金刚上师林钰堂瑜伽士开示录

进退维谷间的抉择之道



在修行上,常会遇到现实与理想的冲突,如何在进退维谷间作抉择?以下是佛友向林博士请示相关问题后所得的开示。

问:我很希望能作一个佛法的实修者,但许多现实需求的考量如尚未还清的欠款、每月必支的自费健保款,及其他固定开支,我完全没有存款,家人也无能力资助我,这些都是我无形的压力,令我挣扎于要不要工作或真的作一个佛法的实修者而无法抉择。
答:Everyone trying to move ahead on the path has his or her problems. When he or she solve the problem, that is when he or she advances.
每个试着要在道上更进一层的人都有他的困难;当他解决了他的问题,就是他进步的时候。

Advancement on the path is not something that others can make for you.
道上的进展不是能由别人来为你开创的。

I can only give you guidance in principle. The exact choice is to be made by each one herself.
我只能给予你原则上的指引,确实的抉择则是要靠自己去做决定。

问:那这原则是什么呢?
答:Devote fully to Dharma practices with the goal of achieving enlightenment.
以成佛为目标来全心投入佛法的实修。
