Sales talk?
If you believe it so! :)



      所以靜香上師有一次跟我說:「師尊,人家供養你的禮物、錢,你有沒有收到?」
    Therefore, once when VM Jing-xiang said to me: Shizun, others offering of gifts and money to you, younever received?

    我跟她說我從來不管,她說:「奇怪!你怎麼不管,這是人家供養你的。」
    I said to her that I have never care, she said: Funny! Why don't you care, these are offerings from others meant for you.

    我說:「這些錢縱然我沒有花,也有人去花。」
    I said: These money although I didn't spend, also have people go spend.

    不知道她聽得懂不懂?
    I don't whether she understand these or not?

    我這一句話講的就是平等。
    This statement is talking about Equality.

    一般人認為這個是我的啊,怎麼可以我的錢讓別人花呢?
    Most people think that this is mine, how can let others spend my money?

    但是在師尊的眼中,錢我不花,還是有別人花,是同等的價值。
    But in Shizun's eyes, money that I don't spend, will have others to spend, is of same value.

    不要分我的你的,只要這些錢是發心供養就可以了!
    Do not differentiate between you and me, as long as this money are offered with 
    发心: bodhicitta-samutpada, that is enough!
    ..............

    當你不思善不思惡的時候,你會發覺眾生很可愛,看他們的執著、看他們的善惡、看他們的分別心、看他的喜、怒、哀、樂、哭、笑、跳,你就覺得很好玩。

    把他們當成好玩就好了,然後慢慢引導他們去掉這個執著、煩惱、痛苦,給他們快樂。



      This is Shizun's statement for Wisdom of Equality.

      Summary: When you do not think of Good or Evil, you will discover that Sentient Beings are very lovable, watching their Fixation, their Good & Evil, their mindset of differentiation/segregation, their various emotions and actions like joy anger sorrow happiness crying jumping; you will feel it is Fun Play.


      [當你不思善不思惡的時候,你會發覺眾生很可愛,看他們的執著、看他們的善惡、看他們的分別心、看他的喜、怒、哀、樂、哭、笑、跳,你就覺得很好玩。

      Treating them as Fun Play, then slowly guide them to Drop Fixation, Worries, Suffering, Pain and give them Happiness.
      把他們當成好玩就好了,然後慢慢引導他們去掉這個執著、煩惱、痛苦,給他們快樂。
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The article Wisdom of Equality was written by GM Lu in 1996 - 8 -10!
I use it for my Morning lesson on Saturday, October 20, 2012 06:58!
And now, 2017 Jan, GM 's article has almost 21 years of existence! 

Haha!

And do you understand what GM Lu meant by: 
    [These money although I didn't spend, also have people go spend.]?

    Think Deeply! 
    And I shared this article in this blog on 20 October 2012, more than 4 years!
    Anyone is aware that GM taught me to Observe how lovable sentient beings go about their daily routines creating suffering for themselves?
    Also I wrote into the ilovegm forum that those allegedly for or against GM Lu, are sentient beings that I am on standby to succour when affinity arises!
    These beings are One & the Same! 

    Haha!
    I have been watching you play all these whiles! 
    You can take your time and continue to languish in Sentient Mud or grab GM Lu's hand that is always extended out to help you, if you but see it!

    Me? O! I am a by-stander and only move when GM Lu instructs! 

    Look through all the FUN I had watching you and sharing my Observations too!

Dari arsip percakapan:

[--- A: oh the mister who sang the praise to guru padmakara

B: 7 lotuses bloom - GM was singing this song
Actually it means our 7 chakras opening or opened
[七朵莲花开 -意味着 ~7轮打开]
(Tujuh kuntum bunga teratai – yang dinyanyikan oleh Mahaguru
Sebenarnya adalah 7 chakra dalam diri kita yang terbuka)
A: 🌺

B: hahaha! How many realised this pointer?
(Ada berapa banyak orang yang menyadari petunjuk ini?)
哈哈哈!有多少悟到这一点?---]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Di dalam blog ini, aku pernah menuliskan penglihatanku mengenai Mahaguru Lu yang berjalan memasuki seorang murid yang duduk di hadapanku, saat kami sedang bersantai minum teh!
Skenario yang sama berulang beberapa kali dan kuberitahukan kepada murid tersebut bahwa ia bisa melakukan visualisasi ini saat menjapa mantra Guru.
Sang Yidam berjalan ke arahnya dan memasukinya!

Melihat Yidam dan Berbicara kepada Yidam!
看见本尊 & 与本尊交谈!

騙很大 Great Cheat



English Translation inserted by Lotuschef.
Readers should do their own translation from GM Lu's Version, for a version you can best understand!
Om Guru Lian Sheng Siddhi Hom
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

蓮生活佛 > 師尊文集 > 255_夢中的翅膀 > 騙很大


那是我在台灣的時候──
「鈴……。」,家裡電話響了,我拿起話筒。
對方說:
「你的孫子在我手上,……。」對方傳來孩子的哭聲。
我問:
「我的孫子講什麼話?」
對方說:
「騙肖也,當然是台灣話!」
我一聽。
「卡」的一聲,把電話掛了。
(我的孫子是美國出生,只會說英文)
* The above happened when GM was in Taiwan.
He received a call telling him that they has his grandchild in hand, and....
GM asked them what language my grandchild speaks, and they answered what else but Taiwanese!
Its a hoax, as GM's grandchild is in America and speaks only English.
又:
「鈴……。」
對方說:
「你的電話費未繳,我們將會切斷你的電話。」
「查詢請按X號,繳費請按X號,……。」
我轉頭問師母:
「我們電話費沒繳?」
師母說:
「我們的費用,全是銀行自動扣款,沒有未繳,一定是詐騙集團。」
我「卡」的一聲,又把電話掛了。
*Above is another call about non-payment of phone bills and threatening to disconnect usage. 
Upon asking shimu, GM found out that all bills are automatically deducted from bank account as arranged.
Another Fraud Organisation!

又:
「鈴……。」
對方說:
「你抽獎,抽中一部汽車。」
哇!我好高興!果然我也會抽中大獎。
對方說:
「車子目前在海關,要扣稅,約XX錢,另運送費XX錢。你還是賺很多,請先匯款,我們將在星期五早上九點送達。」
我一時冷靜,我問:
「我在那裡抽的獎?」
對方答:
「XX百貨。」
我想,我沒有去過XX百貨啊!
「卡」的一聲,電話掛了!
*The above said that GM won a car and have to pay taxes and transportation to have it cleared from customs. Pay these in advance by remittance then they will deliver the car.
Upon questioning, this alleged prize is from a lucky draw by XX store, but GM never visit this store before!
Another hoax!

哇!真的,騙很大!
台灣的詐騙集團真多,被騙的也有很多高級知識份子。
如教授。
如法官。
如政府高官。
藝人等。……
現在,台灣是詐騙王國,已名聞全世界,非洲肯亞、馬來西亞、印尼,集體出國詐騙。
我想給台灣頒獎,獎名:
「騙很大獎!」

詩:Poem:
詩名「要修行」。Title: Must Cultivate
想想無常變化 Think Think Changes of Impermanence
想想空 Think Think Void
人間 Human Realm
誰真的千壽 Who truly lives a thousand years

想想自己名譽 Think Think of own's reputation
想想因緣果報 Think Think Karmic Return/Retribution
你修 You cultivate
我修 I cultivate
真的後悔罪過 Truly remorseful of pass wrongs/sins

懺悔後 After repenting
如此才不會墮 This way then won't fall (Fall - means fall into bad or evil paths)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GM Lu is saying that everywhere there are these Fraudulent organisation out to cheat!
AND, HIS Prescription is CULTIVATE!

Hahaha!

Email:
From GM's speech on 7 Jan 2017
GM talks about Fixation on marriage!
Bcos ppl said GM 30 yrs old n still unmarried, there must be something wrong with his biological constitution!
so he went n get married!
Bcos of these Fixations, Suffering results

H asked me: Can Changed?
YES!

One can change one's destiny by diligent cultivation!
And understanding the Basics is a pre-requisite to success in cultivation

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
H was actually asking about certain phenomena at a business premises, but as long as One cultivate with diligence, then One has the ability to make changes to his environment or advice others to do so through Diligent Cultivation too! :)

However, MOST don't really know what is Cultivation! 

Do you?

常常想到更深層 Always Thinking to Great Depth



English Translation inserted by Lotuschef.

Om Guru Lian Sheng Siddhi Hom
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

蓮生活佛 > 師尊文集 > 257_煙雨微微 > 常常想到更深層


我說:我很少只看表面,我要看的是內在,而且更深層
I said: I very seldom look only from the surface, I want to see the interior, more over even deeper level.

有一次,在桃園機場,長榮航空的貴賓室。
看見聖嚴法師的書法:「心安就是平安。」
I sighted Reverend Sheng-yan's calligraphy: Heart secure that is safe & sound.
這句話很好。
可以倒過來說:
平安就是心安,心安就是平安。
但,
我想,這世上的人,有哪一位,是真正的「心安」?
「心安」?誰能心安?
I think, people of this world, which one is truly [Heart secure]? 
[Heart secure]? Who can be heart secure?

我的問題來了!
有誰真正能「心安」,我的問題是,要更深層的想:
Who can be truly [Heart secure], my question is, must think to deeper level:
「如何心安?」
How to be Heart secure?

我會心一笑:I will laugh in my heart:
「悟無所得,頓斷煩惱,這就心安了。」
Realised nothing to attain, instant severance of Suffering, this then is Heart Secure.

請仔細的想一想,我寫出的這句話,這就更完美了。
不是嗎?

我不是一個政治人物,但,我生活的環境充滿政治人物。
例如:
在兩岸議題上,蔡英文總統,只說了四個字:「維持現狀。」
In the 2-shores matter, President Cai-yin-wen only use 4 words: maintain current status.

我聽了欣然。
但,
我深一層的想的是:「如何維持?」
I ponder to a deeper level: How to maintain?
如今,
大陸客不來台灣,觀光業如何維持?
國際組織遭打壓,如何維持?
不依賴,如何維持?
我不是政治人物,我也不碰觸政治,我是方外之士,一個小市民。
但,
我仍然要問:
「如何維持?」

我曾問一位弟子:「佛與菩薩如何分?」
I ever asked a student: How to differentiate Buddha & Boddhisattva?

弟子哦了一聲:「沒有去想!我不太清楚!」
Disciple make an 'O' sound: Never go think! I not too clear!

我說:I said:
佛是自覺、覺他、覺行圓滿。
Buddha is self realised, realised others, realisation perfectly rounded.

菩薩是自覺、覺他。少了一個圓滿。
Boddhisattva is self realised, realised others. Less a perfectly rounded.

聲聞是只有自覺。
Savaka is self realised.

至於緣覺,是依十二因緣而覺悟。
As to Pratyeakabuddha, relying on the 12 Affinities in realisation.

坦白說:Frankly speaking:
這就是:This is:
「想到更深一層!」Think to an even deeper level!

寫一首現代詩吧!「更深一層」。
Write a current age poem! [An even deeper level].
莫表面 Not surface
表面無正見 Surface without Right View
真佛 True Buddha
不會現 Won't appear

更深一層的思量 An even deeper level of thought
不隨便 Not unmannered/casual
秤一秤 Balance it
思一思 Ponder a while
品嚐瑤池仙宴 Savour Yao-pond's celestial feast
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
This is GM Lu's new book - Writing about Ghosts

Hahaha! 
I read through these articles, AND, I would suggest that readers also USE GM Lu's advice to "Always Think to a Deeper Level"!

On the surface, the articles in Book 258 are in Questions & Answers Format, and the contents are severe reprimands and somewhat accusatory of subject XX.

Hahaha!
Does a Buddha kill with Words?
Does a Buddha leaves no leeway for a being to survive?
Does a Buddha's Boddhicitta not encompasses all Beings?

Yes! Thinking deeply!
What you hear or read from the Surfaces of a Buddha is not always the Truth!

If you use the 4 Noble Truths as your Dharma Tools, then ask these:
Who is XX? ~~ The Student or the Ghosts?

Ah! Got the drift?
On 31 Dec 2016, GM Lu said that Jin-mu and Mahabala had got rid of all the ghosts that controlled XX, right?

So? 
Isn't it time to launch "Rescue XX & Associates"?

Once again, Listen to your One & Only Root Guru with your Heart only!
The Buddha's Body Speech Mind should not be "doctored" or "manipulated" by mere mortals or animal spirits, in any way or form to deceive! :)

    There's a beautiful stretch of sea with 7 coloured lotuses blooming

    Padmaguru's mantra: Om Ah Hom Beza Guru Padma Siddhi Hom (Xie)

http://baike.baidu.com/view/14157356.htm

创作背景 Composition background
汶川地震前二十天左右,突然有一天,火风想起了梵文里面有一句祈祷天地之间的和谐、和平、吉祥的话语,于是创作了这首《七朵莲花》来表达自己对和谐、和平、吉祥的祈祷。
歌曲写成之后,毕晓迪和张勤一起为这首歌编曲。
歌曲录完音之后的第三天,汶川地震了 。
火风得知消息非常难受,于是希望通过《七朵莲花》这首歌曲呼唤人们能够爱护我们的土地,爱护我们的天空,大家都能够吉祥,都能够快乐,都能够像兄弟之间一样友好相处。
因为歌曲本身表达的那种和平与爱的博大情怀,这首歌当年在各地的赈灾义演上都曾经广为传唱。
About 20 days before the Wen-zhou earthquake, suddenly one day, Huo-feng thought of a phrase in Sanskrit to pray for harmony, peace, auspiciousness between the Heaven and Earth, thus he composed this song <7 Lotuses> to express his prayers for harmony, peace, auspiciousness.
毕晓迪&张勤 helped to arrange the song after it is written.
The Earthquake took place 3 days after the completion of recording this song. 
Upon hearing news of the earthquake, Huo-feng was very unhappy, thus hope that through this song [7 lotuses] can call out to all to love our grounds, love our sky, and all can be auspicious, can be happy, can live in friendly harmony like brothers.
Because this song expresses the great affectionate breast of peace and love, it was sung in many places to raise funds for the Earthquake's victims.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thats the composer's or songwriter's heartfelt intent! :)
But the lyrics has real Rich Buddha Dharma flavour! 

[*] ~ he has love in his heart and 7 lotuses bloom -this love that enables 7 lotuses to bloom or in other words the opening of the 7 chakras, is Boddhicitta and when all 7 chakras opened, this person can see his Buddha Nature!
Realisation or Enlightenment! :)

**< ....>** ~ his Boddhicitta wish!

***<....>*** ~ his Boddhicitta wish Realised! 

And this wish is made to Padmaguru or Padmasambhava, chanting his mantra several times!

Interesting Song!

A great song that GM Lu brought up to share with all!

Body Speech Mind!
Yes! You can choose to walk into this song and first make a Boddhicitta Wish then proceed to Execute Boddhicitta! 
Viola! You succeeded?
If not, try again! :)

Karma is always One's own responsibility and remember to Blame No One But Self! 

Also make sure you maintain Steadfast Faith in your Root Guru as well! 
Don't let yourself be victimised by mere mortals or spirits of Lower realms, when you have a Living Buddha for your Root Guru!
