超越的應對

超越的應對   林鈺堂       簡繁轉換 - 繁體

 

 

一般的應對
為自我的成見所限
難以體會及顧及對方
往往只順自己的性情
即使學佛者
所求所作也多是但願如意

從一己出發是不可能達到解脫的

佛道的修行
在生活中的與人應對
應該依佛法來
視對方為佛或眾生
而自己的應對
則依法恭敬承事或悲憫化導

若能實踐這樣的
超越一己的應對於生活中
便能在生活中漸漸進步
而走出「自我纏縛」的老套

Responding in Transcendence

Yutang Lin

 

Ordinarily people's responses
Are limited by personal preconceptions
And thus could hardly be sensitive to
        and taking into considerations
        others' feelings and interests
Often people act out only according to their own feelings
Even for those learning the Buddha's way
What they seek and what they do are mostly just to fulfill their own wishes

Acting out of one's self-interests can never attain emancipation

Practicing the Buddha's way
While responding to others in daily life
Should be in concord with Dharma teachings
Regarding others as Buddhas or sentient beings
And thus one's responses should be, according to the Dharma,
Either in respectful attendance or compassionate guidance

If one can practice in daily life such responding to others
Transcending self-centered limitations and considerations
Then one will be able to advance on the enlightenment path
Gradually through daily life experiences
And walk out from the old circle of self-entanglements
