2020/06/04(4)歡喜甘願 做個好媳婦之5——為師有一個徒兒就是這樣,她嫁到一個沒有吃素的家庭。妳說吃了素,不要去摸肉、不要去煮肉、不要去 切肉,對不對?妳們是不是這麼講的?可是她嫁入人家的家庭,以一個媳婦的身份來說,是不是要煮飯?那時妳是煮素的給公公婆婆吃呢?還是煮葷的?是不是應該煮葷的?於是,她便煮素的自己吃,煮葷的給其他的人吃,六、七年來如一日,這種精神不簡單對不對?她用她的行動證明了。她代表的是道,她代表了一個真正的修道人,所以現在漸入佳境了,她的行為受到家人的肯定,直到現在,家人都站在她這一邊,都很樂意陪她一起吃素。這樣子,她是不是齊家了?


To be happy and willingly, be a good daughter in law - 5

I have an apprentice who was married to a non-vegetarian family.

You say once a vegetarian, one does not touch, cook, or cut meat, right? You all will comment the same?

But she married into another family, as a woman (daughter in law), won't she need to cook?

Should you cook vegetarian food for your parents-in-law or cook meat? Should cook meat right?

So she cooked vegetarian food for herself, and cooked meat for others. She continued like this for six or seven years. This determination is no easy, right?

她用她的行動證明了。她代表的是道, 她代表了一個真正的修道人,所以現 在漸入佳境了,
She proved it with her actions. She represents Tao; she represents a true follower of Tao and thus her conditions have improved,

她的行為受到家人的肯定,直到現在, 家人都站在她這一邊,都很樂意陪她 一起吃素。這樣子,她是不是齊家了?
Her behavior was recognized by her family, and even until now, the family are always on her side and are happy to accompany her to eat vegetarian. So, just like this, hasn't she managed to sustain good family relationship?

故事  Story

在一個禪修營最後一天的早晨, 有一個女孩一點東西都吃不下。禪師發現她悶悶不樂,上前關心。
On the last morning of a meditation camp, a girl couldn't eat anything. The Zen master found her unhappy and stepped forward to care.

女孩望著安靜排隊拿早餐的同修, 壓低聲線對禪師說:素食好難。
The girl looked at the fellow initiates who lined up for breakfast quietly and lowered her voice to the master: Being vegetarian is hard.

禪師聽後,回應女孩一個微笑, 說:不要強迫自己,慢慢來。
After listening, the Zen Master responded to the girl with a smile and said: Don't force yourself, take your time.

女孩兩年來反覆試過三次吃素, 總是失敗。最短兩星期,最長一個半月告終。
The girl has tried to be a vegetarian three times over the past two years and always fail. The shortest for two weeks, and the longest time for one and a half month.

每次吃肉之後都非常內疚,痛恨自己壓抑不了欲望。正如她跟禪師說:愈是壓抑食欲, 對肉的欲望愈大。
Every time she eat meat,  she feel very guilty. As she said to the Zen master: the more suppressed the appetite, the greater the desire for meat.

The Zen Master held her hand and said softly: Take your time. Don't let vegetarianism become a stress.

After listening to the Zen master, the girl suddenly remembered that the original intention of practicing was to let go of burden and relax the mind. Why had it become a burden in her heart?

原來過往吃素,太執著於能否成功, 執著於背後目的,為環境、為動物、為健康,為自己所知道的一切吃素,
It turns out that in the past she was too fixated on whether she could successfully become a vegetarian. Being obsessed with the purpose of being vegetarian; whether it's for the environment, animals, health, or all the cause she know about

所以一但失敗,便覺得無法給所有大道理一個交代,甚至無法面對 身邊積極推廣素食的朋友。
So once she failed, she felt that she couldn't live to the expectations of those causes. She can't even face her friends who actively promote vegetarianism.

She forgot that being a vegetarian has 10,000 benefits to the world, But human is also a life, and our heart is a small world.

If she lack the care for herself and herself soul, despite being a vegetarian by diet, it is not the case for her heart. To achieve something but also losing another is not sustainable isn't it?

禪師解開女孩心結,女孩這次決定, 不為大道理不為結果,不為潮流也不為清高,她要為了自己,一步一步,從心愛上素食。
Zen master untied the girl's heart, the girl decided this time that she was not doing it for the causes, for the result, for the trend, or for the self-righteous. She wanted to love vegetarian food step by step for herself.

The Zen master chooses to give the meat eater maximum tolerance and comfort. If you want to promote something, you don't have to rush to express your own ideas and ask others to accept,

but first try to stand in the perspective of others, willing to see, understand and accept.

Reflection—About vegetarian

Mencius said: 「 Here's the perception of a gentleman on animals, seeing them alive, can't bear to see them die.

Hearing their sound, can't bear to eat their meat. Therefore gentlemen stay away from the kitchen.」

Everyone has a heart of compassion. We can't bear to ruin souls for appetite, especially listen to the howling when they were killed.

因此一位君子,應該遠離殺生。而且中國的古聖先賢思想中, 有很多都是主張素食的,
Therefore, a gentleman should stay away from killing. And many Chinese ancient saints thought of vegetarianism.

Because vegetarianism can grow our compassion.

結論 Conclusion


    1. Our words and deeds represent「 Tao 」 , And our behavior represents us as Tao followers.


    1. Vegetarianism is not only compassion but also a persistence of self-determination.


    1. Vegetarianism can solve human famine.
