2021/01/03(三)了愿才能了苦,了苦就能了罪之2——每個人從理天下來皆是立愿而來的,為師不怪你來到人世間迷失了自己,忘記了誓愿,可是一旦你進入佛門,擔了神聖的職任,為師就不得不再提醒你們啊!要知道,你一人墜、萬人墜,九玄七祖皆遭殃啊!不要以為你一個人事小,只不過是造了小惡、小過,要知道「滴水雖微,漸盈大器」,不要小看一滴一滴的水源,一點一點的小過,漸盈大器,明不明白啊?


(三)了愿才能了苦,了苦就能了罪之 (2)

Fulfill your vows to end your suffering which will then allow you to end your sins and guilt

濟公活佛慈語每個人從理天下來皆是立愿而來的,
Everyone comes from the heavens with their own vows.

為師不怪你來到人世間迷失了自己, 忘記了誓愿,可是一旦你進入佛門, 擔了神聖的職任,
As a teacher, I don't blame you for coming to the world and losing yourself and forgetting your vows. Once you joined Buddhism and assume a sacred position.

為師就不得不再提醒你們啊!要知道,你一人墜、萬人墜, 九玄七祖皆遭殃啊!
As a teacher, I will remind you all again! as you know, if you fall, tens of thousands of people and their Nine generations of descendants will also fall with you.

不要以為你一個人事小, 只不過是造了小惡、小過,
Do not think it is insignificant just because you alone committed a small crime. You must appreciate:

要知道「滴水雖微,漸盈大器」,不要小看一滴一滴的水源,一點一點的小過,漸盈大器,明不明白啊?
“Small drops of water that may appear tiny and slight, gradually with produce significant impact” Do you understand?

故事
Story

一天,佛子羅睺羅等五十位沙彌,
One day, the Buddha disciple Luo Hou Luo, with fifty novice monks,

聽聞佛陀講述波斯匿王的皇后與 五位扇提羅石女侍從之間的宿世罪報因緣。
heard that the Buddha talked about the cause of the past sins between the queen of the Persian King and the five female servants of Shanti Lou stone.

新出家的沙彌們因此心生大憂懼,頂禮佛陀後說道:「世尊!我們聽聞石女的前世因緣,感到十分恐懼,舍利弗和尚具足大智慧、大福德,
The new novice monks were greatly worried. They bowed to Buddha and said, "The Great one! We were terrified when we heard about the cause of the stone girl's previous life. Sariputra monk has great wisdom and merit,

堪受舉國上下供養美味珍饈,但是我們這些新出家的沙彌就像小孩子一樣,既無福德,也無智慧,卻接受居士供養妙好的飲食,
and it is worth it for the whole country to offer him delicious and delicacies food, but we are new novice monks like a new child, who has no merit or wisdom but still can receive delicious food from laymen.

將來也要像扇提羅石女一樣, 以苦力償還信施。
In the future, I need to repay my faith with hard work, just like Shanti Luo stone girl.

想到來世的苦報,實在萬分憂慮,懇請佛陀慈悲,讓我們捨戒還俗,以避免將來的罪愆。」
Thinking of the suffering in the next life, I feel very anxious. To request earnestly merciful from Buddha, let us give up our precepts and to avoid future sins.

當時,世尊告訴羅睺羅:「你現在因為害怕罪報而想要還俗,這並不是真正離苦的方法
At that time, the Great one told Luo Hou Luo: now you want to return to normal life because you are afraid of sins. That is not the real way to get away from suffering.

譬如有兩個餓了許久之人,忽然遇到一位善人給他們豐盛美食,
For example, two people have been hungry for a long time, and suddenly there is a good man who gives them delicious food.

一時暴飲暴食消化不良。 這兩位饑民,一人聰明智巧, 一人則昏昧愚癡。
At that time, they were overeating and hard to digest. Among the two of them, One is intelligent and has good knowledge, and the other is ignorant and foolish.

有智慧的饑民,知道這是因為飲食過量,讓身體脹沉、頻頻打嗝。
The intelligent hungry people know that overeating will make the body bloated and hiccup frequently.

他即刻尋訪高明的良醫,診治他的病苦。良醫問診後對症提藥,
He immediately sought a brilliant doctor to diagnose and treat his illness after the consultation doctor provided medicine to the symptoms

讓他服藥之後吐出腹中難以消化的 積食,
to the symptoms and asked him to vomit out the indigestible food in his stomach after taking medication.

再令他取火暖身,配合起居作息和節 制飲食,如此免除病苦,常保健康長壽。
Then let him keep his body warm awhile. He has to get enough rest and have a healthy diet to avoid illness and suffering and maintain health and longevity.

至於那位愚昧的饑民,不知是飲食過量而引起種種不適,還以為是鬼魅作 祟,所以殺生祭祀鬼神,
As for the other ignorant hungry people, he does not know that overeating can cause body bloated and discomfort, and he thought it was ghosts and evil spirits who cause it,

祈求保佑,腹中消化不良的宿食腐壞生菌,導至病情惡化而往生,隨即墮入地獄道中。」
and he prays for the blessing only. The indigestible foods grow harmful bacteria in the stomach, which worsens the condition and died, and then he fell into the hell road.

佛陀進一步開示羅睺羅:「你現在 因為畏怯罪苦而想要還俗回家,就像是那位無知愚昧的饑民一樣。
The Buddha further taught Luo Hou Luo: "now you want to return home because of your fear of sin and suffering, just like that ignorant hungry people.

你有宿世修行的善根福德, 今生才能隨佛出家,
In the previous life of your cultivation, good virtues, and merits. Then in this life, you can follow Buddha's teaching and become a monk,

而佛陀正如同那位明醫能夠解除 你的苦患而免於一死。
the Buddha just like the brilliant doctor who can relieve your suffering and save you from death.

為何你要捨棄光明的正道, 選擇黑闇的險路呢?」
Why should you give up the right path of light and choose the danger of darkness?”

聽聞佛陀的教誨之後,仍然存有一些疑惑的羅睺羅問道:「世尊!諸佛 智慧有如大海一般深廣,
After hearing the Buddha teaching, Lou Hou Luo still had some doubts and asked: " The Great one! The buddha's wisdom is as deep and wide as a sea,

諸佛智慧有如大海一般深廣,而我們的心量卻像是毫末一般微小,如何能受持如來的智慧呢?」
buddha's wisdom is as deep and wide as a sea, But our minds are as small as the slightest. How can we accept and maintain faith in the wisdom of the Tathagata?"

佛陀告訴羅睺羅:「正如天降 大雨,每一滴雨水都微不足道, 但匯集每滴雨水能逐漸充盈。
The Buddha told Luo Hou Luo: " just like heavy rain from the sky, every drop of rain is insignificant, but every drop of rain can be gradually filled and the wisdom of practicing.

修習佛法的智慧也是同樣的道理, 從開始時的微少無知,終將成為 盛滿甘露的大法器,
Buddha is the same as well. From the beginning of ignorance, it will eventually become the great dharma full of nectar.

如是輾轉盛滿無量妙法,利益自己也利益他人,就如同佛陀以法水普潤眾生。」
If it is filled with infinite Dharma teaching, it will be benefiting own self and also others. Just ask the Buddha to use the water Dharma to moisten all beings."

省思
Reflection

故事中,佛陀以飢餓人為喻, 化導羅睺羅等確立修行之正見。
In the story, the Buddha used the hungry people as an example, and Buddha leads Luo Hou Luo to establish the right view of cultivation.

正見如眼,帶領修行人不至於走錯路、走遠路。
The right view is like an eye; it leads the cultivator not to take the wrong path or long way.

我們不但求道,更有前輩帶領,這是累世的善根,應當善自珍惜,落實修道。
We not only received Tao but also need to guide others. All because of our past merits and good virtues, we should feel cherished and implement cultivation.

結論
Conclusion

一、起心動念一定要小心,心裡如有不好的念頭,
Be careful of affected thoughts that arise; if you have bad thoughts in your mind,

不但會造成長期的煩惱, 也可能是一生的障礙。
it will cause long-term troubles and will be an obstacle in your lifetime.

二、任何成就,都是從非常細小的事物、從生活中的行為,經由時間累積而成。
Any achievement comes from tiny things and behaviors in life, and it's accumulated over time.
