準 時 打 板

 

 

 

有位弟子,出家之前,擔心無法準時起床做早課(430am)

問老和尚:「師父,我爬不起來,可以不做早課嗎?」

和尚答:「好啊!」

出家後,這位法師所擔任的執事,居然是,打板(345am)

註:打板___寺院早起、晚息、集眾,以敲打板聲為號

 


 

Strike the Wooden Plank on Time

 

Before becoming a monk, a certain disciple worried that he would not be able to wake up on time to attend the morning service at 4:30 am.

He appealed to the Master, “Shifu, if I can’t get up, may I be excused from the morning service?” The Master replied, “Certainly.”

After he became a monk, the chore assigned to him was to strike the wooden plank in the hallways at 3:45 am to wake everyone up for morning service.
