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.

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.

Karmapa

————————————–

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。

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.

Karmapa

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.

和平是完全的覺知 / 保持健康的心識

噶瑪巴:和平是完全的覺知

和平就是完全的覺知。在覺知下,我們培養和融合慈悲與智慧。在覺知下,我們是生氣勃勃的、警覺的、對自己的行為負責任。在這種狀態下,我們不是由情緒所支配,而是控制著自己的情緒和行為。在這種狀態下,我們有耐性、非暴力、不作判斷。在這種狀態下,我們培養了我們內在財富和我們固有的特質,並以之與外在物質財富取得平衡來利益所有有情眾生,這便是和平。

噶瑪巴

Karmapa: Peace is Complete Awareness

Peace is complete awareness. In this state of awareness, we cultivate and combine compassion and wisdom. In this state of awareness, we are alive, awake, we take responsibility for our actions. In this state, we are not driven by emotion, we control our emotions and actions. In this state, we are patient, non-violent, we do not judge. In this state, we nurture our Inner Wealth – our innate values – and balance them with outer (material) wealth in a way that benefits all sentient beings. This is peace.

噶瑪巴- 保持健康的心識

非常簡單地我們可以透過檢視何謂健康以提高覺知,好像檢視什麼是良好的飮食,什麼能給予我們健康體魄的良好運動。同樣,我們問自己什麼是健康的心識,用諸佛菩薩給我們的正知正見,就能找到越來越多什麼可以令我們心識健康的正見。依據我們的能力來運用知識,漸漸地我們會變得更健康、壯健、堅強和更柔韌,最終我們便能克服一切困難。

噶瑪巴

#Karmapa – keeping a healthy mind

We very simply develop awareness by examining what is healthy, just like examining what is a good diet, a good fitness routine for our physical body. Just like that, we have to ask ourselves what is healthy for our mind, and then by using the knowledge that is given by all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, then we can find out more and more what is healthy for our mind. And then gradually, by applying the knowledge according to our capacity, we become healthier, fitter, stronger and more flexible, and then we can overcome all difficulties.
