金刚上师林钰堂瑜伽士开示录
无味真修

笔录:弟子疾呼


师教示,无论在修行或做法务上,若有「索然无味」之感时,那是修「无我」的最佳时刻。

不管是修行、做法务,或从事世间任何行业,我们的挑、我们的选,我们对它还有兴趣,或没兴趣,还是讨厌,这种种都是「我执」的表现。就如念佛,念一句佛号,念了几年,念到一点感觉都没有了,已处无味之境,还是继续的念下去,才能突破微细的执着,而达到念念都活泼、自在、充满法喜。当这些挑兴趣、选环境的心已不生起,才是「无我」的体验。

Today I said a few words on Dharma, and disciple Ji Hu found it helpful, so she recorded it down in writing, and I had revised it.

Vajra Guru Yogi Yutang Lin's Expositions on Dharma
Real Practice in Tastelessness


As I was taught by Guru Lin:
Whether we are practicing or doing Dharma services, when there is a feeling of "boring tastelessness" arising in our mind, that would be the best moment to practice selflessness.

No matter when we are practicing Dharma, doing Dharma activities, or engaging in whatever worldly business, our choosing, our preferring, our still being interested in it or having lost interests in it, or feeling disgusted by it, all these are displays of self-grasping. Taking repetition of Buddha's name as an example, just repeating one Buddha name for years, repeating until all feelings about it are lost—having entered a state of tastelessness, then do not stop just there, continue the recitation, and only then can subtle grasping be broken through, and then reach the state when each repetition is lively, at ease and fulfilled with Dharma bliss. When thoughts of preference to objects of interests or circumstances cease to arise, only then is there genuine experience of “selflessness.”
