2020/11/22 (二)身、口、意,三業要清淨之2——掃地掃地掃心地,心地要如何做掃除工作呢?一、掃地時,角落是最難掃的,而修道的小節也是最難注意都要做。到的,修道要修到連最細微小節處都注意到才行。二、地要每天去掃才會乾淨,修道的工作也是每天都要做。湯之盤銘曰:「苟日新、日日新、又日新。」其義即在此。三、地再怎麼掃,門窗緊閉仍會有灰塵。所以修道修心,就是要從心地上下功夫,從根本處著手,而不是只靠不去看、不去想、不去說、不去聽....來遏止。白陽的修道人都是在鬧市中修,故必須從根本處著手,真正由心地的修養、修持上來下功夫。

Sweeping the floor, sweeping the floor, sweeping the land of the mind, how to purify and clean up the mind?

The first point: when sweeping the floor, the corner is the most difficult place to sweep, and during Tao cultivating we need to aware of even the smallest details.

The second point: In order to have a clean floor, it needs to be sweep daily and Tao cultivation need to be practice every day as well.

Tang, the founding king of the Chinese Shang Dynasty, inscribed a nine-word inscription on the daily wash tray, meaning as after: " if you could cleanse yourself today to have a fresh start. [Have a fresh start every day and do so each day, forever building on improvement] here is the meaning

Third point: no matter how we sweep the floor, there will still have dust on doors and windows gap. So the main thing about the practice is to adjust the mentality and to work hard from the mind.

從根本處著手,而不是只靠不去看、不去想、不去說、不去聽……來遏 止。
Start with the most fundamental places, not just rely on seeing, thinking, talking, and listening... to stop it.

白陽的修道人都是在鬧市中修,故必須從根本處著手,真正由心地的修 養、修持上來下功夫。
The Tao's practitioner of the Bai- Yang era practiced in the lively place, therefore, we must start from the fundamental, truly cultivate from the heart, put more effort and work hard in cultivation.

Zhou Lipante was a Buddha disciple. He had a dull character and mediocre intelligence.

He was often ridiculed by others. Buddha taught him to recite the word" Broomstick" whenever he would sweep the floor.

Even though the word (broomstick) was simple he would have a problem remembering it. He would remember the word "broom" and forget the word "stick". Then he would remember the word "stick" but forget the word "broom" This causes him an intolerable amount of frustration and pain.

Consequently, the Buddha told him compassionately:[ The meaning of broomstick is to remove dust and dirt. Think about the purpose of reciting the word "broomstick".

What is the reason for doing it?"

By following Buddha's guidance and teaching, Zhou Lipante was able to comprehend the following:[ what is dirt? Dust and rubble are dirt. What is removal? To remove is to cleanse.

The Buddha is therefore reminding us that in addition to sweeping and dusting away the dirt on the outside, we must also cleanse the "dirt" in our hearts by removing our frustration and unhappiness. By doing so, our inner wisdom will automatically manifest and reveal itself.

Zhou Lipante continued to recite the word as per Buddha's instruction and did it with understanding its meaning and purpose. He was finally able to achieve Arahanship.


「掃地掃心地,心地不掃空掃地」, 從事相上的出坡,
Sweeping the floor is like cleansing the heart, otherwise, it will be just like sweeping an empty floor.

From when things begin to happen, eliminate obstacles in our outer environment, followed by getting rid of our heart's frustration and unhappiness. This is the point of entry in our self-cultivation.

The " Great Wisdom Theory" says: " By being one-hearted and of correct mindfulness is a fast way to achieve the Truth."

We only need to maintain our correct mindfulness and even an ordinary task such as sweeping the floor can produce extraordinary outcome.
