出 家 人 的 本 分

 


 一位法師,法會中不小心跌傷,和尚要他休息療傷,

他卻放不下法會,執意要繼續發心辦事。

法師問:「度眾生,不是出家人的本分事嗎?」

和尚答:「堅住正念,是出家人本分中的本分。」

 


 

The Fundamental Duty of a Monk

 

A monk was injured accidentally in the preparation of a Dharma ceremony. The Master wanted him to take a rest and treat his injury, but the monk could not forget about the ceremony and stubbornly insisted on continuing his work. He asked, “Isn’t helping sentient beings the fundamental duty of a monk?”

The Master replied, “Firmly abiding in right mindfulness is the most fundamental duty of a monk.”
