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

2020/06/05(4)歡喜甘願 做個好媳婦之6——但是,這個慈悲心發出來容易,維持就很困難,對不對?就好像渡人容易,成全不易。因為你沒有耐心,你發了慈悲心之後,卻沒辦法從你所發的慈悲心中領悟到該如何善用,只困在一個小小的概念裡——「我吃素了,就不應去切人家的肉、煮人家的肉,我不能這樣子,若這樣子我就造罪。」是不是啊?假若說因為妳造罪而成全他們的九玄七祖一起超生,那妳願意造罪嗎?人啊,沒看到危險的時候,一切都可以心平氣和,一但看到危險就心慌意亂。逃都來不及了,妳還敢去擔這個責任哪?


To be happy and willingly, be a good daughter in law - 6

濟公活佛慈語:但是,這個慈悲心發出來很容易, 維持就很困難,對不對?
Compassion is easy to have but hard to maintain, right?

Like how initiating people to obtain Tao is easy encouraging them towards fulfillment is hard.

因為你沒有耐心,你發了慈悲心之後, 卻沒有辦法從你所發的慈悲心中領悟 到該如何善用,
Because you don't have patience. After you developed compassion, you don't understand how to apply the wisdom from it.

And become trapped in a narrow mindset ──「I'm vegetarian now, I shouldn't cut nor cook other's meat.

I shouldn't behave this way, or else I will have sinned. 」Right?

So what if because of your sin, your ancestors and future generations get to achieve enlightenment, will you be willing to sin?

Mortals, when you don't see the danger, everything is calm and peaceful. But when you see the danger, you panic and become scared.

If isn't enough time to escape already, would you dare to take on this responsibility?

修道小故事 Practice Tao story

Mr. Yang who develops vegetarian meat jerky has had 11 restaurants before receiving Tao and is a successful businessman.

After receiving Tao, he attend a seminar and a bodhisattva compassionately advised him,

楊先生親眼看到跟著仙佛背後來的數也數不盡的小動物…如山似海, 都是他餐廳刀下的冤魂,
Mr. Yang personally saw countless small animals behind the bodhisattva...like mountains and sea. All are the souls who died of injustice under the knife of his restaurant.

If it wasn't for the bodhisattva helping him, how could he have compensated for all these countless lives?

In that moment Mr. Yang decided to change all 11 restaurants into vegetarian restaurants. however his business has plummeted since then,

In order to make up for the killing karma, he began to study how to cook vegetarian food better than meat.

後來悟透關鍵在調味而不在肉, 如果沒有調味,肉只有腥味沒有美味。
Later, he realized that the key is to in the seasoning and not on the meat. If there is no seasoning, the meat is tastes fishy and not delicious.

於是他蒐集研究中西各種香料, 開創改革素食的調味。
So he collected and studied various Chinese and Western spices and innovated it for vegetarian flavoring.

果然,餐廳的生意起死回生, 為了迎合年輕族群,
Sure enough, the restaurant business is back to life, catering to the younger customers,

He has also developed several vegetarian snacks such as vegetarian dried meat, squid slices, all delicious and no fishy smell.

省思 Reflection

每個人背後都存在一段故事, 讓我們可以從故事中看到修「道」不可思議的力量。
Everyone has their own story, and we can see the incredible power of 「Tao」through cultivation.

蘇格拉底曾說:「吃素以後,人們會和平、健康活到高壽,並且把 生活方式傳給後代子孫。」
Socrates once said: 「 After being vegetarian, people will live a long life in peace and health, and pass on their lifestyle to future generations.」

Also said: 「 If you want to eat meat, then you more land to grow crops to feed the livestock, and soon you would encounter land disputes with your neighbors which would eventually lead to war. 」

結論 Conclusion

一、人的心念,如能時常保持清明, 進而展現於週遭環境, 生活將會是美而善的。

    1. People's minds, if they can always be clear, and be mindful of surrounding environment, life will be beautiful and good.


    1. 「 Wisdom 」 is derived from the tempering of people and things, and the choice of vegetarian food is the same.
