I LEARNT BUDDHISM IN FOOTBALL 我在足球中體會佛法

I like football. It is because while I am playing football, I feel Buddhism in a match. What can you think of Buddhism in relation to football ? Is it about losing? Or is it about winning? What about a draw game in connection to Buddhism?
 

I know that a football match is about scores but there are many important things about a match than scores.
 

A team can make 3 substitutions in a normal match. I remember I saw a match in the Premier League between Manchester United and AFC Bournemouth. At the 40th minute, an AFC defender passed back to its goalkeeper when Man. Utd. midfielder was trying to shoot. But the goalkeeper deflected (saved) the ball. The midfielder intercepted the ball again and scored in the next shot. He scored Man. Utd. 1-0 to AFC.
 

After Man. Utd. scored, the AFC defender got angry and kept telling his teammates off releasing some bad thoughts. That affected the spirits of the other teammates resulting in the manager substituting some of his teammate when AFC  lost 3-0. After the substitution AFC turned around and won one point to make it 3-1. If that sadness still continued with the AFC defenders and they did not change their mindset, AFC Bournemouth might lose more points (maybe even 6-0). This reminds me in Buddhism. You have to change your mind into good thoughts if you have evil thoughts inside your brain, because this will only generate more evil thoughts or even evil deeds. If you have already got bad thoughts in your mind, then quickly think of good ones. This “substitution” will change your Karma. With Buddhism in mind, if you are losing 1-0, you should not blame other players because they let in one goal.  Instead  you should wish they can do even better next time. Also you can inform the goalkeeper to save better next time. By saying that, this can increase the team spirit. You can prevent your team from losing more points. Sometimes, there is even a good turning of winning.
 

If you have extra time after reading this article, check the European Championships 2016 Finals (Portugal vs France) and share with me your feelings about the match.
 

More importantly, I highly recommend “THE DHARMA OF CULTIVATION TRANSMITTED” by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III for true Buddhism. With true Buddhism, you will have more feeling while watching a match, and even benefit a lot in your life.

我在足球中體會佛法
 

我喜愛足球,因為我在球賽中體會到佛法。你覺得箇中有甚麼關係?關於勝?關於敗?還是和局令你聯想到佛理?
我知道一場足球比賽通常和分數有關,但其實有比分數更重要的事。
 

一般賽事中每隊有3個替換球員的機會。這令我想起一場英超聯般尼茅夫對曼聯的賽事。當時賽事進行到40分鐘,般隊後衛在守門員撲球後,竟把球回傳守門員,讓在旁進攻的曼聯中場球員攔截到,並再次起腳而成功入球,曼聯以1:0領先。
曼聯領先後,該名般隊後衛變得暴躁,不停惡意針對隊友,大大影響各人的表現。當般隊被攻陷至3:0,領隊一併替換了幾名隊員,把球隊形勢扭轉並射入一球成為3:1局面。
 

可見當時若再讓該後衛引發的負面情緒蔓延,般隊大有可能出現6:0的劣境。
 

這裡讓我想起了佛法。若心中存有惡念而不知轉化為善念,只會繼續引發更多惡念,甚至得到惡果。所以當察覺到惡念存在,當下立即發願起善念。這個「替換」的願力往往能改變你的業報。
 

套用以善念息惡念的佛理,當球隊輸了一球,你不會責備失職的球員,反而會祝福他接下來有更好表現,更鼓勵守門員接牢下一球。這樣球隊便可穩住形勢,甚至轉敗為勝。
 

如果讀完這篇文章令你興味盎然,不妨在閒暇重溫2016歐洲國家盃總決賽葡萄牙對法國一戰,與我分享心得。
 

更重要一點,我誠意推薦《H.H. 第三世多杰羌佛傳的修行法--什麼叫修行》學習真正佛法。把持正知正見的佛法,不但看球賽會得到更多體會,對人生更有莫大裨益呢!
