OMAK and the Importance of Stages of the Path

20170615_201421-min.jpg

The main points learnt from today's lesson were:

a) OMAK - A Beautiful Heart

  1. OMAK - its significance and how to apply it in our daily life to eradicate afflictions. Practice makes perfect the art of OMAK.
  2. Cultivate the Bodhisattva spirit – a solution to a better, happier life as mentioned in the Lamrim, of which the foundation is OMAK.

b) Lamrim - Importance of Stages of the Path

Knowing the correct stages or sequence in our practice, is akin to the steps for cooking rice. Otherwise, what we wish for will not materialise, yet what we do not want will happen. What we aim for relates closely to following these correct stages. 

Thus, understand the stages of the path is very important for a Buddhist practitioner in order to reach enlightenment.

观功念恩是修慈悲心的基础

学佛是希望有一天我能跟佛一样,具足慈悲与智慧,而修慈悲心的基础就是观功念恩。所以,要把观功念恩修成一种生活的态度。

家人是我这一生最亲近的人,为什么我会忽略家人?善知识说不是因为太熟悉,而是我那生硬的心不熟悉他的好、不熟悉他对家庭的贡献,所以要大家从p岛带回微笑,对家人说感恩的话。

观功念恩其实就是思路方向的改变,把我的心朝向看人性中最美好的那一面,心中就会充满感恩,使自己成为幸福的人。
