自 利 與 利 他

 

 


X師早期剛出家時,一日見到師父剛從山下回來。

師父一見到他就坐了下來,顯得十分疲憊。

X師當時心中十分不忍,關心地問:「師父,您累了吧?」

師父立刻說:「身累了,就休息一下;心跑掉了,

立刻收回來。修行是自己的事,度眾是本分事。」

 


 

 A Monk’s Calling

 

One day, a newly ordained monk saw the Master return to the monastery looking weary. Concerned, the novice monk inquired, “Shifu, are you tired?”

The Master calmly replied, “When the body is weary, simply take a rest; when the mind wanders, immediately bring it back. Practicing the Dharma is one’s individual responsibility; helping sentient beings is our fundamental purpose.”
