修心路上煩惱多,悟者自心守本源, 多劫多難心來化,心中無念福壽延。 The spiritual path to enlightenment is riddled with afflictions and obstacles. It is important that the enlightened guard their inherent Buddha nature. It takes the mind to overcome whatever hardship or calamity that comes our way. Only when one’s mind is devoid of thought can one be blessed with good fortune and longevity.

心平安了,意念乾淨了, 世界都會對你微笑。 當你對自己微笑的時候, 世界上就沒有煩惱能纏住你; 當你對自己非常真誠的時候, 世界上沒有人能欺騙你。 The whole world will smile at you when your heart is peaceful and your mind is clean. When you can smile at yourself, not a single trouble in the world will affect you. When you are sincere to yourself, no one in the world can deceive you.

在人間, 什麼路都可以走,唯獨絕路不能走; 什麼路都可以選擇,唯獨歧途不能選擇。 人生的道路很挫折, 但是我們要昂首闊步地走上坡, 你會避開很多彎路、小路、險路。 精進學佛,再長的路也能走過。 學佛不僅僅在於持續, 更重要在於保持正確的學佛方向。 We can take any road in the world, but never the road to ruin. We can choose any path, but never the one that leads us astray. Despite the many obstacles along the path in life, we must walk uphill with our heads held high. In [...]

懂得快樂的人, 每一天活在世界上沒有不快樂的。 何須頓足捶胸、長吁短歎, 正所謂聽得春花秋月語, 必先識得如雲似水心。 記住:萬物唯心造。 One who knows how to be happy will not live a day without happiness. It is no use stamping one’s feet and beating one’s chest lamenting and moaning. Only when we understand our ever-changing mind can one identify their feelings and perceptions in relation to their surroundings. Remember that [...]

一滴墨汁落在一杯清水裡, 這杯水立刻變色,不能喝了; 一滴墨汁如果融在大海裡, 大海依然是蔚藍色的大海。 為什麼?因為兩者的肚量不一樣。 不熟的麥穗直直地向上挺著, 成熟的麥穗低垂著頭。 為什麼?因為兩者的分量不一樣。 寬容別人,就是肚量; 謙卑自己,就是分量。 合起來,就是一個人的品質。 A glass of water changes its colour and becomes undrinkable when it is stained by a drop of ink, whereas the ocean remains blue even when a drop of ink dissolves in it. Why is it so? It is because their capacity differs. Wheat [...]

心念散,魂不齊; 心念定,智慧齊。 一個人心念定, 無事是貴人,心常莫造作。 在日常生活中,要用無事來解決這個問題,不去惹事就不會生非; 要安然,才能平安; 心要平安,才能真正的無恙。 When one’s mind is scattered, one’s soul is distracted. When one’s mind is concentrated, one possesses wisdom. When someone s mind becomes as calm and still as water, and free of the sense of right and wrong, they are no longer ordinary people. Their minds are undisturbed. This [...]
