慈濟57周年

慈濟57周年

2023年,迎接慈濟五十七周年,花蓮靜思精舍響起了朝山佛號,以虔誠眾願的心,為周年慶祝福,齊聲念佛,三步一拜,身與心不離於道,也就離佛不遠,這條菩薩道的盡頭,即是人人本具的佛性。

在朝山拜佛的修行中,要將自己的歡喜、自己的智慧、自己的清淨本性都拜出來。所以朝山的本意在朝見諸佛,而禮拜諸佛更是要用一種虔敬、清淨的心來朝見。

「道者,路也」,證嚴上人期許人人:「要記得這一刻,回歸佛的本性。大家合心齊步,這樣的紀律、這樣的韻律、這樣的步驟,這樣的記憶一定會永遠存在。」凡走過必留痕跡,路上風光,唯有自己心靈體會。上人期盼人人都知「道」,因為這一條路就是「道」──菩薩道,是大家生生世世的方向。

回精舍朝山,大家最期待的就是靜心於主堂時,上人親臨開示;3月12日這天,臺東、宜蘭、高雄鼓山區志工就真的盼到了!
上人看到大家精進朝山很歡喜!「大家每天的早晨,把握時間,提早起床跟精舍一起連線,同時入經藏,同時聞佛法,天天都是自己的家庭就是道場。」

上人勉勵大家把路再開大、開闊,「打開了家裡的門走出去都是菩提大道,這是最期待的。」

因為上人期待你、我、他都能聞到佛法,還要以佛法的真精神,為人間付出,兼利人間,這才是真精進。

你,做到了嗎?

  佛陀的一大事因緣,也是你,也是他,也是我,我們人人共同會合起來,才能有「眾」。我時常都說三個人,這一個字會合起來就是「眾」,是大眾,大眾共同的心、願、力;這心願力,我們共同要投入,現在正是時候了。

  現在科技很發達,只要大家肯精進,大家每天的早晨,把握時間、提早起床,跟精舍一起連線,同時入經藏,同時聞佛法,天天都是自己的家庭就是道場,這總是處處道場、人人菩薩,會合起來就是人間大道,菩薩道直。

  菩薩道很直,這條路就是我們大家共同認同要走的路,而且是生生世世,所以天天要精進,人人家裡都是道場,打開了家裡的門走出去,都是菩提大道,這是最期待的。

  各位菩薩,你們回來精進、朝山不就是嗎?其實不只是這樣的朝山,期待人人每早每天起來,就可以有法聞、有字看,平常走入人間,人與人之間互相地互動,這種人間好人好事,都是在我們一生中,可以連連接接的傳承,這是一大事因緣,不只是我、是你、是你,他們大家一起走在這條菩薩道,這才是真精進,《法華經》一直都是真精進,就是要精進,這就是我們真正的學佛的真實法,這樣了解嗎?

The Buddha came to this world for a great cause, and it is a cause of you, him and me. When everyone comes together, we become a group. As I often say, the Chinese character of “group” contains three people. As a group, we share the same heart, vow and action. With that, we dedicate ourselves to the same mission.

There’s no better time than now. Thanks to modern technologies, if we want to learn, we can get up earlier than usual every morning and come online to listen to the Dharma together with us here at the Abode. By doing so, your home becomes a cultivation ground too. So anywhere can be a cultivation ground and anyone can be a living bodhisattva. Coming together, we walk on a broad path, which is a straight Bodhisattva Path. This Path is broad and straight. It is the Path all of us choose to follow life after life. So, please be diligent every day! At home, you learn the Dharma, and when you go out, you serve as a living bodhisattva. This is what I hope to see most.

Everyone, you are here for a bowing pilgrimage. In fact, apart from this, I hope everyone will get up early and make time to listen or read the Dharma. And when serving others, you will give your all for others. Such examples of good people and deeds are what we should pass on to others and generation after generation. This is a great cause, and it requires every one of us to take part and walk the Bodhisattva Path together. Such is true diligence. The Lotus Sutra teaches us true diligence, so we need to be diligent. This is the true purpose of learning the Buddha’s teachings. Do you understand? Yes.
