仙佛慈訓: 體驗生活。禪玄不玄?禪之意就是單心,就是最單簡單的心。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Observe, experience, and learn from life.  Is 'Zen' too profound to understand? The Chinese character "Zen" is a combination of two characters "manifest" and "simple/single." which means to manifest the simplest heart.

仙佛慈訓: 每個人都知道人間是苦海,既然是苦海,就不要一直吐苦水,一直吐苦水,這個苦海是不是變得更壞?每個人都要有樂觀的心,進取的心,不要將這個苦海在每一個佛堂裡製造出來,要將這人間變為淨土,要讓你們的家變成快樂天堂。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Everyone knows that the world is a bitter sea; since it's a bitter sea, then don't spew anymore of your bitterness. If you keep spewing your bitterness, won't this bitter sea become worse? Everyone should be optimistic and aspiring. Don't concoct a bitter sea in every temple. You should turn this earthly world into a land of purity, and let your home become a joyful paradise.

仙佛慈訓: 人有想不開和想來想去都不通的時候,那時候就放下吧!既然想不通了,多想也沒有用。修道是保持初發心,保持天真的心、純真的心,對每一個人都不要有分別心。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: There are times when a person takes things too harshly; and there are times when one cannot figure something out even after contemplating and pondering on it for a long time. At that time, just let go! Since one cannot make sense of it, any more effort will still be in vain. Dao cultivation is to preserve one's original heart, maintain an innocent and pure heart, and treat everyone without discrimination.

仙佛慈訓:了解自己,就應該誠於中,形於外,別人看你就是一尊佛,那現在這個世界就是天堂了。也因為你的心境,環境才會營造未來的天堂,不用去西方找佛陀,也不用去西方找琉璃世界。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: To understand oneself (to be aware of one's true self), your outer behavior should manifest your inner sincerity. In this case, people will see you as a Buddha and at that moment, the world will become a paradise. Due to your state of mind, the surroundings can create a paradise of the future. There is no need to seek Buddha nor the Land of Pure Crystal in the Western (paradise).

仙佛慈訓: 自私之心不可有。放眼望去盡是寬廣,莫要讓狹隘障住自己。多聽、多想、多做,不要太多話。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Do not harbor a selfish heart. It is full of vast and limitless sights as you broaden your horizon. Do not let a narrow mind hinder yourself. Listen, contemplate and perform more, do not talk too much.

仙佛慈訓: 隨緣才能自在。希望你們保有的是那一份對自己的心,希望你們不要自我傷害,把愛散播到每一個角落,給需要的人,讓你們對眾生的愛永無止盡。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Truly being free and unrestrained is when one follows the flow of his/her affinity. Hope you can preserve that faithful heart and don't hurt yourself. Spread love to every corner of this world, to the ones who are in need. Let your love for all sentient beings be endless.

仙佛慈訓:人的本份就是要對自己負責,你做的每一件事件都會攸關眾生、攸關自己以及周邊的人。今天你進了佛門,學習的是道,道在那裡?道在日常生活之中,那麼自己就要以身示道,自己去實行,那才有價值。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Everyone's duty is to be responsible to oneself. Everything you do has an effect on all the sentient beings, yourself, and everyone around you. Today, you are here in the temple to learn Dao; where is Dao? Dao is in your daily life. You have to set an example of Dao and act in accordance with Dao, only then does it (Dao) have value.

仙佛慈訓:遇到每一個瓶頭,都是成長的時候。不要每天都只看到表面的自己而已,修道要深入,做人也要深入,做人不能只做表面,這樣別人也會以表面來對你們。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Every bottleneck you encounter is an ideal time for growth. Do not just pay attention to one's superficial self everyday. In cultivation, one needs to penetrate deeper. When conducting oneself (or dealing with others), one also needs to be in-depth and cannot just take care of the facade. Otherwise, people will also treat you superficially.
