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.

2020/06/25(5)體念親心, 即時行孝道之14——至於坤道,是不是都能以誠敬的心侍奉你的父母、公婆呢?是不是能以笑臉對待他們?父母親喜歡吃什麼你們知道嗎?有親手端給他們吃嗎?或者是做得心不甘、情不願,顯得面有難色呢?還有一些未婚的子女出外工作,下班回來了覺得累啦、辛苦啦!以為上班賺錢功勞很大,於是在家裡見了父母,那個臉就板得相當難看,讓父母不知如何對待,然後雙腳一 放就等著吃飯,碗筷一丟就進房間,好像什麼事都可 以不用幫忙了,是不是?

(5)體念親心,即時行孝道 之14
Understanding parents' intentions, and to act filial piety-14

As for women, can you serve your parents and parents-in-law with a sincere heart?

Can you treat them with a smile? Do you know what your parents like to eat? Did you bring serve it to them?

Or did you do it unwillingly, with an unpleasant expression?

有一些未婚的子女出外工作, 下班回來了覺得累啦、辛苦啦!
There are some single individuals who go out to work and come back from home feeling very tired.

They think that working for a living is a great contribution already, and thus feel entitled towards their parents.

Waiting for dinner to be served, and returns to the room without washing the dishes; as if housework is none of their business, is that right?

There is a book called 「Courage of Facing the Aging of Our Parents」which is a new book by Japanese author Kishiichiro.

This time, he wrote a book that is both touching and helpful with his years of experience in caring for his parents. What he wants to pass on to everyone is the courage to face the issue of our parents getting older.

當你工作幾年,或是自己也成為 父母後,就會開始擔心父母親逐漸老了他們不在那麼健康,
When you work for a few years, or you become a parent, you will start to worry that your parents are getting older. They are no longer healthy

偶爾開始忘東忘西,不再是十項全能的超人爸媽了。老去是人生必經的過程, 而陪伴對父母而言才是最需要的。
and occasionally start to forget things, they are no longer decathlon superhuman parents. Ageing is a necessary process in life, and companionship is what parents need most.

In the book, the author spends a lot of time with his demented father; however he was not defeated by this low tide or regarded his father's dementia as an incurable disease.

He always comforted himself when his father had forgotten everything and had some minor misfortune, everything is fine as long as he did not cause any danger.

《Standards for Students 》mentioned : When my parents call me, I shall answer them right away. When they ask me to do something, I shall do it quickly.

When my parents instruct me, I shall listen respectfully. When my parents reproach me, I shall obey and accept their reproach; I shall try hard to change and improve myself and start anew.

父母有事叫喚時,我們要馬上回答, 不可拖延;父母吩咐做事,我們應立刻行動, 不可偷懶;
When parents summon us, we have to answer it immediately without delay; We should act immediately when parents tell us what to do, and don't be lazy;

父母教導我們做人做事的道理, 我們必須恭敬聆聽,牢記在心;
Parents teach us the principle of doing things, we must listen respectfully and keep in mind;

父母指責糾正我們的過錯,我們必須順從接受,坦承錯誤, 不可頂嘴爭辯,掩飾過錯。
When parents point out our mistakes, we must obey and accept the mistakes, Don't argue and conceal your faults.

省思  Reflection 回想小時候父母親總是愛心與耐心呵護著我們,而現在我們面對年邁的父母,態度是否也一樣呢?
Recall that when we were kids, our parents always cared for us with love and patience, but now we are facing our elderly parents, do we have the same attitude?

尊重就是接受對方真實的模樣,相信大家都知道真正面對父母老去, 為告別時做心理準備, 不是一件容易的事情,
Respect is to accept each other's true appearance; I believe everyone knows that it is not an easy task to truly prepare parents for old age and prepare for the farewell.

No matter how young or mature, this is a difficult life problem.

結論 Conclusion

一.真正的孝道,貴在身體力行, 而不只是口說而已。 二.言行一致,才是真孝; 名實相符,才感動天。

    1. True filial piety is worth practicing, not just talking.
    2. Consistent words and deeds are true filial piety; True effort will move heaven.

三.小孝用體力,中孝兼用心智, 大孝則永久維持孝心。

    1. Minor filial piety uses physical strength, moderate filial piety
      applies heart and wisdom, and great filial piety is sustaining constant filial piety.
