你知道為何休息再多還是覺得很疲累? 問:…

你知道為何休息再多還是覺得很疲累?

問:
「我每天工作,回到家後都累趴了,什麼事也幹不了!就算睡了一覺,隔天床後還是覺得很疲累,每天的疲累感,加上工作壓力,導致我常常精神恍惚,家事跟工作都顧不好,怎麼辦呢? 」
.
答:
當一個人缺乏能量,表現出的首先會是疲累的感覺,再嚴重些,就會產生身體上的病癥,好比你去摸能量不足的人的手,就會發現這個人的手是比較冰冷的;如果是能量比較充足的人,手掌心是熱的。
.
那什麼是能量?
比如在我們小時候,經常會看到電壓供電不足時,電燈忽明忽暗,亮的時候,是電壓供得很足;暗的時候,就是電壓不夠了。用來比喻人體也是一樣的道理。.
.
我見過一些在寒冷地區,特別是西藏,那裡的人,他們用一塊保暖性很強的動物皮,包在關節這個位置,到了冬天,「寒腿」就在膝關節上表現出來,所以在西藏很多老人家走路都好是像剛受過傷一樣。還有很多年齡並不老,最年輕的才35歲,也是一拐一瘸地來的,他們就是身體嚴重缺乏能量啊。
.
我的健康建議:
我建議大家來試試修練「八卦內功」,練了一段時間「八卦」之後,你可能就會發現——「欸,我走路竟然能跑起來了。」
.
因此「走八卦」對於補充能量特別有好處。
最後祝福大家都能有所受益,永遠健康、幸福快樂!

#八卦內功、#修行好處、#工作、#充電、#能量滿滿、#釋放壓力、#放鬆rnrnDo you know why you still feel fatigued even after you rested?

Question:

Everyday, after I return home from work, I felt exhausted and can’t do anything else! Even after a night’s sleep, I still feel very tired the next day. Adding to the stress at work, I am constantly in a daze and cannot manage both family and work matters. What shall I do?

Reply:
Energy Bagua practice can be a good choice for your situation.

Do many people experience the lack of energy despite regular sleep?
When one lacks energy, the first obvious sign is general lethargy. If it becomes serious, illness can result. Just like when you feel the hands of people with insufficient energy, you will find the hand is relatively cold; if the energy is adequate, it is warm.

What is energy?
For example, when we were young, we often saw that when the electrical voltage was insufficient, the electric light flickered but it remained bright when there was enough voltage supplied. The same can be said about the human body.

I’ve seen that in some cold regions, especially in Tibet, people use a patch of warm animal skin to wrap over their body joints. In winter, when “frozen limbs” are prevalent, such animal skin wraps are a common sight on the knees of the elderly people in Tibet, who look as if they have just been injured. There are still many people who came walking with a limp even though they are not old, the youngest being 35 years of age; these people seriously lack energy!

My health advice:
I suggest that you try to practice Energy Bagua. After an extended period of practice, you may discover that you actually run instead of walk.

Energy Bagua is exceptionally effective at replenishing your energy.
Lastly, I wish that everyone can reap benefits from practice and always remain healthy, blissful and joyous!

Welcome to share and refer the above to your loved ones and friends, as more sharing begets greater blessings ~

We cordially invite everyone to practice to greater health~

Confucius laughed and said that’s wonderful!

“In fact, Han Yu (a Chinese writer, poet, and government official of the Tang Dynasty) also came,” the boss said.

你也想轉運、改命嗎?
.
曾經,有個中年男子,他生了嚴重的皮膚病_牛皮癬,牛皮癬長在他背上像籃球那麼大,他每天撓啊撓,都撓出血水了,尤其是越到晚上越發奇癢難受,撓了後就落下很多很多像魚鱗一樣一片片的皮屑,不論看過中醫或西醫都沒用,每天痛苦得不得了。
.
後來,有個老中醫告訴他:「您這個病要做功德才行啊」。
因為這個機緣,他跟著一個鄰居來到我們禪堂要求幹活,幫忙建禪堂,裝潢、刷漆等。
.
他每天不間斷的幫忙做苦力,過了一個多月,他兩邊的臉頰都曬黑了,牛皮癬基本上也好了五成以上。之後他更報名參加菩提的八天健身班,十期之後,那個牛皮癬就完全好了。

大家想想,是什麼原因讓他的病好的?
也許是真誠感動佛菩薩,也許是因為大量的運動量,快速了身體代謝排毒的功能?也許是禪堂的健康素食,改變了他不健康的飲食方式,也許是行善的功德,消除了他累世的因果業力?
.
無論答案是什麼,大家要的結果都是健康和快樂。
.
讓我們在這次的週末共修中一起來探討,如何改變自己的「命運」吧!歡迎大家一起來交流,祝福朋友們健康、吉祥、幸福、快樂!

#週六共修預告、#功德與命運、#金菩提宗師開示、#禪修rnrnDo you wish to change your life?

Once, there was a middle-aged man with a severe skin disorder, Psoriasis. The plagues on his back merged and grew to the size of a basketball. These lesions were so itchy and painful that he scratched daily till they bleed and develop pus. When the itch became unbearable at night, he would scratch and cause shedding of scales in sheets. He sought medical treatment from Western doctors and Chinese physicians but to no avail and he continued to suffer daily.

Later, an old Chinese physician told him, “You need to do more good deeds to cure this disease.” He adhered to his advice and followed a neighbor to our meditation hall to help in the renovation and painting.

He worked hard every day. After a month, his cheeks became tanned but his skin condition improved by more than 50 percent. He subsequently attended the 8-day Health and Fitness class. After the tenth session, his pretty much recovered.

Let’s ponder the reasons behind his recovery. Perhaps it was his sincerity that moved Buddha and bodhisattvas. Perhaps it was the strenuous physical activities that expedited his metabolism and detoxification? Perhaps it was the center’s vegetarian diet that changed his unhealthy diet, or his accumulation of merits that eliminated his karmic debts?

Whatever the answer is, everyone hopes for health and happiness.
Let’s explore together how to change our “destiny” in this coming Saturday’s group practice. Welcome everyone to join us.
May all be healthy, auspicious and happy!

九年的中風終於恢復健康了 . 他是一個音…

九年的中風終於恢復健康了
.
他是一個音樂愛好者,因為腦中風、記憶力衰退,記不得歌譜,也忘了該如何正常生活,因為一段緣份他與菩提相遇,也奇蹟似的幫他重新拿起了闊別十多年的笛子,是什麼方法幫助他告別病痛、重拾健康呢?一起來看看他的故事吧。
———————————————————————————————————
.
我叫鐘紫山 ,來自馬來西亞,今年61歲。
我曾在2008年中風,後來經過醫生治療,行動上基本恢復正常,但腦裡面一直有一個5毛錢硬幣大小的血塊未除,導致我的記憶力減退,思維不像以前那樣敏捷,尤其是短期發生的事情記不住,講話也詞不達意,還會有些口吃。醫生說我目前的狀況,在醫學上是無有效的治療藥物。
.
今年有幸看到《禪修與健康》雜誌,跟著走了幾次「八卦」後,感覺很好,就決定報名參加2017年8月的菩提健身班。健身班的第2天,我就覺得精神好了很多,思維也比較清晰。
.
課程第3天駕車來禪堂的路上,我決定等一下要嘗試著帶領大家背誦《金菩提聖經》。於是,我利用45分鐘的路程時間,嘗試背誦。真沒想我竟然全背下來了! 這是中風以後9年的時間裡,我第一次能夠完整記憶。當天下午,我咳出了一些帶有小顆粒的痰,很臭,但喉嚨卻感覺舒服了很多。
.
課程第 4 天, 折磨了我十多年的脖子僵硬和疼痛,竟然徹底改善完全輕鬆了!頭部轉動的幅度恢復正常了。這幾天我的睡眠時間減少了,可是每天起來都覺得精神飽滿。體重也在逐漸下降,到結業那天,共減掉4.6公斤。之前,我每天須服2次的降血糖藥,血糖還一直在7-9mmol/L 之間;可在課程期間,沒有服降血糖藥,血糖也沒有超過9mmol/L(編者注:菩提禪修不提倡自行停藥、減藥,請遵循醫囑)。
.
課程第7天,原本沒有辦法長時間盤坐的我,能全程盤坐誦念佛號了。中午修練了《大光明修持法》後,我又再次咳出了一口痰,之後整個喉嚨感覺很輕鬆、很通暢。
.
8天半的課程,我「辟穀」了一個多星期,全天不喝水也不覺口乾,不吃不喝卻又精力充沛(編者注:「辟谷」是禪修過程中出現的一種可遇而不可求的現象。表現為不吃飯或者少吃飯,但感覺不渴、不餓,睡眠明顯減少,而且精力充沛、身心輕鬆)。
.
現在,我身邊的朋友都發現我講話比之前流利了,記憶力提升了、思維也清晰了。中風後,曾經耳熟能詳的音樂旋律都沒辦法記起,禪修後,現在竟一一浮現出來了。

就在結業當天,我決定挑戰自己,重拾放下十多年的笛子為大家演奏,我挑戰成功了!我太開心了! 感恩金菩提宗師!我一定會繼續堅持修練。

#見證禪修、#馬來西亞、#中風、#菩提健身班、#八卦內功、#恢復健康、#快樂rnrn[Malaysia] Speedy recovery from the side effects of stroke of 9 years ago and a stiff neck that troubled him for more than a decade.

A music enthusiast was able to easily play his flute with melodious Bodhi music after giving up more than ten years ago. This music marked the end of pain and suffering for him, heralding a new life of good health. Here is the wonderful sharing of the meditation journey of Zhong Zi Shan.
My name is Zhong Zi Shan and I live in Malaysia. I am 61 years old. I suffered a stroke in 2008, but was fortunate to regain most of my mobility after treatment. But a blood clot, a size of a 50-cent coin remained in my brain, which affected the clarity of my thoughts and a deteriorating memory. I was very poor at remembering events that just happened. My speech also suffered as I could not seem to convey my meaning and I also stutter. The doctor told me that there was no medication that could improve my conditions effectively.

This year, I had the good fortune to come across the “Meditation and Health” magazine. I first signed up for Energy Bagua. After practicing it for a while, the benefits are good and I decided to proceed for the Health and Happiness retreat in Aug 2017, to deepen my understanding of Bodhi Meditation. From the second day, I felt a vast improvement in my energy level, and my thoughts also became more organized and clear.

As I was driving to the meditation center on the third day of the retreat, I decided to attempt to lead the class in reciting “Grandmaster JinBodhi’s Golden Words”. I tried to memorize it during the 45 min drive, and the miracle happened – I was able to memorize all of it during that short period of time! This is the first time that I am able to memorize anything ever since the stroke 9 years ago. That afternoon, I coughed out some smelly phlegm that had some small particles in it, after which my throat felt very comfortable.
On the fourth day of the retreat, I experienced a vast improvement in my neck stiffness that had plagued me for more than a decade. I was finally able to relax fully! There was also an improvement in the degree to which I could turn my neck. I have been sleeping fewer hours this week, but each morning I felt more refreshed and energetic when I wake up. I also lost some weight – about 4.6kg by the end of the retreat. Before the class, I took medication twice a day to control my blood sugar level which hovered between 7-9mmol/L. During the retreat, I stopped my medication and yet my blood sugar level never exceeded 9mmol/L. (Editor’s note: Bodhi Meditation does not encourage students to stop or reduce dosage of medication without consulting the doctor. Please follow doctor’s instructions).
While we were watching Master’s “The Empowerment of Compassion”, I too experienced Master’s energy blessings. Tears ran down my cheeks, mucus flowed freely from my nose, and I felt what seemed like an electric current flowing within my head. This persisted for two days. I also noticed that the small red dots that were on my inner knees had also faded quite a bit after the energy blessing.

On the seventh day, I was able to sit cross-legged while chanting. Previously I was not able to sit cross-legged for a long period of time. While practicing the Meditation of Greater Illumination in the afternoon, I coughed out more phlegm and felt a strong sense of comfort and relaxation in my throat after that.

From the start of the 8.5-day retreat, I went into spontaneous fasting for more than a week. I was not thirsty even though I had not drunk anything the whole day. I felt energetic without food or drink the whole duration. (Editor’s note: Spontaneous fasting is a natural occurrence in the process of meditation and cannot be self-imposed. During the fasting period, the practitioner would eat very little or not eat at all, yet he or she would not feel hungry or thirsty. The hours of sleep would also be reduced, yet he or she would feel energetic and at ease). After the retreat, friends around me also noticed that I have become more eloquent, my thoughts are clearer and my memory improved. Before meditation, I could never remember the melody of music pieces that sounded really familiar to me. Yet now, they are all starting to resurface in my memory. On the day of graduation, I took on a challenge to pick up the flute which I have stopped playing for more than a decade, and played a song for all my classmates. It was a success! I am filled with happiness!

《分享》送給孩子最珍貴的禮物
.
分享一個網友發給我的真實故事….
相信,孩子不只是個孩子,孩子也許是來與你學習,共同成長的小仙女、小菩薩。
.
————————————————————————————————
前幾天看到師父發的一則帖子說:「把孩子交給佛菩薩,菩薩會教他做人,給他指路,給他呵護!這是送給孩子最珍貴的禮物。」我心裡的感觸非常強烈!
.
我家寶貝女兒天生好強,好似遺傳著我的基因,小小年紀便要去闖世界,離開舒適的家,離開美麗的溫哥華,去到零下三十多度的加拿大東部。學期快結束時,女兒又告訴我,假期想去非洲當援助者。我心想:「一個十八歲的小姑娘,要去非洲?」(當時的我聽到後非常害怕)
.
第一年,女兒因為帶著工作前去,每週20小時打工、修了五門功課,有時只睡4.5個小時,但也熬下來了,我心裡還真捨不得。
.
很巧的是,她剛進入大學的時候,我也同時進入了「菩提禪修」這所綜合性的大學!
情急之下,我求助於禪堂的老師,讓老師給女兒開導開導!要離開時,剛巧瞥見大廳上掛著師父的法像。我一個念頭:「我既無才又無財,不能貢獻些什麼。那麼就將我最寶貴的女兒,送給佛菩薩吧。」
.
非常感恩,通過老師的引導,解開女兒要闖天下的心結。
『因為女兒覺得世界太黑暗,太多人們生活在貧困線以下,少數人掌握金錢,並且不斷在剝削貧苦的人們。她要去看看非洲的人是生活在怎樣的條件下!她因此不想讀書,因為不願成為少數富商的賺錢工具與機器。』
.
老師告訴女兒:「要想改變貧困,只有靠教育!妳將來可以選擇服務的方向!去幫助那些貧困地區的人們!」女兒於是明白了自己的方向。
.
第一年暑假,女兒申請了政府資助,為期十個星期的「學生計畫」。
得到的結論是,她說:「媽媽,人光有興趣愛好是不夠的!一定要有一個可以養活自己的本領!」我相信這是佛菩薩給女兒的引領,教導她的生存之道。
.
第二年暑假,女兒又報名了「瓜地馬拉」45天的支援者。
舉凡機票、捐款、生活費,一切費用都由她自理,沒花一點我的錢。我感動莫明啊!女兒真的長大了,也獨立了!
想想從前,女兒是大家手掌心裡的寶,沒有吃過苦,更沒過過苦日子,而現在竟然能在雞、鴨群裡自在晃悠,還可以無動於衷的吃飯!看著女兒很快地適應生活、適應環境、並且幫助建路、教學等⋯我再次的感恩佛菩薩,幫我教導女兒成為這麼乖巧又懂事的品格優秀者。
.
第三年的暑假,女兒帶我去了中美洲「哥斯大黎加」旅遊。
我就像回到和女兒一樣的年紀,享受著一片自然、沒有破壞的土地,淳樸的民情。我體驗了當鳥飛翔的感覺!風在耳邊呼呼響。
「空中纜繩、漂流、原始森林中騎馬看日落,聽著尼加拉瓜女總統的故事游活火山…等。」
這是我夢裡都沒敢想的生活,竟然是女兒幫我完成的夢想~~
.
女兒大學四年結束時,護照上已留下了滿滿近十個中美洲國家、地區的輝煌印記!
.
感恩佛菩薩讓孩子瞭解世界,了解環保的理念,最重要的是做人的道理。
現在我的女兒,在菩薩引領的歷練中,己經有了賺錢的本領,佛菩薩讓她知道她要的是什麼!我把原先準備好要供女兒讀大學的學費,恭恭敬敬地在佛前點上「祈福光明燈」~
願「佛光普照,讓女兒學業有成,服務社會,利益眾生!」
.
心中無限感恩!只因當時那一念,把孩子供養給了佛菩薩!這麼些年都非常順利,超出我的預期目標很遠很遠了!
現在想來,孩子是獨立的個體,根本不屬於我的私人財產,我還自以為是的把她送出去!但是我送對地方了!
.
因為有佛光指引!我和女兒的人生路上,總是走在最快速安全的道路上!
因為有師父和佛菩薩的加持和呵護!受益無限!無限感恩!

#分享、#送給孩子最珍貴的禮物、#加持、#光明燈、#菩薩的溫暖rnrnSharing – Giving our children the most precious gift
.
I’d like to share a true story by a netizen …
Believe that your child is not merely a kid, but a small fairy, or a little Bodhisattva who has come to learn together with you and grow along with you.

————————————————————————————-
A few days ago, I saw a post by Master”.. entrust your children to the Buddha and Bodhisattvas. The Bodhisattvas will teach him how to be a good person, guide him on the right path, and shower him with care! This is the most precious gift for our children.” Hearing that, strong emotions welled up in my heart.
.
My precious daughter was born with a strong character, as if she’s inherited my genes. At a tender age, she’d aspired to conquer the world. She left the comfort of home and beautiful Vancouver to go to a place with – 30 degrees Celsius climate to the east of Canada. At the end of one school semester, she informed me that she’d like to go to Africa as a volunteer during the vacation. I’d thought, “An 18-year-old girl wanting to go to Africa?” (I was most fearful when I heard that).
.
During the first year, my daughter juggled between work and studies. Every week, she would work 20 hours and cover five academic subjects, sometimes sleeping only 4.5 hours. She did settle in but I was rather reluctant and my heart ached for her.
.
Coincidentally, my daughter entered the university at the same time that I had entered the “comprehensive university” of Bodhi Meditation!
.
Feeling very anxious and worried, I turned to the teacher at Bodhi Meditation to help enlighten my daughter! As we were leaving, we chanced upon Master’s portrait in the main hall. I had a thought, “I have no talent, and no wealth to contribute. Thus I will gift my most precious daughter to the Buddha and Bodhisattvas.”
.
I was immensely grateful that through the teacher’s guidance, the knot in my daughter’s heart to conquer the world was resolved.
“As my daughter felt that the world was too bleak, with too many people living below the poverty line, led by a small group of people that controlled the wealth by constantly exploiting the poor. She had wanted to go and witness the living conditions of Africans! As a result, she’d wanted to give up her studies as she did not want to become part of the small group of wealthy merchants’ money-making tools and machines.”
.
The teacher advised my daughter, “To change poverty, the only way is through education! You can choose your path of contribution in the future! And that is to help people in the poverty-prone places!”. My daughter thus realized her life purpose and path.
.
During the first summer vacation, my daughter applied for and joined a government-sponsored 10-week student program.
The conclusion was, she said, “Mom, it is not enough to be interested and passionate! People need to develop the ability to support themselves!” I believe this was the Buddha’s and Bodhisattvas’ guidance to my daughter, teaching her the way to survive.
.
During the second summer vacation, my daughter signed up for a 45-day volunteer project in Guatemala. She took care of all the tickets, donations, and living expenses, and did not use any of my money. I was touched beyond words! My daughter had really grown up and was also independent!
.
As we looked back, my daughter was the apple of our eyes and never experienced hardships and austerity. Yet now, she’s at ease tending to chickens and ducks, and having her meals spontaneously! Seeing that my daughter adapted quickly to the lifestyle, environment, helping with the building of roads, teaching etc., I extend my sincere gratitude to the Buddha and the Bodhisattvas for guiding her into becoming such a well-behaved, sensible and outstanding person.
.
During her third year summer vacation, my daughter brought me to Costa Rica in Central America on a trip.
It was like going back in time when I was my daughter’s age, enjoying the expanse of nature where there is no destruction of the land and when sentiments were wholesome. I experienced the ecstasy of flight like a bird, complete with wind swirling in the ear!
.
Zip-lining, rafting, horse-riding in the primeval forest while watching the sunset, listening to the narration by the female Nicaraguan president on her live volcanic exploits – these experiences were beyond my wildest dreams and unexpectedly, my daughter helped me fulfill them.
.
At the conclusion of my daughter’s four-year university curriculum, her passport had been gloriously imprinted with immigration records of nearly 10 Americas countries and regions!
.
I’m immensely grateful to the Buddha and Bodhisattvas for facilitating my child’s understanding of this world, including environmental conservationism and most importantly the tenets of life.
Under the guidance of Bodhisattvas, my daughter now has the capacity to earn her keep as well as define her life purpose! I used the savings that was intended for her college education and respectfully offered a light before the Buddha. I prayed that my daughter attains her academic qualifications, be of service to the society and benefit sentient beings, under the blessed illumination of the Buddha.
.
I’m infinitely grateful from the bottom of my heart! With a momentous thought, I’d “given” my child to the Buddha and Bodhisattvas! Since then, it had been smooth-sailing for us and the results have far exceeded my expectations.
.
In retrospect, every child is an independent person. He/ she does not belong to us, nor are they our private “property”. I actually felt that I’d sent her away then, but to the right place!
.
With the Buddha’s illumination as guiding beacons, my daughter’s and my life journeys are always swift and smooth toward our goals! These are all due to Master’s, Buddha’s and Bodhisattvas’ blessings and protection! We have benefitted immeasurably from your compassion and are immensely grateful!
