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.

2020/11/11 正念之2——南極仙翁詞慈語:舉頭三尺有神明,你的一念一舉、一言一行,人間私語,其響若雷啊!修行人怎可妄自菲薄?豈可輕看自己的使命?佛陀示現在印度是為了眾生的苦難,孔子遺春秋是為了要正倫常綱紀,而咱們白陽修士應了末劫年,又是為了什麼?在這末後一運,咱們順天應人,可要守住自己的愿、自己的心。修道不離自性,念念皆由自性而發,那是最直接也最純真的,是不是?

南極仙翁慈語:舉頭三尺有神明,你的一念一舉、 一言一行,人間私語,其響若雷啊!
The saying goes ‒ gods and deities are just three feet above us, thus every thought we have or word we speak will be heard!

How can a spiritual practitioner be belittling himself? How can you downplay your mission? The Buddha appeared in India for the suffering of all beings,

孔子遺春秋是為了要正倫常綱紀,而咱們白陽修士應了末劫年,又是為了什 麼?
Confucius spread virtue during the Spring and Autumn period (770-476 BC) in order to guide the right human relationship and discipline, however, we Bai-yang practitioners have arrived at the last era, and for what?

In this last cycle, let's follow with the heavens and reply to the call for help of human; we must keep our own vows, our own hearts.

修道不離自性,念念皆由自性而發, 那是最直接也最純真的,是不是?
Cultivation is not far from our own nature, every thought is from self- nature, that is the most direct and most innocent, isn't it?

The Altar Sutra of Sixth Patriarch. Chapter 8: On instantaneity and Graduality

「自性自悟,頓悟頓修,亦無漸次, 所以不立一切法。」
「You immediately realize, you immediately cultivate. There is no step by step, thus no laws.」

自性要靠自己覺悟,頓時開悟就頓時修證,並沒有一個循序漸進的修持階段, 所以不必建立一切法。
Self-nature depends on self-enlightenment. When you become enlightened, you will cultivate immediately. There is no gradual progression of cultivation, so there is no need to establish all laws.

《On instantaneity and Graduality 》is a dialogue between Zen Master Zhicheng and the Six Patriarchs


A cultivator should practice what《The Yellow Emperor's Canon of Internal Medicine 》says:

If you don't have too many thoughts, you can look at it calmly, the qi will naturally arise,keep the spirit inward, you won't get sick.

Take the three treasures of mind as the practice method to make the spirits run smoothly. The bad winds and breaths of the four seasons will not harm the body,

並兼善天下,宣弘此道, 使眾生復歸於樸,得識本心。
and it will be good for the world. Propagating the Tao, so that all living beings can return to simplicity and realize the original mind.


聖賢語錄: 一國之君能行王道,必可國安民豐。
Sage language record: The king of a country can follow the king's way, and the country will be safe and prosperous.

The head of the family can practice humanity, and this family can be kind to parents and filial children.

A person's temperament can be natural and straightforward, he can certainly be broad-minded and cultivate compassion.
