走 路 法 門

 

 

 見X法師,出家之前學佛十幾年,

連續主辦了六年的齋僧活動,是南部佛教界居士當中的領導者,

一次有人問,為什麼您學佛十幾年都沒出家,

一遇到惟覺老和尚就決定出家了?

見X法師回答:「光是學老和尚走路,這一生就學不完了。」

 


 

 The Dharma of Walking

 

There was a man who had practiced the Dharma for over ten years before he became a monk. For six consecutive years, he had organized national activities that involved making offerings to the monks; he was an important leader of the lay Buddhist community in the south of Taiwan. Once, somebody asked him, “Since you have practiced for so long, why didn’t you become a monk sooner? Why is it that once you met the Master, you immediately decided to be a monk?” The monk replied, “Just to learn how the Master walks will, in itself, take a whole lifetime.”
