel that we own less than others. However we cannot own what we want by feeling this way. If we are lacking in merits then we must quickly accumulate merits, and if we are lacking in wisdom then we must quickly listen and contemplate on the teaching. Such diligence is more down-to-earth.

嫉妒心,就是总觉得自己拥有的比别人少,但这样并不能得到想拥有的束西。如果缺福报就赶快培福,缺智慧就赶快去闻思,这样努力更脚踏实地。

[Hope·Embark] One Who Rely on Precepts Properly Makes a Virtuous Friend 依戒如理作善友

To benefit a person and help him, one must rely on precepts, and one has to arouse the person’s interest and his faith on ethical discipline. Make him unable to accomplish any non-virtuous act and cause him to always accomplishes his virtuous action. Then one shall be known as a virtuous teacher and friend!

利益一个人、帮助一个人要依於戒,让他对戒律生起希求心、信心。令他作恶的时候作不成,做善的时候都能成就,这样的人就叫作善知识和善友吧!

  那么,反观一下我们自己的现行,譬如说我们在寺院里面,每天好像都做一样的事情——听闻佛法、早晚课、背书、辩论…… ,似乎日子是重复的,但是什么是不重复的呢? 我们每一次对佛法的听闻,在我们心续上产生的信仰的力量;每一次思惟,拿所听闻的道理来对治烦恼、结合心续,内心中收获的那一分感动;那一分觉得值遇了大宝的教法,在这样一个大宝的僧团中修行是多么地来之不易! 在整个从过去到现在的轮回里,我到底有几次能够得到这样的机会,穿上袈裟、值遇宗大师教法,又对宗大师教法具有信心,可以经年累月地听闻、思惟、修行? 这样的时光对我们来说,从过去、到现在我重复几次了? 是随处都可以见到这样的时光吗? 可能早晨起来我们就会到大殿,就会看到佛陀,但是看到佛陀、看到佛像,经典就在自己的书柜里面,在书房里马上去就可以拿到经典,真的这一切那么容易吗? 触手可及、抬眼就能看到,同行都是跟我一样穿著袈裟的出家人,真的是生来如此,就像从天上随便掉下来、被大风随便吹来那么容易的吗?

[Hope·Embark] Gratitude on Autumn Days 秋日的感恩

The fields on autumn days, are multicoloured and gorgeous. There is an atmosphere of harvesting joy, my virtuous Teacher! I’m so grateful for your kind and compassionate gifts as I gazed at my virtuous heart!

秋日的田野,五色斑斓,一片丰收的喜悦,善知识啊!我望着善行的心田,感恩您慈悲的恩赐啊!

[Hope·Embark] Road Travelled by a Warrior 勇士走的路

If the goal to learn and practice the buddha’s teaching is very obscure in the beginning, and if learning is not to seek omniscience and not to obtain the wisdom of emptiness, the learner might not be able to endure the hardships of learning. Because this is the road travelled by a warrior, it’s not for fame and not for gains, solely for liberation as a buddha! It’s for the purest dream in the mind, striving and dedicating oneself to progress, and without complains and no regrets.

如果一开始学习佛法的目标很模糊,不是为了希求一切遍智、不是为了得到空性的智慧而学,可能会无法忍受学习的艰辛。因为这是勇士所走的路,不为名、不益利,只为解脱成佛!是为了心中最纯净的那个梦想,精进努力,无怨无悔。

[Hope·Embark] Now is the Best Moment for Practice 此刻就是修行好时机

When is the time to start practicing? It is now, at this very moment! What kind of mental efforts to be used in practice? Just use valour, concentrated attention and a committed mind.

什么时候开始修行?就是现在,此时此刻!用什么样的心力修行?就用勇猛、专心致志的心。

  想一想,此时此刻我们有多少弟子都在听,希望我们如理听闻能够令师父欢喜,生生世世得到他的摄受。 也上供十方佛,令所有的佛陀、祖师、菩萨都能够欢喜,加持我们,让我们的听闻没有障碍、思惟没有障碍,乃至修习都没有障碍,一切都如法如量地能够生起。 [01′50″]

[Hope·Embark] The True Meaning of a Teacher 老师的真义

What is the meaning of a teacher? It is being the bright light when we are in darkness, as our friend when we are lonely, and directing and leading us to understand how to choose and make a decision when we are lost.

老师是什么?就是在黑暗的时候,做我们的光明;孤独的时候,是我们的朋友;在迷惘的时候,引领我们了知抉择取舍。

[Hope·Embark] Not Alone When Supplicating 祈求时就不孤单

When we are supplicating, we will feel that the buddhas and bodhisattvas are actively listening, at least at that moment we will not feel that we are facing the difficulties alone. The buddhas and bodhisattvas are with us facing them together.

祈求的时候,会觉得佛菩萨在倾听,至少在那时不会觉得是自己一个人面对困境,有佛菩萨和我在一起面对。
