总持之门

“其人心意则清净,普入经卷度无极,悉解众人之音声,得总持时乃如是。
观知群萠心所行,善恶所念及中间,分别本性所造兴,则为说法随所应。
悉了因缘之报应,令不睹常及无常,皆以弃捐堕边际,分别总持随顺化。
明解文字之方便,知无央数之音响,晓了义理微妙好,得总持者乃如是。
逮得天眼无垢污,天耳清净亦如是,无量智慧知众行,念亿千劫去来事。
获四神足亦如是,至无量国须臾顷,供无数亿诸导师,闻所讲法则总持。
若干亿魔至百千,不能睹知境界行,清净之人无尘埃,讲说经法无数千。
譬如莲华无著水,不猗世法亦如是,常以解脱诸有无,等心一切如虚空。
持最色相而勇猛,众人观仰无厌足,进止安详行无缺,愍伤群萠故游世。
天帝释梵及护世,皆以恭敬稽首礼,其心不以憍慢说,得总持时亦如是。
口言柔软如梵音,为众人说可其心,温润流利言得时,所可教化无所覆。
在于众中无所畏,为师子吼妙无难,降伏一切众粗人,得净总持为如是。
其谀谄人难调化,兴于憍傲而自大,闻彼圣明所说法,即弃贡高稽首礼。
入于本净寂法界,以达义归解诸法,以故所说无穷已,分别文字知法律。
人之本性法界净,晓众生净亦如是,解知本无人本无,所说经法无挂碍。
所尽无尽不可知,无尽之事无能尽,觉了知是趣寂寞,则说无住亿经卷。
斯诸文字不处身,亦不在意不住心,文字本性空寂寞,譬如山中呼声响。
计总持者不著字,无音无言无说声,以知文字所趣然,假使所说无挂碍。
无意无想亦无心,设有所说无所念,又复解知去法慧,讲顺说经随所应。
以入分别四句义,晓了义理明识法,究畅音声顺所听,故讲无著不可量。
玩习本原承其慧,故说深要若干法,所解之慧了逆顺,有趣顶法度无极。
方便所有诸怯弱,以用救摄诸卒暴,明识所作为解说,得总持者乃如是。
其身口意皆已寂,分别诸慧不著古,所言无厌除瞋恨,得住总持为勇猛。
其所总持心执御,意之所入住法慧,其有闻者未曾忘,顺如听采等经典。
其总持义法不乱,计法行之无所入,以法等故曰平等,如应平等顺清净。”

Sentient beings/Insentient beings

Sentient beings [有情]— all inhabitants of the three realms of samsara who possess a mind and transmigrate within the six classes of beings. Animate things, such as plants, which do not have a mind, are not ‘sentient’.

Insentient beings [非有情]: Those beings or objects that have no emotions or consciousness, such as trees and stones. The term is contrasted with sentient beings, those forms of life that possess senses, emotions, or consciousness. Buddhism classifies all existences into two categories: sentient and insentient.

So…

Do plants feel pain? Short answer: no.
Plants have no brain or central nervous system, which means they can’t feel anything.
Humans and animals perceive pain through sensory nerve cells. These are the same type of cells that transmit information from our senses, allowing us to smell, see, hear, taste, and touch. These cells are part of what’s called the peripheral nervous system, which includes all the body’s nerves except those in the spinal cord and brain.
Peripheral nerve cells form a network that carries messages from the skin, muscles, and organs to the spinal cord and brain. The brain responds by sending back messages to the pain site that promote the healing process.
So what does all this have to do with plants? Well, biologists know that neural systems like ours and those of other animals (yes, fish included) are one way to process information—but not the only way. Even though plants don’t have nervous systems, they can respond to stimuli. For example, when an aphid attacks a leaf, this sends an electrical signal that goes from leaf to leaf to tell the plant to start protecting itself. But it’s important to note that responding to damage does not mean the plant is in pain.
Unlike us and other animals, plants do not have nociceptors, the specific types of receptors that are programmed to respond to pain. They also, of course, don’t have brains, so they lack the machinery necessary to turn those stimuli into an actual experience. This is why plants are incapable of feeling pain.
But you know who does feel pain? Cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, fish, lobsters, and all the other living, breathing, feeling animals humans eat. That’s right, humans and many other animals—especially mammals and other vertebrates—all developed similar central nervous system features before we went down different evolutionary paths. This means that not only do animals feel pain, but all farmed animals killed for food likely feel it in similar ways as we do.
So lets go Veg!
