仙佛慈訓: 當真正了解自己的時候,唯一不會欺騙你的是你自己,還有仙佛常伴著你,如果心有領會的話,應該會感覺到,常常有一股力量支持著,那是自性潛在能力的發揮,那是真正跟上天靈犀相通。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: When you truly understand yourself, the only person who will not deceive you is yourself. Plus, Saints and Buddhas are always by your side. If you comprehend this, you should feel a constant strength supporting you; that's the potential power of your true nature brought into full play. That's the true communion with God.

仙佛慈訓: 如何才能明心見性?只要身體力行去修即可。但如果一直求明心見性,反會被這四個字限制,無法超脫。因此,明心見性要行無所住而生其心。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: How to achieve enlightenment? Just cultivate diligently of what you learn and preach. If you perversely seek after "enlightenment", you will be attached to this term, confined by it and unable to transcend oneself. Thus, to be enlightened, one must practice to let go of all attachments, then one's true heart will manifest.

仙佛慈訓: 順逆只是一個過程,其實不管是順、是逆,你們都會有所得,應該無所住而生其心。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Favorable or adverse circumstances are merely just a part of the process of life. In fact, you will gain or learn something from it regardless of circumstances you're in. You should uphold a constant heart without attachment, then your true heart will manifest.

仙佛慈訓: 要了生死,一定要斷煩惱,你煩惱由什麼而生?因為有貪、嗔、癡,[貪],常常貪心不足、憤憤不平,也常常生愛慾,看到什麼愛什麼,愛不得就生痛苦,所以煩惱皆從毒來,三毒就是貪、嗔、癡。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: To transcend birth and death, one must cut off vexations. What has caused these vexations? They are caused by desires, anger, and ignorance. When one is always greedy and not contented, it will make them feel resentful and often raise desires of love. We crave for things we see, and suffer when we don't receive what we yearn for. Therefore, vexations come from the three poisons: desires, anger and ignorance.

仙佛慈訓: 心是假,什麼都是假,心真即是真,心誠一切就化為光明;心不靜,就排不好的氣,所以要把這股正氣迸發出來,讓人家能夠感受得到。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: If our heart is false, everything is fake; if our heart is genuine, everything is true. Sincerity can brighten everything. When your heart is not peaceful, you'll emit bad energy. Thus, we have to let our righteousness rise so others can feel this positive energy.

仙佛慈訓: 學道要先從心做起,所謂相由心生,佛性顯現時,不會有好壞善惡,更不會被外境所影響。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Learning Dao should begin with the heart. It is said that a person's appearance is a reflection of his heart. When the Buddha Nature manifests, good or bad, kind or evil, everything becomes irrelevant. Furthermore, one will not be influenced by outside forces.
