Vesak day

Vesak is one of the most important Buddhist festivals. It is also known as Wesak or Buddha Day.

It is a celebration of Buddha’s birthday and, for some Buddhists, marks his enlightenment (when he discovered life’s meaning). 

It is also a time to reflect on his teachings and what it means to be Buddhist.

Buddhism, like most of the great religions of the world, is divided into a number of different traditions. However, most traditions share a common set of fundamental beliefs.
One central belief of Buddhism is often referred to as reincarnation — the concept that people are reborn after dying. In fact, most individuals go through many cycles of birth, living, death and rebirth. A practicing Buddhist differentiates between the concepts of rebirth and reincarnation.
In reincarnation, the individual may recur repeatedly. In rebirth, a person does not necessarily return to Earth as the same entity ever again. He compares it to a leaf growing on a tree. When the withering leaf falls off, a new leaf will eventually replace it. It is similar to the old leaf, but it is not identical to the original leaf.
Buddhism is a philosophy of life expounded by Gautama Buddha (“Buddha” means “enlightened one”), who lived and taught in northern India in the 6th century B.C. The Buddha was not a god and the philosophy of Buddhism does not entail any theistic world view. The teachings of the Buddha are aimed solely at liberating sentient beings from suffering.


The Basic Teachings of Buddha which are core to Buddhism are:
• The Three Universal Truths;
• The Four Noble Truths; and
• The Noble Eightfold Path.

THE THREE UNIVERSAL TRUTHS

  1. Nothing is lost in the universe
  2. 2. Everything Changes
  3. The Law of Cause and Effect

In Buddhism, the law of karma, says “for every event that occurs, there will follow another event whose existence was caused by the first, and this second event will be pleasant or unpleasant according as its cause was skillful or unskillful.” Therefore, the law of Karma teaches that the responsibility for unskillful actions is borne by the person who commits them.

After his enlightenment, the Buddha went to the Deer Park near the holy city of Benares and shared his new understanding with five holy men. They understood immediately and became his disciples. This marked the beginning of the Buddhist community. For the next forty-five years, the Buddha and his disciples went from place to place in India spreading the Dharma, his teachings. Their compassion knew no bounds; they helped everyone along the way, beggars, kings and slave girls. At night, they would sleep where they were; when hungry they would ask for a little food.
Wherever the Buddha went, he won the hearts of the people because he dealt with their true feelings. He advised them not to accept his words on blind faith, but to decide for themselves whether his teachings are right or wrong, then follow them. He encouraged everyone to have compassion for each other and develop their own virtue: “You should do your own work, for I can teach only the way.”

Once, the Buddha and his disciple Ananda visited a monastery where a monk was suffering from a contagious disease. The poor man lay in a mess with no one looking after him. The Buddha himself washed the sick monk and placed him on a new bed. Afterwards, he admonished the other monks: “Monks, you have neither mother nor father to look after you. If you do not look after each other, who will look after you? Whoever serves the sick and suffering, serves me.”
After many such cycles, if a person releases their attachment to desire and the self, they can attain Nirvana. This is a state of liberation and freedom from suffering.

The three trainings or practices
These three consist of:

  1. Sila: Virtue, good conduct, morality. This is based on two fundamental principles: The principle of equality: that all living entities are equal. The principle of reciprocity: This is the “Golden Rule” in Christianity – to do unto others as you would wish them to do unto you. It is found in all major religions.
  2. Samadhi: Concentration, meditation, mental development. Developing one’s mind is the path to wisdom which, in turn, leads to personal freedom. Mental development also strengthens and controls our mind; this helps us maintain good conduct.
  3. Prajna: Discernment, insight, wisdom, enlightenment. This is the real heart of Buddhism. Wisdom will emerge if your mind is pure and calm.

The first two paths listed in the Eightfold Path, described below, refer to discernment; the last three belong to concentration; the middle three are related to virtue.

THE FOUR NOBLE TRUTHS
The Buddha’s Four Noble Truths explore human suffering. They may be described (somewhat simplistically) as:

  1. Dukkha: Suffering exists: Life is suffering. Suffering is real and almost universal. Suffering has many causes: loss, sickness, pain, failure, and the impermanence of pleasure.
  2. Samudaya: There is a cause of suffering. Suffering is due to attachment. It is the desire to have and control things. It can take many forms: craving of sensual pleasures; the desire for fame; the desire to avoid unpleasant sensations, like fear, anger or jealousy.
  3. Nirodha: There is an end to suffering. Attachment can be overcome. Suffering ceases with the final liberation of Nirvana (Nibbana). The mind experiences complete freedom, liberation and non-attachment. It lets go of any desire or craving.
  4. Magga: In order to end suffering, you must follow the Eightfold Path. There is a path for accomplishing this.

The five precepts
These are rules to live by. They are somewhat analogous to the second half of the Ten Commandments in Judaism and Christianity — that part of the Decalogue which describes behaviors to avoid. However, they are recommendations, not commandments. Believers are expected to use their own intelligence in deciding exactly how to apply these rules:

  1. Do not kill. This is sometimes translated as no harming or an absence of violence.
  2. Do not steal. This is generally interpreted as including the avoidance of fraud and economic
    exploitation.
  3. Do not lie. This is sometimes interpreted as including name calling, gossip etc.
  4. Do not misuse sex. For monks and nuns, this means any departure from complete celibacy. For the laity, adultery is forbidden, along with any sexual harassment or exploitation, including that within marriage. The Buddha did not discuss consensual premarital sex within a committed relationship, thus, Buddhist traditions differ on this. Most Buddhists, probably influenced by their local cultures, condemn same-sex sexual activity regardless of the nature of the relationship between the people involved.
  5. Do not consume alcohol or other drugs. The main concern here is that intoxicants cloud the mind. Some have included as a drug other methods of divorcing ourselves from reality — e.g. movies, television, and the Internet.

THE EIGHTFOLD PATH

The Buddha’s Eightfold Path consists of:
Panna: Discernment, wisdom:

  1. Samma ditthi: Right Understanding of the Four Noble Truths. Right View is the true
    understanding of the four noble truths.
  2. Samma sankappa: Right thinking; following the right path in life. Right Aspiration is the true desire to free oneself from attachment, ignorance, and hatefulness.
    These two are referred to as Prajna, or Wisdom.
    Sila: Virtue, morality:
  3. Samma vaca: Right speech: No lying, criticism, condemning, gossip, harsh language. Right Speech involves abstaining from lying, gossiping, or hurtful talk.
  4. Samma kammanta Right conduct or Right Action involves abstaining from hurtful behaviors, such as killing, stealing, and careless sex. These are called the Five Precepts.
  5. Samma ajiva: Right livelihood: Support yourself without harming others. Right Livelihood means making your living in such a way as to avoid dishonesty and hurting others, including animals.
    These three are referred to as Shila, or Morality.
    Samadhi: Concentration, meditation:
  6. Samma vayama: Right Effort: Promote good thoughts; conquer evil thoughts. Right Effort is a matter of exerting oneself in regards to the content of one’s mind: Bad qualities should be abandoned and prevented from arising again. Good qualities should be enacted and nurtured.
  7. Samma sati: Right Mindfulness: Become aware of your body, mind and feelings. Right Mindfulness is the focusing of one’s attention on one’s body, feelings, thoughts, and consciousness in such a way as to overcome craving, hatred, and ignorance.
  8. Samma samadhi: Right Concentration: Meditate to achieve a higher state of consciousness. Right Concentration is meditating in such a way as to progressively realize a true understanding of imperfection, impermanence, and non-separateness

妈祖(天上圣母)

WeChat Image_20200415201329
传说中的妈祖是一个很美丽又善良的女神,但是并不知道妈祖确切的是什么神明,而且在传说里面也似乎没有准确的指定妈祖是什么神。那么妈祖是什么意思,为什么要叫做妈祖呢?让我们一起到妈祖文化看看吧!

妈祖是人们对“海上女神”的褒称。妈祖姓林名默。关于她的生平,说法不一,一曰唐天宝年间生人,另说生于宋建隆年间,但有一点确定无疑:妈祖是人,而且是一位普通的渔家姑娘。据史料较多的宋代记载,林默出生在福建省莆田市湄洲湾畔一个美丽的小渔村——贤良港。

林姓是福建望族之一。闽林始祖林禄,在晋永嘉元年(307)以黄门侍郎琅琊王司马睿渡江镇建业(今南京市)。妈祖的高祖林圉,五代时仕闽。曾祖林保吉,仕后周,显德元年(954)任统军兵马使,鉴于天下纷乱,弃官归隐。祖父名孚,官福建总管。妈祖的父亲名林愿(一说名惟悫),宋初官都巡检,母亲王氏,生一男(名洪毅)六女。妈祖为家中之小女。

妈祖诞生于宋建隆元年(960)三月二十三日。生前,父母已有五女,切盼再生一男,因而朝夕焚香祝天,祈求早赐麟儿,然终胎又是一女婴,父母大失所望。在她即要降生之傍晚,邻里乡亲见流星化为一道红光从西北天空射来,晶莹夺目,映得岛屿上之岩石红光四射,父母察觉此婴必非等闲之女,遂关怀备至,疼爱有加。因其出生至弥月间均不啼哭,故取名林默。

林默幼时聪明颖悟,胜于姐妹,八岁入塾师读书,勤学强记且过目成诵。她年小志弘,不满封建婚姻,立志不嫁。自小钻研医道,妙手回春,教人防疫消灾。她性情和顺、热情,排难解纷,行善济世,均乐事为。

传说林默二十八岁时,一次在海上搭救遇险船只不幸被桅杆击中头部,落水身亡,后人缘以“人行善事,死后为神”,视她升天为神,专门到海上抢险助人去了。此后妈祖经常显灵,乡亲亦时常见她于山岩水洞之旁,或盘坐彩云雾霭之间,或朱衣飞翔海上,常示梦显圣,救人急难,嗣后,乡里之人便在湄峰建起祠庙,虔诚敬奉,后人前来朝觐祭祀者络绎不绝。

妈祖一生奔波海上,救急扶危,济险拯溺,护国庇民,福佑群生,航海人敬之若神。死后,她仍以行善济世为已任,救逢凶遇难于众,人们最终将妈祖奉为名副其实的“海上女神”。

妈祖平生勇敢善良,聪明颖悟,普渡众生,济世利人,死后,人们对她的仰慕和爱戴较之生前有过之而无不及,为此,有关妈祖的传说愈演愈众,愈演愈神。据《天后志》记载的有十五则,据《天妃显圣录》记载的有十六则。它们分别是:莱屿长青,祷雨济民,挂席泛搓,化草救商,降伏二神,解除水患,救父寻兄,恳请治病,收伏二怪,窥井得符,妈祖诞降,湄屿飞升,驱除怪风,铁马渡江,收伏晏公,收高里鬼。

妈祖在维护家庭和睦、社会融合以及弘扬大爱精神等方面发挥独特作用,并以此来践行妈祖精神,与所在国居民友好相处,共创新家园。
