宏船老和尚圆寂廿六周年纪念

“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

宏船老和尚圆寂廿五周年纪念

“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

法界:是指诸佛与众生本性平等,理常一故,通称法界。

水陆:是指在水、陆中三界众生居住受报之处。空中飞行之众生须依陆地而休息,故属于陆地,加上水中生灵,共称水陆。
普度:是指悉皆度化六道众生,使之解脱饥饿之痛苦。
大斋:是指不限制的给予众生饮食。
胜会:是法施之意。除布施众生饮食外,又有诵经持咒之法施,令受苦众生心开意解,得法水之
滋润,故名胜会。
会者:聚集之意,教渡者与被教渡者集会于一堂。即是说:藉此启建水陆法会普度大斋之功德,超度六道中受苦众生,使之离苦得乐,趣入佛道。
