2020/07/16 佈施的途徑之1——既然佈施去了,就不要念念不忘。南極仙翁慈語:這修道有三施可以併行。一有財施。財施要出於你的「心甘情願」,若心有勉強、稍有不捨,雖佈施出去,其所得福報是有漏的;既然佈施出去了,就不要念念不忘,那才是「真施」。如果佈施是為了讓自己成名,讓大家都知道你佈施很多,這是虛偽的佈施,若是真施,就不需要這種名。二有法施。有句話說:「美言可市,尊行可以加人。」要發出真誠的心來說美言,因為善意的言語能利益別人也利益自己,因此,切莫吝嗇你的善言善語,你多講真心的好話,能幫助自己與他人在佈施的過程中成長、體證。三有無畏施。付出不要求回報,放下自己的身段,低心為眾生服務,培養道德勇氣,做事果斷果決不要猶豫,對的就做,不對的就不要做,才是無畏、無為的奉獻。

「六度萬行」 佈施的途徑之 (1)

The way of Giving - 1

The way of Giving.

Do not dwell on what was already given.

There are three kinds of giving. The first is financial, the "willingness" to donate.

若心有勉強、稍有不捨,雖佈施 出去,其所得福報是有漏的;既 然佈施出去了,就不要念念不忘, 那才是「真施」。
If the heart is reluctant when donating, the merit will not be in full. True donation is not to dwell on the amount after given out.

If giving is to make one famous and let everyone know that you have donated a lot, then it's false giving. If it's real given, you don't need that reputation.

二有法施。有句話說:「美言可市, 尊行可以加人。」要發出真誠的心來說美言,
The second form of giving is to sharing of words. There is a saying: "Beautiful words can be exchanged for the admiration of others, noble behavior can be respected." We have to send out a sincere heart to say beautiful words.

Because well-intentioned words can benefit others and also benefit oneself, so don't be stingy with your good words.

It's beneficial to ourselves and others to speak truthfully.

三有無畏施。付出不要求回報,放下自己的身段, 低心為眾生服務,培養道德勇氣,
The third form of giving is the support of others from worry. Not asking anything in return for our efforts, and be humble; humbly service others, and build a character of virtue.

Do things decisively without hesitation; do the right things and not the wrong and that what's considered supportive contributions.

老子道德經 第六十二章
Lao Tzu Tao Jing chapter 62

道者萬物之奧。 善人之寶,不善人之所保。
Tao is the mystery of all things. Good people treasure it, and bad people need it to protect themselves.

Those who speak great words in accordance with Tao shall be able to procure honors; those who act in accordance with Tao shall be able to elevate themselves in society.

人之不善,何棄之有﹖故立天子, 置三公,雖有拱璧以先駟馬,不如坐進此道。古之所以貴此道者何? 不曰以求得,有罪以免邪! 故爲天下貴。
Why would we abandon those that are not decent? Instead of appointing an emperor or high rank officials through wealth, why not through their virtue. What's the value of Tao? The focus is not the various benefits but just the fact that it can help you avoid wrongdoing is enough in itself of great value.

Vernacular explanation

Tao is the mystery of all things. The magic treasure of the good people, the redemption of the bad people.

It is simply not objective to judge the good words and deeds of good and evil, and even some can be bought by money.  So we shouldn't just give it up on bad people.

Therefore, when choosing important figures such as Tianzi or San Gong, instead of choosing wealthy figures with precious jade and riding horses, it is better to use simple people who cultivate Tao.

自古以來重視修道的人,並不強調修道的益處,光是它能避免你犯錯, 就可稱之為天下最珍貴的法寶了。
People who value practicing Tao since ancient times do not emphasize the benefits of Tao. But just with the fact that it can prevent you from making mistakes, it can be called the most precious magic treasure in the world.

省思 Reflection

Giving must be done by giving oneself and others what one needs to others, in order to have the reward of giving.

Giving clothes, money, and medicine to others is a giving of external property;  It is the giving of inner property to completely clear away your worries;  It is a fearless giving to spiritual and even life comfort and support.

Once the faith of giving is born, it must be carried out immediately. For example, if a flood occurs, the disaster victims should be rescued and they should do it immediately without waiting for the call, otherwise it will be too late.

佛講"無緣大慈,同體大悲",佈施是無條件的,以別人的痛苦和需要為自己的痛苦和需要, 這才是布施。
The Buddha said, "There is no great mercy and great compassion in one body." Giving is unconditional. Taking others' pain and needs as one's own pain and needs, this is giving.

結論 Conclusion

More truthful words can help you and others grow and experience in the process of giving.

Giving good words: kind words can benefit others and themselves.
