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.

2020/10/10 (五) 道的尊貴,在行深處之4——為什麼同樣都有佛性,有的人成功,有的人失敗,有人成聖成佛,也有人當眾生,甚至最後淪落為魔鬼,這是什麼意思呢?是根器問題?不管他的根器如何,現在三曹普渡的時候,不在乎這一切,反正有人就有佛性,只是光明與不光明而已。光明,是他佛性不滅,若不是佛性不滅,便是有先覺者點化他,使他有而知其有,之後再趕緊把那些髒物、牽纏、習氣去掉,這是他能夠不斷地克己復禮,使之光明煥發之故;還有一種是佛性迷昧、昏暗,又不接受人家的勸解、指點,固執己見,永遠都迷下去,有脾氣不願意修改,愈沾染愈厚、愈暗淡,愈使人感到可怕畏懼。這兩者之間,就是修與不修的功夫。

濟公活佛慈語:為什麼同樣都有佛性,有的人成功, 有的人失敗,
Everyone possess the same Buddha nature within, but only some succeed while others fail.

有人成聖成佛,也有人當眾生,甚至最後淪落為魔鬼,這是什麼意思呢? 是根器問題?
Some become saints, some remained as mortal beings, while some turned into demons; what is the meaning of this? Is it an innate predisposition?

No matter the predisposition one is given, in this era of mass propagation, these does not matter. Everyone comes with a buddha nature within them, so the only difference is whether that nature is illuminated or not.

If one's buddha nature is not diminished, it could be awakened by an enlightened person

之後再趕緊把那些髒物、牽纏、習氣去掉,這是他能夠不斷地克己復禮, 使之光明煥發之故;
Then one would start cleansing all the bad habits and attachment, and gradually build up one's character

However there are also those that are arrogant and stubborn, not willing to take others' advice and remain ignorant

This type of person has a bad temper, is not willing to change. The more attachment they have, the more fear and anxiety they will encounter, thus hindering them from enlightenment. This is where the challenge lies in cultivation.

影片:放下 放下才能得救 1,21

There was a Deshan Master in the Tang Dynasty who studied law and is also well versed with all the sutras, especially The Vajra Prajna The Paramita Sutra . One day, armed with Qinglong Shuchao or Blue Dragon Scattered Notes, he decided to leave Sichuan and headed for Hunan.

一日途中,突然覺得飢腸轆轆,看到前面一家茶店,店裡有位老婆婆在賣燒餅,德山大師就去買餅充飢, 老婆婆見他挑一大擔東西,便好奇問說:「這麼大擔子,裡面裝什麼東 西?」德山大師:「青龍疏鈔」

" Granny: "What is Blue Dragon Scattered Notes?" Master repl On his journey, Deshan Master felt hungry and saw a tea shop ahead. In the shop there was an old woman selling biscuits. Master Deshan went to buy biscuits to satisfy his hunger. The old woman was curious when she saw him carrying a large bag and asked him, "What's in the bag ? "Master replied: " Qinglong Shuchao or Blue Dragon Scattered Notesied: "These are the clarification or explanation notes which I did for Vajra Prajna The Paramita Sutra "

Old woman: ``So, Master knows everything about "Vajra Prajna Paramita Sutra"?" Master replied: "you can say so!" Old woman: "Then I have a question to ask you. If you can answer, I will offer you a snack; if you can't answer, please leave as soon as possible." Master Deshan thought: she is only an old woman and surely I cannot be lose to her so easily.

Without hesitation the Master replied " just ask me any question. The old woman offered the biscuits and asked, "In the Vajra Prajna Paramita Sutra it says Neither the past, the present nor the future mind can be found. I wonder which mind you are looking for?"

Master Deshan could not give an answer. He felt ashamed and annoyed but could only pick up his belonging and left hurriedly.

一、時時把握當下清楚明白的心。二、人人皆有佛性,只是光明與不光明而已。三、過去心不可得,現在心不可得, 未來心不可得,當下就是。
1. We must maintain a clear mind at all times.
2. Everyone possesses the Buddha nature,the difference is in its brightness and righteousness.
3. "Neither the past, the present nor the future mind can be found, but the mind" at the moment.
