慈悲的種子 / 覺知的利益

透過每一刻散播慈悲的種子,我們就能毫無困難地克服各種困惑。運用善巧方法避免障礙,我們於美德路上安然的前進,因此在善用這寶貴而脆弱的人身。例如,在障礙中,通過專注我們內心真正渴望的,有助於我們克服任何苦難。
我們可以提醒自己,慈悲心的培養實在不需花很多力氣。行住坐臥也可長養慈悲心。運用以上的善巧方法,我們就可以好好利用有限的物質世界裡的每一刻。

By sowing seeds of compassion as each moment passes, we overcome various kinds of confusion without much struggle. By applying skilful means to avoid obstacles, we advance safely along the path of virtue, therefore making great use of this precious and fragile human existence. For example, in the midst of obstacles, by focusing on what we truly wish for, we help overcome whatever hardship is present.
We may remind ourselves that this cultivation of compassion can be achieved without much hard work. We can cultivate compassion while sitting, while walking, while sleeping. Applying these kinds of skilful means, we utilise every moment that can be spared within the limited physical world.

覺知的利益

修持覺知是佛陀教導我們的主要方法之一,我認為這是一個極奇妙及非常善巧的方法。沒有覺知,我們將無法知道我們昨天或前天所做的善行。然後,不知道怎麼的一回事,不知道如何區別,這會令事情變得越來越複雜困難。因此,隨著覺知的練習,能夠真正識別事物,並且能真正看清事物的本來面目。

Karmapa on the benefits of mindfulness

The practice of mindfulness is one of the main practices that was introduced by the Lord Buddha, and I think it is an amazing and very skilful method. Without it, we would not be able to keep track of the positive actions or accumulations we have made yesterday or the day before. And then not knowing what is what, not knowing how to differentiate, it really makes things more and more complicated. So therefore, with the practice of mindfulness, one will be able to actually identify what is what, and truly see things as they are.
