1月15日,龙泉寺教化部举行“静心摄心”2016年讲师总结会,学诚大和尚出席并开示:要在学业道业事业上对自己这一年有个正确评估,要有感同身受的智慧和能力,心佛众生三无差别,无论过去做了多少,今天不做依然是零分。

On Jan. 15th, the annual end-of-year meeting titled ‘calm the mind, control the mind’ for lecturers from the Longquan Education Department was held. Ven. Master Xuecheng attended the meeting and said that we should give ourselves an objective assessment regarding our study, practice and work throughout the past year. We are expected to have the wisdom and ability to feel as others feel and that there’s no distinction between the mind, Buddha, and all sentient beings. No matter how much we have done in the past, we always start off fresh each day. 



学诚大和尚开示摘要|Here are the main points from Ven. Master Xuecheng’s speech

1)学佛的人,要能够获得新的生命力,要能够得到觉悟;

It’s important for people who study and practice Buddhism to gain awareness and to be able to live a life that’s more alive than before.

2)在一个事业里、集体里,要做一个念知力比较清楚、比较强的人,不要做一个既不能令,亦不受命的人;

Be someone who can observe and assess one’s own mind, who can be more aware of and conscious about one’s own mind; don't be someone who neither give directions to others nor obey others' directions.

3)过去,无论做了多少好事,都是菩提正因。今天、明天还要更多的去做,不能懈怠、懒惰;

No matter how many good deeds we have done in the past, it will become the correct condition for enlightenment. We need to keep on doing more and overcome our slackness and laziness. 

4)佛是自觉觉他、自利利他圆满的(圆满就是一点儿都不会差);

Buddha achieved paramita (perfection or completeness) through becoming fully aware of himself and others, benefiting himself and others. (Perfection means just the right point.)

5)我们有一颗强大的菩提心,帮助别人就不会累;

We won’t get tired of helping others as long as we possess a strong Bodhi mind.

6)学佛法不能喜新厌旧,也不能喜旧厌新。一方面要与大众广结善缘,另一方面自己的用功(定课),365天雷打不动;

We shouldn’t be picky when it comes to studying the Dharma; having a preference over either the old or the new is not the right way. On one hand, we should actively engage with more people. On the other hand, we also need to concentrate on our own study and practice 365 days a year.

7)学佛不能有患得患失的心、独善其身的心,要有一颗观察的心;

Studying Buddhism requires observation. We can’t be swayed by personal gains and losses nor can we just focus on improving ourselves without thinking about others.

8)佛法如雨露、如空气,无处不在,对不同根性的众生都能润泽,圆满精进、圆满不惧;

Buddha Dharma is everywhere like the sun we bathe in and the air we breathe. It is to benefit all sentient beings with different abilities and natures in ways so that we can all fearlessly improve towards paramita.

9)学到佛法,慢慢去感悟、去觉悟,靠我们的心来带动……

Let’s feel and become more aware now that we have come before Buddha Dharma.
