第17世大寶法王嘉華噶瑪巴泰耶多傑,於2018年聯合國國際和平日分享以下信息。

親愛的法友,

在這個聯合國國際和平日,我想寄予所有在生活中遇到困難的人信息。

無論你是失去至愛,在颶風、颱風、洪水還是飢荒倖存下來,或者無論你是在生活中還是在工作上遇到暴風雨,都可能感到和平是一個遙不可及的夢,並且在某種程度上是無法實現。

從某個角度來看,和平可能比你想像的更容易接近。當我說「和平」時,我的意思是什麼?也許用一種描述它的方式,就是一種聯繫、虔誠和無限偉大的愛。

在生命中,通常對我們的最大衝擊能誘發最虔誠的心。偉大的岡波巴面對妻子和孩子的悲慘死亡,與他對佛法的虔誠奉獻,是不可分割的。正如密勒日巴尊者喪失了家人和他的家,與他的靈性精神,也是緊密交織在一起。

和平與混亂這兩者是分不開的。我們當中許多人生活在相對舒適的環境,可能不曾經歷過求適應和求生存中常見的深層聯繫。因此,當我們為痛苦及其原因的終結而祈禱時,我們不要將痛苦標籤為「壞」或「好」,因為我們可以看到受苦的人,卻無法體驗他們的洞見,就算在悲劇和令人心碎的事件中,也可以灑下無限愛的種子 。

我們都是不同的,你如何運用這些想法取決於你自己。但盡量不要強迫任何聯繫。例如,當我們聽著別人聽的歌時,有時心裡沒有共鳴。我們不必要強迫,而是輕輕地聽著他們的歌曲,並從他們的經驗中學習。我們需要學習以自己的方式來實踐和平。

我希望這個信息能為你帶來一些安慰,並幫助你培養需要繼續向前行的勇氣。

致上慈悲
泰耶多傑

Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, shares the following message on the occasion of the 2018 United Nations International Day of Peace.

Dear dharma friends
On this United Nations International Day of Peace, I would like to offer a message to all those who are facing difficulties in their lives.

Whether you have lost loved ones, survived hurricanes, typhoons, floods or famine, or whether you are facing storms in your personal lives or at work, it may feel that peace is a distant dream, and that it is somehow unreachable.

From one perspective, peace may be closer than you think. When I say ‘peace’, what do I mean? Perhaps one way to describe it is in terms of a bond, a devotion and love so great that it has no limits.

In life, it is often our greatest challenges that lead to the deepest devotion. The tragic death of the great master Gampopa’s wife and children, and his devotion to the Buddha dharma, are indivisible. Just as the loss of the great master Milarepa’s family and home, and his spirituality, are also intertwined.

Peace and chaos are inseparable. Many of us who live in relative comfort may never experience the deep bond that is so often seen in stories of resilience and survival. So while we pray for the end of suffering and its causes, we do not label suffering as ‘bad’ or ‘good’ for we can see that those who suffer may have insights that we cannot experience, and that even in the midst of tragedy and heartbreak, the seed of limitless love can be sown.

We are all different, and how you apply these thoughts is up to you. But try not to force any connection. For example, when we listen to the songs that others listen to, sometimes there is no resonance in our hearts. Let’s not force it, but instead listen gently to their songs and learn from their experiences. We need to learn our own way to achieve peace.

I hope that this message provides some comfort to you and helps you develop the courage that you need to move on with hope in your hearts.

With compassion
Thaye Dorje

His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa
