金刚经补缀 林钰堂

是非皆离入无二,无实之非去牵缠,
三段破立解活用,佛即非佛是名佛。

拙作〈《金刚经》要旨〉中,指出经中避免对立的论法有三:是非皆离、无实之非及三段破立。详见《养和斋明经集》。此经中以「甲,即非甲,是名甲」除尽一切法执。虽然如此,有些学佛者仍难免为「佛」所限之心态及行止。在此特地将经中未及标明之句补缀,愿能提醒「佛,即非佛,是名佛」,而彻底解脱之!

Subject: Appendix to the Diamond Sutra in Calligraphy_金刚经补缀翰墨

In my earlier work F0151 and Poem078, I pointed out the last crucial concept that was not explicitly mentioned in the Diamond Sutra, namely, that: Buddha, is non-Buddha, is named "Buddha."
在我早期的作品F0151及Poem078当中,我指出了在金刚经中并没有明确提及的最终决定性的观念,那就是,佛即非佛是名佛。

Today I wrote this in calligraphy to call attention to this important "final sentence."
今天我将之手书以唤起注意这重要的〝末后一句〞。


Attain Enlightenment Soon!
祝早成佛!

Appendix to the Diamond Sutra Yutang Lin

Disengaged from both right and wrong to merge into non-dual;
Negating as being insubstantial could eradicate entanglement.
Syllogistic denial and confirmation lead to lively usage;
Buddha, is non-Buddha, is named "Buddha."

Comment:

In my Chinese article "Essentials of the Diamond Sutra" it has been pointed out that there are three types of arguments in the Sutra to avoid dualism: Disengaged from both right and wrong, negating as being insubstantial, and syllogistic denial and confirmation. For details please read my book in Chinese "Yang He Zhai Ming Jing Ji." ("Collection of Expositions on Sutras from the Study for the Cultivation of Harmony") In this sutra the pattern of "A, is non-A, is named ‘A’" is used to free attachments to everything. Nevertheless, some followers of Buddha could not help but maintain attitudes and behaviors that are confined by "Buddha." Therefore, I offer the statement which is not spelled out in the Sutra, as an appendix to it. May Buddhists be reminded that "Buddha, is non-Buddha, is named ‘Buddha’," and become thoroughly emancipated.
