無私不求回報,全心為我福祉的一份機緣

無私不求回報
 

翻譯自: The One Thing That Does Not Betray And Is A True Advocate For My Happiness (附英語原文)
 

2016年已完結,我不禁回憶著這一年的遭遇。儘管每年如常帶來無數回憶,2016年對我來說卻是特別艱苦,所以我衷心希望自己在痛楚過後,能在這些經驗中學習成長。
 

這一年讓我體驗到任何人,無論是親人、朋友、還是擦身相遇的醫生或餐廳侍應,甚至是自己,都能在有意無意間讓我失望、受騙、受傷。
 

以怨報德、恩將仇報;付出被忽視剝削,仁慈被恣意利用。群眾離棄、女權低落、種族歧視、政治鬥爭,無日無之。另一方面,我非但沒有好好對待自己,反而常常胡思亂想、用憤怒、用壓力戕害心中的我,寧願走捷徑也不願為自己提供最好的待遇。連對待自己也如此,這世上又有甚麼值得信賴?
 

我找到了答案,就是——佛陀如來正法。
 

這段時期,自己忽略了H.H. 第三世多杰羌佛的教導,整個人都在倒退中,沒有按照佛陀的教化,荒怠修行,每天的時間和精力都全給世間學習、工作、社交等俗世瑣事佔據,浪費著光陰卻不以為忤。今天驀然回首,驚覺自己身心都變得那麼醜陋低俗。
 

我讓自卑侵蝕內心,用冷酷蒙蔽善念;滿以為這樣可以回復自我,結果幸福逐漸轉化為惡果。這就是無明,這就是沒有奉行H.H. 第三世多杰羌佛正法的結果。我慚愧自稱為佛陀的弟子,卻無視真正的道理,這種愚癡落得迷失和懊悔。
 

從佛陀如來正法中,我學習到佛法是真正可以讓我達到幸福圓滿。愛與信任得到忠誠和更多的愛,精進修行可獲得受益、幸福、平靜和充實的心靈。如來正法沒有性別之分,這也是我理解世上唯一宗教真正達至完全男女平等,修行及目標並不會因性別而異。面對世間上為求生存而出現的自私自利法則,如來正法清楚指出這些自私法則毫無意義,並不會帶來真正的幸福,反而帶來充滿憤恨和苦難的寂寞境況。如來正法提供途徑,指引如何達到真正永恆的幸福快樂——一切以眾生為首位,我便能找到福祉;明白無常及學懂放下,我便能找到福祉;精進修行,我便能找到福祉!
 

特別是這一年,我曾經對佛法的教導生起疑問,但這些疑問最終也讓我更深入體會,如來正法是最合理,也最具邏輯。這些真正的道理並不容易立刻為人接受,因為佛法就如一面鏡子,毫不偏倚地照出我的缺失。我知道佛法真實無疑,我更通過反覆求證從中得到成長和體會。我感受到盲從道理和指導並沒有實質受用,只有真正了解佛法和佛理,才能把理論落實在日常生活,取得精進學習和修行的成效。
 

我希望我能精進不懈學習佛陀及菩薩的教導,報答祂們的信任與慈悲,不要再成為一個臨急才想起尋找佛法的人。
 

我希望能遇上如來正法的人不要像我從前枉過著,並且要大力弘揚佛法——要知道能夠有緣找到無私地不求回報,全心以我們福祉為本的如來正法,是多麼難得的一份機緣!

英語原文: The One Thing That Does Not Betray And Is A True Advocate For My Happiness
 

 
With the passing of 2016, I can’t help myself but reflect on the year and its happenings. As with every year, there have been many memorable moments; 2016 has been a particularly difficult year for me and I hope that I can turn these experiences into valuable life lessons, rather than having only gained suffering from them.
 

The year has taught me that, anyone and everyone – whether it is family or friends, can cause disappointment, betrayal and hurt. This may be intentional or unintentional. Actually, it is not just limited to family and friends; this expands to anyone that I had come into contact with, whether it is doctors or the waiter at the restaurant, and even myself.
 

My sincere trust and love maybe reciprocated with betrayal and hate; my diligence and efforts maybe recompensed with indifference and exploitation; my kindness maybe repaid with manipulation. Society is also not on our side; with women’s rights still constantly being ignored, racism on the rise, political wars, and the list goes on.  Even within ourselves, we might think that we are doing our best to benefit ourselves, however we are the culprits who overthink, hold a grudge, stress and burn ourselves up inside – neglecting what is good for us, ignoring the best solutions because they are not always the easy solutions. In a world, where sometimes we cannot even trust ourselves, what can we trust?
 

To this, my answer is the true Buddha Dharma.
 

I have to admit I have recently neglected the teachings of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. I have found myself to be on the slippery slope of degeneration. I have acted without reflecting on the teachings of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, I have disregarded my practice, and diverted my time and efforts to everyday matters such as studying, working and socialising – letting the days go by, thinking that it isn’t doing any harm whatsoever. Today I reflect and realise what an ugly human I have become – both externally and internally. I let menial issues become so personal, that it eats me up inside; my compassionate nature has shrunken to a level whereby I can be cold and ruthless; my happiness has faded to somewhat bitterness, and the hope that I can be content like I was before. This is the result of non-cultivation and not following the truth expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. It is shameful to call myself a disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III; the ignorance of knowing the truth, yet ignoring it has certainly resulted in nothing but regret and loss.
 

What I have learnt is that the true Buddha Dharma is the one and only thing in this world that is truly advocating for my happiness and benefit. My trust and love is rewarded with loyalty and even more love; my diligence and efforts are paid back with evident self-improvement, happiness, peace of mind and a contented heart. The true Buddha Dharma does not incite gender inequality; actually it is the only religion I know of, whereby females and males are treated as equals – practices and expectations do not differ based on gender. In a world where selfish behaviour has become a key strategy for survival, the true Buddha Dharma has shown that this method of survival is meaningless, as at the end of that road is not happiness, but a lonely place filled with resentment and suffering. The true Buddha Dharma provides the means and guidance to show that eternal happiness can be achieved. When I actually, and truly put others first I find happiness. When I learn that letting go and impermanence comes hand in hand, I find happiness. With wholehearted diligence in the Buddha Dharma, I will find happiness.
 

This year in particular, I have questioned and doubted the teachings of the true Buddha Dharma. However, with every question and doubt, I always come to the same conclusion – that the true Buddha Dharma makes sense and is logical – this truth may not always be easy to accept, as the true Buddha Dharma is like a mirror, reflecting our flaws without holding back. I’ve been told that I should not question or doubt the true Buddha Dharma, however, I feel that this is an important aspect in my growth and understanding of it. Blindly following teachings or principles that I do not understand the reasoning behind seems pointless. If I understand the benefits of the teachings and principles, then surely I will put even more effort into cultivation and practice.
 

I hope that I can reciprocate the Buddha’s and Bodhissatva’s trust and love with diligence in their teachings, and not become someone that only seeks it only when I need it.
 

I hope that those who have discovered the true Buddha Dharma will not overlook it like I did, and share it with as many people as we can – how rare it is to find something that is only advocating for our benefit and happiness, and asks for nothing more than our efforts, which ultimately bring benefit and happiness to our life.
 

(The above is purely personal understanding for reference only, all greatness and inconceivable virtue should be in accordance with the dharma discourses of the Buddha Master. Amitabha.)
