噶瑪巴關於最近自然災害的信息

25 August

親愛的法友,
自然災害有許多形式。悲劇每天都在發生,在印度這裡,意大利,緬甸和世界各地。
修持覺知是非常重要,它能使我們的慈悲達至受一切災難所影響的人,而不僅僅是規模較大,或者被媒體報導的那些。在世界任何地方,一個寶貴生命的喪失,都是一個悲劇。
無論你在哪裡,無論你多麼痛苦,你都不是孤獨的受痛苦。
正如佛法修行者般,我們都是深深連繫著,像母親和父親,兄弟和姐妹。
在動盪之中,我們會發現一個寂靜、清明與和平的一處。寂靜這種心境,藏於我們所有的人。即使是最嚴峻的外在環境,我們的慈悲與智慧,我們的內在財富,都不會受影響。雨不能破壞我們內在安寧。風不能吹動我們的心。
讓我們一起為所有受痛苦的眾生祈禱。
致上衷心的愛與慈悲
十七世嘉華噶瑪巴泰耶多傑

Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa #Karmapa, shares the following message in the light of recent disasters.

‘Dear Dharma Friends

There are many forms of natural disasters. Tragedies take place daily, here in India, Italy, Myanmar and around the world.

It is important to practice mindful awareness so that our compassion reaches those affected by all disasters, not just those on a larger scale, or the ones featured by the media. The loss of a single precious human life, anywhere in the world, is a tragedy.

Wherever you are, no matter how much you suffer, you do not suffer alone.

As Dharma practitioners, we are all deeply connected, like mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters.

In the midst of turbulence, may we all find a place of stillness, clarity and peace. This place of stillness, this state of mind, lies within all of us. Our compassion and wisdom, our Inner Wealth, is unaffected by even the most extreme external conditions. No rain can dampen our inner peace. No wind can move our minds.

May we all pray together for all those who suffer.

With my heartfelt love and compassion

Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa’

噶瑪巴關於印度70周年獨立日 的信息

親愛的法友,

印度70周年獨立日是這偉大國家一個吉祥的時刻。2016年8月15日是一個讓我們以感激的心回首往昔,並以希望的心展望將來的日子。在這一天,我們要銘記是由於前人作出的犧牲,我們才能展望未來。

自從11歲我離開我深愛的出生地西藏後,印度一直是我的家。就像一個母親的懷抱,印度這國家給我溫暖,安全和愛。這是因為她的殷勤款待,作為噶瑪巴的我,能夠這麼多年在這裡和海外繼續我的精神活動。

自由是一份珍貴的禮物。印度對我的上一世:第十六世噶瑪巴讓炯日佩多傑,給予宗教信仰自由的禮物。我繼續享受和感激來自印度的這份自由,同樣地許多藏族同胞和印度公民也在享受這份信仰自由。

因此,在獨立日讓我們以極度感激的心來回憶過去。祝福印度民族和她所有十二億的子民,並希望所有世界上重視宗教、言論和其他民主自由價值的人同慶祝這個吉祥的節日。

讓我們用這一天為我們的未來播下慈愛的種子,讓未來的一代也可以用希望來展望將來。

致上祝福
十七世大寶法王嘉華噶瑪巴泰耶多傑

Karmapa’s message for India’s 70th Independence Day:
Dear Dharma friends,
India’s 70th Independence Day is an auspicious moment in the story of this great nation. The 15th August 2016 is an invitation to recall the past with appreciation, and to look forward with hope. On this day, we remember that it is due to the sacrifices made by those before us that we are able to look to the future.

Since I was 11 years old, when I left my beloved birthplace in Tibet, India has been my home. Like a mother’s embrace, India has provided me with warmth, safety and love. It is because of her hospitality that, as Karmapa, I have been able to pursue my spiritual activities here and overseas for so many years.
Freedom is a precious gift. India offered my predecessor, His Holiness the 16th Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, the gift of religious freedom. I continue to enjoy and appreciate this freedom from India, as do so many other fellow Tibetans, alongside India’s citizens.
Therefore, on Independence Day, may we recall the past with great appreciation in our hearts. May the nation of India and all of her 1.2 billion children be blessed. And may all of those around the world who value freedom of religion, speech and other democratic values celebrate this auspicious occasion.
Let us use this day to to sow seeds of loving kindness for our future, so that tomorrow’s generation may also look forward with hope.

With prayers
Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa

噶瑪巴對尼斯襲擊的聲明

噶瑪巴對尼斯襲擊的聲明

對「國慶曰」的尼斯襲擊,我向法國人民表示最深切的哀悼。至少有84人受害,其中包括許多兒童。

在這種時候,很自然的會出現許多激動的情緒:震驚、悲傷、甚至憤怒。作為修行者,非常重要的是我們要防止由這些情緒所引致的任何念頭或言行。
讓我們表達的是和平而不是憤怒的語言。讓我們表達的是慈愛而不是仇恨的行為。讓我們的心識平靜,即使發生了什麼令人不安的現實繼續呈現。
也讓我們心連心一起地,為所有尼斯的受害者,以及所有受到這場悲劇影響的人祈禱。

致上愛和慈悲!
#Karmapa’s Statement On The Attack in #Nice (16 July)

‘I offer my deepest condolences to the people of France, following the attack in Nice on Bastille Day. At least 84 people, including many children, have been killed.

At such times, it is natural for many emotions to arise: shock; sadness; even anger. As practitioners, it is very important that we guard against any thoughts, words or actions that are led by our emotions.

Let us utter words of peace, not anger. Let us act with loving kindness, not hatred. Let our minds be still, even though the disturbing reality of what has happened continues to unfold.

And let us pray, separately but together, for all of the victims in Nice, and for all those who are affected by this tragedy.’

With love and compassion

講者:寶僧法師

內容簡介:大部分自稱沒有時間修行的城中人,都或多或少地有著一趟又一趟在巴士(或其它交通工具)中疲倦且無聊的時間,足夠讓我們將寂天菩薩的入菩薩行論修上至少一遍(又一遍)。從上車開始,到落車結束。

這麼貼近生活的講座,請大家勿失良機,踴躍參與。

法師自我簡介:人生中有十年在雪山,在森林,在各種佛學院;人生中另外有十年,從復旦大學,到University of Leipzig。在西藏,人家稱我漢喇嘛;在香港,有一次在給夏瑪仁波切翻譯時,曾志偉對我說:喇嘛,你的廣東話說得真好。
