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 enters your conscience and clearly heard.

2020/12/12 (一)當你有心結時,如何打開之8——當前賢給你意見,你沒有辦法採信的時候,你要告訴你自己,前賢走的路比你多、比你還要有經驗。當你知道有同修不修不辦的時候,你要告訴你自己,趕快把他從深淵裡救出來。當你對後學有意見、有成見的時候,你要告訴你自己,老、老師都不放棄他,你為什麼放棄他!當你發覺你在固執己見的時候,你要告訴你自己,放下「我」,參考別人的意見。

(一)當你有心結時,如何打開之 (8)

How do you undo the 'knots' in your life

Untitled Document

When you cannot believe and accept opinions or advice from your Tao seniors,

you must remind yourself that these seniors have gone through a lot more in life and hence have more experience than you.

當你知道有同修不修不辦的時候, 你要告訴你自己,趕快把他從深淵裡救出來。
When you know that some of your fellow Tao cultivators do not practice or propagate Tao, you must remind yourself to quickly assist and support them and get them out of the situation.

When you form opinions and develop prejudices on your fellow Tao juniors, you must remind yourself that our Heavenly Mother and Ji Gong master never abandon us. So why would you abandon your Tao juniors!

當你發覺你在固執己見的時候, 你要告訴你自己,放下「我」, 參考別人的意見。
When you realize you are behaving stubbornly, you must remind yourself to let go of your self-importance and consider listening to other people's opinions and advice.

Confucian Analects

子貢說:「如果能廣博的佈施於百 姓,且有能力去幫助很多的人,這樣是否可說是仁者了?」
Zhi Gong asked: " if we can and have the ability to assist the needy people, can we consider ourselves benevolent?"

孔子答說:「這樣何止是仁者而己, 可算是聖人了,堯舜他們可能還做不到如此完美!」
Confucius replied: " if this is the case you are more than just benevolent, you can be a saint. Even Yao and Shun ( the two legendary Sage Kings) cannot be so perfect"

To be called a benevolent person, you must first be able to stand steady and on solid ground before you can help to lift others who are falling.

You have to rapidly advance and improve in order to be able to provide relief and assistance to the needy. Start by doing things that are within your power and ability and be happy in helping others. This is the true path to being a benevolent person.

Benevolent people love to do things that are meaningful and significant. They love to do things as a group. Our task is to establish and carry out our Tao responsibilities of bringing more people to know and adopt Tao as their way of life.

We will then be able to work as one with Heaven and eventually return to Heaven ourselves.(立命). This is our inherent nature which is like the roots of a tree.

照顧好了以後,自然枝葉茂盛, 果實也豐收,
If we take care of them, the branches and leaves will flourish exuberantly and a good harvest of fruit will follow,

If we don't, the branches and leaves will wither and eventually die. We must therefore take good care of this inherent nature of ours in order to reach the eventual passage in life.


A famous Japanese poet once said: " Do you know how high is our cosmos?

只有五尺高,在五尺高的宇宙 如何容下我們六尺之軀? 只有低下頭來。」
It is only five feet high. How is it able to accommodate our six-foot body? The only way is to bow our heads low.


To exist in this cosmos, we must cultivate in Tao, so that we can have the wisdom to be humble.

要把自己當成滄海中的一粟, 時刻記得自己的渺小。
Think of ourselves as only a small grain in the big blue sea and remind ourselves just how small and insignificant we are.

對不起 請原諒我
I am sorry,please forgive me

謝謝你 我愛你
Thank you and I love you

Grateful for your advice

Good fortune, happiness, and contentment in life are with those who are always grateful.
