提醒箴言   林钰堂 

 

 

存私
存着私心的代价就是不得证悟。

绝妄
行者需要着力去改的不是世界,而是自心的妄念纠结。

大错
人生最大的错误就是把微渺的个人老当成最重要的考虑——这是与真相完全不合的,却极难省悟。

自欺
一边说着想早点证悟,却一直忙着世间的事;这种自欺,别人只能默默看着,当人却浑然不自觉。

Mottos for Awakening

Yutang Lin

 

Keeping Self-interests in Mind

The price for keeping self-interests in mind is the ineligibility to enlightenment.

Extinguishing Delusions

What a Dharma practitioner should endeavor to do is not the changing of the world but the extinguishment of one’s own inner delusions and entanglements.

Huge Mistake

The greatest mistake in one’s life is to constantly regard oneself, a minute human being, as the most important factor to take into consideration—this is completely incompatible with facts, and yet it is extremely difficult for one to reflect on it and get awaken to the facts.

Self-deceit

On the one hand, one claims the wish to attain enlightenment sooner; and yet one keeps busy with worldly engagements. This kind of self-deceit, others can only look on in silence, and yet the person committing it can hardly realize what he is doing to himself.
