【證嚴上人開示】
我們在日常生活中能平平安安,衣食住行都不缺乏,我們應該要很知福,我們能:
能得飽食者是福中人
當知飢餓乏糧缺食苦
應於是人中起大悲憫
同體大悲心人飢我飢

大家不知道能不能用這種心情,來看大地苦難中的眾生,那種同體大悲的心嗎?
我們每天生活,衣食住行都不缺乏,但是有很多人,無論是天災造成斷糧斷水斷食,或是因為人禍造成貧窮苦難,在飢餓中,我們不知道能不能去體會,這樣的人生是多麼苦?他們的生活是多麼困難?要如何度日?要如何過生活?所以我們要時時起憐憫心,我們要多想想那些苦難人。
我們的生活中,我們就要克己、克勤、克儉,看能不能幫助那些,貧窮苦難人度過難關;只要人人付出一份愛心,這對人一定有幫助,何況我們經常在說,我們要知因知果報,因緣果報我們必定要相信,我們相信佛陀所說的因緣果報,我們在人間,若是不能好好修行,不會好好培養這分,人傷我痛,人苦我悲,這種心念若沒有培養起來,以為來人間就是要享受,來人間所擁有的東西,是我應該有的,他不肯去捨、不肯去付出,視大家的苦難好像和他沒關係,這種人生就是慳貪,這種人生就是愚癡。
所以我們要福慧雙修,我們不要有愚癡,我們要知道我們要發揮智慧,人人在人間,與天地人間共生息,天地若能風調雨順,人間,人人能平安豐衣足食,這就是我們的福。
所以我們應該是,與天地人間共生息,氣候若是不調和,人間人人貧窮斷糧食,我們到底能有什麼幸福呢?所以我們人人,要啟發我們的智慧,我們能體會人間的疾苦,我們才能去付出就造福,所以這樣叫做福慧雙修。
我們現在接下來這段懺文,與此有關係:
次復懺悔 餓鬼道中
長受飢渴 百千萬歲
不聞漿水之名罪報
懺悔餓鬼
食噉膿血 糞穢罪報

想想看,這段懺文也是很簡單,我們過去己懺地獄畜生罪報,我們現在應該要再懺悔,懺悔我們可能,也曾造餓鬼道的因,所以因為如此,我們還要在虔誠懺悔,「懺悔餓鬼道中長受飢渴」,長久以來,就一直受到肚子餓,沒有水喝,不只是沒飯吃,也沒有水喝,這種斷糧缺水,這在現在的人間也很多,時間很長久,尤其是受苦難時,那個時間會更長久的感覺。
現在資訊很發達,我們能夠知道,現在地球上,已經開始在缺糧了。
有一個報導,在亞洲北韓,開始向外呼籲,呼籲國際慈善機構,能夠幫助他們,你們知道嗎?北韓他們都是自尊心很強,他們說,能戰死、能餓死、能病死,都不肯向外求援,過去我們去幫助他們時,他們就是這麼說,但是我們也看到,北韓的人很勤奮,他們不是懶惰,他們很勤勞,是無奈天災,又無奈人禍造成南北戰爭,南北韓對立戰爭,所以造成天的不調和,氣候不調、人不和,所以人民受盡了苦難。
(2007年)八月間,又是水災,災難很大,我們很著急,我們很關心,想要去救援,看到這篇文字報導,知道已經北韓在受飢受餓,已經需要向外求救,所以我們也已經接到一封信,我們現在已經和他聯絡當中,希望他們能讓我們知道,更詳細了解,我們才能走到那個地方。
還有,感恩有一些慈濟人,在玻利維亞,玻利維亞它是在南美洲,最貧窮的國家,他們貧富懸殊,那個地方的人一天,平均不到一元美金的所得,差不多佔有百分之七十,還有百分之三十的人口,比較富有,一天所得是貧窮人的四十倍,四十倍是多少,四十元的美金,這樣我們就知道,這個國家非常貧窮,水道、地下水道都不暢通,所以稍微下個雨都是災難,所以常常都有災難。
人民時時都在受苦,(2007年)10月間的水災,然後我們11月間去幫助他們,從此開始結下了這分緣,這回是(2007年)的11月,又是大水、大災難,這回的大災難非常大,所以我們三個國家的慈濟人,已經會合起來了,阿根廷、巴拉圭還有美國,主要的糧食物品、團體,多數從美國過去,我們的義診團,已經開始展開了義診,路不通很辛苦,路斷了他們所走的,運送這些東西所走的路,是火車的鐵軌上,是汽車運載物資和人,危險啊,很多的路斷了,甚至車子行走間,尖尖的石頭刺破了輪胎,看他們在那裡真的是很辛苦。
慈濟人翻山過海,為了什麼呢?為的就是那些苦難人,在發放當中,他們人到達時是晴天,太陽出來了,但是開始在發放那時候,忽然間下大雨,我們慈濟人,趕快穿起雨衣來,準備要再繼續發放,雨衣穿起來,轉過身來,看到那些災民要來領物資,人人都沒有離開,就是在那裡排隊,排得很整齊,任憑雨淋,我們在那裡束手無策。
慈濟人各人所帶的雨衣穿上了,但是這麼多人在雨中淋雨,怎麼辦呢?只有一個辦法,趕快速度快點發,泥濘土地的路,頭上雨那麼大地下,但是他們不惜辛苦,還是這樣在發放。
各位,真的是讓我看到那種訊息,很不忍心,除了不忍心,那些受災受難飢餓的人,他們都沒得吃,慈濟人冒這這麼大的危險困難,在那個場面發放,真的是很不忍心。
不過,也為他們歡喜,歡喜人在人間,有這種大慈大悲大喜大捨,慈濟宗門不就是這樣嗎?慈濟人就是大慈大悲大喜大捨,不辭辛苦、人飢我飢,人傷我傷,人苦我悲,大家已經把內心,那股信實誠正的毅力拿出來。
所以他們在那裡雨中發放,車程中那麼危險,真的是很不忍心,不過,他們也已經發放完畢了,大家覺得幸好發放完畢了,平安了。
看,這就是我們應該要知道,受飢餓的人,哪怕是一天,同樣好像是很長的時間,所以地獄的時間特別長,就是因為那分苦很難過。
所以我們常常說很難過、很難過,難過的意思,就是很苦很苦,很難度過,所以他們在那裡,「長受飢渴」,長期的時間,多久呢?「百千萬歲」,時間這麼長,長時間受飢餓,無論剛才說過的玻利維亞,或是北韓,這種時日怎麼過呢?真難過。
所以也是人間在飢餓中時間長,尤其是在餓鬼道中,是「不聞漿水之名罪報」,我們在人間還有人間的菩薩,還有人道精神的團體去關心,去幫忙去送物資,送糧、送食、送水,但是在餓鬼道裡可沒有,不只是沒有,連聽到的機會都沒有,所以這也是一種罪報,「不聞漿水之名罪報」。
再「懺悔餓鬼」,「食噉膿血糞穢罪報」,真的是很可憐,沒水沒食,他們就要互相傷殺,吸食膿血,這實在是很殘酷。
其實我們人間也有,多久以前我曾經說過,有一個人就是說,缺血,人家就告訴他,缺血,鰻魚的血最補,尤其是活的鰻魚才有血,去買鰻魚,頸部穿洞,把牠抓來口對口,讓鰻魚的血滴入他的喉嚨裡,那條鰻魚被他穿孔,還活著在掙扎,鰻魚滑溜溜,所以手抓住時,牠一掙扎就鑽入他的喉嚨裡,那條鰻魚在他的肚子裡掙扎,後來去急診,原來肚子裡的腸子,真的是被牠掙破很多孔在胃腸。
各位,這就是「食噉膿血」,人生多麼愚癡,何況餓鬼呢?真是苦不堪,除了膿血以外,就是「糞穢」髒污的東西,我們也在人間看到,我們慈濟人去幫那些貧窮苦難,或是殘障,或是低能,我們幫他打掃時,看到他的食物都長蟲了,你怎麼吃?我吃那個,那是什麼?一掀開長蟲了,那樣在吃,看,這都是我們慈濟人,在很多這種家庭去看到的。
慈濟人這種愛心所緣,緣苦眾生,這種苦難眾生的家庭,慈濟人親眼看到,去為他打掃,趕快幫他清理好,趕快幫他補充,家庭所需要的物資,去為他補充,他應該能吃的東西,這也就是在人間,雖然他缺食缺糧,不過,只要他有這個因緣,他會遇到人間的貴人,他生命中的貴人去幫助他,這也要說,他受這種苦難報當中,應該他有一點好緣、福緣,才能遇到人間的貴人。
到底我們真的能遇到,我們能去為他付出,這樣的人,才有多少?像這樣的家庭,在人間不知還有多少多少。
所以不必說到餓鬼道,我們是不是看得到,我們不必說到那邊去,不過,我們要相信,一定有這樣的餓鬼道,所以我們更應該,要趕快自我反省,我們有得吃,我們有沒有浪費?浪費了就要趕快懺悔,即使有得吃,我們省下一口飯,我們若要吃十分飽,就吃八分飽,八分飽是健康之道,八分飽,我們能留二分來幫助人,我們平時浪費,我們是不是省下來?大家集合起來,我們來為這麼多的國家,那麼多的苦難人,我們來為他們付出,這樣不知多好。
所以我們要不斷來呼籲,看能不能免除人間飢餓中,受災中的眾生,所以我們要時時體悟,所以同體大悲、人飢我飢、人傷我痛、人苦我悲,所以我們人人要警惕自己,時時懺悔我們的浪費,我們要趕快即時付諸行動,要不然餓鬼的境界,可能也離我們不遠,所以我們大家要時時多用心。

Lecturer: Master Cheng-Yan
Subject: Universal Compassion (同體大悲憐憫心)
In our daily living we are safe and do not lack clothing, food, housing or transportation. So, let us recognize those blessings.

If we have full stomachs we are blessed. We must recognize our blessings. When we know that people are suffering from hungry and lack food, great compassion should arise. With universal compassion, we feel their hunger.

Can you view all suffering sentient beings with this heart of universal compassion? We do not lack clothing, food, housing or transportation in our daily living. But many people have no food or water because of natural disasters, or live in poverty because of manmade calamities. They are starving. Can we understand how painful it is to live like that? Their lives are so difficult. How do they pass each day? How do they live? So, we must always be compassionate. We must often think about those who suffer. So in our living, we must be disciplined, diligent and frugal, so that we can help the poor and suffering get through these difficulties. If everyone is willing to give a little love, that will certainly be helpful. Furthermore, we always talk about understanding karmic cause and effect. We must believe in karmic retribution, in the law of cause and effect Buddha taught us. In this world, if we do not focus on our practice, we cannot develop this sense of feeling others’ pain as our own. Without such a mindset, we think that we came to this world to enjoy ourselves. If we think everything is rightfully ours, if we refuse to let go and give, if we ignore others’ suffering, that is a stingy and ignorant way of living.
So, we must cultivate both blessings and wisdom. We must not be ignorant. We know that we need to manifest our wisdom. We all live in this world, and are interconnected with everything. If we weather is favorable, everyone can be safe with enough clothing and food. This is our blessing. So, we are interconnected with everything in the world. If we climate is imbalanced, everyone will be poor and lack food. Then how can we be blessed? So, we all need to arouse our wisdom so we can understand illness and pain. Only then can we give and create blessings. Thus, we cultivate both blessings and wisdom. The next passage in the repentance text is related to this.

“Next we repent the Hungry Ghost Realm, where we starve and thirst for millions of years, where we do not even hear of broth or water as retribution.”
“We repent the Hungry Ghost Realm, where we eat pus and blood, feces and filth as retribution.”


Think about it.This passage is also very simple.We already repented for the retributions of the Hell and Animal Realms.Now we should repent again.We repent because we may have also sowed the seeds for the Hungry Ghost Realm.
Therefore, we need to sincerely repent the “Hungry Ghost Realm where we starve and thirst.”For a long time, we have been hungry and had nothing to drink.Not only is there no food, there is no water.We see this lack of food and water very often in our modern world.
It has been around for a long time.In particular, during the periods of difficulty, the time feels like it goes by even slower.
Nowadays, with advanced communication technology, we are able to know when some part of the world is experiencing famine.There was a report that North Korea was appealing to international charities for help and aid.
Did you know that the North Koreans have a strong sense of pride?They say, “We will fight, starve, suffer to death, before we ask for outside help.”In the past, when we helped them, this is what they would say.But we also saw that the people of North Korea were very diligent.
They were not lazy.They were very hardworking, but they had no control over natural disasters, or over the manmade calamities that created the Korean War.
These disasters created disharmony, disharmony in the climate and among the people.
Thus the people experienced much suffering.In August (2007), there was a flood.It was a large disaster, and we were very worried, very concerned.We wanted to send relief teams.
When we was this article, we knew that North Korea was already experiencing famine, and was seeking aid from outside groups.
Furthermore, we have already received a letter, and now we are in contact with them.
We hope they can provide us with more details so we can understand and will be able to go there and help.
I am also grateful to some Tzu Chi volunteers in Bolivia.Bolivia is the poorest country in South America.There is great disparity in wealth.On average, they earn less than US$1 a day.This applies to about 70 percent of the population.The other 30 percent are wealthier.They earn 40 times what the poor do.How much is 40 times more?US$40.So, we know this country is very poor.Their aqueducts are obstructed, so every time it rains it is a disaster.Thus, there are often disasters.The people are always suffering.There was a flood in October (2007).We went to help them in November and thus we created this affinity.Then another big flood and disaster happened in November (2007).This was a large-scale disaster.So, Tzu Chi volunteers from three countries, Argentina, Paraguay, and the U.s., came together.Most of the food, goods and volunteers came from the U.S.
Our free clinic group met in Bolivia and held a free medical outreach.With the roads blocked it was very difficult .So, they used the railroad tracks. They drove cars over tracks to transport goods and people. It was dangerous!Many roads were cut off. And while the cars drove [over the tracks], sharp rocks punctured the tires. It was very hard work. Tzu Chi volunteers cross mountains and oceans. For what purpose? For those who are suffering.
When they arrived to distribute goods it was sunny .The sun came out. But as they began their distribution, suddenly a heavy rain began falling. Tzu Chi volunteers put on rain ponchos to continue the distribution. After putting them on, they turned around and saw the refugees waiting for goods.None of them had left. They stayed in very neat line as they were being rained on. We could not do anything about it. We had rain ponchos but what about all the people standing in the rain? There was just one thing to do distribute faster.
The road turned to mud as the rain fell hard. But they did not care how difficult it was, they still continued distributing. Everyone, it was hard to watch something like this. On top of knowing that people were suffering from disasters and starvation, it was hard to watch Tzu Chi volunteers face such great danger and difficulties to carry out the relief distribution.
But I was also happy for them. I was glad to see such great kindness, compassion, joy and giving. Isn’t this the Tzu Chi School of Buddhism? Tzu Chi volunteers have these four qualities. They do not fear difficulty, and feel others’ hunger as their own. They feel
others‘ pain and suffering as their own.They demonstrate perseverance, faith steadfastness, sincerity and integrity.
So, they continued the distribution in the rain. The journey was so dangerous. I could not bear it. But they have already finished the distribution, and thankfully once it was over everyone was safe. See, we should know that for those who are starving, even a day feels like a very long time.
So, time in Hell feels particularly long because it is hard to endure that suffering. Thus we often say, “It was a difficult time” A difficult time means that it was very painful, hard to get through it. So, in those places, they have “long starved and thirsted”.How long is very long? “Millions of years”. That is a long time to be hungry. Whether we are talking about Bolivia or North Korea, how do people live through those days? It is hard. In this world people also starve for long periods.
In the Hungry Ghost Realm ,”they do not even hear of broth or water as retribution “
In the Human Realm there are Living Bodhisattvas,humanitarian groups to care for these people. They help and deliver goods. They give out food and water. But this does not happen in the Hungry Ghost Realm. Not only do they not have food and water ,they do not even hear about them.This is also a form of retribution,“not even hearing of broth or water as retribution.”Then “we repent the Hungry Ghost Realm where we eat pus and blood,feces and filth as retribution.”
This is truly pitiable.There is no water or food ,so [in that realm ] they kill each other do drink the pus and blood.This is truly very cruel.We see this in the Human Realm, too.A while back I talked about a man who was anemic.Someone told him eel blood would be most helpful,especially from live eels. So ,he bought an eel and stabbed it in the neck. He held the wound to his mouth and allowed the eel blood to drip into his throat.After being stabbed , the eel was still alive and struggling.It was very slippery so as he grabbed it,it dove into his throat and continued to struggle in his stomach.
He went to the emergency room.His intestines were perforated in many places by the eel’s struggles.Everyone ,this is “eating pus and blood”.Humans are already so ignorant,not to mention hungry ghosts.This is truly unbearably painful.Besides pus and blood,there are “feces and flith” , dirty things. We also see this in the world.Tzu Chi volunteers help the poor and suffering ,and the handicapped or mentally deficient.When we help them clean,we see worms in their food.
“What do you eat?”“I eat that”“What is it ?”When we open the lid, we see worms.They still eat it. This is what our Tzu Chi volunteers have seen in many of these families.Tzu Chi volunteers’love connects them with suffering sentient beings.We see these suffering families first –hand so we help them clean,organize and stock up on household necessities.
When help them stock up on food they can eat.This is the Human Realm.They lack food , but if they have this affinity,they will meet their benefactor,who will help them.As they face this painful retribution,they still have some good and blessed affinities,so they can meet their benefactors in this world. How many people can we actually meet and help ?We do not know how many people,how many families in this world are living like this.
So , we do not need to wonder if we can see these things in the Hungry Ghost Realm.There is no need to go there.But we have to believe that it certainly exists.
So ,we should reflect on ourselves right away. We have enough to eat.Are we wasteful?
If we are , then we must repent at once.Even if we have enough , we can eat less.
Instead of eating until we are stuffed,we eat enough to be 80 percent full .This a path to health.We can also save 20 percent to help others. We are usually wasteful.Shouldn’t we save and collect those savings so we can help these many countries and all the people who are suffering ?How great would that be?
So ,we have to continue to appeal to people to help prevent starvation and suffering.So ,we need to always realize universal compassion , that their hunger is ours.We feel their pain and suffering as our own.
So ,we must all be vigilant.We must always repent our wastefulness.And immediately take action.
Otherwise , the Hungry Ghost Realm ,is not very far from us.
So everyone , please always be mindful.
