【LISTENING】 – THE EFFECT OF DHARMA BLISS

This delight is wondrous delight. This is not saying that today you are capable of great, flowery speeches that people will listen to with great interest, and days later will still linger in their minds. These effects may not necessarily purify our afflictions. Sorry, but this is not true Dharma Bliss. Genuine Dharma Bliss has a kind of “wondrousness” to it. What is its effect? “Your virtue becomes steadfast.” You will be able to focus on Dharma and not be swayed! That is called steadfast! Otherwise, upon hearing, even though the teaching is very logical for you to remove afflictions, once a small situation arises, alas! Pre-occupied by attachment, hostility, and ignorance [the 3 mental poisons], [you are] unable to dwell on the teaching and unable to be steadfast. Therefore, in this kind of situation, if [you are] able to start from the beginning, to recognize the appearance [of afflictions] in the mind stream through your contemplation and experiential application, in the end, even if the three thousand worldsystems are destroyed by the fire of the eon, you will maintain stability in the Quiescent-Light [see book 1 Introductionl: 常寂 光淨⼟ Land-of-Eternally-Quiescent-Light]. These are the proper steps: begin from proper listening.

听闻 : 法喜的功效

这个欢喜,妙的!妙欢喜。不是说今天你能说善道,哎呀,说得人家天花乱坠,听的人哪听得兴趣无穷、余音裊裊这样,几天还回忆这个事情。但是不一定能够净化烦恼的话,对不起,这个不是真实的法喜。

真实的法喜啊,有这样的"妙"。功效呢?"获坚住"!你就在法上能安住,不动摇!所以才叫坚住。要不然听见了以后。尽管讲的法讲得有道理,叫你净除烦恼,碰见一点点小小的事情,哎哟!贪、嗔、痴在那个地方转,没有安住,坚固更谈不到。所以你在这种情况之下,能够刚开始的时候,在心里的行相认得它,经过你思惟,经过修证的话,最后尽管三千大千世界为劫火烧尽,你就在那个寂光当中安住不动,这是必然的次第,由听闻入手。
