《六度之禪定》
.
.
宋朝大學士蘇東坡,學富五車,才高八斗,更是一位虔誠的佛教徒。他和隔江的金山寺佛印宗師相處得很好,經常談經論道。
.
有一天,東坡突然靈光一閃,隨手寫了一首詩偈:「稽首天中天,毫光照大千;八風吹不動,穩坐紫金蓮。」他再三吟詠,感到非常的滿意,於是派書僮將此偈送去給佛印宗師。
.
蘇東坡非常期待宗師的「佳音」,不久書僮回來了,東坡急忙將信打開一看,只見宗師歪歪斜斜地寫了「放屁」兩個大字。「豈有此理」蘇東坡瞪大眼睛拍桌:「我找佛印理論去」馬上坐著渡船找佛印理論去了。
.
船才靠岸,就看見佛印宗師已站在江邊含笑相迎。宗師哈哈大笑:「我的大學士,你不是說自己『八風吹不動』嗎?怎麼一個屁就把你打過江來了呢」?蘇東坡到此才恍然大悟,只好低頭不語,唯有羞愧而已!
.
咱們修行若想外不著相、內不動心,練就「八風吹不動」的禪定功夫,請給自己一點時間,聽聽我所講述的禪修的重要性,以及堅持禪修能為人生帶來什麼樣的益處!
.

(備註:所謂八風,就是我們日常生活中經常所遭遇到的八種境界的風,它們的名稱是:稱、譏、毀、譽、利、衰、苦、樂。)

The Six Perfections – Meditation

During the Song Dynasty, there was a talented and knowledgeable statesman called Su Dongpo. He was a devout Buddhist and was good friends with Master Fo Yin who lived in the Jinshan Temple across the river. They got together very often to engage in philosophical discussions.

One day, Su Dongpo had an inspiration and wrote a poem:
“As I pay my deepest respect to the great Buddha,
His bright illumination lights up innumerable worlds in the universe;
I am seated firmly on the golden purple lotus,
And nothing can move me, including the eight winds.”

He was very proud of it and wanted to share his creation with his good friend. So he wrote down the poem and dispatched his errand boy to deliver it to Master Fo Yin.

When the boy returned, he took the letter eagerly, expecting to see praises for his brilliance. To his dismay, there was only one big word on the letter: “Bullshit!” He was outraged. Immediately he set off on his boat to dispute with the Master.

As the boat approached, Su Dongpo saw Master Fo Yin standing at the shore smiling at him. “My great statesman! Didn’t you say that you are unmoved even by the eight winds? Why is it that with a single word, I managed to move you across the river?” At that moment, Su Dongpo realized his folly and felt ashamed by his arrogance.

Those of us who are aspiring to master the skill of serenity and be able to remain unperturbed by external factors (what is called “unmovable by the eight winds”), please take some time to listen to what I have to say about the importance and benefits of meditation.

(Note: “Eight winds” refers to eight worldly conditions that we go through in our daily lives: praise, blame, fame, disgrace, gain, loss, suffering and happiness.)

閉關是什麼?
.
作為修行人,對真理的茫然與疑惑,是最可怕的。
因為,「信心」決定了你修行的高度。
.
而要想破除無知、無明,需要的是光明。
咱們修練「大光明」的目的,是為了把我們內在的黑暗照亮。
並且培養一顆慈悲心,最終成就生命的高度。

What’s a Meditation Retreat?

Ignorance and doubt about the universal truths are the nemesis of dharma cultivators.
This is because the level of confidence will determines the level we can attain in our cultivation.

We need bright illumination to overcome ignorance and darkness.

The objective of practicing the “Meditation of Greater Illumination” is to chase away the inner darkness and illuminate our hearts.
It also cultivates compassion in us and eventually lifts us to an elevated state of existence.

腦內開發,你沒聽說過的秘法?
.
.
科學家研究發現,人類的大腦擁有極高的智慧,但實際上最多只使用了百分之十,還有百分之九十沒有開發。因此,我們都是菁英,都擁有獨特的才能,絕對有能力可以釋放更大的能量。
.
2006年7月,美國科學家Dr. Richard Davidson、Dr. Antoine Lutz與Dr. Al Shapere作了一個試驗。由兩組試驗組進行實驗,一組由8位具有15到40年「禪修」經驗的喇嘛進行試驗;另一組人員是由10位「學生」所組成,此學生們之前沒有任何禪修的經驗,只有在試驗前一週接受短暫的冥想訓練。

試驗結果:
「試驗喇嘛組」和「對照學生組」,兩組間伽瑪腦波頻率強度是否有不同,結果試驗喇嘛組平均伽瑪腦波頻率強度,是對照學生組平均約達8倍的強度!
而經過多年禪修,表現最好的喇嘛,其伽瑪腦波頻率強度,是對照組學生伽瑪腦波頻率的13倍!

此事實證實禪修的效果,並非單純是心情上的放鬆,而是禪修對大腦腦波之活動頻率有直接的影響,透過持續不斷的「禪修」,進行身心靈的整合,彙聚正面能量。當身體暢通了,心靈也通了,腦袋當然也就通了。自然能孕育出全盤的理解力,與宏觀的智慧。

The Secret Methodology of Brain Development
.
Scientific research has shown that the human brain possesses extremely high intelligence, of which most people only utilize 10%. The remaining 90% has been left undeveloped. In other words, every one of us is a genius with unique talents and possesses the ability to unleash greater energy.
.
In July 2006, American scientists Dr. Richard Davidson, Dr. Antoine Lutz and Dr. Al Shapere conducted an experiment with two groups of people. One group comprised of 8 Tibetan high priests (known as Lamas) with 15 to 40 years of meditation experience. The second group comprised of 10 students who have not had any experience with meditation, but who had been trained on the basics of contemplation one week before the experiment.
.
Results of the experiment:
The experiment’s objective was to find out the difference in the strength of the brain gamma waves between the “lama group” and the control “student group”. Results showed that the lama group, on average, had gamma waves frequencies that were 8 times stronger than that of the control student group! The lama who had meditated for the longest period of time had the best performance – his gamma waves frequency were 13 times stronger than that of the control student group!
.
The results affirmed that the effects of meditation extend beyond the relaxation of the mind. In fact, meditation is known to have direct impact on the activity of our neural brain waves. Continuous meditation helps in the integration of the mind and body, and helps to accumulate positive energy. When the body is free of blockages, the mind and the brain are unblocked as well. This will naturally give rise to a more comprehensive faculty of understanding, and a more complete wisdom.

走出黑暗幽谷,重見美麗藍天~
.
人生的路上,我們需要不斷摸索和學習,就像一隻野兔在叢林中奔跑,跌跌撞撞,當你不小心掉入深谷了,你覺得生命沒有了希望、沒有了朋友、一切無法再面對了,此時的你,該如何跨越、重拾信心,奔向遼闊的草原?
.
一起來看看馬來西亞_楊繼群的分享吧,看他是如何從可怕的幽谷,找到一線曙光、走出黑暗,看見廣闊而湛藍的天空?
.
也許,只需要你一個小小的勇氣,生命從此就會不同。
也期待你的健康、你的改變,你的分享與見證。

Walk out of the dark secluded valley and regain sight of the beautiful blue sky ~
.
The path of life is often filled with endless exploration and learning. Like a hare running in the jungle, we often stumble and fall. When you accidentally fall into a deep valley, you might feel that you have lost friends, and all hope in life. You will find it hard to face life. At times like that, how do you regain confidence to leap over the obstacles and run towards the vast grassland?
.
Let us listen to the sharing of Jiqun Yang from Malaysia – a story of how he found a ray of light in the scary, secluded valley and walked out of darkness to regain sight of the vast blue sky.
.
Perhaps, with a little bit of courage, you will be able to transform your life.
I look forward to hear you share about your transformation on how you regain your health.

給幸福留個位置吧!!
.
有人說:「
因為忙,就不覺得累?!
因為忙,所以沒有時間生病?!」
.
當我們將夢想一件一件地完成了,
「健康」卻也悄悄地溜走了…
因為生活的瑣碎和忙碌, 漸漸沒了它的位置,也忘了它的重要!
.
朋友啊,別忘了…
人生是精彩的,生活是忙碌的!
財米油鹽追逐的日子,煩惱是永無止盡的!
請放慢自己的腳步,給幸福留個位置吧!!
.
.
Save a place for happiness!!
.
Some people said:”
There’s no time to feel tired due to the hectic schedule?!
There’s no time to fall sick due to the busy lifestyle?!”
.
As you accomplish your goals and dreams one after another, “Health” is also quietly slipping away. Due to the hectic lifestyle handling the trivial things in life, health has gradually been neglected and has lost its importance.
.
My dear friends, please don’t forget…
Life is wonderful, yet busy!
The troubles you may encounter, in the days of pursuing a living may be endless!
Please slow down your pace and save a place for happiness!
.
===================================================
From the Video:
What is happiness?
.
This man’s smile is filled with happiness.
.
He is Wen Jin Chuan and he is an excavator driver. He is the sole support of his family with his monthly salary of $3000. His biggest worry as he grew older was the state of his health.
.
Chuan:
At that time, I had difficulties squatting, and I also had trouble climbing steps. I even fell down a couple of times. I was only fifty years old then and I feared how it would be when I am sixty? Would I become totally immobile and confined to the bed?
.
For the past five years, Chuan has tried all possible ways for his legs to get better, but the situation only got worse. He knew very well that if this continued, eventually, he would lose his job and his family would lose their only source of income. That was when he came across Energy Bagua.
.
Chuan:
About six months ago, my brother-in-law invited me to the meditation center. He drove me to the Cheras Meditation Center to take a look. That was the first time I came across Energy Bagua. I remember that was a Sunday morning. I sat on the swing and watched the people walking around a tree. They would change their hands every eight rounds. I wondered what benefit that would bring. Three days later, I asked one of the lady who was there: Will this help me? Walking round and round the tree? To which the lady replied “Yes of course. Do you want to try?”
.
Ning Hang:
The very next day he started the Energy Bagua practice with us. His legs hurt a lot in the beginning. I told him that he has to persevere so as to reap the benefits. About a month after he started practicing with us, he told me that he has not taken his usual injection that help to control the pain in his legs. Normally he had to take the injection every month. I encouraged him to continue with the practice. It has been five months since then and he has not had to take a single injection. Last month he shared with me that he was able to carry a pail of water in each hand and climb the stairs from the first to the fifth floor. His legs did not hurt at all.
.
Chuan:
About three months after I started practicing, I went for my regular health check up. When I stepped onto the weighing machine, I could not believe my eyes. My weight has gone from 105kg down to 91kg! I was so happy. Not only have I benefited from a full recovery of my legs, I have also benefited by losing so much weight!
.
Grateful for the benefits that he has reaped within such a short period of time, Chuan decided to give back to the Bagua community.
.
Ning Hang:
Due to the rain these past few days, the ground at where we practice has become very muddy. Chuan woke up really early in the morning and brought sand over to lay the ground for us. All our Bagua mates were really grateful to Chuan as without him, it would have been difficult to practice Bagua.
.
Once, his sister came to visit with her family.
Chuan:
I feel so happy and lucky. My change has brought about happiness in my family. We chat and laugh together a lot now. Previously I could not move and could only lie in bed. Not only was my income reduced, my family had to help me with the simplest of things. My temper was bad then and we quarreled a lot. Now, I am able to help them with chores whenever they are not free.
.
Chuan also recounted the time that his daughter paid him a surprise visit. She even brought a small gift for him. It was a pair of reading glasses which was exactly what he needed. With his new pair of glasses, Chuan can now read all the words in the newspapers clearly.

What is happiness? To me, this is happiness.

【善用萬物_提升自我】 . 在西方神話中…

【善用萬物_提升自我】
.
在西方神話中有一種神鳥叫「鳳凰」,雄為鳳、雌為凰,又被稱為火鳥、或不死鳥。傳說天方國的鳳凰,每500年就會集香木自焚為灰燼,再從灰燼中浴火重生。而鳳凰每一次的重生,就能獲得比以往更強大的生命力,如此周而復始,直至「鳳凰涅槃」,獲得永生。
.
而我們經過禪修之後,觀察能力、視覺能力、以至於各種能力,從寬度、深度、廣度。在境界上也會有很大差別,我們從一個凡人的基礎上,修到了視覺能力,和精神境界都超越過去,甚至超越了凡人,自然我們的能量就會比過去增強;而我們的思維方式、智慧也將比過去強上很多。
.
當深入修行到一個程度的時候,我們也有機會,生出許多超越原本能力的超能力,可以跨越時間、空間去看我們自己、看這個世界,去順應於這個世界、甚至是利用這個世界,讓自己飛升起來,這叫什麼呢?——「善用萬物而入鳳凰涅槃」,通俗地講就是「烏鴉變鳳凰」,提升我們的肉體與精神境界。
.
本周的共修,我們就來聊聊如何通過「禪修」,來提升我們的心靈視覺,讓我們的人生達到更高的境界?大家可以留言分享你的感想和經驗、或分享這篇《心靈的視覺》給其他需要幫助的有緣人。
.
祝福朋友們的人生更燦爛、更吉祥!

Make the best of everything to elevate oneself.

In Western mythology there is a kind of sacred bird called “phoenix” which is also known as firebird or long-lived bird. According to legend, the phoenix cyclically regenerates or born again after every 500 years through gathering incense wood and burning itself to ashes. With every rebirth, the phoenix gains stronger life force and this keeps repeating until it eventually attains Nirvana and gains an eternal life.

Through meditation, our observation and visual skills improve. Thus we have better ability and able to view broader and deeper. Our spiritual realm also transcend to a level higher than that of a normal human being. So naturally our energy will be stronger than in the past and so will be our thinking ability and wisdom.

When our practice has reached a certain depth, we will find ourselves gaining new ability beyond our original ability. We may even have the ability to look at the world and ourselves beyond time and space. We may be able to adapt to the world by using what the world has to offer. We refer to this as – “making the best of everything to attain phoenix’s state of Nirvana” or simply, “transforming a crow into a phoenix” to explain the elevation of our physical and mental state of mind.

In this week’s global group practice, let us discuss how we can elevate our spiritual mind through meditation. I welcome all to share your thoughts, experiences and your spiritual transformations in the path of your self-cultivation!

May all enjoy a fulfilling, happy and auspicious life!

成功的人和你想的不一樣!! . . 所謂…

成功的人和你想的不一樣!!
.
.
所謂:「剎那發心 剎那覺悟 剎那成就~」
也就是說,你有多大發心,就能夠有多大成就!
.
也許,所有成功者的過程都是不一樣的,
但他們都擁有一個共同的特質,那就是…
他們敢想、敢做,並且有堅定的「信心」和「堅持」。
剎那間的發心,也決定他此生成功的果實。
.
那麼我們該如何去執行呢,或你也想要快速成就自己嗎?
歡迎大家和我一起來聊聊,如何「即身成就」….
.
.
Successful people are not as what you think!
.
As the saying goes: “The instant that the bodhicitta arises, enlightenment will be achieved; you will be accomplished in that instant.”
.
In other words, the greater your bodhicitta, the bigger will be your accomplishment!
.
Perhaps every successful person has a different path to success, but they do have some things in common: they have the courage to dream, to work on their dream, and they have unwavering confidence and perseverance.
.
The aspiration of an instant decides what fruits of success a person will enjoy in his or her lifetime.
.
So what should we do? Do you want to quickly achieve enlightenment?
Let us have a chat about how we can achieve enlightenment in this lifetime…
