2020/11/21 (二)身、口、意,三業要清淨之1——濟公活佛慈語:你們要有豐富的德性,就要有豐富的經驗,以便濟渡眾生的所需,你們也要有普渡眾生的大志愿,才有辦法德普人間。首先,脾氣先改,身、口、意,三業要清淨。老師我不是曾經説過!徒兒傻傻沒關係,傻人傻到家就好是不是?修道辦道不是憑你的口才能力,不是在爭、在計較誰嬴誰輸,誰辦得好,誰辦得廣,輸贏是在什麼啊?在「真修實煉」。你們常在口舌上爭輸贏,是不是啊?輸贏決定在誰啊?會講話的人?那有用?從你們的口修起,好不好?

(二)身、口、意,三業要清淨之 (1)

People's body, mouth, wills; the three behaviors should be clean

You must have a wealth of virtue; you must have a wealth of experience in order to help and save all beings' need,

You also have great volunteers to save all beings, and there is a way to spread virtue (wisdom and wealth) to the world. First of all, temper should be given priority to improve, body, mouth, wills; the three behaviors should be clean.

Didn't I ever say that! It doesn't matter if you're stupid, it is alright that you're stupid enough to be true colors, is it?

修道辦道不是憑你的口才能力,不是在爭、在計較誰贏誰輸,誰辦得好, 誰辦得廣,
The way to practice and communicate for propagate Tao is not based on your eloquence or ability, not in the debate, count who wins or who loses; or who does it better and wider.

輸贏是在什麼啊?在「真修實煉」。你們常在口舌上爭輸贏,是不是啊? 輸贏決定在誰啊?會講話的人?那有用嗎?
What's the real win or loss? It's about who's the " real practice" You often fight to win or lose in your mouth, don't you? Who does it take to win or lose? Is he a good speaker? Does that work?

Practice; start with your mouth, okay?

[Four instruction of Liao Fan] The Story of Wei Zhongda

He was a government official of Hanlin Academy in the Song Dynasty. He was once brought by a ghost to the underworld.

The judge in the underworld ordered the commissioner to bring him all of Wei Zhongda's record of good and evil deeds.

When all the record book were gathered, it was found that there were so many on his evil Karma that they filled up the entire room, whereas the ones on his good Karma was so few and equivalent the size of a chopstick.

The judge next asked for a scale so he could weigh Wei Zhongda good and bad Karma to assess which type was heavier.

The record of the bad Karma actually weighed lighter than those of the good Karma

衛仲達疑惑的問:「我年紀不到四十歲,怎會犯下這麼多過失, 造下這麼多惡業呢?」
Wei Zhongda asked curiously: " I am not even 40 years old, how could I have possibly committed so much bad Karma?"

審判官就回答:「只要一個不正的念頭產生,不必等到你實際去作 那件惡事,惡業就已經成就了。」
The Judge replied: " Just by having an improper thought is sufficient to create an evil Karma. It is not necessary for a bad deed to be carried out to commit an evil Karma."

衛仲達聽了,很好奇的問:「那像筷子般小的記錄冊是紀錄了什麼? 怎麼會這麼重?」
Wei Zhongda further asked curiously: " Tell me then what is recorded in my good deed record? Why would it weigh so heavy?"

審判官告訴他:「皇帝有一次想要興修石橋,你上奏勸請皇帝不要修, 免得勞民傷財,這就是奏章底稿。」
The judge replied: " The Emperor once wanted to repair a stone bridge. You persuaded him not to do it as that would be costly and create hard labor for the people. This was your manuscript to the emperor."

衛仲達說:「我上奏過這件事沒錯, 可是皇帝沒有採納!他還是大興工程了,
Wei Zhongda replied: " I did try to persuade the Emperor but he did not adopt my recommendations and went ahead with repairing the bridge."

我的上書對那件事的進行, 並沒有發生勸阻的作用啊!怎麼還會有這麼大的力量呢?」
My proposal did not result in stopping the project from continuing. How did that carry so much merit and importance.?

The judge replied: " Although the emperor did not listen to your suggestion, your idea and thought were very sincere and genuine,

Your motivation and intention were to save thousands of people from having to do hard labor. If the Emperor had followed your advice, your merit would have been much bigger.

It is a pity that you had too many improper thoughts, and your energy to do good has been reduced by half. You, therefore, have no hope for further promotion."


Our past Karmas, both good and evil will never disappear and will always be with us.

" All principles and laws are created by the mind", Only by truly understanding and knowing our own delusion on greed, anger, and ignorance and recognizing the root of the laws are we able to follow the fundamentals in life.
