佛光菜根谭 (摘录)

星云大师 著



一、佛光菜根谭之修行
小人专希望人给,给过就忘
君子不轻受人恩,受则必报
A mean person expects all things from others,and then forgets to reward the favor.
A virtuous person does not expect things from others,and always thinks of repaying favors.

为儿孙作未来计,十望九空
为社会作众人谋,点滴有功
Schemes to advance posterity usually fail.
Working for society today gains merits.

悭吝嫉妒的人,即使财富满室也走不出内心的贫乏
埋怨自怜的人,纵使四肢健全也跨不出内心的框框
Even with all his money,a jealous miser cannot rise above mental poverty.
Even with his strong legs,a whiner cannot walk away from his inner weakness.

吾人必须要求自己,健全自己才能得以生存
吾人必须反观自省,培植善缘才能迈向佳境
We must be wholesome to survive.
We must think and cultivate good causes and conditions to improve our state.

世间最贵者,就是尊重生命
世间最恶者,就为残杀生灵
The best thing in the world is to respect life.
The worst thing in the world is to kill.

耳闻不如目见
