Sutra comes out from your mouth , clear words and sound

Sutra enter your ears , clearly

Sutra enter your conscience, and clearly heard.



Ideal country, it's in your life-1

Some people have a good idea of ethics, but others don't necessarily have it.

你們看,有些修道人的家庭還不和睦, 這是為什麼呢?因為你們沒有盡到人倫之責。
You see, some Tao practitioners' family are not all that harmonious. Why? Because you didn't do your duty.

不要說我已經求道了,我就一直往前衝,什麼也不顧了,家也不顧, 人也不顧了,
Don't say that I have obtained the Tao and know what to do; thus rushes towards cultivating Tao at all cost, neglecting family and self.

You must understand, when living in society, we must understand the principles of being a good person. It would be a waste if you do not understand these principles.

So, we must focus on the fundamental, which then generates the principles. But what are the fundamentals?

The three cardinal guides and five constant virtues, and the five relationships and eight virtues; these you must advocate one by one, if you do not start from the fundamental, and seeks pomposity, that is not cultivation!

Robot and lonely old woman

事業有成的孩子,在五月的節日裡, 沒辦法回家看媽媽,就寄送人性化的科技產品-機器人來陪伴她。
A man with a successful career, unable to go home to see his mother during the May festival, sent a humanized technology product-a robot to accompany her.

人性化機器人,就像一位貼心的小孩; 幫忙打掃、擦窗戶、澆花、陪老婆婆看夕陽。
Humanized robot is like a caring child; help clean, wipe windows, water flowers, and accompany the old woman to watch the sunset.

When the robot saw the old lady asleep in the rocking chair, afraid of her cold, it brought a blanket to cover her.

From then on, the old woman and the robot lived together and looked after each other.

One day, when the old woman saw that the power of the robot was almost dead, she hurried to replace it with a new battery.

One day, the old woman came back after shopping, and sat down in the chair under the corridor, coughing uncontrollably. The robot quickly served her hot tea.

It turns out that the old woman went to buy motor oil for the robot. The robot was very happy to get the oil.

轉眼又到了五月的節日,老婆婆 拿出兩張馬戲團票券,要帶機器人去看馬戲團,請機器人幫她拿帽子。
In the blink of an eye, it was the May festival again. The old woman took out two circus tickets, took the robot to the circus, and asked the robot to help her get a hat.

當機器人拿老婆婆的帽子過來, 兩人準備出門去看馬戲團表演, 突然叫不醒老婆婆。
When the robot came with the old woman's hat, the two were going out to watch the circus performance, and suddenly the old woman couldn't wake up.

機器人看看老婆婆的口袋空空, 以為老婆婆和它一樣沒電力了,
The robot look at the old woman's pocket and thinks that the old woman has no electricity like it.

It went to the drawer to get the battery and put it in the old woman's In the pocket, shake the old woman again.

The robot took more batteries and wanted to put it in the old woman's pocket, but it all fell out. The robot knew that the old woman had passed away. The robot hugged the old woman sadly.

日復一日,機器人照樣澆花、想念老婆婆。但沒有老婆婆的照顧, 為它換電池、添加機油…
Day after day, the robot still waters the flowers and misses the old woman. But without the care of the old woman, to help change its battery and add oil to it.

The robot, whose power is getting weaker, saw the old woman wearing a hat, and was very happy to take out the two circus tickets,

pull the old woman's hand, and the two depended on each other to take care of each other, watched the circus performance.

省思 Reflection

Parents are the people who give us life, the people who raise us, the people who give everything for us.

It is filial piety to treat poor parents wholeheartedly. It is filial piety to accompany the lonely parents. It is filial piety to take care of sick parents.

對待嘮叨的父母,聆聽為孝。對待脾氣暴躁的父母,理解為孝。 今生與父母的緣分,要好好的珍惜。
It is filial piety to listen to parents' nagging. Understanding a grumpy parent is filial piety. This relationship with your parents in this life, should be cherished.

結論  Conclusion

    1. 生而為人,就要懂得做人的道理。
    2. 若不從根本做起,就枉費修道了。
  1. Born to be human, we must understand the truth of being human.
  2. If you don't start from the basics, you will waste your time to practice Tao.

若從小就接受良好的家風薰陶, 將來就接近大同世界理想國了。
