【暇满 A human life of leisure and opportunity】五自圆满 The five aspects of opportunity that pertain to yourself

暇满 —— 五自圆满

【第二圆满。分二,】

这个圆满有十个,两两分开,前面五个叫「自圆满」,后面五个叫「他圆满」。

【五自圆满者,如云:「人,生中,根具,业未倒,信处。」】
这五样东西。

【言生中者,谓能生于四众弟子所游之地。】

这个叫「生中」,这个叫中国,就是中道所在的这个国土,这个叫作中国。那么这个一定是什么?四众游行的地方。「四众」,佛陀也包含在里头。佛陀啊,就是比丘,大比丘相,是现的大比丘相,所以「我在僧数」,佛自己在说:「我在僧数。」当然他是佛宝,但是呢,他自己是算在这个僧当中,四众当中包括佛、僧。他游行的地方,就是法也带进去了。

【A human life of leisure and opportunity - The five aspects of opportunity that pertain to yourself】

【2) Opportunity 】

There are 10 aspects of opportunity, divided into two parts. The first part is opportunity that pertains to the self, and the latter is opportunity that pertains to others.

【a) The five aspects of opportunity that pertain to yourself. According to the Sravaka Levels the five are:
Being human, being born in a central region, having complete sensory faculties, having reversible karma, and having faith in the source. 】
These five things.

【"Being born in a central region" means that you are born in an area wherein the four types of followers are active. 】

This is called “being born in a central region,” this is called the central kingdom, which is the kingdom where the middle way/path exists. This is called the central kingdom. So what is this supposed to be? It is where the four types of followers are active. “Four types of followers,” Buddha is also included in there. Buddha is a bhikshu, a great bhikshu, he manifested as a great bhikshu. Therefore, “I am a member of the Sangha.” Buddha said so himself, “I am a member of the Sangha.” Of course he is the Buddha Jewel, but he is also counted among the Sangha community. So the four types of followers include Buddha and the Sangha. The areas where they are active means the Teachings have been brought in.
