「无常」为根本   林钰堂  

 

 

讲「空性」,主要是去执。「无执」难在彻底。
倡「容忍」,着眼于开阔。「自限」屡屡成碍。
「大圆融」提醒法界整体,实无分界。
「整体因缘流转观」直指实相,粉碎见解。
前三偏于静止之心态;后一彰显实相之无常,流动不息。
无常则无可执;无常则自限为妄;
无常则无需分;无常则流转必然。
「无常」可通贯基本佛理。密勒祖师言:
「无常乃入佛之门」;旨哉斯言!

″Impermanence″ as the Root

Yutang Lin

Expounding on ″Blank Essence″ the purpose is mainly to get rid of grasping. The difficulty in realizing ″no grasping” lies in achieving thoroughness.
Propagating ″Tolerance″ aims at opening up one’s mind. Repeatedly ″self-limiting” constitutes the hindrance to its attainment.
″Great Harmony″ reminds us that the totality of the Dharmadhatu is indeed indivisible.
″Visualization on the Flow of All Causal Conditions″ points directly at phenomena as it is, and thus shatters all conceptual constructions.
The previous three lean on a static state of mind; the last one illuminates the impermanence of phenomena with its incessant flowing.
Impermanence implies nothing graspable; impermanence implies self-limiting is deluded; impermanence implies no need for division; and impermanence implies flowing change is a must.
″Impermanence″ serves to unify all essential Dharma principles. Patriarch Milarepa said: ″Impermanence is the Gate to Dharma.″ This statement is so truthfully to the point!
