Stability in the mind, Sharpness in the intellect, and Softness in the heart 心智的穩定,理智的敏銳,以及心的柔軟

Stability in the mind, Sharpness in the intellect, and Softness in the heart

Sri Sri: You should feel that everyone belongs to you, and you should have patience. You know in a day I have to listen to around 2000 to 3000 questions. Do I listen to them or not? How many every questions are asked, I reply to all of them. And I listen to them with enthusiasm. So stability in the mind, sharpness in the intellect, and softness in the heart, these three things are important in life.
The heart should be soft, the intellect should be sharp and the mind should be pleasant. Never lose these three things. Even if it seems to be lost, just think that it is just hidden somewhere and it has not actually gone away.
Q:When someone hurts us, we get into depression.
Sri Sri: How can others hurt you? Those who hurt others are foolish. Will you blame anyone who is actually foolish or is mentally ill? No, isn’t it?
So, just think that those who hurt you are either foolish or ill. If you think like this, then you will not feel hurt. Okay?
If you think that everyone should act wisely, how is it possible? Everyone has their own little mind, own desires, problems and ignorance. Just accept them.
No one can hurt us until we permit them to do so.
Q: Gurudev, sometimes I am not able to understand the knowledge given by you. What should I do so that I can get both your love and knowledge?
Sri Sri: Whatever you find difficult to understand, it is not to be understood at all. If it is all going above your head, let it go. Take only what you can understand.
See, everyone’s capacity to gain knowledge is different, but to be in love, to be in devotion you don’t need any capability. When it comes to devotion, everyone is same and equally capable. There is no special qualification for it.
Now, when we talk about knowledge, then yes, everyone has a different capacity. Some people have a higher capacity for knowledge and some have a lesser capacity, but this does not make any difference when there is devotion and a feeling of oneness.
Don’t think that only if you are knowledgeable, God become happy with you or become fond of you. It is not like that. The purpose of knowledge is for your own joy.
To purify your intellect, you need Knowledge.
To purify your heart, you need Love.
To purify your karma, you need Seva.
All three should go together.


心智的穩定,理智的敏銳,以及心的柔軟

你應該感到每個人都屬於你,而你需要有耐心。你知道我一天需要聽 2000 至 3000個問題。我有聽那些問題嗎?多少問題被發問,我全都回答了。而我是以熱情聆聽他們。所以心智的穩定,理智的敏銳,以及心的柔軟,這三樣事情在生命裡是很重要的。
心需要柔軟,理智須要敏銳,而心智必須要愉快。永遠別失去這三樣事情。就算它看起來像是不見了,就想像它可能只是藏在某處而它不是真正不見的。
問:當有人傷害了我們,我們陷入了沮喪。
古儒吉:別人如何傷害你?那些傷害你的人是愚蠢的。你會責怪那些愚蠢或是精神有問題的人嗎?不會,對不對?所以,就只是把那些傷害你的人想像成愚蠢或是生病的。如果你這麼想,那麼你就不會覺得受傷。好嗎?如果你想像每個人都應該明智行事,這有可能嗎?每個人都有自個兒的小心智,自己的慾望,問題和無明。就只是去接受他們。
沒有人能傷害我們除非我們允許他們那麼做。
問:古儒吉,有時候我並不明白你給予的知識。我要怎麼做才能得到你給的愛和知識?

古儒吉:任何你覺得很難明白的,那是完全不需要去明白的。
如果那是超越你的頭腦的,就隨它去吧。就只接受那些你能明白的。看,每個人獲得知識的能力都不一 樣;但是要處在愛裡,處在虔誠奉獻裡是不需要任何能力的。當談到虔誠奉獻,每個人都一樣,而能力也一樣。這裡是沒有特別的條件的。
現在,當我們談到知識,那麼是的,每個人有不同的能力。
有些人對知識有比較高的能力而有些人則比較低,但是當有虔誠奉獻和一體感的時候就沒有什麼分別了。
不要以為只有當你是有知識的時候,神才會快樂並喜愛你。不是這樣的。知識的目的是為了你本身的喜悅。

要淨化你的理智,你需要知識。
要淨化你的心,你需要愛。
要淨化你的業力,你需要服務。
這三者需要並行。

How to accept people who do bad things to me? 如何接受对我做了坏事的人?

Q: Guruji, How to accept people who do bad things to me?


Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: If they do bad things against you, what can you do?
If you don't accept them what other option do you have? If you don't accept them you will be upset, isn't it? Your mind will be disturbed, and when you are so upset, any decision you take, will you be happy about it? Certainly not!
So for your own sake, accept people and the situation as they are, so that your mind becomes calm. Then you do what you want to do.
 
问:古儒吉,要如何接受对我做了坏事的人?

古儒吉:如果他们对你错了坏事,你能做些什么?
如果你不接受他们,你有什么其他的选择吗?如果你不接受他们,你会觉得懊恼,对不对?你的心智会被擾亂;而当你变得如此懊恼的时候,你会满意任何你所做的决定吗?当然不会!
所以为了你自己,去接受别人的本貌和事情的实况,使你的心智变得平静。然後你才去做你想要做的。

Sankalpa (firm resolve to take action) 意願(採取行動的堅定決心)

Sankalpa (firm resolve to take action)

You are never asked to take a Sankalpa for small things. Your small wishes and desires anyway get fulfilled, is it not?
Everything does happen anyway. So when things are happening, instead of keeping small ambitions, you should aspire for something bigger. You should think for the nation and think of the betterment of the world. This is what it is.
Usually you just have small little desires for yourself. You should take up a bigger Sankalpa, one that is beneficial for everyone. This is what is said in the Sanatan Dharma (another name for Hinduism from the ancient days), ‘Tanme Manah Shiva Sankalpa Mastu’, which means, may my mind always have a Sankalpa that is beneficial for everyone.

意願(採取行動的
堅定決心

你從來不需要對小樣的事情發意願。你的小心願和慾望無論如何都會得到滿足,對嗎?
一切無論如何都會發生。所以當事情發生的時候,以其只是保留著小意願,你應該追求更大的東西。你應該為國家以及更美好的世界著想。就是這樣。
通常你只有一些為自己的小慾望。你應該發更大的意願,一個可以對大家有益的。這就是在
萨纳坦达尔玛(Sanatan Dharma古時候對印度教的稱呼)裡說到的『Tanme Manah Shiva Sankalpa Mastu』,意思是,願我的心智時時刻刻都懷著對大家有益的意願。

Our Roles in Life 我們生命裡的角色


Gurudev, you said that whatever role we are given in life, we should play that role 100% to the best of our abilities. But how can we know what our role really is?
Sri Sri: Whatever role you are in now, that’s the right one! (Laughter) Every person plays many roles in life. Whatever role you are given in life, just play that role well. Someone is a mother, or a father, or a husband, or a wife, etc.
Be a good citizen of your society and play that role well. Whether you are a wise person, or a disciple, or a Guru; whatever role you are given, play it well and fearlessly. Do not fear to do what is required.

古儒吉,您说在生命里无论我們被給予什麼角色,我們都應該百分之百並全力以赴去扮演這個角色。但是我們要如何知道我們真正的角色是什麼?
古儒吉:任何你現在的角色,那就是正確的!(笑聲)每個人在生命裡都扮演很多個角色。任何你在生命裡被給予的角色,就把那個角色扮演好。有些人是個母親,或者是個父親,或是個丈夫,或是個太太等。在社會裡做個好市民也把這個角色扮演好。無論你是個智者,或是個門徒,或者是個上師;任何被給予的角色,都無畏懼的去把它扮演好。不要害怕去做那些所需要的。

Guru Punch!

When there is an attitude to give and hesitation to take or to ask, then the direction of life has reached an elevated level. If there is hesitation to give and no shame in taking then that comparatively is of a lower level of existence. And there are some people who even go to the extent of pouncing, grabbing and seizing which is an even lower level of existence. +Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
當有要給予以及遲疑要去索取或去要求的態度,那麼這個生命的方向已達到一個提升的水平。如果是遲疑去給予,但是卻在索取的時候沒有覺得廉恥;那相對的是一個較低水平的存在。而也有一些人甚至去猛撲,緊抓和奪取的程度;這是個更低水平的存在。~古儒吉

Guru Punch!

​​
Everything has been given and yet we sit and cry over small matters. For how long will you cry like this? Wake up! It is impossible to find complete happiness in the world. Happiness is always accompanied by some problems or the other, here and there.
​​Have the courage and wake up! +Sri Sri Ravi Shankar


​一切都已经被给予了,但是我们还是在为了小事而哭泣。你要这样哭泣到几时?醒过来吧!在这个世界上要寻求完整的幸福​是不可能的。幸福往往伴随着一些问题或者是些其它的。要有勇气并醒过来吧!~古儒吉
