Dear all,

Today and tomorrow, we will be offering the songs of praise to the Triple Gem at 2019 Joyous Rhapsody : *Brilliance* Concert.

Regardless, if you are a performer volunteer or someone bringing your family and friends to enjoy this musical offering, we will accumulate many merits for our path to Buddhahood.

It is praised and acknowledged by the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and lineage masters! It brings them much joy to see our bodhi endeavour!

There will be challenges. And often plans can not keep up with changes. However, like advised by our teacher. We can do this little by little. Step by step, purifying obscurations and accumulating merits.

It is with the right mind and motivation that we commit to this auspicious offering.

This will definitely be a sincere and pure dedication, increasing our faith and our belief.

We supplicate to the Triple Gem and our lineage masters for favorable conditions. May all who are involved in this offering will be blessed by the Triple Gem and may we all gain wisdom and compassion for ultimate happiness.

Rejoice to everyone’s dedication and commitment.

With Metta,

Irene Lee

感恩文殊菩萨展现《智慧之光》来加持所有努力表演、指挥、承担的同学,欣赏的观众及在场的义工!

全广第72讲:

因為這樣的關係,所以就顯出不同的次第,拿我們來說我們的根性,就是這樣。所以當越到後來教化那個教法的時候,自然而然演變分化成功這麼多的次第,這我們要了解的。所以譬如像《法華》上面講,不管任何情況你接觸到了一點佛法,最後都成佛,可是的確你進來的有你相應的路子,有很多是智慧入,有很多是以慈悲方便入。 [00′42″]

好!剛才這一小段,師父有強調:為什麼會有這麼多不同的次第?因為我們的根性不一樣,自然分化出這麼多的次第。師父接著說:我們要了解的,就像《法華》上面講的,不管任何情況下接觸到一點佛法,最後都成佛。我曾在師父的日記中,看到師父有抄《妙法蓮華經》,有這樣幾個偈子,它是在《妙法蓮華經卷一.方便品》說:「佛自住大乘,如其所得法,定慧力莊嚴,以此度眾生。」「乃至童子戲,聚沙為佛塔,如是諸人等,皆已成佛道。」後面還有一段寫:「於諸過去佛,在世或滅度,若有聞是法,皆已成佛道。」 [01′50″]
這一段《法華經》就說:就像一個小孩子,他為了遊戲,用沙子做了一個佛塔,這樣都會成佛道。所以,我們對於佛法稍稍接觸到那麼一點點,在其中做了一點善根的話,就會有將來成佛的因緣,或者有人以此就成佛了。你說他的次第是從什麼地方開始的呢?他就是從一個小孩做遊戲開始。像前幾天這邊下大雪,有的小朋友就用雪堆了一個佛塔。當時我就想到:啊!聚沙為塔的童子戲也可以成佛。他用那個白雪做了一個白色的塔,還很大。所以每個人在佛法裡種善根,或者從什麼樣的次第開始契入,都是不一樣的;但就像百川歸為大海,最後都會成就佛道,所以這是非常非常有希望的一條路。 [02′54″]

感恩大家一同陪伴及走这样有希望的路!
