誰 比 較 老?

 

 

 

X法師:「師父,弟子年紀大了,想休息,不要當住持。」

師父:「你幾歲?」

X法師:「弟子五十歲。」

和尚:「我七十多歲耶!」

度眾修行是沒有年紀之分的,隨時都應將修行度眾當本分事,

「不為自己求安樂,但願眾生得離苦」!

 



  Never Too Old

 

A monk who served as abbot in a Zen Center complained, “Shifu, I am getting older, and I wish to rest. I don’t want to be the abbot.” The Master asked, “How old are you?” The monk replied, “Fifty years old.”

 The Master remarked, “I am already in my seventies!” He then added, “Age is irrelevant in cultivation; to liberate sentient beings is our fundamental duty.  ‘Live not for your own comfort, but to free sentient beings from suffering.’”
