金刚上师林钰堂瑜伽士开示录

对弟子敬行的答问
Reply to Questions from Disciple Jing Xing

尊贵的上师,

Ven. Guru:

有的人说,信佛人都会有较多的障碍。 

Some people say, people believing in Buddhism will have more obstacles.

 

 A: It depends; only people who are adding karmas while doing some practices will be like this.
答:这要看情况;只有在修行时还继续造业的人们才会这样。 

 

 因为学佛是为了成佛,于是就得受报来消业。 

Since learning Buddhism aims at becoming a Buddha, so one need to receive karmic consequences in order to eliminate karma.

 

 A: 重报轻受 (heavy karma yielding light punishment), it means the karmic consequence is not due to practice of Dharma, but it is only so light because of Dharma practices.

Whoever has karma will receive karmic consequences in time. People who talk like this are people who does not know how to think reasonably.

答:重报轻受,这意味着业报并非修行佛法所带来的结果,但它会因为修行佛法而变得那么轻。任何人有业都将会承受业果。那些如此谈论的人并不知道该怎么样去理性地思考。

 

而越发大心的人,业报会更重,也因为不只是自己欲成佛,也劝导别人学佛。

And yet people who have more bodhicitta will have heavier karmic consequences, and this is because it is not only they themselves want to become a Buddha, they also persuade others to learn Buddhism.

 

 A: Wrong. People with Bodhicitta will be blessed by Buddhas and protectors, and hence their karmic consequences will only become lighter.

But it is possible that Bodhisattvas want to carry other beings' karmic consequences so that others can move forward on the enlightenment path.

答:这是不对的。有菩提心的人就会受到佛、菩萨和护法的庇佑,因此他们的业报将会转轻。但是有一种可能,那就是菩萨自愿替众生挑负业果,以便众生在菩提道上进展。

 

虽然说业报较多是自己前世或今世的。不是佛加注我等学佛人身上的。因此,发心教导及劝人修行,也会加速自己的业报,为己消业?不知对否?

Although karmic retributions are mostly due to one's past or present life (activities), it isn't something that the Buddha imposed on us. Therefore, people who aspire to teach and guide others in Dharma and to convert others to Dharma will accelerate their own karmic retributions to eliminate personal karma for themselves; is it right?

 

 A: The occurrences of karmic consequences have their causal conditions; it is not true that the consequences had been speeded up to arrive, but it is possible that other causal conditions that one has added have triggered the occurrences.


业报的发生有其因果条件;这并不是说业报会加速到来,但可能因为其他的新增因果条件,而引致业报的发生。
