          「一切有為法,
如夢幻泡影,
如露亦如電,
應作如是觀。」

今有眾等護法來山請僧說法,上堂。法無定法,說無定說,法尚應捨,何況非法?

又說:「若見諸相非相,即見如來。」

所謂「諸相非相」者,諸相即是一切相;非相者,不是實有其相,而是虛妄不實的。

你能明白這一切相,都是虛妄不實的,你能明白這一切相都是假相,財、色、名、食、睡,這都是幻化無常的東西,令人迷醉不能解脫;也就是因為著住到這個假相上了。

因為你著住到假相上,就把真的忘了,既然忘了真的,就不自在了。

你若能把這個假相看破了,眞相即現前了,眞理也明白了,眞正智慧也有了。

你能如此,方能對佛法有大利益,得大利益,得大安樂,能以前無古人,後無來者。

所以各位護法居士等,你只要把無明破了,煩惱斷了,這時候,實相般若的智慧自能現前。

所謂無明,這無明就是糊塗了,就是不明白了,你因為不明白,就做一些個顛倒事;顛倒事,就醉生夢死,在這兒輪迴六道裡,永遠不能出離。

所以各位護法居士,好自為之,勇猛向前精進,乃至成佛,花開見佛,悟無生忍,所謂

「願生西方淨土中,
上品蓮華為父母;
華開見佛悟無生,
不退菩薩為伴侶」。

-宣公上人一九九三年四月四日開示於長堤聖寺
       "All conditioned dharmas
Are like dreams, illusions, bubbles, shadows;
Like dew drops and a lightning flash:
Contemplate them thus."

Today some Dharma Protectors have requested this monk to ascend the Dharma seat to speak the Dharma. The Dharma is not fixed, and there is no fixed way to expound it. Even the Dharma should be renounced, let alone the non-Dharma!

It is also said,

"If one sees all appearances as non-appearances,
One sees the Thus Come One."

Non-appearances means they are false, not real. You should understand that all appearances are illusory and false.  Wealth, sex, fame, food and sleep are illusory, impermanent things that intoxicate people so they cannot be liberated.

This is all because they attach to false appearances and forget about the real. Once they forget the real, they are no longer free and at ease.

If you can see through false appearances, the true appearance will manifest. You will then understand the truth and have genuine wisdom.

If you can be like this, then you will greatly benefit Buddhism and gain great benefit and joy yourself. And you should be a pioneer who has no peer among those who come before and after you.

Therefore, Dharma-protecting laypeople, all you have to do is break through ignorance and cut off afflictions, and the Prajna-wisdom of the True Appearance will come forth of itself.

Ignorance means being muddled and unaware, and doing upside-down things. Leading a befuddled life, you transmigrate in the six paths, never able to escape.

Dharma-protecting laypeople, do your best and courageously advance towards Buddhahood. When the lotus flower opens, you will see the Buddha and realize the patience of non-birth.

The verse goes,

"I vow to be re-born in the Western Pure Land,
With the nine grades of lotus as parents;
When the flower opens, I shall see the Buddha and become enlightened to non-birth,
And irreversible Bodhisattvas shall be my companions."

How-to:  The Great Shurangama Samadhi -- Direct the Hearing Inward to Hear Your Own Nature

That is what perfect penetration really means. Why does [Manjushri Bodhisattva] select the organ of the ear? It is the easiest to cultivate successfully.

I believe that some of you already know how to develop this skill, while others do not. What does it mean to return the hearing to hear the self-nature? It is the skill used in investigating Chan. When you investigate Chan, you don't want to expend all your energy on seeking outside. You want to turn the light around and shine it within. Then you ask yourself, "Who is mindful of the Buddha?" "Who?" You want to put the "Who?" in your heart and then listen with your ears. Pursue "Who?" Do this nonstop. Don't let your skill become dispersed.

You investigate this topic in everything you do.

Walking, standing, sitting, reclining, don't be apart from this.
If you depart from this, you've made a mistake.

What is "this?" It is the question, "Who is mindful of the Buddha?" You don't have to ask out loud; ask in your heart and listen with your ears. Listen within, not outside. After you have listened within, your heart and your hearing-nature will eventually merge into one. And then in some unexpected way, at some unexpected moment, you will suddenly open enlightenment.

But you definitely must bring your mind and nature together. Don't let them scatter in all directions. Don't let them get dissipated outside. Collect them within. Return the hearing and listen to your own nature.

Eventually and naturally your skill will develop. Investigating a Chan topic and returning the hearing to listen to the self-nature are the same. And now everyone knows that using the organ of the ear in cultivation is the easiest method. So put your energy there and cultivate this dharma-door.

Now Manjushri Bodhisattva certifies as authentic this dharma he has selected. It is the gateway entered by Buddhas as many as dust motes / It is the one path to nirvana. He says, "Not only was Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva certified through his use of this dharma door, this method of perfect penetration that I am explaining, I, too, Manjushri, gave proof to this doctrine of perfect penetration of the organ of the ear. Not only myself, but in the past countless Buddhas also found this the one path to nirvana. It was by this Way that they reached the fruition of nirvana.  

 - The Shurangama Sutra Volume 5, with Commentary by the Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua  at Buddhist Lecture Hall, San Francisco, Summer of 1968 

 

Then Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva arose from his seat, bowed at the Buddha's feet and said to the Buddha:  "World Honored One, I remember when, as many kalpas ago as there are sands in the Ganges, there was a Buddha in the world named Contemplating the World's Sounds." "Contemplating the World's Sounds" is the English translation of the name Guan Shi Yin. This is the Guan Yin [Buddha] of old. That Thus Come One, Guan Shi Yin, also cultivated perfect penetration by means of the organ of the ear.

 

It was under that Buddha that I brought forth the Bodhi-resolve. That Buddha taught me to enter samadhi through a process of hearing and reflecting.  The Guan Yin Buddha of old taught him [Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva] the process of hearing and reflecting. It is from the wisdom of hearing, the wisdom of reflecting, and the wisdom of cultivating that he entered samadhi. Here, "reflection" does not refer to the thinking of the sixth mind-consciousness. Rather, it has the meaning of quiet consideration, the skill of Chan.

 

Initially, I entered the flow through hearing and forgot objective states. With the wisdom of hearing, one listens inside, not outside. Not chasing after the objects of sound means not following them out. Earlier, the text spoke of not following the six sense-organs [eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body, and mind] and not being turned by them. This is known as, Returning the hearing to hear the self-nature.

Returning the hearing means not listening to external sounds but turning back instead to hear your own self-nature. It means,

Gathering in your body and mind.
It means not seeking outside.
Turn the light around and shine it within.

Here the text says that Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva "entered the flow," which means he returned and listened to the self-nature. Enter the flow of the dharma-nature of a sage. He "forgot the objective states." All the "dust", the defiling objects of the six-sense objects [forms, sounds, smells, tastes, objects of touch, and dharmas] as perceived by the six sense-organs [eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body, and mind], was forgotten.

Since the sense-objects and sense-organs were quiet, the two characteristics of movement and stillness crystallized and did not arise. The source of the six sense-organs and six sense-objects ceased to be. It was severed. Here he entered the flow of his own self-nature. When that happens, your self-nature is still and quiet. When this quietude reaches an ultimate point, the appearance of movement and stillness ceases as well. Basically, movement appears as movement and stillness as stillness, but now, although these two characteristics are as clear as crystal, they do not arise.

 

After that, gradually advancing, the hearing and what was heard both disappeared. As this pure and clear state of quiet increased, as day by day it became more full and complete, the hearing that was capable of hearing the self-nature eventually disappeared. It, too, was gone. The ability to hear and the objects of hearing both vanished. The organ of the ear was capable of hearing, and the self-nature was what was being heard, but now they, too, were gone.

 

Once the hearing was ended, there was nothing to rely on. Since the hearing-nature was gone, there was no attachment. At that time it was "producing the mind that does not dwell anywhere."

Awareness and the objects of awareness became empty. Even the perception of awareness vanished, was emptied out.

 

When the emptiness of awareness reached an ultimate perfection, emptiness and what was being emptied then also ceased to be. The emptiness of the nature of awareness reached an ultimate state of perfection. Then the mind capable of creating vanished, as did the states that were made empty, so that then there wasn't even any emptiness! As long as emptiness remains, you're still attached to emptiness. But now, for Guan Yin Bodhisattva there wasn't even any emptiness.

Since production and extinction were gone, still extinction was revealed. Since the mind subject to production and extinction vanished, the genuine bliss of still extinction manifested. That state is inexpressibly blissful.

 - The Shurangama Sutra Volume 5, with Commentary by the Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua  at Buddhist Lecture Hall, San Francisco, Summer of 1968 
 

Ananda, these are called the ten causes and six retributions of the hells. Many different hells have just been named, and all come from the ten habitual causes, which are these:  1) lust, 2) greed, 3) arrogance, 4) hatred, 5) deception, 6) lying, 7) animosity, 8) views, 9) injustice, and 10) litigation.

 

They result in the six intermingling retributions that involve the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body, and mind as they react to forms, sounds, smells, tastes, objects of touch, and dharmas.

 

 These hells are all created by the confusion and falseness of living beings. They come from giving rise to falseness within the one truth, Once ignorance arises, various karmic manifestations result from it. From the karma, various offenses are created. But if one returns the hearing to hear the self-nature and cultivates this path to enlightenment, then all this karma becomes empty. It disappears.

- The Shurangama Sutra Volume 7, with Commentary by the Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua

at Buddhist Lecture Hall, San Francisco, Summer of 1968

 

新!如何修 持:楞嚴大定 - 反聞聞自性

圓通實如是:為什麼說這個耳根圓通呢?也就因為這個耳根最容易修,最容易成功。 講到這個地方,你們每一個人現在大約有的會用功,有的還不會用功的。那麼怎麼叫「反聞聞自性」呢?這種的功夫,也就是我們現在用參禪這種功夫。參禪,你不要盡向外邊打妄想,你要迴光返照。譬如我們參悟話頭,現在參「念佛是誰」;你這個「誰」,要自己在心裏頭這麼念,耳朵要聽著這個「誰」,就想著追求這個「誰」。也就是總要用這種的功,不要打散了,散失你這個功夫。

你參悟這個話頭的時候,行住坐臥都是「這個」;所謂「行住坐臥不離這個,離了這個,便是錯過。」「這個」是什麼?就是「念佛是誰」。你這麼心裏想著它:「念佛是誰?」這個「誰」,不要念出聲來,在心裏邊念,耳朵要聽心裏這聲音,不要聽外邊的聲音。

你聽裏邊的聲音,聽來聽去,聽得你的心和你的聞性都歸一了。這個時候,你或者磕著或者碰著,或者有一個什麼動作,你會豁然開悟了。

你一定要把心性制到一處,不要叫它東跑西跑了!不要叫它向外散,要向內中聚;聚,你這麼聞,反聞聞自性,久而久之,自然這功夫就會生出來的。

所以參悟話頭,也就是和這個「反聞聞自性」的功夫,都是一樣的。現在我們每個人都知道用耳根修行是最容易的,我們都應該集中精神,來修這種的法門。

文殊菩薩又舉出證明,證明他所說的這個法是正確的。他說,此是微塵佛,一路涅槃門:我說這種的圓通法門,不單單觀世音證得這個法門,就是我文殊菩薩也是證得這個法門圓通的道理,我也是從耳根修的。不單是我,就是過去的微塵數佛,都是從這一條道路到涅槃那個果德、果位上去的

【編按】以下錄自上人八年代補述

弟子:「返聞聞自性」,那個「聞」字,大家都有一些個疑問,是不是真正在聽?還是把它倒過來反省的意思?因英文真正翻成聽,就是用耳朵聽。或是在英文用另外的一個字,包括迴光返照,反省的意思?

上人:聞和觀,就是仔細分析研究,這聞也不是聞,觀也不是觀,意思是你怎麼用怎麼都對的,沒有一定的,看你上下文的意思,怎麼樣貫通?這都不是死板板的,觀看和聞都是「仔細」的意思  

- 大佛頂首楞嚴經淺釋(六) 一九六八年宣化上人講述於 美國加州三藩市佛教講堂

 

當爾之時,觀世音菩薩即從座起,頂禮佛足,而白佛言:觀世音菩薩就從座位站起來,向佛頂禮,就對釋迦牟尼佛說了。。。世尊!憶念我昔無數恆河沙劫,於時有佛出現於世,名觀世音。。。在那個時候,有佛出現於世,這位佛的名字叫什麼呢?就叫「觀世音佛」──這是古觀音;現在這位觀音,是現在的觀音菩薩。。。

我於彼佛發菩提心:我在這位古觀世音的面前,那個時候就發菩提覺道的心。彼佛教我,從聞思修,入三摩地:這位古觀音就教我從「聞、思、修」,入三摩地。這個「聞」,就是一種聞的智慧;「思」,就是思的智慧,思念的一種智慧。這個「思」,並不是第六意識那個「思想」的「思」;這個「思」,就是「靜慮」;靜慮,就是用坐禪的功夫來修道。從聞思修入三摩地,得到這個定力。

初於聞中,入流亡所:這個「聞」,是聞的智慧。從什麼聞呢?本來鼻子聞香味也叫聞,這個聞是「耳根」。耳根,這種聞的智慧要怎麼樣聞呢?要向內聞,不要向外聞,不要跟著聲塵跑,就是「不隨」。前邊那個地方不是說不隨著六根【按:眼去轉?這就是反聞聞自性。反聞,不是向外聞,要回來;這個「聞」,是聞自己的自性。就是收攝身心,把身心都收回來,不要向外馳求,不要向外去找東西。要迴光返照,反聞聞自性──返回來聞自己的性。

所以最初在這個聞中,「入流亡所」,什麼叫「入流」呢?就是向裏回來聞這自性,聞這聖人的法性流。「亡所」,把所有外邊的塵,這六根【按:眼、六塵【按色、聲、香、味、觸、法的境界都忘了,這叫「亡所」。

所入既寂:那麼「亡所」和「入」,這六根、六塵的來源已沒有了,斷了,就入自己自性的流。入自己自性流,自己的自性也就寂靜了,非常之靜。在這寂靜到了極點,怎麼樣?

動靜二相,了然不生:動有動相,靜有靜相;但是現在動、靜這兩種相,很明瞭的它不生了!靜也沒有了,動也沒有了;這動、靜二相,了然不生。

如是漸增:像這種靜的清淨境界漸增,一天比一天就增加,一天比一天就圓滿。

聞所聞盡:乃至於聞自性這種聞的能力盡了,也沒有了!這「能聞」和「所聞」都沒有了,也沒有一個能聞的,也沒有個所聞的。能聞的是「耳根」,所聞的是「自性」;能聞和所聞都盡了,都沒有了。

盡聞不住:這個時候聞性既然盡了,也不著住了,無所住了。這個時候,就是「應無所住而生其心」了,任何地方也沒有所著住了。

覺所覺空:就連有所感覺這個覺悟的心都空了,都沒有了。

空覺極圓:這個空和覺性,都到最極最圓滿的境界上。

空所空滅:這能空的心和所空的境都滅了,沒有了,就連一個空也沒有了!你有一個空的存在,你還執著空呢!但是現在空也沒有了。

生滅既滅,寂滅現前:生滅這種的心既然滅了,這時候真正的寂滅之樂就現前了。那時候,哦,那種境界真是樂不可言的!

- 大佛頂首楞嚴經淺釋(六)一九六八年宣化上人講述於美國加州三藩市佛教講堂

 

阿難!是名地獄十因六果:阿難哪!上邊所說所有這麼多名稱的地獄,總起來有十種的習因、六種的果報。

 

這十種的習因,就是淫習、貪習、慢習、瞋習、詐習、誑習、怨習、見習、枉習、訟習等。

 

六種的果報,就是由六根【按和「色、聲、香、味、觸、法」六塵相接觸,所造的業果。

 

皆是眾生迷妄所造:這都是眾生,依真起妄,生了無明;由無明,又生出種種的業相,所造成的這一種罪業。要是反聞聞自性,修這個「覺道」,這一些業也就空了,都沒有了。

佛性人人本有,就像藏在家中的寶貝、藏在衣服裡的明珠,不須向外尋找;但是眾生迷失了本性,在六道輪迴中流浪生死,受到無盡的痛苦,若不經有智慧的人指示我們,我們怎麼會知道出離煩惱深流,登上菩提彼岸的方法...

>>Veggie Recipes 淨素食譜:

Do not think, "That good deed is trivial. I'm not going to do it. This bad deed is really minor. I'll go ahead and do it. It doesn't matter." For example, you think, "I'm vegetarian, but it won't matter if I eat an egg." But in the future when you are reborn as a chicken, you will know that it was because you ate chicken eggs. If you are not clear on these small matters, then you are "mixing good and evil, and the retribution is never off." That would not be fun.   --The Venerable Master Hsuan Hua
 

「勿以善小而不為,勿以惡小而為之。」不要說善小就不做,惡事很小我要做,做了也不要緊。譬如吃齋,說吃個雞蛋沒有關係,將來你去做雞的時候,就知道是從吃雞蛋來的。就這一點點小的問題,你弄不清楚,那叫「善惡夾雜,果報不爽」,不是很好玩的。   --宣公上人

- 楞嚴經 卷二

Your body and your mind

Are both manifested within

The wonderfully bright

True, pure, and subtle mind.

How is it that all of you

Have lost this fundamental wonder?

-The Shurangama Sutra

*  *  *

所有這一些有智慧的高僧,沒有哪一個不讚歎《楞嚴經》的。所以《楞嚴經》存在,佛法就存在;《楞嚴經》如果毀滅了,佛法也就毀滅了。

 

怎麼樣末法呢?末法就是《楞嚴經》先毀滅了。誰毀滅的呢?就這一些個天魔外道...

 

我們萬佛城這兒要立楞嚴的壇場,最好你們誰發心把這部《楞嚴經》,天天能讀它,或者一個鐘頭、兩個鐘頭,能把它像讀書那麼讀,能記得又能背得出...

 

我們這麼好的地方,大家要發大心,把佛經和戒律──《楞嚴經》、《法華經》和《四分律》、《梵網經》都能背得出來,這是最好的,這樣我們這兒一定是正法久住了。

--宣公上人  《楞嚴經》存在,佛法就存在

*  *  *

 

宣化上人盼望批判楞嚴經是偽經的人,趕快懺悔,痛改前非,他並祈禱,念誦楞嚴經、講楞嚴經、宣揚楞嚴經、流通楞嚴經的人,統統早成佛道。

-- 宣化上人赴台弘法綜合報導  萬佛城金剛菩提海245期

大家來誦楞嚴經 !剛開始時,能念一字是一字,一字一字向前推進。能念完第一遍不簡單,念多幾遍後就不覺得難了。

- "Sure, the parents can move into retirement homes...but there is no kindred affection to speak of. They are left on their own, almost all alone with no one to rely on.  It would be best for children to show filial devotion and care for their own parents, allowing them peace of mind in the waning years of their lives.,,.  It is especially efficacious if humans can be filial to their parents. How is that so?"  --Earth Store Sutra, Preface.  A Commentary by Ven. Master Hsuan Hua

或小聲念,或默念,除念佛外,不起別念,若或妄念一起,當下就要教他消滅。

常生慚愧心及懺悔心,縱有修持,總覺我工夫很淺,不自矜誇,

只管自家,不管人家,只看好樣子,不看壞樣子,看一切人都是菩薩,唯我一人實是凡夫。

果能依我所說修行,決定可生西方極樂世界

>>  Precepts webpage

 

>> 戒律網頁

See our Precepts webpage for more on the following:

“Precepts” means rules and regulations. Their purpose is:

To stop evil and avoid misdeeds.
Not to do any evil,
But to offer up all good conduct.

Precepts include:

The Precept Dharma.
The Precept Substance.
The Precept Mark.

The Precept Dharma includes:

The Five Precepts (for laypeople)
The Eight Precepts (for laypeople)
The Ten Precepts (for novices)
The Ten Major and Forty-Eight Minor Bodhisattva Precepts (for both left-home and laypeople)
The 250 Bhikshu Precepts
The 348 Bhikshuni Precepts

All of those precepts are to tell you not to do any evil but to offer up all good conduct. You should hold the precepts purely and not go against them.

 

It is really not easy not to do any evil but to practice only doing good. Therefore, when the Buddha was in the world, all of the Bhikshus took the Buddha for their Teacher; but after the Buddha entered extinction, they took the precepts for their Teacher. The precepts direct all of our actions to be in accord with the Dharma, and so one should act in accordance with the precepts and not in opposition to them.   - The Flower Adornment Sutra, Chapter Sixteen:  Brahma Conduct . A Commentary by the Venerable Master Hsuan Hua

- For lay Bodhisattva Preceptees:  Bodhisattva Precepts for recitation 菩薩戒子每月初一十五所誦的在家菩薩戒本

 

- ...Collecting one's thoughts constitutes the precepts; from the precepts comes samadhi; and out of samadhi arises wisdom. Samadhi arises from precepts, and wisdom is revealed out of samadhi. These are called the 'Three Non- Outflow Studies'....

- Tips for moving ants... 移開螞蟻小秘方...

A few drops of tea tree oil (available at major pharmacies)  around the areas of infestation will repel insects such as ants--and maybe termites--without harming them.  The smell of the oil alone is sufficient to drive them away.  Place a few drops ahead of them, and around them.  Do not block off  their retreat, but instead leave it open for them to turn around and go back.  All you have to do is be patient and allow them the time to make it  home--aliveDo not drip the oil on them--that will kill themA cheaper--but less potent--alternative to tea tree oil for repelling ants is household white vinegar used for cooking, which can be dripped or sprayed.  The smell of vinegar works to drive the ants away.

 

If you need to move ants out of the way, try wetting a small section of paper towel with water so that it is damp but not dripping wet.  Use the damp paper towel to lightly touch an ant from its side, and "pick up" the ant, then set the paper towel down at a different location (but still allows the ant to find its way home) and give the ant time to get off the paper towel.  Please do this one ant at a time to avoid accidentally crushing or drowning the ants. 

 

People have told stories that the more they killed insects, the more insects showed up in their houses.  Some tried sincerely transferring merit to them and that worked.

 

簡易驅蟻小秘方:滴數滴茶樹油("Tea Tree Oil"藥房有售)在螞蟻(或可試用於白蟻)出沒附近足以驅趕而不傷生。油的氣味就會讓它們避開。在它們前進的前方和四周滴幾滴,但不要切斷它們的退路,要留一條活路,讓它們能撤退回家。您只需耐心給它們一點時間,讓它們活著回家。請勿將油滴到它們身上,這樣會殺死它們!便宜--但效力較弱--驅蟻小秘方:廚房用的白醋!用滴的或噴灑,白醋的氣味也會讓它們迴避。

 

您若需將螞蟻移開,將一小片紙巾用水沾濕,以溼紙巾輕觸螞蟻將牠“沾”起,放到他處(但仍能讓螞蟻回家),給螞蟻時間從紙巾上走下來。一次請只“沾”起一隻螞蟻,以免壓死或溺死它們。

 

有人的經驗是蚊蟲越殺越多,誠心囘向反而有效。

    The Six Guiding Principles:  1) No Fighting, 2) No Greed, 3) No Seeking, 4) No Selfishness, 5) No Self-benefiting & 6) No Lying  -Venerable Master Hsuan Hua

    Freezing to death, we do not scheme.  Starving, we do not beg.  Dying of poverty we ask for nothing. According with conditions, we do not change; not changing, we accord with conditions. We adhere firmly to the Three Great Principles.  -Venerable Master Hsuan HuaWe renounce our lives to do the Buddha's work; we take the responsibility to mold our own destinies; we rectify our lives as the Sangha's work. Encountering specific matters, we understand the principles; understanding the principles, we apply them to specific matters. We carry on the single pulse of the Patriarchs' mind-transmission.  -Venerable Master Hsuan Hua

    六大宗旨:一)不爭  二)不貪  三)不求  四)不自私  五)不自利  六)不打妄語  -宣公上人
