没想到
Never Thought That

林钰堂上师
Guru Yutang Lin

 

弟子敬行最近整理抽屉才发现到有一枚〈念度母恩〉印,是以前请人雕刻的。

 

后来他又找到另五枚未雕刻之印章,一并都赠予我。这都是他十年前(2008年)出版《念度母恩》一书时,向黄瑾俐先生请购的。
他在电邮中感叹说,没想到十年就这样过去了!
我回谢函,就告诉他,这句话若改成:
没想到一生就这样过去了!
便可以做为提醒无常的箴言。

Recently disciple Jing Xing organized his drawers and discovered one seal on Nian Du Mu En, Lingering over Tara’s Grace, which was carved by Mr. Jin Li Huang upon his request.

See photos above.

A few days later he found 5 uncarved seal stones, and he sent all 6 of them together to me as presents. These were all purchased from Mr. Huang 10 years ago, in 2008, when he was publishing the book in Chinese on ″Lingering over Tara′s Grace″.
In the email he exclaimed, never thought that 10 years passed just like this!

In my reply thanking him, I remarked that, if this sentence is modified as:
Never thought that one’s life passed just like this!
Then it could serve as a motto to remind all on Impermanence.
