VK Letter to Eldest Brother, 伟光给大哥的家书(31/5/2010)

大哥(楊運生):

祈望您安好。所以喜悅顏開為您寫(一篇)一舉兩得的勸文給(你)讀讀,給您了解(,)了解一切痛苦起源由自做,根源最(罪)首因無明,無明的意思是:”關於重要的,什麼都不重要。”比如說,現在要面對的事情,要妥當完善處理,如果不知道妥當完善處理,只是知用過我的經驗,而沒用道理的共同理念,配合目前所面對的事情,這是無明的。

哥,我在這每一天一定抽出時間學習覺法(離苦的),也抽出時間看看報紙,看到挺多新聞報導,有的人因無明而受了不應該的痛苦,這些人明明是無智的,但還气高驕傲的自認為自己知道,一直自以為是其他(人)的錯,而不反問自己的平等的良心。哥,佛經記載,祖師大德亦說:佛證得領悟成佛首先所說的話就是:”所有一切眾生(有情生靈)皆是平等,皆有佛性,只是被目前的幻境所迷惑了。”

大哥,我懇切加以敬意的勸您,要情願發心的學正覺、學智慧、學為將來做準備,為了要覺必須要向覺悟者學覺法,一定要平等的覺法,哪(那)才是清淨的,因為現在與將來於(与)來生,都不會作出傷害人,不會作出傷害一切眾生,那麼肯定就不會傷害自己。有好的理念,時間長了就可成為自己的觀念,有完善的觀念,前途無限光明。

世界曾有出世於已成為偉大的覺悟者,哪(那)就是佛祖,亦可稱世尊、如來等,另外還有十個名號,多數稱南無本師釋迦牟尼佛,佛的意思是”覺悟無上一切法”(覺悟者)。

大哥,要學真實覺法、平等法、清淨法,就一定要向佛祖的四眾弟子學,第一是法師和尚,第二是尼姑法師,第三男的學佛者,第四女的學佛者!

前前後後每一步都知道,前途一定很理想,但!一定要知道道理,不知道道理不要緊,重要的!要情願甘心的發心學道理,但一定要持久不變的恆心學習直到明白。

Big Brother:

I hope you are well. I write to you with great joy, and in this letter, I hope to share with you a writings which can help you to understand the root of suffering. All suffering comes from oneself, and the root of suffering is ignorance. For example, issues which one faces in life must be dealt with properly. Instead, if one only uses his experience and does not make use of reason, he is said to be ignorant.

Brother, while I am here, I take time off every day to learn Buddhism. I also read the newspapers, and have seen reports of people unduly suffering from their ignorance. These people are unenlightened, yet they arrogantly think that they know it all. They assume that other people are wrong, and do not question their own conscience. Brother, the first thing the Buddha said when he attained enlightenment was: “All sentient beings are equal and possess the nature of a Buddha. They are only confused by the illusion in front of them.”

Brother, I sincerely urge you to learn positive realization and wisdom, to learn to prepare for the future. To attain such wisdom, you have to learn from the enlightened. The realization of Dharma is only pure if it is realized with equality. Only then will you not harm any other sentient beings in this life and the next. You will definitely not harm yourself too.

When you have a positive mental framework, these concepts will be internalized to become your own. Once you have these wholesome concepts, you will have a bright future ahead.

The world once had a great person who attained enlightenment – the Buddha (who is known by many other names). Most of us call him the Namo Shakyamuni Buddha. The meaning of Buddha is “Supreme realization of all Dharma.”(The awakened).

Brother, if you want to learn various Dharmas, you must learn from the four kinds of Buddhist disciples: 1) Monks; 2) Nuns; 3) Male disciples and 4) Female disciples.

Once you understand all the steps, you will have a bright future ahead.

However, you must understand the essence of these teachings. It is okay if you do not, as long as you willingly learn. However, you must have the determination to keep going until you understand.
