慈经(Metta Sutta)

这几天,马来西亚被宗教课题闹得热烘烘,成功的把原本受瞩目的贪污、舞弊、偷窃等等国际大笑话给掩盖了。。。

草禾刀没斤两作分析、指责与评论,只想在这非常时刻与大家分享慈经。。。

The Buddha's Words on Kindness (Metta Sutta)

This is what should be done
By one who is skilled in goodness,
And who knows the path of peace:
Let them be able and upright,
Straightforward and gentle in speech.
Humble and not conceited,
Contented and easily satisfied.
Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways.
Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful,
Not proud and demanding in nature.
Let them not do the slightest thing
That the wise would later reprove.
Wishing: In gladness and in saftey,
May all beings be at ease.
Whatever living beings there may be;
Whether they are weak or strong, omitting none,
The great or the mighty, medium, short or small,
The seen and the unseen,
Those living near and far away,
Those born and to-be-born,
May all beings be at ease!

Let none deceive another,
Or despise any being in any state.
Let none through anger or ill-will
Wish harm upon another.
Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings:
Radiating kindness over the entire world
Spreading upwards to the skies,
And downwards to the depths;
Outwards and unbounded,
Freed from hatred and ill-will.
Whether standing or walking, seated or lying down
Free from drowsiness,
One should sustain this recollection.
This is said to be the sublime abiding.
By not holding to fixed views,
The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense desires,
Is not born again into this world.

欲获得寂静的善行者,应如是修学:堪能、诚恳及正直,谦恭、柔和与不慢。

知足、易供养,少世俗务,生活俭朴,诸根寂静,谨慎和谦虚,不攀求於俗家。

不应做任何违戾事,免遭其他智者所谴责。愿一切众生皆幸福,安稳和快乐。

凡有生命者,若强、若弱、若长、若大、若中、若短、若粗、若细,尽一切无馀。

或可见或不可见,或远或近,或已生或未生,愿一切众生都快乐。

不要欺骗他人,或於一切处蔑视任何人,不应出於忿怒及仇恨而诅咒希望他人痛苦。

对一切众生应修习无限的慈爱心,犹如慈母用生命保护自己唯一的儿子。

让无限的慈爱心遍照於十方世界,上、下、右、右,不受阻扰,不怀仇恨,不抱敌意。

无论站着、走着、坐着、躺着,若不昏昧,应确立此念,能如是住者,即云“梵住”。

不陷於邪见,具有戒德,具有智见,及断诸贪欲,当决不再入母胎。


**慈经 Metta是巴利文,意謂著慈愛,但愿能將慈心傳遞給一切眾生:願他們都能幸福,安稳和快乐。

在生活中修行,在修行中生活。
烦恼即菩提。
佛经有句格言:“佛法在世间,不离世间觉,离世觅菩提,恰如求兔角。”
共勉之。
