仙佛慈訓: 修道不是在佛堂修道,不是在人前修道,而是在你獨處的時候,在你面對每一件事情的時候,那才是修道。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Cultivation is not done just in the temple nor done for people to see. More importantly, it is done when you are alone by yourself, and when you encounter matters or situations. That is cultivation.

仙佛慈訓: 上天堂、下地獄就在一念之間,所以君子要慎獨,要時時留心自己的思想,因為思想會成為語言,語言會成為行動,行動會成為習慣,習慣會成為性格,性格會成為命運,所以思想很重要。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Being in heaven or in hell is within the span of a thought; therefore, a noble person should always be careful of his thoughts, especially when he is alone. Thoughts lead to words, words turn into actions, actions become habits, habits build character, and character becomes fate. Therefore, thoughts are vitally important.

仙佛慈訓: 在最恰當的時候做最恰當的事,就是修道。因為我們不可能沒事找事做,總是遇事、見事、辦事。人世間的事情辦好,就是天上事情辦好。

Saints and Buddhas' merciful words: Dao cultivation is to find the most appropriate time to do the most appropriate thing, because it is not possible to find things to do when there is in fact, nothing to do. As we encounter a situation, we face it and deal with it. To do things well in this world is also to take good care of the holy matters.
