菩提

一般人的煩惱痛苦與牽纏掛礙,而不得自在,乃是由無知開始。因為無知、迷惑,所以發動了身、口、意三業造作。使得心靈、行為都不清淨。如《八大人覺經》云:「當知身心皆為幻垢,幻相永滅,十分清淨」。

們常常弄不清楚,煩惱究竟從外在還是內在之因素影響,往往不知道根源在哪裏。而且,我們又缺乏了什麼去把煩惱徹徹底底去除。常言道︰「天下本無事,庸人自 擾之」。我們常在煩惱中纏繞,因此,凡本來清淨的心性中,妄起無明,流轉生死,長受怖畏和苦惱,而不得自在。若能破除「我見」,清除煩惱習氣,又有什麼可 怖畏驚恐的呢?

我們常常讀誦《心經》,對《心經》背誦流利。但是,我們知道心經的義理有多少?《心經》裏面說:「依般若波羅蜜多故,心無罣礙,無罣礙故,無有恐怖,遠離顛倒夢想,究竟涅槃。」

「般若」就是妙智慧的意思,有了智慧就能認清事實的真相,才不會做出糊塗事,不會迷真逐妄。所以六祖大師說:「菩提自性,本來清淨,但用此心,直了成佛。」

How to overcome your difficulties

Our worries are of our own making. We create them in own minds, through our inability or failure to understand the danger of our egoistic feelings and our inflated and false values of things. If only we could see things in their proper perspective in that nothing is permanent in this world and that our egoistic self is our wild imagination running riot in our untrained mind, we should be going a long way to finding the remedy to eradicate our worries and miseries. We must cultivate our minds and hearts to forget about self and to be of services and use to humanity. This is one of the means whereby we can find real peace and happiness.
