Childcare

 

 

 

X師因指導沙彌尼學園的責任重大,

向和尚申請多派一位生活教授師來協助。

和尚問:「沙彌尼學園有多少人?」

X師:「十四位。」

和尚:「外面的學校一班都五十幾個人!」

X師:「那不一樣啊!他們只帶八小時,而我們要帶廿四時。」

和尚:「師父有一千多個弟子,那怎麼辦呢?」

X師合掌默然,心中打定主意要直下承擔。

 


 

Childcare

 

A nun had the heavy responsibility of instructing elementary and middle school age novice nuns, so she requested another assistant from the Master.

The Master asked,” Is it not true that secular schools normally have fifty students in one class?” The nun responded, “But that is different! They only need to take care of their students for 8 hours a day, but I have to be with them 24 hours a day.”

The Master said, “I have over one thousand ordained disciples. What should I do?” The nun silently joined her palms and resolved to accept her responsibility.
