Buddhism and life


Dharma is transcendental and adapted to the world, so the Buddha said that he was admonishing the world to be filial and reverent, and to be loyal to his relatives. The Blessed One said in the Infinite Life Sutra: 'Father and son, brother and wife, relatives inside and outside the family, should respect and love each other, and should not hate and envy each other; There is no connection between the two, and there is no need to be greedy; Don't contradict each other. ' It was Master Taixu who advocated life Buddhism, and Master Yinguang, the 13th generation ancestor of Lianzong, earnestly told his disciples that they should learn Buddhism from the beginning. The master said: 'If you want to learn from Buddha, you must first learn from Dharma sages. If practice is defiled, ethics is often ill-behaved, and you are still a famous sinner, how can you be a Buddhist disciple? ' It can be seen that Buddhism attaches importance to ethics, which is the same as Confucianism.

The five Confucian ethics are called 'monarchs and ministers, fathers and sons, brothers, couples and friends.' It is nothing more than the relative relationship between people. Master Yinguang said in his book with Buddhist monk Ding Fubao: 'In order to learn Buddhism, we must be humane, so that we can have fun. Therefore, to be kind to the father and filial to the son, each order should do its part in humanity, and then cultivate the law of the world. ' He also said: 'Those who recite Buddhism must be filial to their parents, serve teachers, be merciful and not kill, and cultivate ten good deeds. He must also be kind to his father and filial to his son, respectful to his brothers and sisters, obedient to his husband and wife, benevolent to his master and loyal to his servants, and scrupulous to his own share. ' It is not the words of Yinguang Master who used Buddhist monks to pretend to be Confucian, but the words of Zhaozhao in the scriptures. This is the principle that Sakyamuni Buddha instructed his disciples to have in life more than two thousand years ago.

The most important thing in Buddhism is filial piety. In the Sutra of Good Life, Shizun tells us how to serve our parents when we are sons of man. In both cases, parents should be the first to do something. Third, what parents do is submissive. Fourth, parents are not afraid to disobey. Five, keep on doing what parents do. ' Shi Zun said in the Great Treasure Sutra: 'Parents are willing to have children born of Tetra Pak, so it is difficult to do and endure all unbearable things. We can tolerate all kinds of filth. Breast-feeding, no tiredness. ' The old man said in the 42nd chapter of the sutra, 'It is better to be filial to the second parent than to be human, heaven and earth, ghosts and gods!' Filial piety is the foundation of all ethics. If a person is unfilial to his relatives, he will also be disloyal to his country and unjust to his friends. An old Chinese saying goes, 'Seek loyal ministers at the door of filial piety.' It's very reasonable.

Children are parents, as mentioned above. How should parents treat their children? The Blessed One said in the Good Life Sutra: 'First, it is evil to make a son not listen. The second is to instruct them to do good. Third, love goes to the bone and marrow. Fourth, propose for your son. The fifth is to supply the demand at any time. ' Today's parents do more of the last three, and less of the first two. Otherwise, why are there so many young criminals in the streets?

In the same sutra, the Blessed One also indicated that couples, relatives and friends, and masters and servants treat each other. This copy is as follows for reference:

The husband said to his wife, 'One should treat each other with courtesy. The two are dignified and sacrilegious. The food and clothing of the three are available at any time. The four are solemn and timely. The five are entrusted to the family. ' The woman said to her husband, 'One starts first. Sit back. The three are in harmony. The four are respectful and obedient. The five are the same. ' The Blessed One said in the Sutra of Pure Practice that women should 'provide for their parents, serve their husbands, and look after their children.' This is similar to China's ancient motto of "three obediences" for women. This may arouse the opposition of women who call for the supremacy of women's rights, but the current social atmosphere is so bad. In so many personnel disputes, how many things do not involve women who do not obey women's ethics?

As for the treatment of relatives and friends, the scripture says: 'One gives. Both are good at speaking. The interests of the three parties. The four are mutually beneficial. Don't deceive the five. ' Relatives and friends should also respond: 'One is to protect and let go (dissuade them from taking the path of freedom). The other is to protect money and prevent it from wasting money due to immoral behavior. The three protect terror (support each other when they are in danger). The fourth is to teach and admonish others (to admonish others, but to act after others). The five often exclaim (praise the benefits of relatives and friends). '

The Lord said to the servant: 'One can do whatever he can. Both eat at any time. The three are ready to give thanks. Four diseases and medicine. The fifth is to indulge in leisure. ' The servant told the host: 'One gets up early. Both are meticulous. The three do not agree with each other. The fourth is the second. The five advocate the name. '

With the change of the times, the relationship between the principal and the servant is not as close as it was more than 2000 years ago. But in principle, it is still appropriate to treat each other in the above way between the boss and his friends, the housewife and the maid!

In addition to the ethical relationship, the Blessed One often teaches us to live within our means, increase income and reduce expenditure, keep clean and pay attention to hygiene. These are closely related to daily life. The Sutra of Good Health said, 'First learn the skills. And then get the fortune. ' Zaahan Sutra said: 'Start to learn craftsmanship and make it convenient to store property. If you have got the property, you should divide it into four parts: one is for your own consumption, and the other is for your own business; The rest is kept in secret to help the poor. ' In terms of medicine and health, the Blessed One warned us that diseases often arise from the following reasons: 'First, choose more food. 2、 Not close to medicine. 3、 Many worries. 4、 Joy and anger. 5、 Without compassion, we should treat the patient with anger. ' Avoid the above reasons and naturally reduce the number of patients. How to recuperate after illness? The Buddha said in the Five Dharma Sutras: 'First, the patient chooses to eat. 2、 Eat at any time. 3、 Get close to medicine. 4、 Don't worry. 5、 Take pity and look at the patient. '

We can see how simple and practical these scriptures are, and how hard they are to be written. The relationship between Buddhism and life, from the world law from individual to family, society and country. As for the four truths of the worldly Dharma, twelve karma, six degrees and ten thousand actions, as for becoming a Buddha, all are unprepared. With such a profound, comprehensive, broad and subtle magic method, how can we not convert ourselves to the Buddha?
