【念死 Mindfulness of Death】人生难有百年 The Human Lifespan hardly reaches a hundred years

念死 : 人生难有百年

那么在我们平常的念头、思想当中,什么啊?「死想」最重要。我们恰恰相反,一天到晚想着「常」。唉呀,这个我们人生难有百年,可是总是想的万年之计、千秋万年。那么现在佛法告诉我们无常,想着、一直想,为什么呀?由于这个想着这个死啊,三界当中的一切的「贪、无明、我慢」,统统消除掉了。不要说人世当中,欸,就是生到天上,八万四千大劫还要下来,对它是一无所望、一无所贪哪!你能够把这个拿掉了,修行一定可办!

Mindfulness of Death – The Human Lifespan hardly reaches a hundred years.

During the course of our usual thinking, what is it? “Thoughts of death” is the most important. However, we are the exact opposite, we spend the entire day thinking about permanence. Ah, this human life that we have hardly reaches a hundred, but we plan for ten thousand years, thousands of years. Now that Dharma is telling us about impermanence, think about it, keep thinking about it, why? With the thoughts of death, all the “attachment, ignorance and pride of the three realms” will be eliminated. Not only in the human realm, even as deities, after eighty-four thousand great kalpas, you still have to come down. There’s nothing to look forward to, nothing to desire. If you can remove this, your practice will be successful!
