永恆的喜悅 / 內在財富

永恆的喜悅

永恆的喜悅來自我們對固有本質的認知,例如慈悲與仁愛,和瞭解自我本性。當我們觀照這種喜悅的本質時,我們會發現一種永恆不變的東西-因此,這是值得我們追求的。

噶瑪巴

Timeless Happiness is gained from understanding our own inherent qualities, such as compassion and loving kindness, and gaining wisdom about our true nature. When we reflect on the nature of this type of happiness, we find something unchanging, permanent – and therefore worthwhile to seek.

內在財富

從佛教徒的角度,我們對財富的種類有更廣義的觀點。除了物質上,更有內在的財富。內在財富是永恆的,這和物質財富相反。內在財富是我們固有的無盡慈悲、智慧和其它非物質價值。

所有這些特質就在我們面前,都是我們具足的,只是我們不習慣去運用內在財富,很容易便往外追求。我們失去平衡、感覺不完整,部分原因是我們看待自己的財富和成功只著眼於本質是有限、會耗盡的東西。當我們瞭解和體驗到自己內在財富時,我們便能夠和物質上的財富取得平衡而再次感到完整。

#Karmapa on Inner Wealth:

From a Buddhist perspective, we have a broader view of the types of wealth that exist. There is Material Wealth, but there is also Inner Wealth. Inner Wealth is timeless, and in this sense it is the opposite of Material Wealth. Inner Wealth is the rich pool of compassion, wisdom and other non-material values that lies within us.

All of these values are in front of us, within us, but because we lack the experience of drawing upon Inner Wealth, we tend to look to the outside too easily. We lack balance, we do not feel whole, partly because we are considering our wealth and success solely in terms that are by their nature limited and exhausting. When we have an understanding and experience of Inner Wealth, we are able to strike a balance with Material Wealth and feel whole again.
