放捨藍圖 Renouncing Blueprints

放捨藍圖   林鈺堂 簡繁轉換 - 繁體

   ──大圓滿之心要

 

心中的不安
根本上是因為有一份藍圖
那是由一些明確的想法、希望
和一些自己也說不清楚的愛惡及欲念
所交織成的

任何藍圖
都不可能涵蓋實際的一切
也不免與現實的演變有差距及衝突
愈抓緊一己的藍圖
就愈要飽受失望與痛苦的衝擊

看清人生的一切都不是有人能掌控的
互為因緣的現象大海中
歷歷呈現的却是不斷地如幻逝去
了悟藍圖之有窮及實際之無限
放捨藍圖以融入現實
才是心中平寧清明的正途

不再存有妄執所織之一己藍圖
則無有由分別愛憎所起之不滿
此即所謂之「本來清淨大圓滿」
大圓滿只是法界之本來面目

補述

  此作公佈後,在美之弟子心平即得一夢,說我寫了一首詩,題為(心經),而彼因平素不上網,並不知剛有此作。在寫此文時,未附說明:此作非尋思之作,而實乃修行生活中參悟之心得。此類發乎證悟之文,有些修行人在誦讀之際可以領受到加持。本來無意作此說明,但既有此夢兆,即補述之,並加入副標題,以示此乃大圓滿之心要。若能徹見之中之涵義,則不僅世間執盡捨,法執亦蕩然無存。超越言教之佛法方是真實之際。

Renouncing Blueprints

 

Yutang Lin

 

 

Feeling ill at ease in mind
Fundamentally that is due to the presence of a blueprint
Interwoven by some definite thoughts and wishes
Together with preferences and dislikes
And desires that one could hardly articulate precisely

Any blueprint will find it impossible
To encompass everything in reality
And to avoid distortion from and conflict with evolution of facts
The tighter one holds onto one's personal blueprint
The more one will suffer from disappointments and impacts of pains

Seeing clearly that all things in life are beyond human manipulations
In the ocean of phenomena where all factors are mutually affecting one another
Whatever appears vividly are yet incessantly disappearing like illusions
Comprehended the limitations of blueprints and the boundlessness of reality
Renouncing blueprints in order to merge into oneness with reality
Thus is the right path to attain tranquility and clarity of mind

No longer sustaining personal blueprints interwoven by deluded grasping
Then there is no dissatisfaction arisen from distinctions and preferences held
This is the so-called "Great Perfection in Original Purity"
Great Perfection is simply the original state of the Dharmadhatu

Amendment:

Right after this work was publicized disciple Xin Ping in USA had a dream, saying that I had written a poem entitled "Heart Sutra." Usually she does not check emails so she did not know that I had written this work. While I wrote this work I did not explain that it is not a work based on results of thinking but a revelation of one's comprehension that occurred in life of Dharma practices. A work of this kind that is based on one's comprehension of truth may convey blessings to some practitioners when they read it. Originally I did not intend to give this explanation. Now that this dream occurred, so I stated it in this amendment, and I also added a subtitle to this work to indicate that it contains the heart essence of Great Perfection. If one can comprehend the significance of this work, then not only all worldly grasping will be renounced, but also all Dharma-related grasping will leave no traces behind. Only Dharma beyond conceptual teachings is the reality.
