噶千仁波切:淺談對上師的虔信 A Few Words on Guru Devotion

By His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche

有時候人們對上師產生執著,他們深愛著他們的上師, 於是他們總是必須在一起,親近他們的上師。 他們認為當他們接近上師,上師實體出現時, 他們的修持會獲益和進步 — 一但他們與上師分離,他們修持就退步,所以他們不想與上師分開。 當上師離開時,他們想『我們現在被分開了』。

那是當一個人就僅僅固著於色身,但事實上, 如果我們對上師生起愛、虔敬和信任,在心性中將永遠不離分。 最重要的是以愛與利他的心,上師有此心,若弟子也有此心, 則兩心之間沒有距離。弟子與上師的正念和利他心相同無別, 他們的心性是一樣的,如同這個世界上的電與光。 僅有稱之為光的東西可與心性相比擬,所有的心性皆然。 因此上師與弟子之間實際上是沒有距離的, 心是可以隨時非常靠近的。

相反地,若弟子對上師缺乏虔敬、信任、慈悲與愛, 就算他們片刻不離,也枉然。他們依舊爭執將無法因此產生益處, 所以在許多個案中,實體上,越遠離上師越好。

"Sometimes people have great attachment to their guru, and they love their guru very much. Then they always must be together, close with their guru. They think that when they are close to their guru, when he is physically present, then their practice is benefited, improves—but when they are separated, their practice declines. So they don’t want to separate. Then, when the guru leaves, they think, “Now we are separated.”

That is when one only fixates on the body. But actually, if we cultivate love and faith and trust in the guru, the mind will always be together. Most important is such a loving and altruistic mind. The guru has that mind, and if the disciple also has that mind there is no distance. The mindfulness and the altruism of the disciple and the guru are exactly the same. Their mind is the same, just like electricity, or light, in this world. There is only one such thing called light, just like the mind. Every mind is the same. And therefore there actually is no distance between masters and disciples. The mind can be very close at all times.

On the other hand, if the student lacks faith and trust, compassion, love for the guru, then even if they are together all the time, it will be of no benefit. They will still argue and there will be no benefit from that. So in many cases it is actually better to be, physically, more far away from the guru."

小記:

這位仁波切,我在華盛頓連著兩天離開會場時都擦肩而過。

然後有一天去附近飯店跟一位噶瑪噶舉的師姐拿大寶法王法會的票時,恰巧他在那個飯店一樓的房間做開示,跟我一起的師姐雖然也不認識他們,就把我拉我進去聽。

他的弟子都是對他敬愛的不得了,有幾個二十多歲的美國年青人,聽著聽著,眼淚就一直掉、一直掉…這位估計是非常慈悲的化身。
