家庭對培養慈悲心的作用 /對不同現象進行審視

噶瑪巴-家庭對培養慈悲心的作用

我認為我們的家庭 ,無論是有血緣的家族關係或是其他形式的家庭倫理關係 ,都是我們開始培養慈悲心的理想環境。

無論我們的文化背景或社會地位如何,家庭是長養我們固有的慈悲心,使其茁壯成長最肥沃的土壤。如果沒有這塊沃土,慈悲的種子便不能夠生長。肥沃土壤的目的是將種子種植成為完全能綻放自己、健康的植物。因此,我們與生俱來的慈悲心的培育與我們家庭這塊沃土是密切和相互依賴的聯繫著。

#Karmapa on the role of family to cultivate #compassion

I personally believe that our family – be it our immediate family or other forms of family – represents the ideal environment to begin our cultivation of compassion.

Regardless of our cultural background or social status, our family is the most fertile soil in which to grow our inherent seed of compassion so that it flourishes. It cannot grow without this fertile soil of the family. The very purpose of fertile soil is to cultivate seeds into a fully manifest, healthy plant. Thus the development of our innate compassion is intimately and interdependently linked to the fertile soil of our families.

—————-

佛陀的教導著重于現象的本質。佛教思想可以簡單地總結為對生命本質的洞悉。因此,就是不斷對不同現象進行審視,以尋求實事的本質。

例如,在我們的人生中, 我們可能將物質財富、權力或名譽等現象視為生命的要素。從佛教的觀點,我們會檢視這些是否有真正的意義。物質財富是永恆嗎?權力是永恆嗎?名譽是永恆嗎?這些真的能夠滿足我們的希望、我們的願望嗎?只有永恆不變的東西,像流自於我們內在財富的永恆快樂,才具有真正的意義。

噶瑪巴

Buddha’s teachings generally focus on the essence of phenomena. Buddhist philosophy can simply be summed up as extracting the essence of life. So therefore, there is a constant examination of different phenomena, and a search for true essence.

For example, in our lives, we might consider phenomena such as material wealth, power or fame as part of the essence of life. From a Buddhist perspective, we would always examine and see if any of these have any true essence. Is material wealth everlasting? Is power everlasting? Is fame everlasting? Do they truly fulfil our wishes, our aspirations? Only that which is timeless, like the Timeless Happiness that flows from tapping into our Inner Wealth, has true essence.
