2020/06/24(5)體念親心, 即時行孝道之13——茂田師兄慈語:在這白陽期我們講求的是「聖凡兼修」是嗎?在聖事方面,弟妹們都力求突破,做得很圓滿、很好, 可是在凡的方面,是不是就不堪入目了? 人都有一對雙親,對於孝道你們全都懂,可是幾人真 正落實在生活中了?有句話說:「為人父止於慈,為人子止於孝。」既然止於孝,可見「孝」很重要。要如何表現呢?好比住的問題,父母不是遊牧民族,而是兩尊活佛。可是卻有人讓父母親從一號到十號住大哥家,十一號到二十號住二哥家,二十一號到三十號住老么家,最後一天父母要住哪?沒人願意負責。今天你們已經在修辦道了,也明白孝順是本份事,為何不乾脆就把父母接來住?一方面你可以全心奉養父母親,另方面又可借機成全你的兄弟姐妹,何樂而不為呢?這 是乾道較容易犯到的事情喔!

(5)體念親心,即時行孝道 之13
Understanding parents' intentions, and to act filial piety-13

In era of the White Sun, we emphasize on "fulfilling both everyday life and spiritual mission", right?

在聖事方面,弟妹們都力求突破, 做得很圓滿、很好,可是在凡的方面,是不是就不堪不入目了?
On spiritual mission, siblings encourage each other towards greater achievement, which is very good, but what about everyday life?

既然談到凡的方面,就離不開「家 庭」。你們每人都有一對雙親,對於孝道你們全都懂,
When we talk about everyday life it is hard not to bring up family. We all have parents, and we all know that we need to be filial.

But how many people really do act upon it? There is a saying: "fulfilling fatherhood through mercy, and being a good child through filial piety.

We see the importance of filial piety as it is the utmost form of ones duty. How does one act filial? Take the issue of residence for example, our parents are not nomads, but two living buddhas.

可是卻有人讓父母親從一號到十號住大哥家,十一號到二十號住二哥家, 二十一號到三十號住老么家,
But some families would arrange for their parents to live with the elder brother from the 1st to the 10th of each month, the 11th to the 20th at the second brother's house, and the 21st to the 30th at the youngest brother's home.

最後一天父母要住哪?沒人願意負責。今天你們已經在修辦道了,也明白孝 順是本份事,
Where do parents live on the last day of each month? No one wants to take responsibility. Today you are already practicing Tao, and you understand that filial piety is a duty,

Why not take your parents back home? You can support your parents with all your heart, and on the other hand, you can take the opportunity to encourage your brothers and sisters.

Why don't you do such a good thing? This is one of the common mistake made by men!

百孝經《One hundred filial piety 》

天地重孝孝當先,一個孝字全家安, 兄弟和睦即為孝,忍讓二字把孝全。
The world values filial piety as the ultimate virtue; Filial piety keeps the family at peace. Harmony among siblings is a sign of filial piety; Tolerance helps you achieve filial piety.

手足情誼,忍讓為首,手心手背都是肉,如果兄弟之間不懂得忍讓,處處斤斤計較, 懷有利己之心,最難過的莫過於家中的雙親,這個家就很難圓滿。
Among siblings, patience is key; the palms and backs of the hands are all from the same flesh. If brothers don't know how to tolerate, care, and are selfish, then our parents are the ones who will be most sad. This family is difficult to unite.

Only with tolerance, putting personal self-interest aside, then will brothers be in harmony, the sister-in-law caring for each other, the brothers' wives helping each other, the sisters united, the parents' heart is content, and filial piety is here.

省思 Reflection

在道場,同修間扶圓補缺、同心協力, 哪裡需要我,我就往哪裡去。
In the Tao society fellow followers will helped and work together in unison. Wherever and whenever help is needed, I will go.

在道場盡心,在家庭盡力了嗎?身為修道人,乾道有沒有把修辦道 精神, 帶進家庭,去圓滿這個家?
Have you put out your best effort at home and at Tao Society? As a cultivator, does the gentleman bring the spirit of practicing Tao into the family and fulfill this family?

坤道身為妻子,有沒有盡好媳婦之道, 好好護持這個家,去和這個家?要明白,唯有夫妻同心,才能闔家圓滿。
As women, did you do your best as a daughter-in-law, take good care of this family, and bring harmony to this family? Understand that only when the husband and wife share the same heart can the family be completed.

結論 Conclusion

  1. 忍一時風平浪靜,退一步海闊天空。
    If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.

  2. 木有根,水有源,人有代代相傳的根本,
    Wood has roots, water has origin, and people have the root of being passed on from generation to generation.

立身處事以孝悌為本,明德感恩,共同締造幸福家庭, 建立祥和社會。
Conduct yourself based on filial piety and virtue and be grateful for the opportunity to establish a happy family and towards a peaceful society.
