心之道
  • 心不跟隨現下煩惱,不隨就不會生滅。
  • 學佛,就是學著拭去塵埃。
  • 不要看小小的慈悲,它是無盡的善心、無盡的智慧、無盡的接引。
  • 禪修,讓思緒單純,讓靈性清楚顯現。
  • 念頭在心頭,不舒服;轉個念頭,心頭就開。
  • 煩惱如同下雨,當雨過天晴,雨復何在?
  • 懂得消化煩惱,便能讓生活自在逍遙,讓生命更寬廣。
  • 負面是惡業,消極是惡業,悲觀是惡業;正面積極樂觀,就是生活禪。
  • 生命是不斷流動地,安靜下來,才能沉澱,才能傾聽。
  • 不執著、不妄想,當下即圓滿。

禪修,享受心中的和平

圖 / 三乘佛學院文 / 文獻中心

因為世界宗教博物館這個平台,開啟了我們推動「愛與和平地球家」的使命,然而,在這個過程中,我們發現如果內心沒有和平,這個世界不可能和平,而心的和平則要從內心的安定開始,當我們真正發現內在的愛與慈悲的時候,我們才會真實地推動和平。

為了推動心的和平,所以我們在全世界推動禪修,希望每個人都能夠走向心的道路,走向心的和平。地球只有一個,我們把地球變成一個家庭,而我們都是彼此相依共存的一家人,共同來保護地球與人類。

生命中最珍貴的,就是發現了「心」,所以邀請大家一起走這個心的道路,一同成就心的圓滿,得到最神聖的生命的呈現。怎麼去發現我們的心?心的道路怎麼走?就是從禪修著手,每天至少早晚禪坐15分鐘,或者半個小時至一個小時專注地禪坐;在禪修之外的日常生活中,我們就是專注地工作;專注的時候我們就會寧靜,專注的時候我們就能享受無聲之聲。

Chan Practice is Enjoying Peace of Heart

Our Taipei based Museum of World Religions (www.mwr.org.tw) inspired me to launch the “Global Family of Love and Peace” (www.gflp.org), an NGO with the mission of world-wide Interfaith dialogue, meditation and peace work. As we embarked on this mission, we realized soon enough that if our heart is not at peace, this world cannot be at peace either. But how do we arrive at peace of heart? We have to start from practicing concentration, which leads to inner stability and stillness. Once we tap into the well-spring of love and compassion that flows from a heart that is at peace, we are truly ready to engage ourselves in peace-work in the world.

We promote Chan meditation around the world in the hope that this will help people walk on the path leading to peace of heart. We only have this one Earth, this home that we all share. We are all members of one global family, and we all rely on each of its members to protect this world and every life on it.

Discovering our heart, the core of our being, is the most precious event in our life, the priceless pearl. Therefore I invite each and everyone of you to walk on this path of the heart together. Let us find the fullness of our heart and experience the sacredness of all life. But how can we find our heart? How can we walk on this path of the heart? It starts from the practice of meditation. Try to sit at least 15 minutes in meditation every morning and evening, or 30 minutes or even one hour if possible. In addition to your Chan practice in daily life, concentrate well on your work, on everything that is at hand. Concentration helps us to become focused and to settle down. When we are fully concentrated we can enjoy the sound of no sound, and taste true peace of heart.
