Meditation (The Cultivation of Chan) , Seek First the Purity of Heart



I remember when I was a kid,  I liked to go to the temple to see the Bodhisattva. People often come seeking the Buddha for blessing of their own health or fortune. In fact, the reason why a person has poor health, or their career does not go smoothly, it is often because the heart is not big enough, bad interpersonal relationship, resulting in rough times.

記得我小時候很喜歡到廟裡看菩薩,經常看到人們來求菩薩保佑自己的身體健康或是發大財。其實,一個人之所以會身體不好、事業不順,常常是因為自己的心量不夠大,人際關係處不好,才會諸事不順。
