宏船老和尚圆寂廿七周年纪念

“佛法博大精深,其弘传之责任,不仅出家人,而尤赖在家居士共肩此艰巨任务。俾人人皆知正觉之大道。吾人研习佛法,约有远缘,近缘两大类别之根器,其夙根敏颖者,一闻千悟,可以顿超如来地,此曰近缘。其由积渐勤学,循序而进,终至解行相应,契合佛心而成道者,虽不一定今生证得,而待来生者,即曰远缘。便不论如何,诸位如能时时得有闻法之机会,或得阅及而受文字般若之熏陶;心生欢喜,以是因缘,即是种下菩提之因,久远将来,当亦有成佛之机会。故曰佛教方便多门也。”—— 摘自《宏船长老法汇》 宏船老和尚

法会结束后,有巴士车载送至宏茂桥巴士转换站
The monastery had catered bus to ferry participants to Ang Mo Kio bus interchange after the puja.

• One of the two prayers to be held during Ullambana on 5th September is the Compassionate Samadhi Water Repentance Puja. The prayer is to repent one’s unwholesome deeds, including karmic actions done in body, speech and mind.

The repentance helps to eliminate negativity in life and dedicate merits to all departed ones.

光明山普觉禅寺将于9月5日,盂兰盆节,礼诵慈悲三昧水忏。礼诵慈悲三昧水忏可消宿世业障,超度冤亲债主,礼忏者也能清净其身口意。如果参加这礼忏,可把这些功德回向给离世的亲人,希望他们能早日往生西方极乐净土。

• This year’s Ullambana falls on 5th September (the 15th day of the lunar 7th month). Commonly known as the Hungry Ghost Festival, Ullambana’s originated from the story of Venerable Mandgalyana and his mother. Venerable Mandgalyana was in meditation and discovered his mother was suffering after being reborn in the realm of the hungry ghost realm. He approached Buddha for help who advised him to make offerings to the monks on his mother’s behalf. The merit made through this offering brought relief to his mother.

农历七月十五,是佛教的盂兰盆节。 本寺谨定于2017年9月5日(农历七月十五日)举行盂兰盆法会。此法会源自于目犍连尊者救度他母亲的故事。《盂兰盆经》记载,目犍连尊者在禅定中见到去世的母亲在饿鬼道受无量苦,于是向佛陀求助,佛陀教导他设斋供养十方清净僧众,以僧宝的修行功德帮助母亲脱离饿鬼道。此布施之功德也能使供养者,往昔七世父母、六亲眷属得远离三恶道,现世父母及其本人,长寿无病无恼,衣食自然具足,身心安乐。

• The second prayer held during Ullambana on 5th September is the Yogacara Ulka-mukha Puja.

According to the Ulka-mukha Preta Sutra, Venerable Ananda ( a chief disciple of the Buddha) saw Lord of Hungry Ghost while meditating.

The Lord of Hungry Ghost was emaciated in appearance with hideous features, and told Venerable Ananda about the sufferings in the realm of hungry ghosts.

Venerable Ananda was told that he would die in three days and suffer the same fate as the Lord of Hungry Ghost.

Venerable Ananda sought help from the Buddha who taught him the proper way of bestowing food to the hungry ghosts, and to deliver these beings from sufferings through the Buddha’s teaching.

本寺将在当天设有施放瑜伽焰口。

据《佛说救拔熖口饿鬼陀罗尼经》记载,阿难尊者在禅定中见一饿鬼名曰焰口。其形丑陋,身体枯瘦,口中火然,咽如针锋,头发蓬乱,爪牙长利,甚可怖畏,住阿难前,白阿难言︰却后三日汝命将尽,即便生于饿鬼之中。

阿难尊者急忙到佛前哀求救度。佛对阿难说:焰口是观音菩萨的化身。为了度阿难尊者,佛陀为他说焰口经与施食法。从此以后,施放焰口,饿鬼都得到超度。在瑜伽焰口法会中,除了解除饿鬼饿虚之处,最主要是为他们说法,皈依,受戒,令他们具足正见,使他们解脱苦难,脱离恶趣,成就菩提。

莫生气 - Don't be angry

版本一(经典)

人生就像一场戏,因为有缘才相聚。
相扶到老不容易,是否更该去珍惜。
为了小事发脾气,回头想想又何必。
别人生气我不气,气出病来无人替。
我若气死谁如意,况且伤神又费力。
邻居亲朋不要比,儿孙琐事由他去。
吃苦享乐在一起,神仙羡慕好伴侣。


版本二

人生就象一场戏,今世有缘才相聚。
相处一处不容易,人人应该去珍惜。
世上万物般般有,哪能件件如我意。
为了小事发脾气,回想起来又何必。
他人气我我不气,气出病来无人替。
生气伤肝又伤脾,促人衰老又生疾。
看病花钱又受罪,还说气病治非易。
小人量小不让人,常常气人气自己。
君子量大同天地,好事坏事包在里。
他人骂我我装聋,高声上天低入地。
我若错了真该骂,诚心改正受教育。
要是根本没那事,全当他是骂自己。
左亲右邻团结好,家庭和睦乐无比。
夫妻互助又亲爱,朝夕相伴笑嘻嘻。
政通人和想天伦,晚年幸福甜如蜜。
邻里亲友不要比,儿孙锁事随他去。
淡泊名利促健康,文明礼貌争第一。
三国有个周公瑾,因气丧命中人计。
清朝有个闫敬铭,领悟危害不生气。
弥勒就是布袋僧,袒胸大肚能忍气。
笑口常开无忧虑,一切疾病皆消去。
不气不气真不气,不气歌儿记心里。
只要你能做得到,活到百岁不足奇。


版本三

头顶天,脚踏地,人生全在一口气;
切记气上有三记:怄气赌气发脾气;
怄气只能气自己,赌气彼此更对立;
拍桌打凳发脾气,有理反到变没理;
人生世上不容易,作践自己多可惜;
生气生上一分钟,六十秒钟没福气;
生气生上一小时,六十分钟冒傻气;
生气生上一星期,伤了肝来害了脾;
人生要想少生气,几件事项须牢记:
小事小非莫计较,一眼睁来一眼闭;
有人出语伤情面,未必全是有恶意;
有人处事拂我意,想必有其难唱曲;
有人仗势把人欺,多行不义必自毙;
有人误解我蒙屈,岂有迷雾笼四季;
有人背信把我弃,流水落花随他去;
有人优势超过我,十指哪能一般齐;
尺有所短寸有长,不去事事都攀比;
人间美景未看全,哪有工夫生闲气;
心态顺畅身体好,省下药钱旅游去。


启示

一个只会生气的人是蠢人,一个能够控制自己情绪,做到尽量不为小事生气的人是聪明人,聪明人的聪明之处,是善于利用理智,将情绪引入正确的表现渠道,用理智驾驭情感。 人生一世,草木一春。每个人都只有短短的一生,何不让自己活得快活、潇洒一些呢?

生气是常见的情绪反应,它时不时会让人情不自禁地表现出来。或许正是因为太常见了,所以很多人都不把生气当回事。殊不知,生气具有很强的破坏性,它能毁坏一个人的学业、事业、人脉、家庭和身体等。可以说,生气是人生幸福的最大障碍之一,是事业成功的拦路虎。

朋友,真的凡事莫要生气,生气了只能给自己带来无尽的烦恼。俗话说得好:忍一时风平浪静,退一步海阔天空。
