噶瑪巴對聖雄甘地紀念日的訊息

非暴力,和平,慈悲 – 所有這些都是對卓越美德的不同表達,都是我們希望實現的目標。
但是,很難明確指出這是什麼的特質。如果我們從唯物論來看待它們,那麼它幾乎成了不可能實現的事情。
當然,因為我們的良知,因為我們本有的特質,我們仍然知道我們有實現非暴力、和平、同情的想法。但為什麼要精確的說明它卻變得如此困難,這可能是由於痛苦的情緒,惡緣都會令到我們用極端的方法來追尋這種卓越美德。

因此,我們忽視了這種美德是超乎想像的簡單的一個事實。只有用耐心,極大的耐性,顧及他人,尊重他人,我們就能夠培育這種簡約精神。

我們必須銘記那些出現在我們的生活和我們這個時代的偉大人物,他們展現了這種卓越美德。所以今天,我們懷念聖雄甘地,他樸素生活的非凡例子,他的生活方式和帶領他人用非暴力方式的生活。無論我們的文化,宗教和社會:耐心就是耐心,關愛就是關愛 – 它超越了文化,思想或宗教的所有界限。
我們可從聖雄甘地這例子學習耐心、勇氣、以及怎樣活在當下;勇於承擔艱鉅責任,並且能接受生命的脆弱,在我們生命結束後時,我們必須跟我們在世時的一切分離;然而,我們也必須要有耐心不要給它壓垮。

甘地過著一種很簡單的生活而達成了這一切成就,同時他還背負一個巨大的責任。他給予那些偉大的教訓,我們都必須從中學習。我們很多人過著的生活比他的更舒適,所以我們確實有一個非常好的機會來實現他在世時所得的成就。

在日常生活與工作時,我們必須接受生命是無常,生命是脆弱。我們必須接受條件的限制和履行我們的責任,不是為自己徒添壓力,而是要接受簡單的事實,然後盡量活在每一個當下。

懷著對聖雄甘地典範的無限欣賞,我與印度和世界上的所有人一起慶祝甘地紀念日。

#Karmapa’s Message for #Gandhi’s Birthday

‘Nonviolence, peace, compassion – all of these are different expressions of excellence, and what we all wish to accomplish. However, it is difficult to pinpoint what those expressions or qualities really are. If we look at them in a materialistic way, then it almost becomes impossible to achieve.

Of course, because of our consciousness, because of our
innate qualities, we still have an idea that we want to achieve
non-violence, we want to achieve peace, we want to achieve
compassion. But the reason why it becomes challenging to pinpoint
what they are, might be due to afflictive emotions, unfavourable
causality that pushes the search for this excellence in an extreme
way. As a consequence, we lose sight of the fact that this
excellence is incredibly simple. And only with patience, with great
patience, great care for others, great regard for others, we are
able to somehow nurture this simplicity.

We must remember great beings who appear in our lives and
in our era, who display this excellence. And so today, we remember
the life of Mahatma Gandhi-ji, his extraordinary example of simplicity, his approach of leading his life and leading others in
his path of nonviolence.

No matter our culture, religion, or society: patience is patience, care is care – it surpasses all the social boundaries of culture, mentality or religion. There is something that we can learn from Gandhi-ji about having patience, courage, and how to live life in the moment; taking great responsibilities on one’s shoulders, and at the same time accepting the fragility of this life, for at the end of our lives we must part from all that we have done; and yet, we must have the patience not to be weighed down.

Gandhi-ji did all of this by leading a very simple life, while still carrying an immense responsibility. He taught those great lessons, and we must find ways to learn from them. Many of us have a life that is more comfortable than the one he lived, so in fact we have a very good chance of achieving what he achieved in his lifetime. While carrying out all of our tasks, we need to accept that life is changing, life is fragile. We need to accept the conditions and carry our responsibilities, not by putting great pressure on ourselves but by accepting the simple facts, and then striving to live one moment at a time.

I celebrate Gandhi-ji with the nation of India, and everyone around the world, for I have immense appreciation for his example.’

Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, shares this message on the eve of Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday, October 2.
