平等悲心与胜观智慧

  佛陀殊胜的教法在2500年后的今天仍俱吸引力,并依旧适应予现代人的感知。

  他是如何去概括描述我们的困境?

  他见到我们人类从出生到死亡是完全忽略了自己的真正本性,取而代之的只有不断的不安、不满、没有安全感、缺乏所需等等苦受。

  我们其实都在寻找着同一宝藏,不是金矿,而是真正恒久的快乐,从轮回中醒觉而证悟,我们首先需要从目前的心理状态变成为生动清醒的意识,为什么?因为当下的一刹那不但含藏着所有苦与乐的种子,更是同时俱备解脱觉悟的潜能。

  那么,我们应该灌溉那一颗种子?

  佛法内含科学,通过禅修,我们学会转化凡尘俗世的执迷和顽强习气,并亲身体验到内在佛性:每一个众生都本俱佛性(俱生清净本性)只是暂时被无明障敝,一旦我们能认知及了悟这本性,我们就能转苦成乐,开展出仁爱,智慧及慈悲,成就与佛陀无异的果位。

  今日就让我们深思反省一下,究竟是什么构成这无明及无知的生活,我们需要胆量去质疑这问题!其实佛法修持就是一种自救疗法,所以在这紧急关头(当前急务,事不宜迟)请马上积极采取行动,当下正是解脱的大好时机。

Topic: Impartial compassion and wisdom with insight

Lecture by: Ven. Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

After 2500 years, the Buddha’s profound and timeless message still appeals to our modern everyday common sense. How did he sum up our predicament? He saw that, from cradle to grave, we human beings completely ignore our true nature. Instead, we suffer from ongoing feelings of insecurity, lack and dissatisfaction.

We’re all seeking the same ‘buried treasure’ — not gold, but genuine lifelong happiness. To awaken to enlightenment, first we should become vividly conscious of our present state of mind. Why? Because this present moment contains all the seeds of our future happiness and sorrow, as well as our imminent potential for liberation and enlightenment. Which seeds shall we water?

Buddhism is the 'science of what lies within'. Through meditation, we learn to transform ourselves by turning our fixation away from the busy outside world and examining what lies within — our Buddha Nature. This natural state of mind dwells within each and every one of us, yet it is temporarily concealed. Once we recognize and actualize its basic goodness, we can turn our sufferings into joy, unfold loving kindness, wisdom, and compassion and become identical with all the Buddhas.

Today, let’s take a deep look at what constitutes unenlightened living. This inquiry will take guts on our part. In fact, Dharma practice takes “self-help therapy” to a whole new level.  We’re in a state of emergency. We need to act now and our steps must be bold. It’s time for liberation.
