仙佛慈訓: 為師到你們家, 你們可要心中充滿著法喜, 不要愁眉苦臉, 不要我到你們家卻被你們的臭氣薰出來, 人的臭氣是很強的。家裏要感染一些好的氣氛、好的氣息。不要讓為師一去就被薰出來。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: When Holy Teacher comes to your home, your heart should be filled with the joy of perceiving the Truth. Don't wear a sad face with knitted eyebrows; don't let me be driven out by the stench of your negativities. People's stench is very smelly. A family should be filled with a good mood and atmosphere. Don't let Holy Teacher be driven out by the stench as soon as I arrive.

仙佛慈訓: 大家常說人情債還不完, 可是如果以道情相對. 那就沒有局限了, 因為道本自然, 道本在天地之間, 擁有道心就如擁有天心一樣。天心是平等的, 是沒有利益的對待, 所以只要秉持著天心, 公心就不怕有過錯, 所謂 [有過則改, 君子不器], [有過勿憚改, 善莫大焉]

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: People often say it’s hard to repay a debt of gratitude. However, if your kindness is out of Dao, then it’s limitless. Dao originates naturally. Dao exists in Heaven, on earth, and everywhere in between. Harboring the heart of Dao is like having the heart of Heaven; the heart of Heaven is impartial and is without the duality of benefits or rewards. As long as you harbor the heart of Heaven, a selfless heart, then you need not worry about making mistakes or having faults. As the proverbs stated, “Rectify the faults if you have any, a nobleman should be versatile and without limitations,” and “There is nothing more precious for a wrongdoer than to acknowledge his fault and rectify it.”

仙佛慈訓: 今天的垃圾今天清, 今天不倒, 今天不清就容易發臭, 內心的垃圾也是這樣。 為什麼要今日事今日畢, 這個《畢》, 就是在睡覺之前不要忘記反省自己, 這才是真正的行道, 真正的修道。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: As we clean and dump out garbage daily, we need to clean the garbage in our heart and mind as well. The garbage will become smelly if we don't clean it every day. Why do we need to finish things each day? To "finish" means not to forget to self reflect, examine, and introspect daily before going to bed. Doing so, then you are truly practicing and cultivating Dao.

仙佛慈訓: 佛性的流露, 就是處處圓融、處處圓滿,、處處和諧。所謂太平, 不是世界都變得一樣, 而是大家的心都有一個共同的希望, 共同的努力。 自己的心要先清、 先平、先和, 要不斷的進步提昇, 還要有耐心, 忍之、耐之, 自然就風平浪靜。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: The revelation of Buddha Nature is to consummate, perfect and harmonize every aspect in life. So-called "world harmony" does not mean to transform everything into one likeness but for everyone to unite efforts towards striving for a common hope and perseverance. First, our heart/mind have to be pure, tranquil and calm. We have to constantly improve and elevate ourselves. We also have to be patient. As we have tolerance and endurance, naturally everything will be smooth sailing.

仙佛慈訓: 以德報怨, 莫枉費承受的恩德, 既然承受的多, 就要了愿的多, 不要去想任何麻煩的問題, 心靜一切空, 空了有何煩惱?

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Repay ingratitude with kindness (virtue). Do not let the grace you receive be in vain. The more you receive, the more vows you should fulfill. Do not ponder over troublesome problems; as your heart is calm and tranquil, everything is in the state of thusness. Where can vexation lie in the state of thusness?

仙佛慈訓: 要依附中道, 中庸之道是我們的本性。我們的本性就是中正; 你們的真心在哪裡呢? 真心無所不在, 但現在為了要讓你們明白, 所以指了一個所在, 「中正」才是我們始終不移的原則。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Follow the doctrine of the Mean, which is our true nature. Our true nature is impartial and righteous. Where is your 'true heart'? Your true heart exists everywhere, but in order to help you understand, the location is pointed out: "away from extremes, right in the middle." "Being impartial and righteous" is the unchanging principle that we should always follow.

仙佛慈訓: 你們辛苦是應該的, 是上天給你機會, 有機會才有得辛苦, 要感謝。無所求之求是大求, 無所為之為是大為。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: You're supposed to work hard, Heaven gives you the opportunity to work hard. Where there is toil, there is an opportunity, so be grateful. Not requesting (asking for or demanding) is a Great Request. A non-motivational act is a Great Act.

仙佛慈訓: 修道是時時刻刻, 是沒有中斷的。休息了, 就浪費了光陰。要對自己的生命負責, 把愛心拿出來。其實你們都是老師的化身, 是小濟公, 不要濟私, 濟私就多煩惱。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Cultivating Dao is in every moment without a break in between. It will be a waste of time to take a break. Take responsibility for your own life and show your compassionate loving heart. Actually, you are all the embodiment of Holy Teacher Ji-Gong Living Buddha, you are little Ji-Gong (serving others: ferrying all sentient beings and being impartial), don't be Ji-Si (self-serving and biased). Ji-Si will cause vexations.
