Harvesting Peace in the Chinese Language – HIGHLIGHT

Yeachin Tsai has kindly translated Sakyong Mipham’s 2010 Harvest of Peace letter into Chinese. 2010年「和平的秋收」薩姜米龐仁波切關中信函 祈願文 在心的宇宙一切皆為可能; 在心的空隙一切皆盡涵容; 在珍貴的身體內,光芒四射的能量搏動; 在世界靈動變化的的巧合裡,吉祥永遠準備就緒。這是多傑札都(創巴仁波切)的贈禮。讓我們這些無愧的香巴拉人每天早上以一顆廣袤的心智、難以稱量的大心、以及一個充滿意向的身體覺醒。讓我們創造一個具有和平與尊嚴、並以吉祥嚴飾的世界。 聆聽香巴拉總裁理查雷奧克(Richard Reoch)的開示,與馬克威利(Mark Whaley)閱讀薩姜的書信全文: 信函內容如下: 我希望你們都有一個深刻美好的「和平的秋收」日。和平是香巴拉活動的基石。正如偉大的聖雄甘地所說:「你想見到世界改變,必須自己成為那改變。」在這個唯物主義氾濫的年代,我們香巴拉人必得欣然接受此一箴言。因為當此充斥無厭的自我滿足之時、我們的手指總是預備好去指責別人的錯誤。因此經由這純粹的英勇行徑,我們必須振奮起信心,確認我們的本初善 (basic goodness)。 continue
