莫怪其他 林钰堂

遇到甚么事
都拿来做修行想
因此悟到
莫怪其他

因缘是法界整体联贯的
要怪起来 哪里推究得完呢
怪哪一个 都是一偏之见
万法互为因缘 漫无头绪
若怪其余 又要从何修起呢

无从选择的 就接受是自身的业报
自行决定的 就了解责任终归出乎造业
修行着力处 在于自己行止上的抉择
   心在众生 目标在智悲圆融的证觉

记得释迦老子的叮咛
诸恶莫作 众善奉行
自净其意

自净其意就莫怪其他
心就离于纠缠了

Not to Blame the Rest Yutang Lin

Whatever came across me
Regarded it in the light of doing Dharma practice
Hence I comprehended that
Not to blame the rest

Causal conditions are connected throughout the Dharmadhatu as a whole
If one were to blame someone or something, how could the chain be exhausted
Blaming on whoever or whatever, is only a biased view
All things are mutually dependent as causes and consequences
    No beginning and no end
If one were to blame the rest, where could one begin to practice Dharma

Matters of no choices, simply accept them as fruits of one's own Karma
Matters decided by oneself, simply understand that responsibility will born of activities
Applying efforts on practicing the Dharma hinges on
Personal choices in actions and inactions
         Mind abides on all sentient beings and aims at full enlightenment
         That is harmonious union of Wisdom and Compassion

Remember the earnest advice of the old father Sakyamuni
Refrain from all wrongdoings, carry out all good deeds and
Purify your own intentions and thoughts

Working on purifying your own intentions and thoughts
Then you don't blame the rest
And Mind is thus set free from entanglements
