「慶生福田」
有多少人活在貧窮綫下,從沒有一餐溫飽,感恩佛友 Ting Juan 顧及一批貧困者,在她的生日提供一頓營養午餐,給街頭的流浪遊民們吃了一頓熱飯,對於生活富足的我們來說不算甚麼,但是對於這些每日掙扎在飢餓邊緣的窮苦者來說,卻是他們一生中,夢寐以求的獎項,就是因為有了這一頓飯菜,足以令他們感到快樂。

如何的快樂?
如何的善舉給力?

就是在自己本人生日當天,或是為親朋好友送上您這份愛心,要相信這是一個很酷的生日禮物。 常說:「施比受更有福」,可知這樣的慶祝生日;這樣的生日歡渡共餐,在佈施給予數以百計的人一同餐飲,一起歡欣愉悅慶祝您或是您的親友生日,是何其快樂喔。

我們行菩薩道者,皆本著「慈」、「悲」、「喜」、「捨」之心,日日精進。本著未成佛道,先廣結善緣。

「慶生福田」活動可以在自己居住地區做供燈、打齋供養僧寶、施與貧困者一餐飽飯。為自己也為親朋好友們積聚福德資糧。我們希望有更多人跟我們一起來做,把這個具有意義的活動大力推廣下去。我們更希望世界上,人人都能本著慈悲喜捨之心,為您所能見的每一位貧困者伸出您友善的手。
這些功德都是你們自己累積的,不一定要透過美國菩薩寺來做的,你們也可以通過自己的渠道,隨興辦理,也可以將這個計畫一個接一個推廣下去。愛心就像原野的星星火光,只要我們每個人都本著溫柔心、慈悲心、喜捨心認真去做,這個世界就會變得溫馨感人。

希望大家都能以最好最適合的生日禮物,送給親友!
也希望大家都能在自己生日的那一天,獲得最好的祝福。
祝福佛友 Ting Juan 生日快樂 , 福壽無彊,阿彌陀佛!

IBS Prison Program
Every other month IBS team visits to Northern California State prisons. Tomorrow, early in the morning we are departing for our first prison of 16 days programs. Each and every day will be visiting different Sangha at different prisons. I am sure every brother will be excited to see us and can't wait to have services together. This time we are bringing lots of books, Buddha Statues, Gongs, Dharma bells, wooden fish and silk flowers as a donation for those Sangha who need these items. There are many brothers who genuinely practicing Dharma. Hope these items will become a support and condition to enhance their daily practice.

Prison is a place where we often see all kinds of unexpected situations. for example, Sometimes you drive for hours to get there and they will tell you today no services. Sometimes middle of the class’s brothers need to go back for recount. Sometimes alarm goes off and no meeting. Sometimes all in a sudden they lock-down and no any kinds of movement. I am praying and hoping for the fruitful visits these coming 16 days. I also would like to ask my Dharma friends and devotees on facebook to send your good wishes for our trip to be a successful one. We will let all the brothers at different Sangha know that there are 100s of people supporting this program to keep rolling. Be honest with you all, without your support IBS won't be able to continue this program. Thanks for being part of this altruistic program. It is not only helping incarcerated brothers to have temporary gratification but also gives very clear direction to be on this path for whole life/ life after life.

Everyday, we will let you all know how our program goes. Again, thank you so much for being part of this meaningful program. See you all in the next post with some new report. Don't forget to drop something in the comment. Amituofo

每月為監獄弘法布施$10美元

阿彌陀佛!菩薩寺運行至今,十數個年頭,在各方善眾大力加持下,監獄弘法佛果斐然。許多受刑信徒在獄中皈依三寶,成為佛們弟子,重新接受認識引導他們人生走向正途之法。美國菩薩寺將佛法和世間大眾的愛心,根植在各地監獄,讓眾業聚集、善惡交雜的複雜處所,開遍代表佛教的正法之花。
婆娑世界,正法難求,難聞難得。
我們做為人類,來到這個世界上,本就已難求難得如爪中沙。
作為人身,生活在這世界上是艱難的,每一步、每分每秒都在自我意識世界中受盡煎熬。
善與惡、得與失、是與非,總在無數個意念生滅中拉扯,顛倒夢想。
哭與笑、愛與恨,憤怒歡喜都如此身不由己、心不由我。
這世間給了我們太多,也奪去了我們太多。
我們步履艱難的行走在這浮屠之世,不知下一步將踏向何方。
錯錯對對,愛恨喜怒……數不清,難計較!
生活在這世上,人人都會犯錯,我們不斷從錯誤中學習、成長。
有的人,錯而知錯,而後改過向善,重新來過;
有的人錯而不知,無從改正,人生一直在不同的錯誤與煩惱中徘徊,找不到出路。
但總的來說,世界上沒有所謂的壞人,只有因無明而做錯事的人。
一直以來,監獄弘法這件事情,做的人不多,也很少有人願意做。菩薩寺本著眾生平等、未有分別之心,發願渡盡監獄眾生。給那些錯而不知的眾生一個錯而知錯,然後改正的機會。我們教導,已被世間放棄的人;我們用佛法,讓那些錯而不知的人,一個學習、修改爾後導正人生之途的難得機會。
請幫助美國菩薩寺 !
菩薩寺在各地監獄間奔忙弘法,在這個被金錢物質掌管的世界,我們舉步維艱、孤掌難鳴。佛法,早已超脫於世間物質金錢之外,要讓超脫於這世界的佛法在被物質掌管之處遍地開花,我們做得很辛苦。美國地大,各監獄場所相距甚遠,有的需要開車七個八個小時才能到達,最近的也須開車兩個多小時,有的要提前一天到達監獄附近旅館,以便進行第二日早上八點的佈教和法會。沿途經費所耗,需要更多善信大眾伸出您代表愛與慈悲的雙手,給那群已被世人遺忘的眾生一個接觸佛法、知錯改錯的機會。
每月10元,用微小金錢點燃這娑婆世界的愛心之光。以小小善行,點亮世間大大愛心。
捨……捨去十元,得回人生一個被善德環繞的光明世界。有一日,這些愛會返回,變成大大愛心,回饋到您想不到的地方。
阿彌陀佛,祝願普世大眾善願得成,功德無量!

每夜我們進入未知的世界。

Every day we encounter unexpected changes.
Both are dreams from the perspective of noble beings.
