2020/11/28 心平何勞持戒,行直何用修禪;菩提只心覓,何勞向外求玄。 (一)以戒為師,不致放逸之1——濟公活佛慈語:戒律要守,就不是做給人家看的,而是做給自己看。你們修道是圖個表面功夫而已嗎?別人看得到的界限,就做得戰戰兢兢,別人看不到的地方,就鬆懈得很,這就是表面功夫,對不對?戒律要好就要謹言,一個默語戒都守不好了,更何況其它的戒律!火候、愿行要怎麼行啊?火候不煉,心念就更難守了喔!


(一)以戒為師 不致放逸之 (1)

Adopt ethical precepts and disciplines on self-restraint as our principal guide and do not retreat or give up at ease。

濟公活佛:心平何勞持戒,行直何用修禪; 菩提只向心覓,何勞向外求玄。
If the heart is calm , there will not be a need to work hard to maintain these ethical precepts。 When our conducts are just and right, there is no need to meditate。 Bodhi is in our hearts and so why seek blessings elsewhere?

濟公活佛慈語:戒律要守,就不是做給人家看的,而是做給自己看。你們修道是圖個表面功夫而己嗎?
Laws of ethical precepts and principles relating to self-restraint must be observed。 We do not do this to impress others but we do it for our own benefits。 When you cultivate in Tao, do you do it superficially?

別人看得到的界限,就做得戰戰競競, 別人看不到的地方,就鬆懈得很, 這就是表面功夫,對不對?
When things can be seen, we fight and compete to perform。 When they are hidden , we become slack and careless。 This is an example of a superficial behavior , is not correct?。

戒律要好就要謹言,一個默語戒都守不好了,更何況其它的戒律!
To be able to uphold the laws of ethical precepts and principles on self-restraint , we must act and speak cautiously and discreetly in our words and deeds。 If we cannot even achieve this, how can we then able to observe the other precepts and principles。

火候、愿行要怎麼行啊?火候不煉, 心念就更難守了喔!
If we cannot even maintain our cool and temperament, how do we propose to carry out our vow? If we do not practice self-restraint , it will be even more difficult to guard against other thoughts and desires。

故事
Story

佛陀時代,有二個比丘。一日, 聽說佛陀在舍衛國演說妙法, 便相約前去聽佛陀開示法要。
During the Buddha, there were two monks。 One day they overheard the Buddha was going to give a lecture and they both decided to attend。

收拾簡單的行囊,二人便向舍衛國出發了。
They set off with only a few personal belongings。

烈日下,揮汗如雨的疾行,走著走著,覺得口乾舌躁,但路上卻沒有半點水源,二人耐著口渴, 繼續往前走……
The weather was hot and the bot was sweating profusely。 They felt thirsty but there was no sign of any water source anywhere。 Both persevered and continued on with their journey。

二人走得筋疲力竭,突然眼前一亮! 一口井就在前面不遠處! 二人宛如沙漠逢甘霖,前去汲水。
They were tired and exhausted and suddenly they saw a well not far away。 The feeling was like receiving good rain after a long drought。 They walked towards the well for some water。

當他們把水汲出井後,卻發現水中有蟲,此時一位比丘,顧不得有蟲,就迫不及待地一飲而下。而另一位比丘,只是默然站立井邊,
When they drew the water out of the well, they found insects in the water。 One of the monks ignored this and hurriedly drank the water while the other stood silently by the well。

喝了水的比丘見狀就問:「你不也很渴嗎?為什麼不喝呢?」這位比丘答道:「佛陀有制戒,水中 有蟲不得飲用,飲了即犯殺戒。」After drinking the water the monk asked the other";Are you not thirsty?Why don't you drink the water?";。 The monk replied:";According to the Buddha's precept, we cannot drink the water that has insects in it, doing so will mean we commit killing";

喝了水的比丘就勸說:「您還是喝了吧,不然渴死了,連佛都見不到,更別說聽經聞法了!」
The monk who drank the water replied:"; I advise you to drink the water before you die of thirst, otherwise you will not have a chance to even meet the Buddha, let alone listening to his teaching";。

比丘聽完,不為所動的說:「我寧可渴死,也不願意破戒而苟活!」這位堅持不喝水的比丘就因此喪命了。
After listening to the advice, the monk replied"; I would rather die of thirst than to break Buddha's precepts";。This monk eventually died of thirst。

但由於持戒的功德力,比丘往生後立即生到天道,當天晚上就以神通力抵達佛所,頂禮佛陀,佛為他說法,便得到了法眼淨。
However, because of his virtue and merits in not breaking the precepts, his spirit ascended to heaven and reached the Buddha。 The Buddha spoke to him and he eventually received the Dharma Eye。

喝了水的比丘獨自一人繼續趕路,直到隔日才來到佛所,一見佛陀, 立刻五體投地的至誠禮拜。
The monk who drank the water continued on with his journey and reach his destination the next day。He immediately paid his highest respect to Buddha。

佛陀以神通智慧力得知先前發生的事,他詢問道:「比丘!你從何處來?有沒有同伴隨行?」
With his spiritual power and great wisdom, Buddha knew what had happened when he asked the monk";where did you come from and did you travel with any companion?";

比丘即把路上發生的事稟告佛陀,佛即呵斥說:「你這個愚癡的人! 你雖然現在眼睛見到了佛,
The monk told the Buddha what had happened and Buddha said "; you foolish person, although you see the Buddha in front of you,

但是卻沒有真正見到佛,那位持戒而死的比丘已先你一步來見我了。」
But you haven't really seen the Buddha。 Your deceased companion was one step ahead of you and he had already been to see me";

佛陀更進一步說:「如果有比丘放逸懈怠,雖與我同住在一起,也能常常見到我, 但我卻不曾見這樣的比丘;
The Buddha said further";if there are monks that are so slack and at ease, even if they live with me and see me often, it will be like I have never seen them before";

若有比丘離我數千里,能精進用功、不放逸,雖然彼此相隔千里之遙,
If there are monks who may be thousands of miles away from me but, work diligently and never give up,and even though we are thousands of miles apart,

而這樣的比丘卻能常常見到佛, 而佛也常常得見比丘。」
These monks will be able to see me often and I see them often as well。
