諸位佛友,

面對當前的情勢,作為上人弟子的我們有相當複雜的工作要做:一方面我們需要遵照醫療權威的指示,自我隔離,和人保持相當的距離,以免受人傳染或傳染他人。同時,上人鼓勵我們發心誦大悲咒及藥師經、咒以救護眾生。我們應該如何在智慧及慈悲二者之間取得平衡呢?我們可以很有智慧地保持身體健康,同時將正氣發散於虛空中,以利益眾生。

修行人對當前自我隔離的生活方式並不陌生,我們平素即在動中修靜,觀照及行動雙修。然而一般人卻相當難適應這種強制隔離的生活。對誠心的居士而言,無法到道場來共修,是件很難捱的事;他們會覺得遠離了佛菩薩。

因此,柏克萊聖寺的五位比丘:近佛師、近合師、近傳師、近威師及恒實,加入法總全世界分支道場的行列,想法子在網路上和居士們分享我們的日常功課。他們使用的工具有Zoom, YouTube, www.berkeleymonastery.org 網站,以及 YouTube 頻道: DharmaRealmLive. 利用國際網絡,我們可以將當前這個隔離的時代化為在網路上轉法輪及修行的時機。唱誦、講法、及佛曲可以安慰居士們,並激勵初學者研讀上人開示,迴光返照自心的智慧及慈悲。

您能想出什麼創新的方式來和那些有多餘時間的人分享佛法嗎?目前最需要的是讓孩童及青少年能參與;他們很難忍受強制隔離的生活方式。

孤獨的長者需要人關懷,不幸失去家人者需要阿彌陀佛及淨土的慰藉,人人都需要加油打氣。當前的局勢正好提供了布施無畏的絕佳機會,布施的對象甚至包括僧眾在內。當前最迫切及最適時的是上人的教導:『忍耐、忍耐、多多忍耐、不要生氣,娑婆訶。』

大家一起努力,咱們來日危機過後再見!

順祝 法安!
恒實 敬上

Dear Dharma-friends,

In times like these the job of Master Hua’s disciples is complex; on one hand we need to follow the instructions of medical authorities to stay isolated and “socially distant” from anybody who might infect us with Covid-19 and from anybody whom we might infect. But at the same time, Master Hua encouraged us to bring forth the resolve to serve living beings, particularly by reciting the Great Compassion Mantra and cultivating Medicine Buddha’s sutra and mantra. So how do we balance wisdom and compassion? We can be wise to stay safe and also be right to help by putting good energy into the atmosphere.

A cultivator’s lifestyle in a time of self-isolation is not that different; we seek stillness in movement, we balance reflection and action. Yet this enforced quarantine for many people is shocking, “unnatural” and hard to bear. For devoted laity, not coming to the monastery or temple is a genuine hardship, they feel distanced from the Buddha.

So the monks at the Berkeley Monastery, Jin Fo Shi, Jin He Shi, Jin Chuan Shi, Jin Wei Shi and I are joining with DRBA branch monasteries around the globe and finding ways to bring our daily practices online, using Zoom and YouTube and our websites: www.berkeleymonastery.org, and YouTube Channel: DharmaRealmLive. Thanks to the Internet, this time of isolation can be a time of service to society, turning the Dharma-wheel online with practices to cultivate. Chanting, Dharma-talks and music can bring comfort to our communities, and can inspire new-comers to investigate Master Hsuan Hua’s Dharma-teachings and to look within for wisdom and compassion.

What creative ways can you find to share the Dharma with people who have lots of time on their hands? What is particularly needed are ways to engage children and adolescents, who find enforced quarantine harder to endure.

Lonely elders need contact; those who have lost family members need the solace of Amitabha and the Pure Land; everybody needs good cheer and courage. Our situation provides a perfect time to practice the giving of fearlessness, even among our Sangha community. Most of all, the teaching of “patience, patience, gotta have patience, don’t get angry, suo puo he!” is timely right now.

Stay together and see you on the other side of this crisis!


Peace in the Dharma,
Heng Sure
