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.

2020/06/11(4)歡喜甘願 做個好媳婦之12——也許妳的家人不贊成妳吃素,那時妳就更要把身體照顧好,知不知道?證明給人家看,吃素有什麼不好,修心養性有什麼不好,是不是?如果妳愈修心養性,身體卻愈差,那誰敢跟妳來修道?妳要吃素,沒問題,妳的心先吃素,好不好?若我們的家庭環境不允許的話,也沒關係,我們的心要先吃素。

To be happy and willingly, be a good daughter in law - 12


Maybe your family does not support you being vegetarian. In that scenario you must taken even more care of your health, do you understand?

證明給家人看,吃素有什麼不好, 修心養性有什麼不好,是不是?
To prove to them both the health and spiritual benefits of vegetarianism.

如果妳愈修心養性,身體卻愈差, 那誰敢跟妳來修道?
If the more you practice Tao, the worst your health becomes, who would want to follow you?

妳要吃素,沒問題,妳的心先吃素, 好不好?
You want to be a vegetarian, no problem, you can start from the heart, ok?

若我們的家庭環境不允許的話, 也沒關係,我們的心要先吃素。
If our family environment does not allow, it does not matter, we can start from the heart.

The little monk asked annoyingly: Master, wouldn't it be great if I were an abbot! Master: What's wrong?

The little monk said puzzledly:  The abbot is always able to memorize sutras and speak of profound truths. But I'm rather stupid.

師父侃侃而談的說:方丈面壁十年每天只吃一碗水、一餐飯 你還羨慕嗎?
Master said calmly: The abbot sits facing the wall for ten years and only eats one bowl of water and one meal a day, do you still envy?

Mortals! It's all like this! Looking at others is like looking at flowers across the river. Looking at the other side is good, but when you really get there, you will think that before was better.

真的交換人生,不光會繼承他的幸福, 還會遇到它的苦惱。而且啊!變成另一個人,好多事情就遇不到了。
When we exchange lives with others, we're not just inheriting the blessings but also the sufferings. Furthermore, we may miss out on many things.

The little monk asked curiously: Then, Master, if you want to exchange your life, who do you want to exchange with?

師父:跟以前的自己交换吧! 可以少一些遺憾,而且該在的人都在。
Master: Exchange it with my younger self! There can be less regret, and all the people should be there.

The story of A Zen Little Monk tells us that all laughter and tears in our lives can only be experienced by ourselves.

生活中常常會遇到不如人意的事情, 厚德大帝在世時時常提醒我們要歇下、放下,在家這麼做,工作的時候也要這麼做,
We often encounter unsatisfactory things in life. When Emperor Houde was still alive, he often reminded us to let go. You can do this at home and at work,

many things will naturally get smoother; The more you relfect, the more you can let go, the more you will be at 「peace」. When you do things, you will be peaceful, harmonious, and peaceful.

As long as things get better and better, the family will be harmonious, the body and mind will be harmonious, and the career will naturally be rich.

But many people often come up with unwholesome thoughts whenever they have a thought. Whatever thought comes,   you can't sit still.

Do not give rise to unwholesome thoughts, it is necessary to calm down our hearts, because our occasional thoughts and action will cause a karma.

比如說「恨」,心裡頭一想到就是恨他,果真是這樣,以後在你的下意識中, 就跟他兩個是死對頭,
For example, 「hate」,when I think of it, I hate him. It really is like this, in the future, in your subconscious, you will oppose the person.

Because this cause and effect is planted, this cause and effect will be bound in the future.So when we put our mind and body down, there is no such thing as resentment, hatred, this is called letting go.

We have to let go of these hearts, not only do we have to let go now, we must let go of our usual work,

讓那些心都付諸於流水,讓它流走,不 要在內心裡,充滿了怨、 充滿了不平、充滿了對立,這些都是要不得的。
Let those hearts be put into running water, let it run away, and don't be full of resentment, full of injustice, and full of opposition in your heart, these are all wrong.

When you understand, from letting go, let us be full of love, full of peace, and full of mutual help and respect, As long as the seedlings grow up, we believe that the world will be full of happiness.

省思 Reflection

The heart can be a Buddha, and the heart can be all beings. Heart is heaven, heart is hell. Everything is in my heart, everything is in me.

人生不要只顧著外在的生活,而是要創造 內心裡的「天堂」,把煩惱痛苦的「地獄」留在心裡,就會帶給你苦不堪言的人生。
Don't just look at the external life, but create the 「 heaven 」 in your heart, leaving troubled and painful 「 hell 」 in your heart will bring you a miserable life.

若身處「天堂」,若不認識它的美好, 天堂也會轉變成為「地獄」。
If you are in 「Heaven」but don't know its beauty, Heaven will also become 「Hell」.

結論 Conclusion

一.「不要隨風飄盪,不要和而下流 倘若隨風而去,恐怕難見祖宗」
1.「 Don't drift with the wind, or regress, otherwise we wouldn't have to face to see our ancestors 」

二.以歇下、放下的心來修心養性, 從自身開始感染家人,漸漸成為快樂、和樂的家庭。
2. Cultivate your mind by resting and letting go. Start influencing your family from yourself, and gradually become a happy family.
