第322期明觉   文:道然法师| 2014-02-19

引言:


「善财童子五十三参」的故事,出自被誉为「经中之王」的《大方广佛华严经》〈入法界品〉。说的是善财童子经由文殊师利菩萨的指点,为修习「菩萨云何学菩萨行,云何修菩萨道」,遍访四海五洲,游历了一百一十个城市,参访了五十三位善知识。其中第二十七参来到普陀山,于观音菩萨处证入大悲行法门。自古以来,善财童子被誉为佛子求法的典范。

Homage to the Youth Sudhana-śreṣṭhi-dāraka in His Twenty-seventh Practice And Study 


—By Ven. Dao Ran


昔有童子号善财


A long time ago, there was a young Buddhist named Sudhana,


文殊启示证行愿


Who was exhorted by Bodhisattva Mañjuśrī to pursue and fulfill his religious vows in the path of Samantabhadra.


二十七参到普陀


He came to Pu Tuo Mountain in his  twenty-seventh practice and study,


欲离怖畏观自在


Hoping to perceive Thusness, and know true peace.


勇猛菩萨跏趺坐


There was Vigorous Bodhisattva and he was meditating in the lotus posture, 


大悲行门利众生


His power of Great Compassion benefiting all sentient beings.


平等教化不退转


Whom were all taught equally, protecting them from regression.


净光明网难思议


Nets of radiance and purity, so inconceivable!


行者当效善财行


The Buddhists should follow the practices of Sudhana,


闻法心悟得相续


Learn the Dharma and progress onward to enlightenment.


功德方便悉具足


When you are endowed with merits and skillful-means,


成就菩提登彼岸


Enlightenment will be accomplished and the Nirvana finally reached!
