與印度教徒的對談 ~⚇

Buddha's Teaching and Hinduism

 

    第一日 ☼    要按照事實看問題

According to the Facts


    可敬的 Swami,
    Venerable Swami,

    1.

    種姓制度,既然在印度教產生,所以,問題在印度教,而不在佛教或其他宗教。
    不過,佛教或其他宗教,卻是種姓制度的受害者!
    The caste system, since, resulting in Hinduism,so, the question is in Hinduism.
    Not Buddhism, nor other religious issues.
    Other religions, but the victims of the caste system!

    種姓制度,既然由《吠陀經》提出,應該檢討的是:「吠陀思想是否有所偏差?」(所以,不要偏離話題!)
    The caste system, since the produce in the Vedas,
    Should review the Vedic thought, if there are deviations?
    And, should not deviate from the topic!

    即使,佛陀在現代,也不會認同種姓制度的!
    所以,不能說印度教與佛教的教導一致,不只是「名稱」和「說法」的不同而已,這是根本的不同!
    Even if the Buddha in modern times, nor endorsed caste!
    So we can not say: "The same Hindu and Buddhist teachings."
    Not just: "some words, names" it is fundamentally different!


    2.

    佛陀教導:
    「要按照事實看問題!」
    並不是像《吠檀多》的唯心論,也不能把責任都推給梵天或上帝。
    The Buddha taught:
    "In accordance with the facts, look at the issue!"
    Not like the Vedanta idealism; can not, the responsibility, are pushed to Brahma or God!

    佛陀教導裡:
    「不論心和物和人,乃至梵天或上帝,都不是絕對的!」
    萬事萬物,沒有一樣能離開因緣果報。
    The Buddha taught:
    "Regardless, the heart, things, and people, as well as Brahma, or God, Not absolutely timeless!"
    All things, none of them can leave, karma retribution.

    「全都不能離開因果、四諦。」
    這才是絕對的!
    "All, you can not leave the cause and effect, the Four Noble Truths."
    This is absolute only!

    要從輪迴解脫,只有涅槃一條路;
    但,涅槃絕非幻想或是空想,或是,空性或梵天,或是上帝的恩寵!
    Liberation from samsara, only, Nirvana one road;
    However, Nirvana, not fantasy, desiring, nor, sunyata, Brahma, God's grace!

    只有,自身去除:
    貪愛、瞋恨、愚癡,實踐「八正道」之後;
    唯有這樣,才有可能圓滿「涅槃」!
    Only, their removal:
    Craving, hatred, ignorance, after practice "the Noble Eightfold Path";
    Only in this way will it be possible perfection, "Nirvana"!

    這才是諸佛的教導,完全不是《吠檀多》神性論的說法。
    不只是名稱或說法的不同而已!
    This is the teaching of the Buddhas, absolutely not, Vedanta divinity on the statement.
    Not just names, nor words different, nothing!

    願你平安,諸佛的祝福,永遠跟隨著你!
    May you are everything get well, Buddhas blessings be always with you.

    第二日 ☼    實踐佛陀的平等精神

Practice the Buddha's Spirit of Equality


    可敬的 Swami,
    Venerable Swami,

    既然追求真理,就應該實踐佛陀的平等精神;而非把佛陀當作守護神一樣從崇拜。
    (把佛陀當我們的門神,或財神爺,我們就失去了對佛陀的信仰!)
    Since the pursuit of truth, we should practice the Buddha's spirit of equality; rather as the patron saint of the Buddha from worship.
    (The Buddha when our keeper, or the God of Wealth, we lose faith in the Buddha!)

    種姓制度好嗎?
    美國總統歐巴馬,是黑白混血兒,按照印度教算是賤民,怎麼可能當到美國總統?
    The caste system right?
    US President Barack Obama is mulatto, according to Hindu Dalits, how could the United States when the President?

    美國能,為何印度不能?為何一定要有種姓制度?沒有種姓的美國更加強大,不是嗎?
    The United States can, why can not India? Why must have a caste system? No caste US more powerful, is not it?

    你也許說:「每個國家的文化不同,這裡是印度,是嗎?」
    You might say: "Culture is different in each country, here in India, is not it?"

    美國雖然不是印度教,或佛教國家;可是,他們卻實踐佛陀的平等精神,所以,他們強大!
    Although the United States is not a Hindu, or a Buddhist country; however, they practice the Buddha's spirit of equality, so they strong!

    由此可見,宗教只是外衣,重點是你是否真正的去實踐!
    Thus, religion is the cloak, the focus is whether you really go practice!

    不多寫了,這些話題,只是與你討論法義,希望勿生氣!
    Not much to write, these topics, but to discuss the Dhamma with you, I hope not to get angry!

    也希望,你能有好的禪修體驗!
    I hope that you can have a good meditation experience!

    第三日 ☼    每個緣起都是平等的

Each Origin are Equal


    可敬的 Swami,
    Venerable Swami,

    不只是美國,印度或其他國家也一樣,只要奉行佛陀的平等精神,這個國家就會強大!
    (每個國家都會有優缺點,應避免缺點,多效法其他國家的優點。)
    Not just the United States, India or other countries, as long as adhere to the spirit of equality Buddha, the country will be strong!
    (Each country will have advantages and disadvantages, should avoid the shortcomings, learn the advantages of other countries.)

    佛陀的四聖諦、八正道就是在講:「平等精神!」
    Buddha's Four Noble Truths, Eightfold Path is to say: "the spirit of equality!"

    所謂「佛陀」(Sam-buddha),也就是「平等的覺悟」的意思。
    The so-called "Buddha" (Sam-buddha), meaning is "equality of consciousness."

    平等精神在講:「每個緣起都是平等的,不論是佛陀的緣起,還是乞丐的緣起!」
    In talking about the spirit of equality:
    "Each origin of birth and death are equal, regardless of the origin of the Buddha, or the origin of a beggar!"

    所以,只要實踐平等精神,符合法的緣起,每個人都可證悟成佛。
    在這裡,並沒有佛陀或乞丐,貴族或賤民的不同!
    So, as long as the practice the spirit of equality, in line with the origin of law, everyone can become a Buddha enlightenment.
    Here is no different from Buddha or beggars, nobles or untouchables!

    那些想要傷害或殺害你,造謠或中傷你的人,就是缺乏平等精神!
    因為,他們沒有反過來想,如果是他們自己怎麼能受得了?
    Those who want to hurt or kill you, rumors or slander you, is the lack of the spirit of equality!
    Because they did not turn to care for others, and if so how can you stand yourself?

    任何人都一樣,如果失去了平等精神,等於失去了做人資格!
    Like anyone, if they lose the spirit of equality, it means the loss of eligibility man!

    盼望你,即使在最艱困的環境下,千萬別放棄禪修。
    只要繼續保持禪修,相信天神與護法,必定會保佑你渡過難關的!
    I hope you, even in the most difficult environment, do not give up meditation.
    Just keep meditating believe god and patron saint, will bless you through it!

    願你,一切吉祥、安樂。
    I wish you all good luck, happiness.

    第四日 ☼    閱讀佛經的好處

The Advantage of Reading Sutras


    可敬的 Swami,
    Venerable Swami,

    修行很重要,但是正確的見解更重要。
    這就是閱讀佛經的好處!
    Practice is important, but the correct view is more important.
    This is the advantage of reading sutras!

    佛經上面說:
    Sutra says:

    世間有兩種人……
    有一種人,快樂的在修禪;另一種人,痛苦的也在修禪。
    There are two kinds of people the world ...
    There is a man, happy in meditation; another man, also suffering meditation.

    世間又有兩種人……
    有一種人,智慧的在修禪;另一種人,愚癡的也在修禪。
    World there are two kinds of people ...
    There is a person of wisdom in meditation; another person, ignorance is also meditation.

    我想……
    這麼好,這麼重要的佛經,
    為何沒人閱讀,沒人翻譯,沒人重視呢?
    (二千五百個 “Vassa: 雨季安居” 過去了,佛陀的正法是否無恙?)
    I think...
    So good, so important in the Buddhist scriptures,
    Why nobody read, nobody translation, nobody seriously?
    (Two thousand five hundred "Vassa: Rains Retreat" later, the Buddha Dhamma whether unharmed?)

    祝福 吉祥如意!
    Bless good luck!

    第五日 ☼    如何學習佛陀的教導?

Simple to Learn Buddha's Taught


    可敬的 Swami,
    Venerable Swami,

    請不用,把“佛陀的教導”想的太複雜!
    Please do not think of the Buddha's teachings are too complicated!

    佛法,不在於「理論」有多麼高深,而在於是否能夠「實踐」,以及是否真正能夠最終獲得「幸福」?
    Dharma is not how advanced the theory, but rather whether to practice, and really can finally be happy?

    世間人,大多數是愚痴的,卻把佛法想的太高深;他們想要追逐快樂,最終不得幸福。
    Most of the world people are stupid, yet the Dharma think too deep; they want to pursue happiness, and ultimately not be happy.

    只有,少數追隨佛陀的聖賢、智者,簡單的學習佛陀教導;受盡世人嘲笑,吃盡各種苦頭,最終得到幸福。
    Only a few sages wise to follow the Buddha, the Buddha taught simple to learn; people suffered ridicule, suffered all kinds of hardship, and ultimately be happy.

    你既然稱佛陀為“主”,更應學習“佛陀的教導”!
    Since you said the Buddha as "Lord", but should learn the teachings of the Buddha!

    有關“佛陀的教導”,完整記錄在《巴利佛典》裡,祂會告訴你:
    「什麼是正見?」
    About the Buddha's teachings, fully documented in "Pali Buddhist Scriptures", they will tell you -
    What is the right view?

    祝福 吉祥如意!
    Bless good luck!

    第六日 ☼    佛教徒沒有自以為是的空間

There is no Room for Self-righteousness


    可敬的 Swami,
    Venerable Swami,

    如果,沒有達到超越的狀態,就不能說:
    「幸福和悲傷是一樣的,或者,真理和邪說也是一樣的?」
    If you do not reach beyond the state, you can not say:
    Happiness and sadness are the same, or, truth and heresy is the same?

    如果,解釋成:
    「一切都是大梵天神,所變化出來的幻象。」那就錯的離譜了!
    每個人的錯誤言行,不能把責任都推給大梵天神。
    If interpreted as:
    Everything is Brahman the gods out of the illusion of change, it would be wrong of outrageous!
    Everyone's erroneous words and deeds, can not place the blame for Brahman god.

    不錯,一切都是無常的;但不能因此就真假不分:
    「誤聽,或者誤傳,或者自以為是的發明佛陀所悟的真理。」
    Yes, everything is impermanent; But not so on the true and false, regardless -
    Mistook, or misinformation, or self-righteous invention Buddha enlightenment truth.

    所謂「捨自諦」是:捨棄自己發明、自以為是的真理。
    The so-called "Paṇunna-pacceka-sacca" is - to abandon their own invention, self-righteous truth.

    所謂,有「四依」是:⓵ 熟思而追隨一法(受持善法),⓶ 熟思而認同一法(肯定善法),⓷ 熟思而避免一法(否定惡法),⓸ 熟思而排除一法(捨棄惡法)。
    So-called "Catura-āpassena" is - ⓵ deliberation and follow a act (accept and uphold good deeds), ⓶ deliberation and approval a act (certainly good deeds), ⓷ deliberation to avoid a act (negative bad deeds), ⓸ deliberation and exclusion a act (discard bad deeds).

    這些,在巴利佛典裡的「十聖居」(十個聖者的住處)都有詳細說明。
    These Buddhist scriptures in Pali in the "Dasa ariyavāsā - ten holy dwelling" has a detailed explanation.

    所以「佛教」,是講理性的宗教;在「佛法」裡,完全沒有自以為是的空間。
    So Buddhism is about rational religion; in Buddhism where there is no room for self-righteousness.

    祝福 吉祥如意!
    Bless good luck!
