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.

2020/11/27 (三)反省,可以終身寡過之2——修道人要學習「聰者聽人」,而不是一味地固執;再學習「明者反觀」,聰明的人是不固執、多聽別人的勸導,靜的時候能存養省察,動的時候不亂我心,時時刻刻反觀自醒,反省一下自己的思想,有沒有合乎天理良心?反省自己的行為有沒有違悖天經地義?也就是說,一個做好的人、成功的人,並不是因為他的聰明,而是因為他肯「多用心、多費心」,才成功的。只要你肯下功夫,與聖賢又有什麼兩樣呢?

(三)反省 可以終身寡過之 (2)

Self reflect or introspect can lead us to a life with no regrets and wrongdoing.

Tao practitioners must learn: " Intelligent and wise people listen to others and not be blindly obstinate or stubborn。 With further practice, , comes " the ability to understand and to see things from the other side of the coin"

聰明的人是不固執、多聽別人的勸 導,靜的時候能存養省察,動的時候不亂我心,
Intelligent and wise people are not stubborn or selfish。 They listen to other people's advice and calmly examine their own thoughts and conduct without chaos or confusion。

Always critically examine our own thoughts and actions。 Ask ourselves if they conform with the Heavenly principles and done with conscience and kindness? Also reflect to see if our conducts violate or contradict the Principles of Heaven and Earth。

也就是說,一個做好的人、成功的 人,並不是因為他的聰明,而是因為他肯「多用心、多費心」,才成功 的。
It also means that when a person is good and successful, it is not only because he is smart but also because he is willing to " be more diligent and put in the extra effort"

For as long as we are willing to put in the effort, we are really not different from the Sages and other men of virtue。


有一天,司馬光路過廚房,聞到香味, 走到廚房一看,
One day, Si Ma Guang happened to walk past the kitchen。 He could smell a good aroma coming from it。 He went into the kitchen and saw

the domestic servant cooking his favorite dish, the eight treasure rice。 But the rice was not ready。 A clever servant said to Si Ma Guang: " Can you see those green walnut kernels?"

If you can peel off the green skin on the kernels, you can eat the eight treasure rice straight away。

Si Ma Guangyi thought it was going to be an easy task and eager to prove his ability。 He immediately went inside and began peeling and did it with diligence。

令他沒想到的是,這層青皮, 想剝下來卻並不容易。
Unknowing to him, the green skin was actually not easy to peel off。

In the beginning, he used his fingernails to peel and pick。 It took him a long time just to have a few done and he also damaged quite a few。

一個丫環過來,告訴他:公子,把這些核桃仁放入水中浸泡一下, 就好剝了。
One servant girl came along and said to him: " Master, soak the kernels in water for a while and that will make it easy to peel"

Si Ma Guang did as he was told。 He soon was able to peel off a large bucket of walnut kernels in no time。 He then showed them to his sister。

His sister asked if he did it all by himself and without any assistance from anyone。

司馬光本想說是一個丫環教他的, 卻怕丟了面子,就說:「當然。」
He was initially tempted to say that a servant girl taught him the way to do it。 At the same time, he was afraid to lose his self-esteem and went on to say that he did it all by himself and in his own way。

As soon as Si Ma Guang finished saying, his father walked in and said to him in a rather serious tone: " Son, I actually saw it was the servant girl who showed you the easy way and why wouldn't you admit it?"

Si Ma Guang felt ashamed。 At this time, his mother also came and said: " Son, what your father said is correct。 You were helped by someone and that will remain the case。 Why is there a need to lie about it?"

You must carefully and critically reflect on your conducts。


From this story, we can see the importance of self-reflection and introspection on our thoughts and conducts。 It will also assist and give us more capacity in our learning

and heighten our mentality and improve our overall well being。 If we are able to self reflect when correcting our past mistakes, we will then be able to unleash our highest potential and ability。

Later Si Ma Guang became a historically world-famous politician as well as a historian。


1。 If we do not genuinely self reflect on our past mistakes, we will be easily influenced by external stimuli and act recklessly。

二、每天都應反省昨天的過失, 並觀照今天的行為。
2。 We must reflect daily on yesterday's mistakes and at the same time observe today's behavior。
