Reposted from @transcending_consciousness - The Buddha taught that to realize enlightenment, a person must develop two qualities: wisdom and compassion. Wisdom and compassion are sometimes compared to two wings that work together to enable flying or two eyes that work together to see deeply . ・・・ Have you ever seen someone do something courteous and then get angry for not being properly thanked? True compassion has no expectation of reward or even a simple "thank you" attached to it. To expect a reward is to maintain the idea of a separate self and a separate other, which is contrary to the Buddhist goal . ・・・ Understand that, just as a bird needs two wings to fly, you must develop wisdom and compassion simultaneously. Wisdom is a correct understanding of reality and compassion is the desire for all beings to be liberated from the causes of suffering .

On today (15/2 lunar calendar) about 26 centuries ago, we witnessed the passing of a great man. Shakyamuni Buddha entered Nirvana, but before that, he told us to make the island rely on ourselves, his Dharma still exists, the righteous Dharma is the teacher. Wherever the Dharma is known, the Buddha still exists. Namo Shakyamuni Buddha 🙏💓. . . #nirvana #Buddha #buddhism #buddhist #dharma #shakyamuni #shakyamunibuddha #phatthichca #phatphap
Be gentle with yourself and others. So many of us grew up in environments where we got (often subtle) messages that there were particular ways we should and shouldn’t be in order to maintain our caregivers’ love and approval, and not upset our caregivers. This turns into a habit of “false self,” or continuing to hide or fake parts of ourselves in adulthood in order to take care of others’ emotions and keep them close. Little by little, by practicing mindfulness of what feels true to you in each moment, you can practice your authentic voice and learn that you don’t need to fake or hide to have everything you need. . This exploration is also a huge part of the creative process. What does your voice sound like in each medium through which you express? The best way to learn is to practice creating and expressing, over and over again, mindfully watching what feels true and connected to you. . How do you find your voice? How do you practice expressing?
I want to go back.

Part 1 When we look in the mirror, we one thing we don't want to see is an ordinary human being. We would like to see someone special. Whether we are conscious of this or not, we are simply not content to see an ordinary human being with neuroses, obstacles, and problems. We want to see a happy person, but, instead, we see someone who is struggling, We want to think of ourselves as compassionate, but, instead, we someone who is selfish. We long to be elegant, but our arrogance makes us crass. And, instead of a strong or immortal person we see someone who is vulnerable to the four streams of birth, old age, sickness, and death. The conflict between what we see and what we want to see causes tremendous pain, the pain of self-importance. We are imprisoned in this pain by a sense of specialness or self-importance. Self-importance is the underlying clinging we have to I, I , I. me me me mine mine mine which colors all of our experience, if we look closely we find a strong element of self import in everything we think say and do. how can i feel good what will others think what will i gain what will i lose. these q are all rooted in our self import. even our feeling of not measuring up to an idea of who we think we should be is a form of self importance , we like to see ourselves as strong and in control but we are more like a fragile eggshell that is easily broken, this makes us feel deeply vulnerable and not in a good way this vulnerable self requires protection, armoring, the gathering of forces and the construction of walls. as a result we become painfully trapped. we are increasingly fearful of relaxing with things as they are and increasingly uncertain that anything will work out the way we would like. it takes courage to go beyond self-importance to see who we really are, but this is our path. the point of all meditation teachings formal or informal is to reduce self importance and make room for the truth, this process begins with self-reflection. a questioning spirit , the Indian Pandeeta said "to merely question that things are not as they might seem to be can shake the very foundation of habitual clinging" this questioning spirit is...cont in comments

Part of this journey is being conscious of not only what I consume , wear , etc. , but also the ink that is placed on my body. If it isn’t Vegan ... chances are you are placing bone char, glycerin from animal fat, or gelatin inside of your body. Bad Karma that I’m proud to no longer partake in. Thank you @jasonwillpokeyou from @needlepeaktattoo ( South Lake Tahoe, CA. ) for being a part of my continued journey - Ram Ram 🙏

📚【聖嚴法師開示精選】如何建立正確的人生觀?  做為一個佛教徒、三寶弟子,必須要有正確的人生觀。所謂人生觀,就是在探究我們來到世界的原因。就佛教而言,它有兩個原因:第一、我們是來受報的;第二、我們是來還願的-不是還債,還債的心裡是痛苦的。  接受果報,是因為我們相信,在這生之前,我們已經有過很多很多過去生;無量生死以來,對人對己,造了種種的善業、惡業,然後這一生才來受報。但有人會懷疑:為什麼在現實人生中,常有好人受惡報、壞人受善報的情形呢?其實,我們常常不曉得自己做了什麼、說了什麼、動了什麼念頭;有時則是沒有察覺、忘了,或是刻意不去想它;而我們對這一生都不清楚了,更何況是對過去生呢?  報有兩種:一種是福報,一種是苦報。人人都希望金玉滿堂,鴻福齊天,但就是沒有想到,自己真有這麼大的福報嗎?福報就是我們過去做的種種善事、好事,對人、對眾生有意義的事,而現在一點一點地回收。苦報和福報是相對的-有苦、有樂,樂就是福報,苦則是因過去所做不善的事而得的罪報,像是我們所遇到的種種折磨、衝擊、阻礙和不順利。  人遇到苦難或問題時,通常會認為是別人的錯,而讓你痛苦,或是環境讓你痛苦,但這是真的嗎?我們應該先反省、檢討一下,是不是因為最近自己的身體不好、心情很苦悶,因此見到什麼事、遇到什麼人,都覺得心裡很厭煩。如果反省檢討後,覺得不是自己的問題,則要以還願的心態來接受它,當以還願心態面對,心中就不覺得苦,也就不是苦報了。  我想大家都曾有過這樣的經驗:家人在外面受了氣,回家後將氣出在你身上,結果你可能又把氣再出在別人身上。其實遷怒並不能消氣,只是把自己的問題變成他人的問題,然後一個遷怒一個。所以,當我們被遷怒而受到衝擊的時候,要先想到自己是來受報的,然後再想既然自己已受了報,還能夠讓別人消消氣,真是一舉兩得。能夠這樣,你就是個有菩薩心腸的人。  我們到人間是來受報的,這個觀念一定要建立起來。因為是來受報,所以碰到問題,就不必生氣、不必痛苦,反正也已經沒有其他的道路走;但受報不是接受了就算了,我們還要想辦法解決對方的問題。如果自己心裡難過,就用佛法來化解自己的煩惱;如果對方有問題,就用智慧來幫助他處理,而不是以牙還牙、以眼還眼。如果能這樣面對事實,我們就是菩薩行者;否則,不僅自己痛苦,還影響對方也跟著痛苦;煩惱自己也煩惱別人,這是損人不利己的!  再者,我們的生命是來還願的。從小到大,有沒有發過什麼願呢?所謂發願,也就是希望做什麼。譬如:我將來長大以後,一定要對媽媽好;現在這個社會很亂,假如我有力量的話,就要貢獻社會,使社會安定;這些人真可憐,假如我有能力的話,我願意幫助他們。像是這類的願心,我想大家應該都發過,在我們的一生中都曾發過很多願,我相信大家在過去生都是菩薩,曾經一生一生地發過菩提心,希望能幫助人。現在皈依三寶的人,都要發〈四弘誓願〉:「眾生無邊誓願度,煩惱無盡誓願斷,法門無量誓願學,佛道無上誓願成。」因為所有的菩薩要成佛,都需要發這個願,所以我們叫它通願。  至於如何兌現?就是要奉獻自己、成就大眾。奉獻自己、成就大眾是沒有條件的,不是為了求回饋的,而是因為你發的願。發願不是為自己,發願是希望別人好,希望自己能努力付出,讓其他人得到利益、好處與恩惠。如果我們過去從來沒有發過願,現在發願也不遲;如果不肯發願,我們的人品將沒辦法提昇,堅固的自私心,就好像一根尖硬的刺,不時傷害著跟你接觸的人,這樣不僅傷害了自己,也傷害了他人。所以,要把心量放開,必須要發願,發願奉獻自己、成就他人。  受報是責任,還願是義務。義務是在我們本分的責任之外,奉獻自己、利益眾生,這是還願。受苦受難是受報,救苦救難則是還願。能夠在受苦受難中,還能夠救苦救難,那就是菩薩。  我們都是帶著不完美的身心在人間活動,而以不完美的身心來看這個世界,這個世界絕對是不完美的。雖然如此,我們可以受報的心態接受我們的現實人生,以還願的心態、觀念改善我們的生命,這就是正確的佛教人生觀。 (選自《帶著禪心去上班》) ---本文摘自《幸福告別:聖嚴法師談生死關懷》 . . . . #法鼓山 #法鼓山墨爾本 #墨爾本法鼓山 #觀世音菩薩 #flower #ddm #dharma #dharmadrummountain #ddmmelbourne #dharmamelbourne #buddhism #buddhamelbourne #buddhismmelbourne #melbournetemple #zenmelbourne #108自在語 #vegan #meditation #meditationmelbourne #melbournemeditation #禪語 #melbournevegan #vegan #禪坐 #墨爾本禪坐 #聖嚴法師108自在語 #佛 #聖嚴法師 #禪學 #佛學

윤회가 무슨 뜻일까요? 어제 한 일을 또 다시 하는 것을 버려야 하는 것입니다. 윤회의 본모습은 무엇일까요? 부처님이 말씀하시길 모든 것의 본모습은 본래 있는 것이 아니니 윤회도 본래 있는 것이 아니라고 하셨습니다. 결론적으로 우리가 반복하고 있는 윤회의 본모습이 실체가 없는 비어있음임을 인식하지 못하기 때문에 계속 ‘나’를 일으키고 있는 것입니다. 어두컴컴한 밤에 산에 올라갈 때 긴 것이 보이면 순간적으로 뱀이라 생각하고 놀라지만 그것은 환입니다. 환이 일어나는 이유는 그것이 뱀이 아니라 밧줄인 것을 모르기 때문입니다. 그러면서 마음의 두려움과 고통이 생겨납니다. 이처럼 눈에 보이는 모든 것들이 원래 비어있음을 모르기 때문에 그 다음 단계로 이것, 저것이라는 집착을 일으키고 나라는 생각을 일으키게 되어 고통이 일어납니다. 공인줄 모르기 때문에 고통을 일으켜내기 시작하는 것입니다. 우리가 성취하고 얻어야 한다고 생각하는 열반은 어디에 있을까요? 열반 역시 법이며, 일체만법은 실성이 공성입니다. 그런데 비어있는 것이긴 하나 열반의 모습이 있을 것입니다. 그것은 ‘환’의 상태를 벗어난 상태라고 표현할 수 있습니다. 잘못 보고 있는 모습의 실체가 존재하지 않는 것임을 앎으로 인해 환영들은 사라지게 됩니다. 뱀이 없다는 것을 안다면 금방 사라지는 것과 같습니다. 뱀이라고 보는 인식, 영상이 없어지면 두려움이라는 영상도 사라집니다. - 2016년 '해탈장엄론' 법문 中 http://cafe.naver.com/tashijong #티벳 #티벳불교 #캄따시링 #캄뚤린뽀체 #달라이라마 #명상 #tibet #buddhism #khamtashiling #khamtrul #rinpoche #dalai #lama #meditation

Everyone, please slow down when you are driving. This is not to scare you but this could happen to anybody at any moment. Please do not drink/text/rush and drive! Not only are you endangering yourself, you are also endangering other passengers & pedestrians! When I am driving, I see people rushing to get to places. But no place is more important than your life. I found out an acquaintance that I don’t know really well got into an accident and he is hospitalized. He is now in a coma with broken legs and damaged brain/eyes. Please be very careful out there. 😊🙏 I personally don’t drink but if you do, you have to know that your unconsciousness can be dangerous.

In the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peace that is available in each moment. . World-renowned Zen master, spiritual leader, and author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to make positive use of the very situations that usually pressure and antagonize us. For him a ringing telephone can be a signal to call us back to our true selves. Dirty dishes, red lights, and traffic jams are spiritual friends on the path to “mindfulness”—the process of keeping our consciousness alive to our present experience and reality. The most profound satisfactions, the deepest feelings of joy and completeness lie as close at hand as our next aware breath and the smile we can form right now. . www.gekkobooks.com/15446444/book-database #books #bookstagram #bookshelf #booklover #bookstagrammer #bookstore #chiangmai #thailand #bookdelivery #usedbooks #vintagebook #ร ้านหนังสือ #peace #เช ียงใหม่ #ประต ูท่าแพ #instagood #instaboobstagram #booklover #secondhandbooks #Buddhist #Buddhism #Bookclub #Reading #peaceiseverystep #thichnhathanh #bookworm #instagram #instapic #reading

Understanding Karma and Rebirth A Buddhist Perspective Rebirth and reincarnation are 𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐲 𝐚𝐜𝐜𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐄𝐚𝐬𝐭and have been since ancient times. What the next life will be is usually the question rather than whether it will be. 𝐈𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐖𝐞𝐬𝐭, on the other hand, we have our own religious and secular beliefs which usually do not include living another life, or at least not in this world or in this way. A common idea amongst Westerners is that annihilation is an unavoidable fact: 'When you're dead you're dead!' But unless one wakes up to the truth of it - East or West - one is caught in cultural conditioning and personal beliefs. Buddhism is about becoming aware of what life actually is rather than being blinded by beliefs and conditioning.

And he recognised that the part of ourselves which is aware, which sees and knows, is never born and never dies. He spoke of a direct 'seeing' into the nature of existence beyond words, beyond the intellect. Understanding the cause and effect process - the nature of karma and rebirth - and what lies behind it is the underlying message of this book. Diana St Ruth points out that Buddhism is a personal journey of discovery which involves seeing through one's own delusions. She leads us by degrees to a place of awareness, clarity of mind, and understanding. www.gekkobooks.com/15446444/book-database #books #bookstagram #bookshelf #booklover #bookstagrammer #bookstore #chiangmai #thailand #bookdelivery #usedbooks #vintagebook #ร ้านหนังสือ #เช ียงใหม่ #ประต ูท่าแพ #instagood #instaboobstagram #booklover #secondhandbooks #Buddhist #Buddhism #Karma #Rebirth #Bookclub #reading #gekkobookschiangmai #gekkobooks

Only one 𝐂𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐞 𝐁𝐮𝐝𝐝𝐡𝐢𝐬𝐭 work ever attained the status of an official scripture, the Platform Sutra of the Sixth Patriarch. Wisdom of the Zen Masters illustrates the key narrative of this text and follows the orthodox line of Zen transmission in a loosely chronological format from patriarch to patriarch, master to master. The result is a delightful romp through the history of forty or so illustrious and irreverent Zen masters, complete with enlightening anecdotes and disarming wisdom. In addition to the Platform Sutra, many episodes are drawn from other key Zen texts, including the Transmission of the Lamp, the Gateless Gate (Mumonkan), and the Blue Cliff Record. All of these are recognized as rich sources of the famous Zen koan. Wisdom of the Zen Masters is not only a perfect introduction to Zen Buddhism, but also an essential component of any Zen collection. www.gekkobooks.com/15446444/book-database #books #bookstagram #bookshelf #booklover #bookstagrammer #bookstore #chiangmai #thailand #bookdelivery #usedbooks #vintagebook #ร ้านหนังสือ #เช ียงใหม่ #ประต ูท่าแพ #instagood #instaboobstagram #ilovebooks #secondhandbooks #Buddhist #Buddhism #zen #believe #inspiration #religion #book #reader #reading #booklover #buddhist #wisdom
