An Dong Maitreya Hill morning lesson

A guide on Sutra recitation

Meditate for 3 minutes ,regulate your breathing, focus on your mind

Eye focus on the sutra, finger points on the sutra, recite the sutra, listen to the sutra, mind concentration, breath naturally and unhurriedly.

Sutra begins in your heart, clearly and peacefully

Sutra passes your eyes, with clarity

Sutra comes out from your mouth , clear words and sound

Sutra enter your ears , clearly

Sutra enter your conscience, and clearly heard.


We should always contact feelings, cherish the brotherhood-2

Think again, why did you follow the path of Tao? Does your brothers and sisters object to it? The reason might be because you haven't put enough effort.

可是你們總認為是我的兄弟姐妹們不 明理,所以就不管他們了,是不是?
However, you always think that your brothers and sisters do not know the truth, so you just let it go, and let them to be what would like to be, isn't it?

為什麼他們會反對你走道場,你要想 想,事出必有因啊!
Why would they object to you entering the Tao society, you must think clearly, there must be a reason!

雖然你知道道好,想引渡他們,可是 你的表現讓他們覺得不夠圓滿,那是你的問題而不是他。
Although you understand the benefits of the Tao and want to guide them, your behavior doesn't make a good case for them to feel it. That's your problem, not theirs.

你雖愛了天下的眾生,卻放棄了自己 的親人,這樣對嗎?
You show benevolence to all life on earth but gave up on your families, is that right?

所以你們平常就要多聯絡感情,逢年 過節時打個電話、提個禮,去走走,
You must stay connected with your family and relatives, and every New Year's Day or festival days remember to make a phone call, send a gift or visit your relatives and friends.

從家常聊到道中,讓他們慢慢接受你, 懂嗎?
From daily chores, chat to the affairs of the Tao, let them slowly accept you, understood?

故事- 富翁的屋簷
Story-Rich man's eaves

A kind-hearted rich man built a big house,

He specifically asked the master to build the surrounding eaves longer so that the poor and homeless can shelter under the roof to avoid wind and snow.

房子建成了,果然有許多窮人聚集在屋簷下,他們甚至擺起攤子做買賣, 並生火煮食。
The house was built. Sure enough, many poor people gathered under the eaves. They even set up stalls to trade goods and set fire to cook food.

嘈雜的人聲與油煙,使富翁不堪其擾, 不悅的家人也常與寄在簷下者爭吵。
The noise and fumes frustrated the rich man, and unhappy family members often quarreled with those under the eaves.

In winter, an old man froze to death under the eaves. Everyone scold the rich man for being inhumane.

夏天,一場颶風,別人的房子都沒事, 富翁的房子因為屋簷特別長,被風吹掀起了頂,村人都說是惡有惡報。
During a hurricane in the summer, other people 's houses are all right. The rich man 's house was lifted by the wind because of the extremely long eaves. Everyone in the village said that he got what he deserved.

重修屋頂時,富翁這次要求建小小的 房簷,把省下的錢捐給慈善機構,並另外蓋了一間小房子。
When rebuilding the roof, the rich man asked for a small eave this time, donated the money saved to charity, and built another small house.

This small house can shelter far more than before, but there are walls on all sides, just like a normal house.

許多無家可歸的人,都在其中獲得了 暫時的庇護,並在離開之前,都會問這棟房子是哪位善人捐蓋的。
Many homeless people have obtained temporary asylum in them, and before leaving, they will ask which kind person donated this house.

Within a few years, the rich man became the most popular person.

Even after his death, people continued to commemorated him.

Why is it that the same act of kindnesses  have such different results?

省思 Reflection

In fact, the answer lies in the sentiment of those under the eaves. It feels much different in an independent house!

「屋簷」太長,一片好心變成不仁, 「獨立小房子」卻變成最受歡迎的, 這其中的差別值得我們深思!
"Eaves" is too long, a good heart becomes inhumane, "independent little house" has become the most popular, and the difference is worthy of our consideration!

道不是在佛堂才可以修,我們本身就 有一個佛堂。並不只是來佛堂聽課兩小時就是修道呀!
The practice of Tao is not limited in the Buddhist hall, we have a Buddhist hall within ourselves. It 's not just a two-hour lecture at the Buddhist temple to be considered as practicing Tao!

在佛堂兩小時,很好修呀!我跟你笑, 你跟我笑;你客氣,我也跟你客氣, 很容易喲!
Two hours in the temple, it 's easy to practice! I laugh with you, you laugh with me; you are polite, I am also polite with you, easy!

在外面,在公司,做得到嗎? 在家庭做得到嗎?
But can you do it outside or at the company?  Can it be done at home?

我們要把道溶入社會,溶入於家庭,佛 堂只是一個輔助,大家攜手共進。
We need to apply the Tao into society and into the family. The Buddhist hall is just an aid, everyone supporting one another.

結論 Conclusion

◎ Practicing Tao requires fellow practitioners, and you will be happy only when you talk to each other and ask for warmth and care.
