Recalling the kindness of H.H. Jigme Phuntsok

忆念法王如意宝的恩德

Not able to meet you directly is one of the most regrettable things in my life.

没有直接见到您是我这一生最遗憾的其中一件事,

However, making contact with the teachings you left for us as well as your heirs have comforted me somewhat.

但能够遇到你留下的教言和你的心子,给了我一些安慰。

Before you left, you said: Neither should we forsake our own path, nor should we cause disturbances to others.

您临走前说:莫舍己道,勿扰他心

What a wonderful testament you have left for us!

这是多么殊胜的遗教!

Though, at first glance, this statement seems quite simple, it is extraordinarily profound.

这乍看之下很简单,但又是有着很不平凡深奥的意义。

By recalling and contemplating them for an extended period of time, deeply:

通过长期深入去思维和忆念它之后:

Now, when we meditate and practice renunciation wholeheartedly,

现在,当我们一心一意的观修和行持出离心,

If someone tell us that the mundane responsibilities and the like are more important than our meditation or our retreat to a serene valley,

如果有人说世间的的责任等比我们的禅修或者寂静山沟更加有意义时,

We will continue to sit, steadfastly meditating on our meditation cushion or stay unshakably at the serene valley to treasure this precious human rebirth for a purpose that others might not understand.

我们将继续如树的安住在坐垫上,安住在寂静的山沟里,珍惜这他人不理解的暇满人身。

However, we woill sincerely continue to pay respect for their idea of loving and caring for their family and the like and pray that one day through their worldly merits, may they realise the true meaning of this precious human rebirth, too.

然而,我们也会继续真诚地尊重他人对家人的关爱等,然后祈祷着有一天,通过这世俗的功德,他们也能体验到暇满人身的意义。

Never cause disturbances to others, this is your testament, how harmonious it is!

勿扰他心,这是您的遗教,您是多么的圆融!

Similarly if due to our circumstances, we have to take care of our family and hence only able to practice renunciation in a city, we will rejoice those that stay in the valley but we will also continue to have strong faith with our own path as a city yogi or yogini. After all, all roads lead to Rome.

同样的,如果因缘已定,我们需要照顾家人,只能在城市里修持出离心,我们也一样会随喜那些安住在寂静山沟里的行者,但我们会以强烈的信心继续着城市瑜伽士的生活。毕竟条条大路通罗马。

Never forsake our own path, this is your testament, how inspiring it is!

莫舍己道,这是您的遗教,这是您给的鼓舞!

Furthermore, now, when we meditate on Bodhicitta,

而且,现在,当我们观修菩提心时,

If someone say that it is better to go out to do some charity than sitting at home,

如果有人说与其禅修不如出去做些慈善吧,

We will continue to sit, steadfastly meditating on our meditation cushion.

我们会继续如树安住在坐垫上。

However, we will also continue to rejoice those that like to do charity,

然而,我们也会随喜那些喜欢做慈善的人,

And we wish and pray that through their merits from charity, one day, they will enter into the path of bodhisattvas to practice this mind of enlightenment.

和祈愿通过他们的慈善功德,有一天,他们将步入菩萨道,修持这觉心。

Never cause disturbances to others, this is your testament, how harmonious it is!

勿扰他心,这是你的遗教,你是多么的圆融!

Similarly when there are charities that can help others greatly, and that we have all the necessary circumstances to carry them out, if we do it but facing some obstacles, inspired by your words, we will try our best to keep this good cause going.

同样的,当可以大幅的帮助到众生,而且因缘和合,如果我们行持它时遇到障碍,我们也会尝试继续行持这善法,这都是因您不舍己道的启发!

Again, when we meditate on wisdom of emptiness,

再者,当我们观修空性慧时,

If someone say that it is better to accumulate some conventional merits than doing nothing,

若有人说与其观空性不如积累一些世俗资量吧,

We will continue to sit, steadfastly on our meditation cushion.

我们会继续如树安住在坐垫上。

However, we will continue to rejoice those that like to accumulate conventional merits, and we will even do our best to do the same during our post meditation and pray that through their accumulation of merits, one day may they also feel joyful when encountering Madhyamaka or prajnaparamita.

然而,对于喜爱积累世俗资量者,我们也会随喜,甚至在座下时自己也会尽很大的努力去积累资量和为他们祈愿,希望通过这世俗资量,他们有一天会对中观和般若产生希求心和欢喜心。

This goes without saying, stay steadfastly with our own path, this is your supreme testament!

如树安住在自己的道上,无需说,这是你的殊胜遗教!
