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.


(二)立愿了愿,盡心用心之 (1)

Make vows, fulfill vows, dedicate and be attentive

Ji-Gong Living Buddha's Words of Compassion

想想自己這些年來進步了多少? 成全了多少人?辦了多少事?
Think about the last few years, how much have you improved? How many people have you helped? How many things have you accomplished?

外功縱然做得少,也要讓內德培養得好;你不會講道沒關係,可以默默地付出, 是不是真的立愿了愿了呢?
Even if you've completed a few outer merits, your internal virtues must be nurtured; if you don't know how to speak about Tao, it's not a problem. You can help behind the scenes, are you actually making vows and fulfilling them?

Do you still remember the vows that you made? How much have you actually implemented? You should think about this every day.

你所做的每件事,都是在了愿嗎?不要做了一件事情就以為很了不起, 有這種心態,就違愿了喔!
Everything that you do, is it fulfilling your vows? Don't think that you did something, and you are amazing; if you use this attitude, that is defying your vow!

Going around in circles

有天,一位後生到禪院與禪師品茗時, 想考考禪師便問:「什麼是團團轉?」
One day there was a student who arrived at the Zen Temple and had tea tasting with the Zen Master, he wanted to test the Zen Master: " What is going around in circles?"

The Zen master replied: " It's because the rope hasn't ripped." Hearing the answer from the Zen Master, the student was stunned.

Upon seeing this, Zen Master asked, " Why are you so surprised?" The student replied: " Elderly Master, I am surprised how you know? "

The student continued to say " I saw a cow tied to a tree with a rope. The cow wanted to leave the tree. Who knew it could not escape even if it kept spinning around.

我以為師父您沒看到,肯定答不出來, 哪知師父隨口便答對了。」
I thought since Master did not see it, you wouldn't be able to answer; but who knew Master could just answer correctly."

The Old Zen Master smiled saying: " You asked about the situation, I answered with the truth."

你問的是牛被繩縛而不得解脫,我答的是心被俗務糾纏而不得超脫, 一理通百事啊!」
What you are asking is that the cow is tied down by a rope and cannot be freed, My answer is that the heart is entangled in mundane affairs and cannot be detached, this reasoning and truth can be used universally!


每個人因緣環境不同,考驗也不同, 但是佛性是相同的。
Each person's affinity and environment is different, their obstacles are different; however, each person's Buddha Nature is the same

At the temple, we learn about Tao; when we're living, we should do things with the heart of Tao. When it is time to be tranquil, we must be at peace; when it is time to move, we must be active; this is Tao.

Bring out the spirit of cultivating and propagating Tao, by showing the infinite power of life.


Words of Compassion from Yue-Hui Bodhisattva: " Clean and pure words have no evil intent,"

Oral recitation is contrary to the truth, Whoever recites vegetarian, but his mind is contrary to it, isn't real vegetarian. Reciting truth, but acting against the truth, isn't the real cultivator.

Be sure to preserve self-cultivation, Fulfill your duty and role and follow the three purities.

1.Drawing the line between gentlemen and ladies, without having an affair.
2. Separate holy mission from private business,
3. Separate the temple money from one's own. temple's account needs to be set in order.
