A Peaceful Mind----The most Effective Resort of Spiritual Protection

2009年04月28日 11:09:00 佛教在线 点击:0

Brief Introduction of the Author: SHI Suquan, Vice Chairman of Sichuan Provincial Buddhism Association, Abbot of Mazu Arhat Temple in Shifang, Sichuan Province, Professor of Nizhong Buddhist Academy, Sichuan Province, administrative member of E’mei Mountain Buddhist Academy, Sichuan Province.

To protect the nature reasonably and keep the ecological equilibrium makes humane beings away from disasters or famine. It is true with the fact that to protect our spiritual space makes individuals as well as the whole world peaceful and serene, just as the Fagu Mountain Eminent Monk once said, “a peaceful mind is equal to a peaceful world.”

Environmental protection calls for defending the harmony and unity of the natural world, as well as an equal mind towards all creatures. It is not desirable for human beings to ask for more from the nature just to fulfill their own greed, which in turn destroys the ecological equilibrium. The spiritual protection of human beings, instead, lies in the peaceful spiritual mind that will not be troubled with annoyance, hatred or disputes, but shows equality towards all folks and creatures. This is a peaceful mind.

I. The fundamental resort to spiritual protection is a peaceful mind.

Great Master Huineng once listened to others reciting Diamond Sutra. One of the lines---“no obsession and expectation, with detachment and a quiet heart instead”---made him suddenly enlightened and determined to study Buddhism and enter into religion. This reveals that Great Master has the ability of observing everything in equality, and his detachment as a Zen Buddhism. “Every one is equal with a Buddhism mind.

By “a peaceful mind”, we refer to an equal mind first and foremost. Just as Buddha-avatamsaka Sutra says, we need an equal mind to either prize or calumny. Not only all human beings are equal, but human beings and Buddhas are equal as well. Zen Buddhism guides one to be a decent person with an equal mind, which is the fundamental aspect of all Buddhism practice.

The essence of Buddhism practice is the culture of the mind, while the masterstroke of Chinese Zen Buddhism is to quiet the mind and let the stained mind go back a normal and healthy state, so as to achieve the state of tranquility.

II. How to enjoy a peaceful mind and protect the spiritual world

1. With a peaceful and healthy mind

A healthy strong body comes from the good habits formed in daily life and sufficient physical exercises. A healthy spiritual world also requires the protection and practice in daily life.

There are such eleven beneficial methods stated in Baifamingmen Theory as “trust, effort, regret, shame, no greed, no annoyance, no obsession, satisfaction, no indulgence, generosity and unharmfulness”. It also says that only in a kind heart can these methods be cultivated. Therefore, the basic principle of spiritual protection is to maintain a kind heart in peace and equality. Buddha tells us that equality is the essentiality while benevolence an indispensible part. They are supported by and depended on each other, which co-create a harmonious world without annoyance and disputes. This is the ultimate peacefulness.
