自 己 的 業 障 自 己 消

 


 

在靈泉寺時,某次坐香,和尚親自巡香,

幾乎每一位法師都挨了香板,唯有一位法師沒有被打香板,

他心想:「被打也不錯,消消業障。」

此時,只見和尚走到他身邊,微微躬身看了一下,

說了一句:「自己的業障自己消。」說完就走了。

 


 

  Dissolving Karmic Obstacles

During a meditation session at the Ling Chuan Monastery, the Master came to personally supervise the session.  He applied the awakening staff to almost all of the disciples.  One monk who was not hit by the staff wondered, “Why doesn’t the Master hit me, it would help to dissolve my karmic obstacles.”

At that very moment, the Master appeared beside the monk, bent forward slightly, looked directly at him, and remarked, “One should dissolve one’s own obstacles.”
