人生多欲為苦,人常被「欲」所牽引造業。
Suffering is caused by man’s endless desire, which draws people to do evil and create bad karma.

世間沒有一樣東西是永久不壞的。
In this world nothing remains forever.

心無邪思,意無邪念,則常自在;心正邪不侵。
If our thoughts are upright and wholesome we can always be at ease and evil cannot come near.

人生如高空走索,應專心一意往前看、向前走,不要回頭空懊惱。
Life is like walking on a tightrope. Walk straight ahead and concentrate on what's in front of us; to keep looking back does us no good.

愚笨的人在心中築起一道牆,智慧的人則能拆掉那道牆,與人和睦共處。
Stupid people build wall in their hearts wise people tear down the wall and live in harmony with others.

信佛而不學佛,就是迷信,拜佛而不學佛,就是愚行。
Taking faith in Buddhism without practicing is superstitious. Praying to Buddha without practicing Buddhism is a foolish action.

智信者,深體佛法之精神,迷信者,曲折宗教之美意。
A wise believer understands the essence of Buddhism. Those who are superstitious misinterpret the virtue of religion.

有感恩就有感動,有感動就會有一股推動的力量。
Grateful, our hearts would be touched and moved. Moved, we would be inspired to take action.

迷信就會疑心生暗鬼,問神卜卦,取信於籤詩,筊杯,而無法正真深入教理。
Superstition causes suspicion, invalid faith in seeking divination from mediums, and false believe in the verses of temple tallies, as a result, one will not be able to really penetrate deeply into the dharma law.

心若迷時會很苦,苦在自己無法做主。
Life is miserable when one is in a confused state of mind, because one cannot make op one’s own decision.

將個人的美編織成整體的美,從而美化自己和他人的人生。
Let us join our individual efforts to create a wondrous beauty of the whole. In doing so, we beautify our life as well as the lives of others.

要培養一分清淨無染的愛。在感情上不要有得失心,不要想回收,就不會有煩惱。
Learn to develop pure and unconditional love, a love that has no sense of gain or loss, that asks for nothing in return. In this way we can be free of worries.

我鼓勵你們,在追隨任何法教之前,必要深入地審視它們,將這些法教與你自己的生活聯繫起來:它們是否能幫助你解決自己的問題,幫助你找到自己的願心?用這些問題去培育自己的心性,同時用自己的思想和知識深入心靈,去探索你真實的感悟。
I do encourage you to always investigate any teachings before you follow them. Relate the teachings to your own life: can they help with a problem you have or help you find your inspiration? Nourish your mind with these questions and also bring your thoughts and knowledge down to your heart to investigate how you feel.

我們很固執,不容易受影響,但我認為行善要在當下。我們可以除下自我的眼罩,因為我們已經夠堅強了,我知道我們有能力去愛。
We are very stubborn and not easily influenced but I think now is the time to do good. We can take our blinkers off, we are strong enough, and I know there is enough love to go round.

我自己人生最重要的是能夠接受一切,這個心態讓我無論身處何種環境、無論面臨何種挑戰和困難,都能隨喜享受每一刻鐘。它讓我將分別心和比較心放在一邊,讓我認識到,只要盡了力,我已經做得很好了。
The highlight of my own life is my acceptance. It allows me to enjoy every minute, whatever circumstances I am in, whatever my challenges and difficulties. It helps me to put judgements and comparisons aside; it helps me to know that I am good enough so long as I simply try my best in this life.

你需知道自己是何等重要,你的身心,還有生命是何等的重要。若你濫用生命或是買櫝還珠,完全不識生命的價值,你的世界就將失衡,一切都會錯位。只有在領悟到生命是何等寶貴之後,才能真正讓它更加美好,更加豐碩。人生短暫如流螢,為什麼不盡可能地好好利用它呢?
You need to know how important you are, how important this body, this mind and your life are. If you misuse your life or don’t really know its importance then it just feels out of balance, things aren’t right in your world. You can only make life better and more fruitful if you understand just how precious it is. We are here for the blink of an eye, so why not make the most of it?

無需去別處尋找幸福,因幸福就在眼前,就在當下。一切皆存於我們內心。我們沒必要為自己的傷痛貼上創可貼,而是要觀察內心去發現忿怒、嫉妒和傲慢的真實原因。這樣才可以開始真正的放下。
You don’t need to go looking for happiness elsewhere because it is right where you are, right now. Everything is within. And rather than sticking Band-Aids on our suffering, we can uncover the true causes of our anger, jealousy and pride. We can begin to let go.

若心不能安定,生活必會受到干擾。緊張的心會把一切弄得很緊張。與其逃避現實,不如給機會了解自己的心,它要給的信息和教學。若能照顧好自己的心,必會幫助我們不被貪、嗔、痴、慢、疑、嫉妒心、虛榮心、分別心、攀比心拖累。我們要好好關注自己的心。
If your mind is disturbed then life will be disturbed. Your nervous mind makes everything nervous. Rather than run away, give yourself a chance to understand the message your mind is giving you, the teaching. So, if we continually take care of our minds then we will help ourselves not to be dragged down by the poisons of attachment, anger, ignorance, discouragement, pride and jealousy. We keep a look out.

悠閒的步伐讓我們更容易與他人同行,更有耐力持久走下去。我們可以一路閒聊,一路注意路上吸引我們、鼓勵我們的事,我們也有時間互相鼓勵。目前,這個看起來緩慢的中庸之道並不受到大家的關注,在我們充滿競爭的社會,人們總是活在力求最好的壓力下,其實真正的生活是盡力而為,做到自己最好即可。這才是當下最重要的事。
It’s easier to walk with others at a relaxed pace, and often we have better stamina in the long run. We can chat along the way, noticing what catches our attention and really inspires us, and we have time to inspire others too. Right now, this gentle, middle path doesn’t often get the best press; it is a competitive world with pressure to be THE best, when really life is about doing YOUR best, today, because that is when it really counts.

我鼓勵你去接納生命與大自然呈現出的景緻,回顧曾有幸與之同行的朋友與所愛的人。試著不要為自己的關注和期望所累,輕裝前行,享受旅途中的每一天。放慢腳步,不要匆忙。很快,你就會注意到那些真正重要的,值得你關注的,為你帶來啟迪的事。你的心知道,路在何方。
I encourage you to take in the scenery of your life and of nature, and contemplate all the wonderful friends and loved ones you have been fortunate enough to walk with. Try not to load yourself down with your cares or your expectations but step lightly, enjoying each day of the journey. Take your time, don’t rush, and you will soon notice what really catches your attention, what inspires you and what matters. Your heart knows the way.

愛與慈悲是我們用來理解和應對恐懼最強大的工具。慈悲心會減少自我的空間,把恐懼的空間更縮小。若自我很強大,會需要多一段時間發展慈悲。你必須先接受你自己,才會開始有空間接受他人,然後才會向他人發送愛,首先可以學習如何愛你的家人,然後逐漸將愛擴展至所有眾生。這世上沒什麼比愛更強大的力量,愛會讓你無所畏懼。
Our strongest tools for understanding and challenging our fears come back to love and compassion. As you develop compassion there is less room for the ego and so less room for fear. This can take time as often the ego is so strong. You have to at first accept yourself and then you will begin to have room for others too and send out your love as radiance, per-haps first with your immediate family and then gradually to everybody. Nothing is stronger than love, it is the strongest power in this world and it will keep you fearless.

有時候,我們注重儀軌的儀式超過了修行本身,或在還沒確定自己的靈修之道就被困於修行儀軌中。我認為我們應首先去理解,自己還是初學者,心性還是很幼稚,所以在還沒有邁出第一步前,不應當嘗試飛奔。最好是從最小而簡單的步驟開始,但卻很用心的去做,因為這樣你才能逐步理解生活的美景,生活的意義。
Sometimes the ritual of performing spiritual practice overwhelms the practice itself, or we get caught up in practice before we know what path to take. I think it is good to understand that we are beginners, even childish when it comes to our minds, so that we don’t try to run before we take a first step. It is better to do something very small and really mean it, because then you understand the scene of life, the meaning of life.

正如現代生活可能成為一個將我們捲入忙碌和期望的漩渦裡的陷阱,同樣的,如果我們急於讓一切都合乎正統,遵循每一個儀軌,以滿足立即證悟的期望,而並非以溫和而隨意的方式修行的話,靈性的生活也可能成為一個陷阱。因為這樣一來,你就會把證悟和幸福變成一種期望和要求,完全找錯了地方。
Just as aspects of modern life can become a trap, catching us up in a whirlwind of busyness and expectations, spirituality can become a trap too if we rush into trying to do everything right, following every ritual in the hope that we will suddenly be enlightened, rather than taking it gently and easily. Because then you will be making enlightenment and happiness an expectation or a demand, you will be looking in the wrong places.

信佛而不學佛,就是迷信;拜佛而不學佛,就是愚行。
Embracing Buddhism without cultivation is superstitious; praying to Buddha without cultivation is an act of foolishness.

造福人間,庇護地球,都需從自己做起。
Everything, from protecting the earth to doing good for human kind, begins with ourselves.

少欲知足,是最富有的人生。

有愛心,就能成為他人生命中的貴人。

菩薩不是土塑木刻的形象,真正的菩薩能做事、能說話、能吃飯,能尋聲救苦隨處現身。
Bodhisattvas are not idols made of wood; real Bodhisattvas are people who eat, talk, work, and relieve suffering in times of need.

有些人常常起煩惱,因為別人一句無心的話,他卻有意的接受。
People often feel upset, because they take careless remarks too seriously.

唯有真情、大愛之清流,才能淡化舉世污穢之濁流。
Through true selfless love, our tainted and poluted society will eventually be cleansed.

迷信不如無信,學佛一定要轉迷為智,離開眾生的煩惱心,回歸清淨無染的佛心。
Better to be non-believer than to be superstitious – faith in Buddhism must be guided by wisdom, letting go of attachments and reverting to the pure untainted Buddha nature.

知足之人,雖臥地上,猶為安樂;不知足者,雖處天堂,亦不稱意。
One who is content finds great happiness even sleeping on the ground. One who is discontent will never find happiness even in heaven.

生命無價,會用才有價值,不會用則是白白浪費。
Life is valuable only to the extent that it is used.

千里之路,必順從第一步開始;聖人的境域,也是自凡夫起步。
The journey of a thousand miles begins with one first step. Even the sage was once an ordinary human being.

放下身段,縮小自己,讓生命和慧命相結合。
Put down our status, merge our physical life and wisdom life together.

學佛,就是要學會及時改正錯誤的觀念。
Practicing Buddhism is about learning to promptly correct our wrong views.

沒做壞事是人的本分,心好卻不付諸行動,等於沒做一樣。
Not harming others is but our duty. Having a good heart without doing good things is still equal to doing nothing at all.

希望大地資源不短缺,必須從懂得珍惜開始。
If we hope to conserve our planet"s resources, we must start by learning to cherish what we already have.

找路不如找心,問路不如問心。
Rather than searching for a path, search within our own mind; instead of asking for directions, ask our heart.

真正的福德,是以平常心守本分、勤付出。
True blessing comes from being content with one’s station in life, and from a tireless dedication to give without asking for anything in return.

無欲無求,少煩少腦,就容易開啟心門擁有智慧。
By reducing our wants and worries, we make space in our heart for wisdom.

有正念而無欲念,是最好的養生之道。
The best way to live a long life is to uphold the right views and avoid covetous thoughts.
- Jing Si Aphorisms
