2011年冬季起七 & 解七法語-太谷精舍精進禪七

中台山太谷精舍2011年度冬季精進禪七起七法語
主七法師  釋見護


塵垢結,剎那不覺念轉塵,
      時時不覺塵成垢,垢深不除心梗結。
覺淨解,解結先須除心垢,
      垢重但怕淨心磨,淨心即是一念覺。

諸位知識,即今起七一事,最後一句又怎麼說法? 
這一念,不聞不見身外事,覺幻覺非至正覺

Initiation Verses   
Dirt, filth, knots:
At a moment’s delusion, a thought becomes dirt.
Live unmindfully, dirt accrues into filth.
Filth hardens into knots,  tumors of the mind.

Untangle, purify, awaken:
To untangle mental knots, face your filth
Even heavy soot can be cleansed by a pure mind
A pure mind begins with a moment of awakening.

Good cultivators, for this Zen-Seven Initiation, what is the last verse?

This present mind:
Hear nothing, see nothing outside of this room;
Wake up from all dreams and illusions to perfect enlightenment!

中台山太谷精舍2011年度冬季精進禪七解七法語
主七法師  釋見護

一輪鼓,敲醒眾生浮雲夢,
       活人當作死人醫,原來半生作傀儡。
二陣鐘,羅云直扣無聲處,
       世尊無口敷妙法,船子釣得明月歸。
 
諸位知識,即今解七一事,最後一句又怎麼說法?
三聲磬,撞破身心超三界,大好山色莫問誰。

Completion Verses
Roll the drum! Wake up from dreams that are but fleeting clouds.
You are cured by being treated as a dead person;
All your life living as a puppet.

Strike the bell! Rahula knocks where there is no sound.
Buddha’s profound Dharma is spoken with no words;
Boat monk returns with the full moon.

Good cultivators, for this Zen-Seven Completion , what is the last verse?
Hit the gong! Shatter body, mind, and the Triple Realms.
Enjoy the lush mountains and lands, but don’t ask who.
 

End—
