那 有 下 輩 子

 

 

 

一位弟子,修行上遇到瓶頸,對於自己今生是否能成就道業,

生起一念疑心。於是問和尚:「師父,弟子下輩子……

話未說完,和尚立即喝斥:「哪有下輩子!

修行就是一念萬年,萬年一念,了生脫死,就在今生。」

 


 

 Don’t Wait Until Next life

 

A monk who had encountered an obstacle in his practice became doubtful as to whether or not he could complete the Path in this lifetime. He therefore asked the Master, “Shifu, in my next life……”

Before he could finish his question, the Master immediately chided him, “Next life? In Zen practice, one extends this present mind to an eon, and an eon exists in this present mind.  In this very lifetime, liberate yourself from the cycle of life and death!”
