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.

2020/10/25 正語之3——曹國舅大仙慈語:習慣粗澀惡口者,多半是可悲之人,因為他的生命沒有善的循環,故而抱怨不斷、瞋心難消,他的生活必然痛苦萬分。不要小看輕輕的一句話,你稍一出言不遜,都有可能造下惡果,那是損掉自身的福報。末後的冤債加速追討,近者自受果報,遠則遺害世代子孫,不可不慎言、慎心、慎行。賢士學修辦道都有一段時日,也開始變化氣質,對自己要有更高的期許與進步了,所以一切的言行都應有聖賢的標準。好比這「說話」,如果是「不由衷」的話,就不要說;不重要的話,就不必你歌我頌。你的有限人生,怎堪花費這麼多的時間在這些「不必要」上呢?

曹國舅大仙慈語:習慣粗澀惡口者,多半是可悲之人, 因為他的生命沒有善的循環,
A man who is used to speaking crudely is mostly a sad man, for his life has no cycle of goodness.

As a result, his life must be in great pain, with constant complaints and anger.

Don't underestimate a sentence, a slight slander can create strong consequences and karma, and diminishing our own fortune.

Accumulation of bad karma accumulates faster, and one would have to bear the consequences or it will transfer to their future generations. Always speak with caution, and be mindful of your thoughts and actions.

You have been practicing Tao for a period now, with the change in our temperament, we must put ourselves to higher standards, every word and actions should be on par with the standards of past sages and saints.

For example "talking", if what you speak is not what you truly believe then do not speak; if what you speak is not important, then there is no need to pass it around.

How can you spend so much time on these "unnecessary things" in your limited life?

Learning spaking

Socrates was a gifted public speaker. His profession was to teach people how to communicate well.

有一天一位青年前來, 請他教授演說技巧,為此大談演說如何重要。
One day a young man asked Socrates to teach him the art of public speaking. The young man went on to elaborate in length the importance of public speaking.

Socrates let the young man spoke for a long time without interrupting him. In the end, Socrates demanded that the young man pay him to double the tuition fees. The young man wanted to know the reason.

蘇格拉底說:「因為我除了要教你會講話以外, 還要教你如何閉嘴。」
Socrates replied: " It is because not only do I have to teach you how to speak well publicly, but I also need to teach you how to shut up"

Speaking cautiously is the key to cultivating one's moral character. The purpose of our spoken words is to deliver pleasant messages to the ears.


The fundamental for words and deeds lies in the thoughts. When we cultivate our moral character, we must bear in mind to act cautiously and be aware of distracting thoughts or intentions.

When we are cautious with our thoughts, our words and deeds will not be too excessively biased or lack fairness.


一.說得好聽,卻沒有付諸行動, 就像一朵美麗的假花,沒有香味。
1.Nice words without action are like a beautiful but fake flower without fragrance.

2.A person's speech, whether it is good or bad, is the result of his accomplishment or cultivation in his daily life.

三.厚德大帝慈語: 話要少說,不該說不說, 該說要小心的說。
3.Words of Wisdom by Grand Senior Master Gao: Talk less, avoid saying unnecessary things, be careful when we speak.
