自我的定義/如何增長虔敬心


噶瑪巴對「自我」的定義

我對「自我」的定義,就是執著於一些根本不存在的東西,意思是有違我們能放下從不存在的東西的本性 ,就像昨日的我,今日並不存在。

噶瑪巴

#Karmapa’s definition of ego:

My definition of ego would be holding on to something that is not there at all, meaning going against the nature of our mind – which is to let go of the things that do not exist – such as yesterday’s self, which doesn’t exist today.

在履行一切工作的同時,我們需要接受生命是在變化中,生命是脆弱的。我們需要接受這些條件因素,並承擔起責任,而不是對自己施予壓力。只需接受這些簡單的事實,然後努力的活在當下。

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.

噶瑪巴 – 如何增長虔敬心

通過看到利益可以增長虔敬心。

這就是為什麼我們必須要持續修行成為一個具良好品格的人。當別人看到我們這樣做的話,會有利於幫助他們增長虔敬心。

噶瑪巴

Karmapa on how devotion grows.

Devotion grows by seeing the benefit.

That’s why we ourselves have to make sure that we carry forward the practice of being decent human beings for as long as possible. And if we do that, then when others see that, then this will be the benefit to help grow their devotion.

雖然慈悲的種子是我們所有人都固有的,為了在我們自己和身處的世界中長養慈悲心,我們首先需要一塊沃土,就是我們的家庭。這完全視乎我們,找出勇氣去培養慈悲,脫離執著,和無條件地愛護所有有情眾生。

噶瑪巴

While the seed of compassion is inherent within all of us, in order to cultivate compassion in ourselves and in the world around us, we first need a fertile soil – our family. It is up to all of us to find the courage to cultivate compassion, free of attachments, and seek unconditional care for all sentient beings.
