Discussion Topics

  1. 我們若是可以從小我變成大我,從我自己個人,我能同體大悲;從我自己個人,我也可以體會這個家庭。所以知道我要負起責任,從我的家庭擴大到整個社區,社區平安我的家庭才能平安;從社區能擴大到整個社會,整個社會能祥和、無災難,這才是我們整個社會人群的幸福,才是我們個人的平安

    We should transform the self into a Greater Self. Each of us can have All-embracing Compassion by first taking care of our family responsibilities, and then expanding our sense of responsibility from our family to the entire community. A family is safe when the community is peaceful. Then we can expand it further, to society. If society is harmonious and free of calamity, then all of us in this society are blessed and can live in peace.   PLEASE SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS:  Is this why Master created Tzu Chi?  Is our goal this great and all encompassing?

  2. 各位,法就是這麼簡單,要不然從每一個我再去分析,時間就很長了。所以請大家用簡單、純真、明瞭的心去體會這些法。這些本來是很複雜的法,但是用單純的心,在日常生活中自我警惕,無論是在聲色,無論是天地之間,或是地水火風空,真的它如果順調,就平安了

    Everyone, the Dharma is simple if you are mindful. Otherwise, it would take a very long time to analyze each "self". Everyone, please use a mind of simplicity, purity and clarity to experience this complex Dharma. We should be vigilant in or daily life. Whether sound or form, earth, water, fire, wind or space, if they are all in harmony, there is peace.  Discussion:  How can we simplify our life to understand the Dharma?  How do the Ten Precepts and our work in Tzu Chi simplify our lives so that we can understand deeper and greater truths about ourselves?
