佛性豈然?

Writing about Meaning of Suffering? from Far Away, So Close...

咸亨中師自新州參謁五祖。祖問曰:「汝自何來?」
師曰:「嶺南。」
祖曰:「欲須何事?」
師曰:「唯求作佛。」
祖曰:「嶺南人無佛性,若為得佛?」
師曰:「人即有南北,佛性豈然?」
祖知是異人,乃訶曰:「著槽廠去。」

Speak the truth

Writing about web page http://www.kingdomofheavenmovie.com/

I kind of like this quote….

"Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright. Speak the truth. Safeguard the helpless. That is your oath." — Balian of Ibelin

Lord Scarman

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/insite/newsandevents/warwickpeople/NE1000000098244/

Below are the words of Thomas Jefferson framing a portrait of Lord Scarman shown at The University:

I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education.

I cannot agree more to this…

The Black Mustard Seed

Writing about web page http://online.sfsu.edu/~rone/Buddhism/footsteps.htm

Once there was a woman named Kisagotami, whose first-born son died. She was so stricken with grief that she roamed the streets carrying the dead body and asking for help to bring her son back to life. A kind and wise man took her to the Buddha.

The Buddha told her, "Fetch me a handful of mustard seeds and I will bring your child back to life." Joyfully Kisagotami started off to get them. Then the Buddha added, "But the seeds must come from a family that has not known death."

Kisagotami went from door to door in the whole village asking for the mustard seeds, but everyone said, "Oh, there have been many deaths here", "I lost my father", I lost my sister". She could not find a single household that had not been visited by death. Finally Kisagotami returned to the Buddha and said, "There is death in every family. Everyone dies. Now I understand your teaching."

The Buddha said, "No one can escape death and unhappiness. If people expect only happiness in life, they will be disappointed."
