第322期明覺   文:道然法師| 2014-02-19

引言:


「善財童子五十三參」的故事,出自被譽為「經中之王」的《大方廣佛華嚴經》〈入法界品〉。說的是善財童子經由文殊師利菩薩的指點,為修習「菩薩云何學菩薩行,云何修菩薩道」,遍訪四海五洲,遊歷了一百一十個城市,參訪了五十三位善知識。其中第二十七參來到普陀山,於觀音菩薩處證入大悲行法門。自古以來,善財童子被譽為佛子求法的典範。

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


—By Ven. Dao Ran


昔有童子號善財


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


文殊啟示證行願


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


二十七參到普陀


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


欲離怖畏觀自在


Hoping to perceive Thusness, and know true peace.


勇猛菩薩跏趺坐


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


大悲行門利眾生


His power of Great Compassion benefiting all sentient beings.


平等教化不退轉


Whom were all taught equally, protecting them from regression.


淨光明網難思議


Nets of radiance and purity, so inconceivable!


行者當效善財行


The Buddhists should follow the practices of Sudhana,


聞法心悟得相續


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!
