2020/06/16(5)體念親心, 即時行孝道之5——還有,當父母不明理時,你們也不能把他們拋在一旁,說他老頑固就不理他啊!不行,要先讓他感動,你讓他們感動,他們就會覺得「嗯,不錯!」他就慢慢的願意來佛堂啦!父母有不明白的地方,我們要以道理來輸導他,千萬不能以瞧不起的口氣去教他,要以和和氣氣、恭恭敬敬的心來引導。為人子女的要敬愛自己的父母親,就算住得與父母親較遠,也要有一份敬愛、感恩、孝順父母的心,不管父母在任何遙遠的地方,他們還是能感受到你們的那份孝心。想想看,你們今生今世對父母親是否真的盡孝、順從了?曾否忤逆你的父母?想想吧!是誰生你、養你、教育你?這一切的一切,是誰給你的?

(5)體念親心,即時行孝道 之5
Understanding parents' intentions, and to act filial piety-5

Also, you can't leave your parents behind or call them stubborn when they don't understand the nature of Tao.

No, most move their hearts first, and then they will start to feel that Tao isn't so bad and be willing to come to the temple!

When our parents have areas that are unclear about Tao, we must guide them with reason, and not look down upon them and reply condenscendingly.

Must guide them with a harmonious and respectful heart. Being our parents' child, we must love and respect our parents.

Even if we live far away from our parents, we still need to have a compassionate, grateful, and filial heart towards are parents.

No matter where our parents are, they can still feel your filial piety.

Reflect and see if we were filial to our parents, were we obedient or did we disobey them?

想想吧!是誰生你、養你、教育你? 這一切的一切,是誰給你的?
Think about it! Who gave birth to you, raised you, and educated you? Who gave you all this? 弟子規 The Rules for Students

親有過 諫始更怡吾色 柔吾聲諫不入 悅復諫
When parents are doing something that's wrong, counsel them to make them change. Make the expression pleasant and soften the voice. If the counsel is not accepted, wait until parents are happy then counsel them again.

釋義:  Definition:

父母有不明理的時候, 雖應勸導改過向善,
When the parents are unreasonable, although they should be persuaded to change,

勸導時態度要誠懇,聲音必須柔和, 並且和顏悅色,
when persuading you must be sincere, your voice must be soft, and you must be happy.

如果父母不聽規勸,要耐心等待, 有適當時機, 例如父母情緒好轉或是高興的時候, 再勸導;
If the parents do not listen to the advice, wait patiently for the appropriate time, such as when they feeling better or happy, then persuade.

明朝時,有一位楊秀貞,母親一連生了三個女兒,沒有兒子,生第四個又是女兒, 母親氣極了,要把女嬰淹死。
During the Ming Dynasty, there was a girl Yang Xiuzhen. Her mother gave birth to three daughters in a row, without a son, and the fourth was again a daughter. The mother was so angry that she wanted to drown the baby girl.

當時楊秀貞十三歲,急忙抱起妹妹, 向母親下跪哀求:「母親為了要兒子就殺女兒,越得不到兒子啊!
At that time, Yang Xiuzhen was 13 years old and hurriedly picked up her sister, kneel to her mother and pleaded: Mother, if you kill your daughter for wanting a son, the less likely you will get a son!

If mother is troubled by sister's future dowry, you can give my dowry to this sister.

Her grandmother scolded her for being ignorant, Xiuzhen kneeled and told her grandmother:「Grandma, you read Buddhist sutra everyday, now you see that she is dying, but you don't save her, what's the use of your reading? 」

The grandmother was also moved, so she left the baby girl.  Two years later, Xiuzhen's mother really had a son.

When the mother gave birth to a son, Xiuzhen's father dreamed that his grandfather told him:「If the fourth daughter does not stay, this son will definitely not be born.」

因為秀貞當初的跪稟之言,至孝 感動上天,才得以延續楊家血脈。
Because of Xiuzhen's original kneeling words, her supreme filial piety moved to heaven, and they were able to continue the blood of the Yang family.

《The Analects of Confucius - Li Ren Chapter 4》

Confucius said:In serving parents, suggest them artfully.

If your advice is not taken, show increased reverence but never disobey; bear burdens without complaint.

孔子說:「侍奉父母發現有何過錯, 要委婉勸阻;
Confucius said:「When serving your parents and find that your parents have faults,  you should gently persuade them;

看到自己的心意沒有被接受,仍然要恭敬地不觸犯父母,雖無改善內心憂愁, 但也不去抱怨。」
When your suggestion is not accepted, you still have to be respectfully and not offend your parents. Although you can't mitigate your inner sorrow, you must not complain. 」
