第十七世大寶法王嘉華噶瑪巴泰耶多傑於衛塞節前夕分享的信息

28 May 2018

第十七世大寶法王嘉華噶瑪巴泰耶多傑於衛塞節前夕分享的信息:

今天是紀念佛陀釋迦牟尼的誕生、成道和涅槃的衛塞節前夕。

回顧大約2500年前的今天,悉達多太子在菩提伽耶的菩提樹下攝心端坐進入甚深禪定,度過了他作為凡夫的最後一刻。當月亮接近最圓滿的時侯,悉達多太子的慈悲和智慧體證到最完美無漏的佛性。

衛塞節不僅讓我們從佛陀的一生作思考,也讓我們反觀我們的修行道路、菩薩道,以及開悟的如理修行方法。我們不需要在信心上作出什麼重大改變去相信什麼不可能的事情。悉達多太子沒有透過神奇或神秘的方法成就佛道。他成佛的道路是精進不懈地修行,作為一位勇敢無懼的典範,這也是我鼓勵大家在這個吉祥的日子要深思的事情。

我們所有人都有佛性,我們所有人都有無限智慧和慈悲寶藏的內在財富。佛陀顯示在我們面前的道路就是我們內心的道。

為了證悟我們的佛性,我們必須將我們的生命投入修行。我們在什麼地方都可以修習正念和覺知。我們在什麼時候都可以實踐慈悲和仁愛。當一個好人是我們此刻、此處就可以做的事情。

在這吉祥的日子,我們記念一位偉人的非凡生命和榜樣,可以於一世從輪迴中得解脫的聖人。我們還記得佛陀對我們所有人的教誨:

我們同樣有著非凡的愛、無條件的愛。我們也同樣有非凡和無盡的慈悲。我們也有能力成為別人的榜樣,啟迪無量眾生。

因此,讓我們將生命全然投入、專注修行,並且每天實踐菩薩道。

致上慈悲

Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, shares the following message on the eve of Vesak:

Today marks the eve of Vesak, the anniversary of the birth, enlightenment and parinirvana of Buddha Shakyamuni.

Just think: some 2,500 years ago, on this very day, Prince Siddhartha was sitting in deep meditation under the Bodhi Tree in Bodh Gaya, spending his last moments as an ordinary being. As the moon approached its fullest state, so Prince Siddhartha’s compassion and wisdom were growing to their fullest Buddha-nature.

Vesak is an opportunity to reflect not only on the life of Buddha, but on the journey that all of us are on, the path of a Bodhisattva, and the practical steps that it takes to become enlightened. For we do not need to take a leap of faith. Prince Siddhartha did not become a Buddha through some kind of magic or mystery. He became a Buddha through dedicated practice, through being an example of great courage, and this is what I encourage all of us to consider on this auspicious day.

All of us have a Buddha nature, all of us have an Inner Wealth with limitless treasures of wisdom and compassion. The path that Buddha set before us is the path that lies within us.

To realise our Buddha nature, we must to dedicate our lives to practice. The practice of mindfulness and awareness is something that we can all apply anywhere. The practice of loving kindness and compassion is something that we can all apply at any time. The practice of being a good human being is something that we can all apply right here, right now.

At this auspicious time, we remember the life and example of an extraordinary being, someone who freed himself from samsara in a single lifetime. We also remember Buddha’s message for all of us:

We too are capable of extraordinary love, unconditional love. We too are capable of extraordinary compassion, limitless compassion. We too are capable of being an example, to inspire countless beings.

Therefore, let us dedicate our lives to practice, and take daily steps on the journey of a Bodhisattva.

With compassion

第十七世大寶法王嘉華噶瑪巴泰耶多傑給學生的訊息

17 May 2018

第十七世大寶法王嘉華噶瑪巴泰耶多傑給學生的訊息:

親愛的法友,

在過去的幾天,我們看到加沙慘重的傷亡,以及有關朝鮮與其核武器談判持續存在的威脅。

中東大規模的暴力衝突,甚至是核國家之間的戰爭,都會引起許多人的擔憂。我們必須為終止暴力和防止世界戰爭而祈禱。

和平是美麗的 – 也許過於美麗,因為它太過美好,會讓我們陷入視之為理所當然的風險。從一個角度來看,在和平時期這種極端鬆懈或懈怠是戰爭的主要原因。當我們忽略和平的價值時,戰爭是不可避免的。

因此,當我們感受到和平時,極重要的是我們更加需要提高警覺。否則,和平之時將是戰爭誕生之時。當然,我們不需驚恐,但我們必須保持警惕。這是佛教徒為何禪修的原因之一 ,保持警惕、重視和平的價值。

不同背景的人在他們的生活中有著不同的習俗、風俗、禮儀,這些都是他們所珍惜的。無論我們是在禪修、祈禱神冥,崇拜大地之母,即使只是珍惜朋友、家人,同輩和同事 – 不管我們有什麼信仰和做法如何,我們都應該利用它們來幫助我們認識和感恩我們所擁有的東西,這樣我們就不會產生任何不和諧的想法。

如果此刻你正在感受平靜安寧,請珍惜它 – 不要忽視它或視它為理所當然。

我們的本質是追求和平而不是追求戰爭。作為佛教徒,當我們禪修時會體驗到、了解到這一點。

我曾經聽過說祈禱或禪修是沒有用的,需要的是’真正的行動’。從佛教的角度來看,我們明白祈禱並非無所作為,而是一種強大而有意義的行動表現。祈禱不僅能使我們保持警惕和對和平感恩 – 它是和平的源泉。

外交談判和外交關係的成功取決於對防止與終止暴力的真誠願望。這個願望,這個祈禱,是和平發展成功的根源。

當我們一起祈禱時,我們積累了一切利益眾生的功德。

因此,讓我們一起為暴力的結束和起因祈禱。讓我們為和平祈禱。

致上慈悲

Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, shares the following message for students:

Over the last few days, we have seen the tragic loss of life in Gaza, as well as continued threats in relation to North Korea and its nuclear weapons talks.

The prospect of widespread violent conflict in the Middle East, or even a war between nuclear states, is something that gives rise to fear in many people’s minds. We must pray for the end of violence, and for the prevention of a great war of the world.

Peace is beautiful – perhaps too beautiful, because it’s so pleasant that we are at risk of taking it for granted. From one perspective, this extreme relaxation or laziness in times of peace is the principle cause for war. War is inevitable the moment we ignore the value of peace.

It is therefore imperative that we are more alert when we experience peace. Otherwise peace-time will be the birthplace of war. Of course, we do not need to panic, but we must be vigilant. This is one of the reasons why Buddhists practice meditation – to remain vigilant and acknowledge the value of peace.

People of all backgrounds have different practices, different customs, different rituals in their lives that they cherish: whether we are meditating, praying to a deity, worshiping Mother Earth; even the practice of cherishing friends and family, peers, and colleagues – no matter what our beliefs and practices are, we should utilise them to help us realise and appreciate what we have, so that no size or scale of disharmony may be generated in our hearts.

In this moment, if you are experiencing a good amount of peace, please cherish it – do not ignore it or take it for granted.

Our true nature lies in peace, not war. As Buddhists, we experience this, we understand this, when we meditate.

I have heard it said that prayer or meditation is of no use, and that what is required is ‘real action’. From a Buddhist perspective, we understand that prayer is not inaction, but a powerful and beneficial form of action. Prayer not only keeps us vigilant and appreciative of peace – it is a source of peace.

Diplomatic talks and foreign relations will only be successful if they are rooted in the sincere aspiration for the prevention and cessation of violence. This aspiration, this prayer, is the root that enables peace to flourish.

When we pray together, we accumulate merit that has benefit for all sentient beings.

Therefore, let us all pray together for the end of violence and its causes. Let us pray for peace.

With compassion
Thaye Dorje
His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa
