今天是地藏菩薩聖誕七月三十日( September 6, 2021) 地藏菩薩通常被描繪成一個剃光頭上有光環的和尚,他拿著一把強行打開地獄之門的法杖和一個如意寶來照亮黑暗。
Ksitigarbha birthday is usually celebrated on the Seventh month of the 30th day in the lunar Calendar
Ksitigarbha ( another name is Earthstore Boddhistava) Usually depicted as a monk with a halo around his shaved head, he carries a staff to force open the gates of hell and a wish-fulfilling jewel to light up the darkness. Sadhu❗️ Sadhu❗️ Sadhu❗️

Rare indeed is the birth of a Buddha. Hard it is to get a human birth. It is with the help of these two that one makes an end to this samsaric suffering.

佛陀的誕生確實是罕見的。 很難得到一個人的出生。 正是在這兩者的幫助下,才能結束這種輪迴的痛苦。

Ulambana, sometimes referred to as “ancestor day”, is celebrated during the 1st through the 15th days of the 7th lunar month. It is believed that the gates of hell are opened on the first day and ghosts are free to visit the world throughout this time, during which offerings are made to relieve their suffering.
This day also marks the completion of the monastic’s “rains retreat” (named for the coinciding of this time with monsoon rains in many Asian countries), during which they remain in one place for 3 months in order to concentrate on the teachings of the Buddha. It is considered that many monastics would have made progress during their retreat and therefore become a greater field of merit. Lay devotees make offerings on behalf of their ancestors and dedicate the merit towards those suffering in the Preta realm to relieve their suffering.

Ulambana,有時被稱為“祖先日”,在農曆七月的第一天到第十五天慶祝。 人們相信地獄之門在第一天打開,鬼魂在這段時間裡可以自由地訪問世界,在此期間,他們會提供供品來減輕他們的痛苦。

這一天也標誌著僧侶“雨閉關”(因亞洲許多國家此時正逢雨季而得名)的完成,在此期間他們在一處停留3個月,以專心於佛陀的教義。 . 人們認為,許多出家人在閉關期間會有所進步,因此會成為更大的福田。 在家奉獻者代表他們的祖先供養,並將功德迴向那些在 Preta 領域受苦的人,以減輕他們的痛苦。

Meditation:
“Ordinary mindfulness will keep the defilements in check, but it will not give rise to deep insights. Theoretical knowledge is not enough either. Philosophi­cal thinking and speculation arise from shallow concen­tration; insight arises only from deep concentration. One’s realisation of the truth of suffering must be direct and empirical. How deep that realisation is depends on the accumulation of spiritual perfections, but however good one’s perfections are, they cannot ripen without serious efforts” -The Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta

冥想:
“普通的正念會控制煩惱,但不會生起深刻的內觀。 理論知識也不夠。 哲學的思考和思索源於淺薄的專注; 內觀只能從深定中產生。 一個人對苦諦的認識必須是直接的和經驗的。 證悟的深淺取決於修行圓滿的積累,但一個人的圓滿有多好,如果沒有認真的努力,他們就無法成熟”——《Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta》
