【證嚴上人開示】
修學佛法
發四等心 修六度行
分身無量
扶貧脫困 等教富樂
六情開朗 得法喜樂
這個境界多麼好,修學佛法,不就是要求得這樣的心態嗎?發四等心,四等心就是四無量心,慈、悲、喜、捨,慈無量、悲無量、喜無量、捨無量,這叫做四無量心,慈悲喜捨慈濟人都很清楚了,我們還要修六度行,六度大家更加了解,布施、持戒、忍辱、精進、禪定、智慧,這就是六度,度己又度人,還要分身無量。
我們修學佛法,不只是自己一個人修,獨善其身,我們還要將佛法傳承下去,法脈傳承,一傳一不斷地傳,將佛陀的教法能讓更多人了解,更多人同行菩薩道,所以,分身無量。看看現在慈濟人有多少?同樣一個名稱叫做慈濟人,這也就是分身,我們若是分身無量,就扶貧脫困了,有這麼多人去做,慈悲喜捨的工作,人人都願意將自己修行的經驗,跟大家分享,大家都是帶更多人,走入這條康莊菩薩道,從此岸度到彼岸去,這種六度行,浩蕩長的隊伍在人間,無量無數的人,共行在此菩薩道中,所做的事,就是扶貧脫困。
甚至等教富樂、六情開朗、得法喜樂,大家做得很歡喜,若問他,辛苦嗎?歡喜、感恩,人人六情都很開朗,六情就是六識,眼耳鼻舌身意,我們若能脫離,六識境界的慾念,我們眼睛所看到的,就是人人都是菩薩,來共行菩薩道,看到哪個地方,有貧困苦難的眾生,我們一樣起不忍心,同體大悲,人傷我痛,大家同樣這念心,同樣大慈的愛心,共同合起來去做幫助人人的事,所以六情開朗,全都是發揮愛,發揮無量無數的智慧。
所以無量法門悉現在前,無論做什麼事都得到法喜樂,這是多麼好的境界,所以我們學佛,做得到嗎?每天我們都在做,慈濟人每一天,都是在這個境界中,四無量心,修六度行,分身無量,因為人人都叫做慈濟人,你也是,他也是,我也是,人人都是慈濟人,所以我們分身無量,大家共同一念心,所以這不是做到了嗎?
大家是不是做到了扶貧脫困,這我們也不困難,大家都做到了,等教富樂做到了嗎?我們與眾生平等,教貧濟貧、濟貧教富,以平等的心,所以接下來這段懺文,又這麼說:
又願生生世世
在在處處
常為諸佛之所護念
能降魔怨 及諸外道
與諸菩薩俱會一處
菩提道心 相續不斷
看到這段文字,我們期待,我們能常常為諸佛所護念,降伏魔怨,我們人人,向善的心人人都有,但是業力因緣,常常都把我們纏住了,心不開、意不解,明明知道那是好事,明明知道佛陀的教法,是這麼教我們,明明知道,我們應該要去惡從善,明明知道,我們要開啟愛心培養慈悲。
不過,常常受到周圍的環境,縛住了我們,這也是一個業,所以我們因為能受到,「諸佛之所護念」,我們的心,人人心中有佛,因為學佛,佛入心來了,所以有這念佛心,會時時啟動我們的愛,這也就是佛之所護念,我們聽聞佛法在前,佛法入我們的心,我們看到外面的境界,聽到外面的聲音,我們自己的內心中,一直就有一念佛,所以能夠常常護念我們,只要有佛心,就能保護我們的行為。
起心動念,哪怕我們是凡夫,哪怕我們習氣還很重,只要你有佛心,有佛法入我們的心,自然我們很快,就能降伏很多魔怨,尤其是邪思邪見,我們若是遇到,其他那種邪思邪見,或是會迷惑人的邪法,只要我們心中有一念正念,我們就不會被他誘引過去。
所以我們要很感恩,聞法在前,佛入我們的心,所以我們能降伏很多的魔怨,是外面的困境纏住我們,或是我們內心的心境纏住我們,我們都能將之降伏住,這叫做克服。我們常常聽到,好不容易才克服了萬難,所以我才能這樣走過來,那個克服兩字就是降魔,知道外面纏住我們的,是因為我們和人結了不好的緣,所以好的朋友拉不走,不好的朋友對我們手一招,我們就跟著他到處走。
這就是都沒有好的緣,容易被他引誘,或是我們的內心,我們的習氣還沒有改掉,所以常常使我們無法精進,使我們無法啟發正思正念,這就是我們的習氣,所以習氣若克服掉,外面的外緣也克服掉了,這就叫做「降魔怨」。
「及諸外道」,我們這些魔怨克服了,以及外道的邪思邪念,都不會誘引我們了,我們能時時,「與諸菩薩俱會一處」,看我們有因緣進入慈濟來,叫我們的,慈濟人叫我們,師姊,今天我們要去哪裡,幫阿公打掃,你有空嗎?有啊,我有空,趕快把老人的環境,大家集合起來趕快去幫他處理,處理好之後我們自己多麼歡喜,雖然看到老人病了,環境骯髒,要去做那些工作,實在要克服自己的內心。
我們克服之後,與諸菩薩俱會一處,大家伸手去打掃,打掃了之後,那個境界亮麗起來了,相信我若這麼說,所有的慈濟人都很有同感,因為大家都做過,所以和菩薩大家也是在一起,所做的一切過程雖然很辛苦,不過,過後很快樂。
所以慈濟人不說辛苦,要說幸福,我有力量,我有這麼多的菩薩為伴,一起去扶貧脫困,這實在是很感恩的事,很幸福,所以「與諸菩薩俱會一處」,常常都和菩薩在一起,「菩提道心常續不斷」,我們能常常發菩提心,所以相續不斷,有時我們若想要懈怠一下,旁邊就又有慈濟人,師兄,我們今天要什麼,要去出坡,要去執勤……,好啦,人家在叫了,就趕快去吧,只要他起一念心,跨出一個腳步,和大家在一起了,道心又生起了,這就是「菩提道心、常續不斷」。
這個大環境,是菩薩俱會一處的大環境,所以能成長我們的慧命,能伸長我們的道根,再來說:
又願生生世世
在在處處
興顯佛法 修行大乘
分身無量 救度眾生
直至道場 無有退轉
看這個境界,我們又發願,因為我們過去的懺悔之後,就是回向發願,發願回向,我們所祈求的,未來、現在,我們要願「生生世世」,無論哪一生哪一世,從過去與現在未來的未來,「在在處處」,無論生在哪一個地方,我們都願意去「興顯佛法」,我們要去弘揚佛法,無論在任何一個地方,我們都要發願,佛法要傳承下去,人間的道才不會衰退。
佛法乃是天地宇宙的真理,這種真理我們若不好好傳承,未來的人類就很悲哀了,黑暗無光,唯有佛法,好像在宇宙間的日月一樣,所以這分智慧日月光明,我們必定要傳承,無論在哪一個地方,在在處處我們要發願興顯佛法。
所以我們現在修行,不是獨善其身,我們要「修行大乘」,「分身無量、救度眾生」,剛才不就是說,我們要分無量身,只有一個名字,但是有這麼多人,這是以同一種精神心念,做同一種事,人多,能分布到很廣闊的地方,所以分身無量,我們能「救度眾生」。
看到我們在台灣,無論是北、中、南、東,慈濟人都一直在推動,大愛一條街、好話一條街、靜思語一條街,每個人都走上街頭去,每一間店家都去貼靜思語,讓人看了,都得到洗滌內心的教育,常常聽到大愛一條街,回向回來的都是成果很好,有的人脾氣不好,看到那句話,我要改、我要改,有的人對世間漠不關心,看到那句話,他也懂得做好事不能缺我一人,他也趕快投入來做,這是在台灣。
其實美國,在2008年3月8日,全美國大家牽手連繫起來,就是去做推動環保,甚至靜思語,去發放靜思語,去推動環保,以及去送給人環保袋、購物袋,要帶動環保,把靜思語翻譯成英文,到處去和人結緣,真的是看了很感動。
還有慈青,在2008年3月2日,在美國聖地牙哥,他們在這一天也是聯誼,他們就是慈青聯誼啟慧根,他們也是一樣去做環保,甚至他們的聯誼,就是和台灣的慈青同步,他們也在推動,「晨鐘起、薰法香」,他們說,師公說的話他們實在聽不太懂,在美國出生的,聽不太懂,不過,他們要和台灣,他們的立願立志要和台灣同步,雖然台灣和那裡有時差,不過,他們是以他們那邊的時間,在電腦中聞法香,同樣一早天未亮就起床,看,令人多感動,他要響應台灣的慈青同步。
當然時間不一樣,不過,就是早上一早天未亮,我看到這種文字,我實在也很感動,而且又去他們的學校校園,去做環保,做環保談何容易,去撿垃圾,垃圾堆去回收,對他們來說,實在是很大的挑戰,但是他們就是有這分毅力,既然立志了,就有這分毅力,要如何培養愛心,要如何保護這顆地球,他們就是慈濟人,慈濟人總是一樣,投入去做慈濟事。
所以你看,「分身無量 救度眾生」,「直至道場 無有退轉」,各位,學佛不是以聽經的,也不只是去說法而已,是要身體力行,只要我們能身體力行,我們才能和很多好人在一起,我們時時才能發好願,無論是四無量心,四弘誓願等等,我們慈濟人總是同一個心念,分散在各地不同的國家,這樣在推動,這樣在付出。
又扶貧脫困,等教富樂,教富濟貧,濟貧教富,人人平等愛的付出,人人都做得很歡喜,所以六情開朗,眼耳鼻舌身的識,每天都很開心,聽到的也很歡喜,看到的也很歡喜,身體去做也很歡喜,這都是叫做六情開朗、得法喜樂,每天都做得很歡喜。
各位,我們真的是很有幸,能與諸善人俱會一處,在這個菩薩的大團體中,所以我們時時要惜福,當然這是我們造福的成果,心不要懈怠,所以日日精進,要多用心。

Lecturer: Master Cheng-Yan
Subject: A Continuous and Unceasing Bodhi-mind (常續不斷菩提心)
We practice the Buddha-Dharma by vowing to give rise to the Four Immeasurables, and practice the Six Perfections. With infinite manifestations, we will help the poor transcend difficulties and teach everyone to be wealthy and happy. With liberated senses, we attain Dharma-joy.

This state of mind is so wonderful. Don’t we practice and learn Dharma in the pursuit of this mindset? We vow to practice the Four Immeasurables, also known as the Four Infinite Minds, loving-kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity. Infinite loving-kindness, infinite compassion, infinite joy and infinite equanimity are the Four Infinite Minds. Tzu chi volunteers know these four very clearly. We also need to practice the Six Perfections. Everyone understands these even more. Giving, upholding precepts, patience, diligence, Samadhi, and wisdom are the Six Perfections. We transform ourselves as well as others. We also need infinite manifestations. We do not practice and learn the Dharma by ourselves or for our own benefit. We also need to pass on the Buddha-Dharma. We always pass down this Dharma-lineage. If more people understand the Buddha’s teachings then more people travel the Bodhisattva-path. Thus, there are infinite manifestations. Look at how many people are now Tzu Chi volunteers. They are all manifestations. With infinite manifestations, we can help the poor transcend their difficulties. So many people are willing to be involved with [Tzu Chi’s] work. We are all willing to share our experiences of our spiritual practice. We all bring more people onto this broad Bodhisattva-path and help them cross from this shore to the other.
By practicing the Six Perfections, we form a vast procession with countless numbers of people who travel the Bodhisattva-path together. Together we help the poor transcend difficulties, and teach everyone to be wealthy and happy. When our Six Senses are open and clear we attain Dharma-joy. These actions make everyone happy. If we ask volunteers, “Are you tired?” “No, happy and grateful.” Their Six Senses are liberated. The Six Senses are the Six Consciousnesses of eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind. If we can liberate ourselves from these cravings, everyone we see with our eyes is a Bodhisattva who can walk the Bodhisattva-path with us.
Wherever we see sentient beings in poverty and difficulty, we will be unable to bear it. With universal compassion, we feel their pain as our own. We all share this thought, the same great kindness and love, and work together to help everyone. So when the Six Senses are open and clear, we can fully express our love, our infinite and boundless wisdom. Infinite Dharma-doors appear before us, so no matter what we do, we attain Dharma-joy. What a great state of mind! Can we do this as we learn Buddhism? We are doing this every day. Every day Tzu Chi volunteers maintain this state of mind.We practice the Four Immeasurable and Six Perfections.We have infinite manifestations because everyone can become a Tzu Chi volunteer.You are one.So am I. Everyone is a Tzu Chi volunteer.Thus we have infinite manifestations.We all share the same goal.Haven’t we accomplished this?Haven’t we all helped the poor transcend difficulties?This is not difficult.Everyone can do it.Do we teach everyone to be rich and joyous?All sentient beings are equal.We teach the rich and help the poor, and inspire the poor to realize their riches all with an impartial mind.So, this next passage of the text says,

“in every lifetime, in every place,may we be looked after by all Buddhas, be able to defeat Mara and all heretics, gather together with all Bodhisattvas, and have a continuous and unceasing Bodhi-mind.”

Looking at this passage, we hope that we can always be looked after by all Buddhas and defeat Mara.We all have an inclination toward goodness.But Karmic forces and affinities constantly bind us.If our hearts are closed and we cannot let go, although we clearly know that something is good, that this is what the Buddha taught us, though we clearly know that we should eliminate evil and do good, that we should awaken our love and nurture our compassion, we are till bound by our surroundings.This is a form of karma.
Because we are “looked after by all Buddhas, the Buddha is in each of our hearts.”Because we learn Buddhism, the Buddha has entered our minds.With this Buddha-mind, we will always awaken our love.Thus we are looked after by the Buddha.“When we first listen to the Buddha-Dharma, it enters our hearts and minds.”“When we see the world outside, and hear the sounds of the world in our own hearts, we remain constantly mindful of the Buddha.”
So, we are looked after by the Buddha.As long as we have the Buddha-mind, we can guard our behavior and all our thoughts.Although we are ordinary beings, and still have many serious habitual tendencies, as long as we have the Buddha-mind, as long as the Dharma enters our minds, naturally we can quickly defeat Mara, deviant thinking and deviant views.
If we encounter others with deviant thinking and deviant views, or evil teachings that delude people, as long as we have Right Mindfulness, we will not be seduced by them.So, we must be very grateful.
First we listen to the Dharma, then the Buddha enters our minds so we can defeat Mara.
Whether it is external difficulties or our own mental states that bind us, we can defeat them all.We overcome them.We always hear people say, “I finally overcame all these difficulties.”
“That’s how I made it to where I am.”
To overcome means to defeat Mara.We know that external entanglements come from the negative affinities we created with others.Thus good friends cannot influence us, but we follow bad friends wherever they go.We are easily seduced because we do not have good karmic conditions.Or perhaps we have not yet eliminated our habitual tendencies.
Therefore we have no way to be diligent and cannot develop Right Thinking, Right Mindfulness.This is due to our habitual tendencies.If we can overcome these habits, we can overcome external conditions.Thus we “conquer Mara and other heretics.”Once we conquer Mara and cannot be seduced by deviant thinking, we will always gather together with all Bodhisattvas.
See, we have the affinity to have joined Tzu Chi. Tzu Chi volunteers will call on us, “Today we are going to help an old man clean” Can you join us? Yes, I can. Then together we quickly help clean up the old man’s surroundings.See, after we finish cleaning, we are very happy. When we see all ill old man in a filthy environment, we have to overcome our mindset to be able to help him. After we overcome it, we will be together with all bodhisattvas. If we all help clean, after we are done, the surroundings will be brightened.
I believe when I say this, all Tzu Chi volunteers feel the same way, because we have all done this. So, with Bodhisattvas, with all of us together, although the process is tiring, when we finish our work we are very happy.So Tzu Chi volunteers do not they are tired, they say, “I am that I have strength, that I am accompanied by so many Bodhisattvas. Together we help the poor transcend difficulties. This is something to be truly grateful for. We are blessed. ”So “we will be together with all Bodhisattvas”. We will always be with Bodhisattvas and “have a continuous and unceasing Bodhi-mind”.
We will always arouse our Bodhi-mind, so it is continuous and unceasing. Sometimes, if we want to be lax, a Tzu Chi volunteer next to us will ask, “What are we doing today? There is yard work or a volunteer assignment”.“Fine, since someone called me, I had better go”. Once that thought arises and we take that first step and join everyone, our will to cultivate arises. So we “have a continuous and unceasing Bodhi-mind”. This environment is an environment where Bodhisattvas can gather.
So, here we can develop our Wisdom-life and extend the roots of our spiritual practice.
Next,

“In every lifetime and in every place, I vow to promote the Buddha-Dharma and practice the Mahayana vehicle, to help save and transform sentient beings with infinite manifestations, until no one in our training ground will turn back.”

Look at this state of mind. We are making vows again. We make vows because after we repent, We make vows because after we repent, we dedicate our merits and make vows, then make vows and dedicate merits. We pray for the future and for right now.We vow that “in every lifetime”, no matter which lifetime, whether past, present, or future, and in every place, no matter where we are born, we will be willing to “promote the Buddha-Dharma”. We will promote the Dharma. No matter where we are, we will vow to pass down the Dharma so that in this world the Way will not lade.
The Dharma is the truth of the universe. If we do not earnestly pass it on, it would be tragic for people in the future. They would be in darkness, without light. Only the Buddha-Dharma can give light like the sun and moon. So we must pass down this wisdom, this light of the sun and moon. No matter where we are, in any place, let us vow to promote the Dharma.
So, we do not practice to benefit only ourselves. We must “practice the Mahayana vehicle, help save and transform sentient beings with infinite manifestations”.
Didn’t we just talk about having infinite manifestations?There is only one name for so many people. With the same spirit and intentions,we do the same things.With many people we can reach many places.With infinite manifestations we can “help save and transform sentient beings”.
In Taiwan ,In northern , central ,southern , and eastern Taiwan.Tzu Chi volunteers are all promoting.“A Street of Great Love ,”“A Street of Good Words ,”“A Street of jing Si Aphorisms”.
Everyone walks up and down the streets and posts Jing Si Aphorisms in every store. When people see them,their minds are educated cleansed. I have heard great results from
“A Street of Great Love ”.
People with bad tempers see these phrases and think ,“I want to change”.Some people were apathetic , but after seeing these aphorisms,they knew they were needed to help the world.
So they joined our ranks.This is in Taiwan.
In the U,S .,on March 8,2008,all Tzu Chi volunteers across the country promoted environmental protection together. They shared jing Si Aphorisms and promoted environmental protection.They gave people reusable shopping bags to carry with them. They translated jing Si Aphorisms into English and shared them with others. It was truly touching to see. On March 2 ,2008,our collegiate volunteers in San Diego also held a gathering and came together to develop their Wisdom –roots.They also did environmental protection work.Their gathering was held in conjunction with collegiate volunteers in Taiwan.
They also promoted “Wake up and smell the Dharma”.They said that they do not really understand what I say ,especially those born in the U.S.But they vowed to join with their counterparts in Taiwan. Although there is a time difference ,they do it based on their local time.They smell the fragrance of the Dharma through their computers and also wake up before daybreak.See ,that is very touching. They want to mirror the youth in Taiwan.Though it is not at exactly the same time ,they all get up before daybreak. When I read this , I was truly moved. They also cleaned up their school campuses. It is not easy to pick up garbage and separate the recycling.To them , this is truly a big challenge.But they have this sense of determination.
Since they made the vow,they have the willpowder to develop loving minds and protect this Earth. They are Tzu Chi volunteers. They all dedicate themselves to Tzu Chi’s work.When we do Tzu Chi’s work , we “help save and transfoem sentient beings ,with infinite manifestations ,until no one in our training ground will turn back”.
Everyone ,learning Buddhism is not just listening to Sutras or speaking Dharma.We must put it into practice.As long as we put it into practice,we can join together with many good people and always make good vows. Whether the Four lmmeasurables ,the Four Grand Vows of the Bodhisattva, etc.,every day Tzu Chi volunteers share the same thoughts.They are spread across many countries. They promote these ideas and give to help others. They help the poor transcend difficulties ,teach everyone to be rich and joyous,teach the rich to help the poor ,and help the poor to realize their riches.We give and love without discrimination.
Our actions make us happy. If all six senses , eyes , ears ,nose,tongue ,and body , are open and clear,we are happy every day.Everything we hear ,everything we see,and everything we do makes us happy. Thus our Six Senses are liberated and we attain Dharma –joy.We are happy with what we do every day.
Everyone , we are truly fortunate to gather with all these good people in this large community of Bodhisattvas. So , always cherish your blessing. Of course , this is a result of creating blessings. Do not be lax , be diligent every day.
Please always be mindful.
