Gift of Dharma from Venerable Jing Yuan Again

We were like enthusiastic school children again, going to another day’s lesson by Venerable on how to learn Lamrim on June 13 morning.

The lesson focused on the Master’s skilful means of explaining it from a beginner’s point of view by creating a desire to learn Dharma.  He showed us how to apply Dharma in our daily lives using simple examples in his discourse.

After lunch, we listened to a continuation of the discourse by Venerable Jing Yuan on a video, “How a Teacher Guides his Disciples” and the gratitude of a student towards a Teacher he relies on. He also shared his views on the monastic development in general.

With concern for our welfare, the organiser had specially arranged an evening care session with Venerables including Venerable Xing Te, who hailed from Singapore. This shows the organiser has an eye for details, to ensure participants are in tip top conditions to listen to Dharma lessons.

May every participant soak in the light of Dharma Teachings during this retreat!

追寻觉者离苦得乐  感念师恩勇悍护法

人人都想离苦得乐,却因不得法而离乐得苦,那要怎么求得正确的方法?今天上午的课程,法师为我们指出方法——用心听闻在汉地弘扬广论的日常法师的开示,藉由老和尚的善巧讲说,引发学佛的善法欲,从而决断跟随觉者佛陀,学习正确离苦得乐的方法。

下午,净远法师改变往昔说法的方式,活用影片、PPT等视听科技,继续“恩师带我行”的主题,精彩而深刻地带出学佛路上修行者的远过修德、净除障碍、安身办道,都是师长耗尽心力的引导,弟子才能修有所成的。因此,具信的佛弟子若能“依师立见,以见导行”,以师心为心,将能再创佛法的辉煌!

感谢大会今晚细心安排了分组关怀时段,性承、性特两位法师关心大家这几天来身心的调适与学习的状况,让大家在陌生的国度学习却一点也不孤单!
