      “‘All conditioned things are impermanent’ — when one sees this with wisdom, one turns away from suffering.”

      ---Sakyamuni Buddha

      ----------------------------------------------------

      An antique mirror can use a good polish;
      It shines when the dust and dirt are removed. 
      We need to calm our wandering minds, 
      And find peace in our agitated heart.

      "One thing I teach: suffering and the end of suffering. It is just suffering and the ceasing of suffering that I proclaim." 
      - The Buddha

      In Buddhism, the primary purpose of life is to end suffering. The Buddha taught that humans suffer because we continually strive after things that do not give lasting happiness. We desperately try to hold on to things - friends, health, material things - that do not last, and this causes sorrow.

      The Buddha did not deny that there are things in life that give joy, but pointed out that none of them last and our attachment to them only causes more suffering. His teachings were focused entirely on this problem and its solution.

      Buddhism teaches the importance of recognizing the impermanence of all things and freeing oneself from attachment to them. This will lessen suffering and eventually end the cycle of rebirth. These teachings are expressed most concisely in the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path, which together form the foundation of belief for all branches of Buddhism.

      【心是最大的騙子】

       

      心是最大的騙子,別人能騙你一時,

      而它卻會騙你一輩子。

      高僧語錄:廣欽老和尚說得心臟病怎樣唸佛才能痊癒

       

      《廣欽老和尚開示錄》:“我們皆是帶業來的,故病苦多,少殺生多唸佛,就會消我們的業。人是否難逃劫數和病苦?例如患心臟病,若能專心唸佛,則心臟病會好;若心唸佛,還想去看醫生檢查心臟病,則唸佛歸唸佛,病還是不會好;若能專心持佛號,則病好了自己還不知道。”

      注:廣欽法師(1892~1986),近代高僧,貧苦孤露,宿慧萌芽,出家之後,食人之所不食,爲人之所不爲,常坐不臥,一心唸佛,潛修百苦,卒致徹悟。法師是修行的典範,一生踐履頭陀苦行,既未高建法幢、升座講經,也無生花妙筆,但他參禪唸佛、平實無奇的行持卻感動千萬衆生。

      慈悲像一盞燈,由內心發亮 ;

       

      愁恨像一把火,由內心燃燒。

       

      亮光照亮自己,更照亮別人!!

       

      恨火燒毀自己,更燒毀他人!!

       

              時時要用佛法的智慧

       

            來 點燃內心的那盞明燈
