學 習 承 擔

 

 

 從各項公務的處理中, 

弟子們往往可由和尚的指導、棒喝下獲得法益。

在一次會議後,

 恰巧一位法師留在會議室內,

原本靜坐中的和尚,

竟然開口對這位弟子訓斥一番。

法師心想:「做錯事的不是自己,為什麼還會被罵…?」

但又轉個念:「師父,弟子願意學習承擔!」

才動完這個念頭,即見和尚的臉上露出一絲笑意。

 


 

 Assuming Responsibility

 

Once, after a meeting in the Master’s office, a monk stayed behind. The Master, who was there meditating, suddenly reproached the monk.

The monk thought to himself, “I did not make those mistakes. Why am I being reprimanded?” But then, becoming aware of his ego, he turned his thinking around to: “Shifu, I am willing to take responsibility!”

As soon as he had this thought, he saw the glimmer of a smile from the Master.
