					Mantra (change)
Ariake Sea monk said that:
I discussed the topic with you today is my August summer camp in Hubei Huangmei
four ancestral temple spoken of. Time's called "catch
phrase" In fact, this name did not sum up I want to say. On Buddhism, on
the Zen, on the Buddhist culture, I do not know of you know about business school,
so I have a very specific, in my own experience in life, Chan practice of a method, a
specific method and the viewpoint. Such a perspective and approach I think would
help you more intimate knowledge and understanding of Buddhist culture,
understanding of what we call meditation.
Optimistic mouth
I cut into the point of what is it? Actually involved in daily life we use every day,
some of the important senses - our tongue, our mouth, tell me the following also have
referred to our ears. This mouth and ears, often interrelated can not be divided. You
have not noticed, the deaf are often dumb, dumb often deaf, so the mouth and ears in a
very direct correlation.
I am about to say is that our mouth. My master has four sentences summarizes the net
Hui Dashi Buddhist practice - converted to Buddhism Sangha, Qin-xiu reciting
amitabha encompasses three studies, extinction of the Six Primary Afflictions three
poisons, cleaning Shen Kouyi three industries. This is all learned Buddhism from start
to repair the results of the general, the direction of conversion is established; precepts,
all Buddhist wisdom is summed repair school beliefs. Ring, is the behavior and
language constraints; set, is effort, attention training; wisdom, is the inner cognitive
development. Greed, hatred and ignorance is human evil is innate to all sentient
beings have acquired by the evil heart defects. Body, mouth, meaning that constitute
our lives of three important sensory channels, which we used artificial life activity, the
accumulation of results, so to purify body, mouth and mind industry.
Today I want to focus on is our mouth, mouth. On the mouth of the practice of
Buddhism in this part on the ring once said, to avoid the four types of errors: raved,
flirtatious talk, gossip, evil mouth. Raved that is false, not true, then; flirtatious talk to
say vulgar words; gossip is to sow dissension in the side; evil mouth is the curse.
About the language of the garbage, summarizes these four aspects of Buddhism. This
is from the ring side, from the constraints, from the normative point of view to help us.
But I am not from this perspective, in several aspects I discussed with you, I said here,
the main mouth of the Zen, the "mantra."
A positive attitude to face current
The first practice mantra - mantra is also very wide meaning to start, then I look at it
focused, focused to a point, called no complaints. Such a practice, I started a few
years ago, I began to not complain to meditate is in me after this temple abbot. We can
imagine: you may not understand the temple, the temple has a thousand years of
history, in 1988 and the opening in front of the tower only when all the old buildings
are destroyed. Since 1992, under the auspices of our master restoration, the temple of
the software and hardware set up, also with the Sangha, and we also work to start on
many levels, including the Buddhist Sangha, Dharma community and cultural work,
charity work. In 2003, the temple restoration work completed, he returned my master,
let me control this temple. I am 39 years old 36 years old when the first control bar, a
monk of the time is not long, can be considered a large temple, the work of many
things to attend to. Give yourself time to develop a discipline, I said I would like to
practice not complain, not to anything and anyone. Experience a period of time and
found that this practice is very difficult. Perhaps you simply shut your mouth, do not
complain about that, this is not difficult, but your heart, you always do things to make
it a positive rating, this is too difficult! Our heart is to do things every day, positive
and negative, positive and negative, and it is wrong, right and wrong, beauty and
ugliness, to get bad things and so on, to make such judgments. This will determine
which we often go dead, the dead-end went inside, so there will be a time of things we
hate, hate when your heart rises, you can complain in the mouth do not say that people
really are very Bie of. So I practice for some time to discover, wow, this very simple
repair as well as the hard! You make you always look at things from a positive, always
positive attitude to face situations you encounter and the people, which is fundamental
not complain, only in the mouth not complain, this is not crucial, The crucial issue is
how do you like always from the front to enjoy and observe your life, your world,
your environment, your experience and even your own.
Complaints are obstacles for the activity of the heart
We often complain - complain about the situation so that we will encounter a simple
qualitative, thus enabling the observation and understanding of our hearts - that give
us the scene of the objects inside-depth observation and understanding, stop. - To stop,
because you have to give him determine the nature of it! Closed mind and therefore
loss of activity. What activity do? In the Zen in, it is our intention to directly get to
know the original state of things, rather than using symbols, not to use the concept of
the system, do not use, do not fall into value judgments. The concept of all systems,
value judgments, the operation symbols, this part of the work - of you! This part of
the work is precisely what we call culture. Any system of signs that occur with the
operation of the mind in Buddhism in speaking, the activities of our awareness, then
awareness campaigns, and now we simply, emotional to say that our brains are,
judging, thinking, logic, operating It is a symbol as a tool to carry out, and that
modern psychology is the same as the conclusions are with us, where all human
thought and awareness, which is corresponding with the symbol is the
"famous" - where Buddhism is called " name with
"famous names, terms, concepts, use this as a tool to operate. When we
mind this aspect of the operation carried out in time, in our secular value judgments
which we say that people are very smart, very cultural, but you often come to observe
it, this part of the active, just block the wisdom of our Mind and light. Therefore, in
human cognitive ability, there is a very interesting rule, there is a very interesting
phenomenon: today's civilization, with particular attention to that symbol,
conceptual, logical development and for the operation of that part of the more
neglected - - in our education system which, compared to concentric ignore that
intuitive, beyond the conceptual, logical, symbolic, with concentric intuitive, direct
attention to the original state of things, what kind of ability, an ability that we give it a
name Well On , called the wisdom of intuition. Both cognitive ability, it exists a law
which laws? We have a Road here long, just give me a proof, we borrow the Taoist
Tai Chi to describe this. The Tai Chi diagram is not a yin-yang fish? We borrow this -
it is also a symbol, still to be symbolic! We borrowed this symbol to describe our
beliefs intuitive relationship between intelligence and awareness activities, and its
relationship what is it? When the awareness is very active in that time, that ability to
direct knowledge of the weakened, Diagram of the two fish is not the opposite of me,
left this part of the bigger, the right side of this section is not on the smaller it? When
human activities are the part of the awareness activities, become weak, or you can say,
strictly speaking, become orderly, so human mind's ability to consciously
recognize it, they become more active. I believe that we of you - including myself, we
are of you such a level of existence of such a law.
Of course, if you finally know the truth of this Mind, you can use symbolic use of
logic in turn wrote books, the establishment of a variety of structure, establish the
framework of symbolic logic of knowledge to help you to illustrate the problem. It
was the "owner", that is the human heart of the
"master", awareness is "guest", symbolic
logic, the concept of the system is "off", is a tool, it is dominant.
But when our heart and mind, you have not done the owner, we do not intuitive
cognitive development, we are off. Those symbols, logic, do we judge the masters,
seize our nose is like that. So we complain, we hate when our hearts have made a
slave. Our hearts are all kinds of judgments, all kinds of value systems, the system
captures the concept of symbols.
In China, if a man, marriage, wedding, have a friend who wore a black dress to go to
his wedding, you said that he would feel? He will be very unhappy, right? You see,
our heart is like this, I just give this example, our hearts are to contain such a variety
of judgments, and not comfortable. Of course, the people here are not that
comfortable to wear can be black, non-compliance with rules of the game. There is no
longer a negative process. But we state it now, our hearts are uncomfortable, and is
held in check by various judgments of. So we complain about is precisely the heart of
things to do simple judgments, a result of choice, emotional performance. This
expression in itself, will prevent us from cardiac intuitive wisdom, our inner
observation, understanding, in the face of things to stop. We just satisfied with the
concept and acquired the knowledge to judge where we stalled, no further efforts to
reach the thing itself.
For example, a friend, you have a new friend, we usually first hit heard of: how this
person like? You will find out to people who know him say: This is Joe Smith, how
this kind of PW? So people know that PW: Hi! This man is a nerd! So you put
"nerd" to seize, and Oh! Finally understand, Ariake Sea is a
nerd! You will not further get to know him directly. On people, on things like this. For
example I give you tea, you do not drink, you will ask me, how that kind of tea? I said:
"Well, well, tea." Then you may be "enough, good
tea!" You forgot my drink. (Put on the cup to drink a cup of tea)
I'm sorry, I am the only one with good tea, you do not. This is our hearts
that the operation, you will to meet these simple judgments as to reach out and stop
Directly, the zero distance access to the original state of things before, the heart must
not have any preconceptions, without any preconceptions, without any grudge. On
things that do not have the first set of judgments, this state of mind we can throw that
short heart. Empty heart is an open heart, your heart is not closed. Empty heart is full
of activity of the heart, ready to accept any fact, prepared to feel. Sometimes we feel
our system is shut down, a variety of concepts and symbols, but also make our own
senses shut up, so we know something is incomplete, not complete. So how to let our
hearts are empty state, to keep active, so that emanate intuitive cognitive ability, what
do you think Zen mystery it? That is all.
If you never made an outcry against this effort to try, in life, at home, in business, you
should feel the world more open, and people and things more lively, and at the same
time, your heart more open up. With the complaint, we will not act on the positive
improvements and adjustments, I say, causing errors in the Mind, dead ends, it will
trigger a series of passive and negative reactions. In fact our lives, that is composed of
this series of reactions. In a variety of values, under the control of various habit, made
a series of reactions, and bear because it came in response to feedback information,
feedback over the results, Buddhism called "newspaper." Then,
a series of values, a series of starting point, a series of habits, is an obstacle to our
Mind - "Puzzle", confused; a series of reactions is the
"industry" - pretentious; and feelings brought about by that
artificial feedback. Constantly feel the feedback, keep it to pretentious. Sense of
feedback, is called the "fruit", fruit that is the cause and effect.
Of course, if this series of results, to bring the oppression of our lives, bringing the
limitations for bringing it to suppress and Chan Fu, the fruit is bitter, bitter is
Recommendation 4 mantra
We did not complain how to implement this kind of meditation do? If you do not
complain, do not complain to mind first. Basically is to make your heart from a series
of habits, judgments, and values - the value system may come from books, from
school, and from the community, from teachers - liberation. Sakyamuni
Buddha's teaching is this: you do not because that is your teacher, you will
not go know, said: "hears his"; you do not because that is your
friend, give up your knowledge , just like him; you do not because it is a lot of people,
most people are so that you say that is the truth; you do not because that would be in
your favor, you will not think so. This means that, from all positions, the starting point
value system, to liberate our hearts. Such a radical reduction of the mind, the time
when it is restored, naturally inside the Zen.
There is a saying: "A peaceful Wye." Is that you look at things,
a Ping Huai, equality and heart, open heart. Here without you know what, you do not
confuse a variety of judgments: this is good, this is bad, this is America, this is ugly;
but you know what it is. So you should not think like a stick without any response, as
cold as a stone that is Zen. We often use the mirror metaphor, according to what has
come to see, something it does not stay away. So in my lecture notes - we have not
blamed heart. The first I have said before, we have to understand, to understand the
direct cause of things, birth and death, that is so, so, so, so the link between this
culture of equality heart, open heart. This is the first point.
Second, should be more grateful heart. A grateful heart is a completely open mind, all
upon you for the situation, say OK, welcome. But after I spoke in front of all of you
will say: Oh, Master Yeah, you said too difficult! I would also like to work every day,
then the mouth voice out their grievances ah! Heart with a grievance it would say the
mouth, and now you let us lock up the mouth, heart, with a grievance, sick of us all
Bie, how do? So I say, then retreat to take second, we start with the mantra of our
hearts to do a positive ease. So the next few mantra I recommend to you,
here's "mantra" the word is used in its intent.
The first mantra is that we monks often speak of "distress." The
world is always flawed, always incomplete, such as your intention. When you are in
trouble, you can complain, but do you complain, the use of such complaints -
"troubled" What are the benefits that this complaint? Gentlemen,
this complaint with the philosophy of the state in which your heart is taken to a
reflection on the whole life situation, the situation of the whole life is full of defects,
you can find a perfect person and it? I am not perfect, why do I want to perfect the
world demands so many things? This is to give our existence a philosophical level of
description, this mantra, one can alleviate the pressure on our hearts, and can this
heart, brought to life the philosophical contemplation of the situation. When your
heart can be brought to life reflection of this philosophy the whole situation, when
your pressure eased. Because you know no one in this world there is no pressure, no
one is perfect, no one met the perfect thing every day, always flawed, if you can
accept the flaws, it is perfect; you face defects, that is, Perfect. Why we say
"upset" the mantra which, great! Moreover, this mantra does, it
will not cause destruction to others around them, right? Will not harm your staff
around. In fact, a kind of management, appropriate to express your dissatisfaction, and
sometimes is necessary. In the management level, you in the management of the
session, you have shocked you simmering discontent, it is problematic, because
people do not know exactly how you look, what I say to express your dissatisfaction
is needed. But the expression is non-harmful, and can bring the height of your heart to
contemplation of things, I thought, "worried" is the best mantra,
and I commend it to you. Is also an effective symbol, it makes the people around you
know: he was not happy, and he was not satisfied, and the boss are not satisfied.
The second is "ashamed." Shame is to guide your mind to
self-reflection, all your problems are matched with you, so Confucius said:
"The man was also, while Williams sick too!" What kind of
person what kind of disease . So you should not complain about disease, you must
have encountered this disease inside of you because, with your inner issues. Therefore,
the "shame" brings us to the lack of self-contemplation, taken in
self-reflection, it is not anti-people around. But if you act in harmony employees
know: Oh! He is now under pressure, he was not happy. Therefore, there is no form of
management in terms of errors. "Ashamed" and
"distress" mantra does both, there is a kind of self-healing effect.
We say "distress" from a philosophical perspective to observe
the defects of life; so "ashamed" mean? It takes you to reflect
on your own shortcomings, I also have a therapeutic effect.
The third "or." Do not use this third ah! You have to weigh your
practice, you have awakened to the level of attainment, you will use this third. The
third is what? No matter what, you say: "Great!"
This is too hard! If someone stole your wallet, you say "nice" to
see the back of the thief: "Let us go!" Then
"or" does this mantra, which is taken to cause your heart, and
wisdom knowledge of all things there are not accidental, has its relevance. The world
has been that way, because there is so such a fate, there will be retribution, no errors,
everything without error. Live one day, God is just, dharmas are equal. So you said
there are problems that you have a problem. You have problems with eyes to see life,
you see the problem here; you see the world and admire the view, you say:
"Fortunately,           Fine!"          Or:         "worth
mentioning!" So I think this mantra also has very good therapeutic effect.
When you encounter anything Nenggen their say: "Hey! Fine!"
- Such as your business is successful, you say: "Fine!" Now the
challenge is, you say: " Fine! "you abandoned your wife, you
said:" Fine! "- any time you can observe such a mind to their
In fact, there is a fourth mantra, more than for my own use, so that trick it! What? -
"Ignore him!" You gentlemen may be irrelevant, if often let my
environment I use this, because there is always a lot to shake you, there are many
things that it should be misunderstanding you, there are many things to barriers to you.
If you want to do some work, there are many equally valuable work to attract and
spread your attention, so this time I like to say: "no matter, ignore
him!" This "ignore him" helped me a favor . It let me
not pay attention to how other people talk me how to see me, and how barriers to me.
It also helped me to focus my energy and attention to do the things I persist in doing,
ignore him, others I do not care. So your way out, people would say: "Oh!
Well, yes." At that time you still say: "ignore him." If
people say: "Oh, good, Well! "Then you stop,"
ignore him ", and said:" You know it, this time you ... ...
"finished! Have you finished, you will fail, you should always
"ignore him." Therefore, the "ignore him"
is also a good mantra, one with an orientation - the same as satellite positioning,
positioning in the value of life on the road with the contemplation of the formulas -
"ignore him."
This is what I share with you today, the four mantra, a practice essentials - no
complaints and no complaints mind. When you do, you will become a large amount of
hearts, you will become flexible, your mind will become compassion, mercy is out of
patience in training, is to accept the reality of suffering trained of.
(According to September 15, 2007 in Hebei Province Institute of Buddhism in the
auditorium of the Central European Business School teachers and students of
discovery order)
