放 下 自 有 風 格

 

 

 

設計師最希望作品能走出自己的風格與品味,

但在中台工務所,和尚自始至終都在教導弟子──放下執著。

在每一個設計案中,設計部法師都會規劃數個不同的方案請和尚指導批示,

而上呈時多半會刻意將自己不滿意的作品放在最底下、最不顯眼的地方,

但和尚總是會選出一個讓眾人「十分意外」的案子。

雖然如此,在按件施作後,往往呈現出意想不到的完美效果!

當弟子們不再執著於自己的想法時,

和尚就會說:「好啊!這樣做很好,就照這樣去做。」

 


 

Letting Go

 

At Chung Tai, the Master always teaches the disciples the primary importance of letting go of attachments.  This is especially applicable in the architectural office, since architects and designers usually want to establish their own styles and approaches.

In every project, the monks in charge would create a variety of designs and ask for the Master’s opinion. Invariably, the designers would put the designs they deem to be unsatisfactory at the bottom. Ironically, the Master almost always picked one of the less favored designs, which turned out to bring surprisingly wonderful results.

However, when the designers were no longer attached to their own views, the Master would say, “Good! This is a nice way to do it! Let’s follow this idea.”
