世間興佛學

世间对佛学其实有许多误解。佛学的确强调诸法因缘而起,空白自性,但并非说每人前途命中注定。坏的命运也可以藉种种植善而加以改变。佛教并不鼓励人听天由命或乐天知命,而希望人开创命运。同样佛教对世事关心而不干政,对科学知道而不迷信,对财富享有而不拥有。佛教有所取,有所舍,有所舍才能有所得。

佛学并不排斥赚钱,关键在于你的出发点,你赚钱的目的是什么。有些人赚钱是为了自己,自己感官的享受,自己欲望的满足,所以他很在意赚,很在意亏,能得不能失。有些人赚钱为了他人,为了社会,为理想而奋斗,看起来高尚,实际上脱离了人的本性,脱离了社会的物质基础,结果不会有赚钱的动力,变成一种空洞的目的。佛教赚钱是自利利他,既是为了自己的生存,也是为了回报社会,济救众生。能够赚钱其实是一种福报。有了钱才能使自己生活,有了钱才能保持自己的臭皮囊,没有钱,不去赚钱,怎么能有机会、有基础、有身体、有能力去帮助社会和弘法利生呢?佛教对金钱也持有享有并不拥有的理财观,不去追逐金钱,不去寻找暴利,不去损害别人,不成为金钱的奴隶,相反去方便社会大众、去宣传佛学佛理、去布施结缘,广植福田,也就是要用好钱,让钱流动。拥有金钱是福报,会用钱是智慧。

空即是不空,不空即是空

空? 不空?

My friend also send me this message before, but do not know whether this really work?

Shall we also jump repeatedly and hoping that when the impact comes, we are in the process of jumping and not touching the ground?

Also, wish you a prosperous and happy new year!

So many poor people and miserable lives everywhere in the world which requires others' attention whilst so many people only know how to treat their pets well and care for how many cats and/or dogs are killed in the street, leaving a lot of our own species dying every second everyehere in the world!  What are big joke!
