老師在《地藏菩薩本願經》誦畢之後的簡短教授中,開宗明義地說道:「幽闇在哪兒?在心中!當心中幽闇,外境即使歡樂明亮,仍如同置身暗室,舉步維艱。如果心中幽闇被照亮了,就算外境風雨起伏,我們也依然擁有力量面對外在挑戰,得以堅定前行。」

 

The Teacher,Susan Duan, said in brief after the completion of chanting the “Sutra of the Original Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva”---"Where is the darkness? In the heart! When the heart is in the gloomy swamp, even if the external environment is happy and bright, you will still feel like struggling in the dark and can’t move even a step. Instead, if the darkness in the heart is illuminated, even if the surroundings are ups and downs, we will still have the strength to face the external challenges and be able to move forward steadily. "

老師接著引導大家思考回答,「那麼,要用甚麼來照亮幽闇呢?」有人說智慧,有人說佛的光,有人說慈悲...。老師說:「都對,這些都是佛性、法性的一種展現」,並說明在方才誦經、持聖號後,老師帶領我們靜坐禪修,體會地藏菩薩的光投射到我們心中,這本身正是一種在潛意識狀態中,讓自心被照亮、喚醒我們本具的智慧佛性的一種實修過程,確實大家在這樣的禪修狀態中,有人說覺得很安詳、被眷顧,有人說很平靜舒服,有人甚至在其中聽到了解決內在困惑的智慧指引。

 

The Teacher then led everyone to think and answer, “Then, what should we use to illuminate the darkness?” Someone said wisdom, someone said the light of the Buddha, someone said compassion...The Teacher said, all of the above are right, they are the manifestations of the Buddha nature and the Dharma nature. And then the Teacher explained that after chanting the Sutra and holding the holy name of the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, she led us to meditate and experience the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s light projecting into our heart, it was a kind of practice process which was in the subconscious state to make our heart be illuminated and awake the wise Buddha nature which we have already had. And indeed, in such state of meditation, some people said they felt serene and being blessed, some said they felt calm and comfortable, and there were even some hearing the wise guidance of solving their inner confusion.

就在老師的教導下,我們更明白如何透過這樣的誦經、禪修,來改善、提升我們的能量頻率,開啟自己的內在智慧,當下與會者都滿心歡喜,充滿感恩,能在今天的殊勝法會,利益了自己,迴向了身旁親友及有緣眾生。

 

It was under the guiding and teaching of the Teacher that we understood more clearly how to improve and enhance our energy frequency and open our inner wisdom through such Sutra chanting and meditation. The attendants were all full of joy and gratitude that they could benefit themselves and dedicate the merits to their friends, relatives and sentient beings in the solemn Dharma Assembly.
