【證嚴上人開示】學佛一定要相信因緣果報,我們知因識果,無因不成果、無緣不會報,我們大家應該要相信,在我們日常生活中,都不離因緣果報,大家即使是日常生活也不離開,來這裡修行,道場的規矩,每天早上都要早起禮佛精進,禮佛之後,時間到了,禮佛完畢,在這裡坐就是因為聽經,師父要跟我們佛法分享,所以我們在這裡坐著,禮佛之後,結果在這裡坐,在這裡坐,也因為要聽經。
所以因果、果因,有在這裡坐的因緣,所以才有能夠聽經的結果,這就是每天的生活中,我們若下殿時,做什麼呢?趕快要早餐了,為什麼要早餐,因為一天的生活,過去的一天,又很早起來,又是今天的一天,所以我們一定要體力有營養,為了要取營養,所以我們每天早上要用餐,就是因為肚子餓,所以我們要用餐。
用餐過後,結果呢?飽了,是結果飽了,吃飽之後,我們有體力了,一天的工作又開始,午餐又到了,為什麼呢?因為該用的體力也用光了,每天的三餐,都是因緣果報、因緣果報,還是在日常生活中工作上,需要的取著,沒有一樣不是在因緣果報中。
真的是這麼簡單而已嗎?,只是在每天的生活而已,當然不是,每天的生活,就是容易去造了因,結了人緣,成了未來的果,那種的感受,所以若要說在生活,每天都在因果輪迴,若是要說生生世世,也是一樣在因緣果報中輪迴。
無因當然就不成果,你若沒和人結惡緣,這個緣不會合,就沒有什麼果,沒有什麼報,所以應該我們要很用心去體會,這是一個學問。
日常生活不離因緣果報
無因不成果 無緣不會報
學佛者要用心體會
才能自我警覺

看到一則國際的新聞,有一位十二歲的女孩,遇到三位歹徒,從這個女孩子從學校要回家時,就把她抓走了,抓走了,在一個房子裡,就是要對她逼婚,希望她能將就他,和他結婚,這個女孩子就是不肯答應,所以非常的掙扎,在那裡被他們很折磨。
聽到這個女孩子被人抓走時,趕快就有人報警了,外面警察開始在追蹤了,他們知道已經,警察開始發現在追蹤,覺得在人群中不妥當,就再把這個女孩子抓到深山裡,衣索匹亞的土地很大,離都市不遠就有一處叢林,深山中,大家都很累了,就把這個女孩子丟下來,放在土地上,大家休息一下。
但是剛剛把這個女孩子丟下來時,其中一個似乎聽到後面,好像有人追蹤的聲音,回過頭看,原來是三隻虎,這三隻虎好像嘴巴張得很開,對著他們一直衝過來,這三個人就趕快一直跑,這三隻虎看到那些人,已經離開走了,這個女孩子人也很驚惶,十分哀嚎大聲地叫,這三隻虎就停下來,這孩子看到三隻虎停下來,她自己也安靜了,三隻虎就在女孩子的周圍分開,把這個女孩子包在中間。
這個女孩子看到三隻虎,在她的周圍,所以她也很害怕,在那裡都不敢動,經過了一天,開始追蹤的人到達了,這個女孩的親人也和警察,也到達那裡,大家圍著,要怎麼辦呢?虎把她包圍著,要怎麼辦?大家也不敢太冒險,所以還是圍為在外面,也不敢作聲,不敢出聲,擔心虎如果回過頭來,所以大家也在那裡不敢亂動。
這三隻虎也看到有人來了,也很溫馴,虎性也沒有發作,就此這三隻虎就起身,靜靜走過去了,這個故事是杜撰的嗎?不是,是真的衣索匹亞有這樣的新聞,大家感覺在猜測,獸醫也出來猜測。
報紙這麼寫,可能這三隻都是虎母,也有母性,很可能這個女孩子,當她在那裡哀嚎、害怕、大聲喊叫,這之間可能母虎天性,所以把這個女孩子,當作是牠的孩子一樣,這種母性的愛,很有可能,這是在他們的報紙,有這樣的分析,這種猛虎類看到人就要咬了,為什麼能在那裡守護,也很有可能,很多人來的時候,牠們能那麼溫馴離開,可能這些虎牠們也有這種意識,說不定知道,女孩子在這裡有危險時,應該她的親人到達了,得救了,所以牠們離開,這也是不可思議。
用很多的方式在猜測,這和因緣果報有關係嗎?應該有關,我們在佛經中,也常常看到這麼不可思議,獸類救人的故事,也有人救動物的故事,這種都是六道中彼此造因,彼此有緣,所以互相都有這種果的報,這不是不可能,說不定這個女孩子,過去生中救了這三隻母虎,說不定也是,或是很多可以猜測,不過應該要歸類於因緣果報。
這個女孩子雖然,被這三個惡人抓走,雖然折磨她,但是她還是保全她少女的貞潔,雖然是三個惡人,也沒有殺害她,只是折磨她、處罰她,來到這裡,所以及時有虎出現了,這也是很奇妙,因緣的會遇實在是不可思議,學佛者不能不相信因緣果報。
所以在:
經中說言
業報至時
非空非海中
非入山市間
無有地方所
脫之不受報
唯有懺悔力
乃能得除滅

這個意思就是說,只要你有業,業報來時,你怎麼跑都跑不掉,怎麼逃都逃不掉,業若是尚未會遇,如何也死不了,在佛經中,有這樣的一段故事:
三個人神通廣大,一位仙人看到了說,你們三位兄弟,你們會不同一天生,會同一天死,怎麼死呢?一個應該是被火燒死,一個……,反正三個人不同的死法,他說,奇怪,我神通廣大,我怎麼會這樣呢?但是心裡也會覺得,不過這是仙人,好像鐵口,他所斷的都差不了多少。
所以三位兄弟就說,如果說我們會同一天死,我們就分開,說我會被火燒,我要到大海中,我搭一艘船到海中,火怎麼燒得到我呢?另外一個就說,好,這樣我去山上,相信我在山上躲幾天,無常找我不到;又另一個就說,我去城市中,城市中那麼多人,無常也不一定找得到我,人那麼多,怎麼找得到我呢?
所以三個人分開了,結果三個人,船上突然起火了,我們也常聽到,海上的船起火,所以這個人偏偏跑到船上,船上著火,一樣燒死了;一個跑到山上躲避,結果偏偏被猛獸咬死了;一個是在大都市中,人群很多,碰上有人打架,剛好從那裡經過,被人誤殺,這樣也死了。
所以,無論是海中:
非空非海中
非入山市間
無有地方所
脫之不受報

無論你是在空中或是海中,無論去到哪裡,或是山裡、都市,無論是在哪裡,絕對沒有地方你逃得過,絕對是逃不過,所以「脫之不受報」,沒有,沒有這樣的事,所以:
唯有懺悔力
乃能得除滅

懺悔清淨,不再造因,就不會再受果報了,過去若有過,就要趕快懺悔,懺悔即清淨,懺悔即不受報,但是過去做過的也要結案,未來我們要時時懺悔,所以業,所說的業報,業就是種子,業就是因,報就是果,你既然有這株蘭花的種子,那就是因,有人拿去,設法去培養它,生長出來的就是蘭花,種子,很多的緣會合起來,果出來了
所以有業就有報,報就是讓你們知道,這個就是蘭花,我們若是只看過蘭花,不曾看過蘭花的種子,種子擺在面前,我們也不知道,它是蘭花的種子,雖然因讓你看了,但是結果報出來讓我們知道,就是這樣子,所以這個報就是感受。
我們自己所做的,我們自己也有這個感受,既然因已成、果已就,給我們的感受,人和我們那種果已成的感受,當然這中間,就是有很多緣來成就,所以報就是果,因能趨果,因就會一直向果靠過去,只要你有這顆種子,自然就一直成就那分果。
就如我們被哪一對父母所生,就是有這分業緣,這分緣,你和父母有這分緣,所以牽引你這顆種子,來這裡受生,出生之後一樣,就是不斷不斷,向未來的果去進行,所以因能趨果,就是一直隨著業力,一直被誘因去,一直到長大,一直到我們起心動念,所做的一切善惡,所以因能趨果,因能這樣一直隨著果的業力,一直去。
果能造因,因為你現在已經到這個時候,你的心態、身形,你去造作什麼,又再因又生起了,所以前世因、今世果,今世因、來世果,所以因就是這樣互相,所以因果,果因循環不斷,是因果或是果因?所以因果、果因,這種循環就是無盡期。
業是因 報是果
因能趨果 果能造因
因果果因 循環不斷
我們若沒遇上如來,我們若是無法去聽聞佛法,不聞正法,不思惟,不修習,罪不懺悔,惡因就不滅了,苦果就沒有解脫的機會,所以業因若已經成熟,必定要受報,所以報一至時,盡大地無一不是酬報之處,報應若已經到了,無論你躲在哪裡,沒有一個地方報不到,所以無論是水陸空,俱無脫身之所,都沒有讓你有逃脫得過的地方,所以我們要知道因緣果報,業力若來臨,如何逃都逃不過,所以我們現在既然知道了,我們要趕緊時時懺悔,重業輕受,說不定有重業,但是還能讓我們逃過一關,我們再重新開始。
所以各位,因緣果報不可思議,請大家一定要相信,時時多用心。

Lecturer: Master Cheng-Yan
Subject: Understand Karmic Cause and Effect (知因識果)
In learning Buddhism, we must believe in and understand karmic cause and effect. There is no effect without cause, no retribution without conditions. We must believe that everything in our daily lives is inseparable from karmic cause and effect. Since it involves everything in our daily lives, when everyone comes here to practice, the rules of this practice center are to wake up early to join the morning practice. After we pay our respects, after the morning recitation is over, we sit here and listen to teachings. I share the Buddha-Dharma with everyone, so we all sit here. After paying our respects, the result is that we sit here. The cause for sitting here is to hear Dharma. So, there is cause and effect, effect and cause. With the causes and conditions of sitting here, we have the effect of hearing Dharma. This is our daily routine. After leaving the Buddha-hall, we go to breakfast. Why do we need breakfast? For our daily living. Yesterday is finished, and today we woke up early; it is a new day. We need energy and nutrients to carry on the day. So, we need to eat each morning. The cause of hunger leads us to eat our meal. After the meal, what is the effect? The effect is that we are full. When we are full, we have the energy for another day’s work. Then it is lunchtime. Why? Because we have used up over energy. Our three meals a day are due to cause and effect. Everything that we need in life is related to causes, conditions and effects. Is it really this simple? Are we only talking about daily living? Certainly not. In our daily lives, we easily create causes and affinities with others that lead us to experience future effects. So in life, each day consists of cycles of cause and effect. If we talk about our many lifetimes, there are also cycles of cause and effect. Effects do not take place without causes. If you do not create bad affinities, the corresponding conditions will not appear, and no effects or retributions will take place. So, we should mindfully experience this concept.

Daily living is inseparable from cause and effect. There is not effect without cause, no retribution without conditions. Buddhist practitioners must mindfully take this to heart in order to remain alert.

There was an international news report of a 12-year-old girl who was abducted by three criminals on her way home from school.They kidnapped her, took her to a house and forced her to marry one of the men.This girl refuses and struggled against them, so they tortured her.Her disappearance was reported to the police, and an investigation was opened.When these men learned the police were after them, they felt it was not safe to be around people, so they took her farther into the mountains.This was in Ethiopia, which is a large country.There was a forest close to the city.When they got there, they were tired.They threw the girl on the ground so they could get some rest, but they suddenly heard a sound behind them.It was as if someone was pursuing them.When they turned, they saw three lions that darted toward them with mouths wide open.The three men ran off.These three lions watched the men run off.This girl was very frightened and began to scream loudly in fear.The lions stopped.When the girl saw the lions pausing, she quieted down.The lions spread apart and surrounded the girl.The girl was very scared in their presence, so she dared not move.
After a day, the police and the girl’s family arrived at the scene.They did not know what to do because the lions still surrounded her.They did no want to take any risks, so they did not dare make a sound, fearing the lions might turn and see them.So, everyone stayed very still.
These lions also saw that people had arrived, yet they remained very docile, not fierce.
They stood up and walked away peacefully.
Was this story fabricated?No, it was a true news article from Ethiopia.
According to the article, many people, including veterinarians, speculate that they might have been female lions with maternal instincts.It was also very possible that the cries of this young girl, who was loudly calling out in fear, so they treated her as their own child.This is very possible.According to the analysis in the paper, such lions usually attack humans on sight.
Why would they be protecting her?It is possible that when the rescuers arrived, they left peacefully because of the lion’s motherly instincts.Perhaps they knew that the girl’s family had arrived to rescue her from danger.So, they left.This is all truly incredible.There are many different theories
Is this related to cause and effect? It should be related. We often see incredible stories in the Sutras about animals saving humans or men saving animals. Within the Six Realms, causes and conditions are constantly created.So, there are mutual and retributions. This is not impossible. Perhaps the girl had saved these lions in a previous life. There could be other reasons. But it comes down to karmic cause and effect. Although the girl was abducted and tortured by the three men, she was not sexually assaulted.The men did not kill her, they only tortured and punished her. They arrived at that place at the exact moment the lions appeared. It is truly amazing. The workings of karma are inconceivable.Buddhists must believe in karmic retribution.

So, “The Sutras indicate, when karmic retributions arrive, whether one is in the air, in the sea, in the mountains or in the city, there is no place to escape retribution” “Only repentance has the power to eliminate karma”

This means that if you have karma, when karmic retribution arrives, no matter where you run, where you flee, you cannot escape. Until you encounter that karmic retribution, you also cannot die.
In the Sutras, there is story about three individuals with spiritual powers.A celestial being told them that although they were born on different days, they would die on the same day. How would they die? One would be burned to death, while the others would be killed in different ways. They said, “That strange” “We have such strong spiritual powers. Why would we die like that?”
But in their hearts they also knew that this celestial being was almost always correct in his visions. So the three men decided to split up on the day that they would all die. The one who was destined to burn to death would take a boat out to sea so fire could not reach him.
Another said he would hide in the mountains so death would not find him. The third man said he would go into the city where death could not find him among so people “There are so many people how could death find me?”
So, the three men split up. Consequently, the first man’s boat caught on fire. We often hear about boats catching fire when they are out at sea. This man fled to a boat, but the boat unfortunately caught fire. So he burned to death.The person hiding in the mountains was attacked and killed by beasts. The last man, who in the city, surrounded by others, stumbled into a brawl as he was passing by, and was mistakenly killed.
So ,

“whether one is in the air , in the sea ,in the mountains or in the city ,there is no place to escape retribution.”

Whether one is in the air ,at sea ,in the mountains ,in the city or anywhere else ,there is absolutely no place where one can escape.So ,there is no such thing as “escaping retribution”.That does not exist.

“Only repentance has the power to eliminate karma.

Repentance purifies ,and if one does not create further causes,one will not receive more retributions.If we made mistakes in the past ,we should repent at once. Repentance brings purity. By repenting one does not suffer retribution.But , we still need closure for our past actions and in the future , we still must constantly repent.
So ,when we talk about karma and retributions ,the karma is like the seed. Karma is the cause ,retribution is the effect. If you have a seed of an orchid ,it is a cause. If you take it and cultivate it ,you will get an orchid.
With a seed ,when many conditions come together ,the fruit will ripen.So with karma , there is retribution.The retribution is the formation of the orchid.If we have only seen an orchid and not its seed ,we would not recognize the seed ,even if it were in front of us. Although we may see the cause ,the result ,the retribution,allows us to understand what it is.
Retribution is our experience Whatever we do,we will have certain experiences.When cause and effect take shape,we have the sensation of certain emotions towards others. Of curse,
many conditions are necessary for this to happen.
So , retribution is the effect. Causes can lead to effects ;the cause will continuously move toward the effect. If you have a seed ,it will develop into the fruit ,just like being born to certain parents is determined by karma and affinities. The affinities with our parents lead us to be born into their family. After birth, we continue to proceed toward our future effects.
So, causes can lead to effects. We are constantly pulled by karmic forces as we mature , give rise to thoughts and create good or bad karma. So, causes can lead to effects.Causes keep following the karmic of effects.Effects can create new causes.We have already reached this point due to our affinities and conduct,but what we create now gives rise to more causes. So ,the causes of previous lives are effects in this one,and the causes in this life leads to effects in future lives.
The cycle of cause and effect , effect and cause is continuous and never-ending.

“Karma is the cause and retribution is the effect.Causes can lead to effects,effects can create new causes.This cycle of cause and effect , effect and cause continues unceasingly.”

If we do not encounter the Tathagatha ,we would have no way to hear the Buddha –Dharma.”
Without hearin Right Dharma ,contemplating ,and practicing it ,without repenting transgressions ,we have no way to extinguish bad causes and there would be no chance to be free of suffering.
When karmic causes ripen,one will certainly receive retribution.So when retribution occurs ,
there is nowhere it will not take effect once the retribution arrives no matter where one hides ,it will still occur.Whether on land or sea or air ,there is no place ,one can hide to escape such effects.
So,we should understand karmic retribution.One can never escpae karmic forces. Since we now know ,we should always repent. Then perhaps we may suffer lighter retribution for our serious karma and be given a second chance.
So ,everyone,
karmic cause and effects is inconceivable
Everyone should believe in it and please always be mindful.
