活動詳情 About The Event

English description follows below Chinese description

本會將舉辦由淨行導師 Visu Teoh 主持慈心/內觀一日禪。培育慈心為我們帶來不一樣的生活品質。

慈心是四種‘梵住’心中的第一種,即願自己及眾生快樂。佛陀在教導‘四念住’以外,也教導慈心禪。在《慈經》中,佛陀教導弟子們培育像母親對待自己孩子般的慈愛。通過培育慈心,我們能友善地跟自己及他人做朋友,懂得以柔軟、寬容的心原諒及接納自己及他人,從而在生活上無論與己或他人都能和諧共處。在經典裡,佛陀指示出修習慈心禪有睡眠安穩,不做惡夢,為人、天所愛,不被火、毒藥與武器所傷害,心易得定等諸多利益。

淨行導師在修習和教導慈心禪方面經驗豐富。修習主要以坐禪及行禪的形式,持續不間斷的培養、強化慈心的素質,以至轉化心靈。淨行導師亦將會在每晚的開示中介紹‘四念住’及其他三種‘梵住’心。

Please join us on a 1-day Metta (Lovingkindness) and Vipassana (Insight) Meditation retreat led by Visu Teoh.

As well as Vipassana practice, the Buddha taught the importance to always practice Metta and kindness. Metta is a Pali word that means goodwill, Lovingkindness, friendliness. It is a one of four divine ways of abiding. Lovingkindness is unconditional love and friendliness towards all beings. It makes no distinction between any living being. The highest aspiration mentioned in the Lovingkindness discourse is that one loves all beings just as a mother loves her only child - but of course, first, we have to be skilled at developing it towards ourselves.

By cultivating compassion, we can treat ourselves and others kindly and know how to use the supple forgiving heart to accept ourselves and others, leading us to live our daily lives harmoniously and with ease of mind. The Buddha also spoke about eleven benefits of practicing Metta, such as; sleeping easily, dreaming no evil dreams, beloved by all beings and devas, neither fire poison nor weapons can harm us, that one’s mind gains concentration quickly, etc.

Cost: Voluntary donations
