不 要 多 心

 

 

 一次佛學院的「楞嚴研討」課上,有位弟子提出了一則著名的禪門公案。

有人問趙州禪師:如何是佛法大意?趙州禪師的回答:庭前柏樹子。

 這位弟子又問老和尚:「可是師父,弟子不懂,為何佛法大意,是庭前柏樹子?」

大家屏息以待……

老和尚說:「就是庭前柏樹子。」

 和尚肯定的回答。

 


 

 The Cypress Tree

 

Once, in a discussion session on the Shurangama Sutra at the Chung Tai Buddhist Institute, a monk brought up a famous Chinese koan.

A monk asked Chan Master Zhaozhou, “What is the essence of the Dharma?” The Chan Master replied, “The cypress tree in front of the courtyard.”

The disciple asked, “But Shifu, I don’t understand, why is the essence of the Dharma the cypress tree in front of the courtyard?” All the disciples held their breaths in anticipation.

The Master firmly responded, “It indeed is the cypress tree in front of the courtyard.”
