看破人生的无常

Recommended Posts

       亲鸾上人是日本著名禅师。9岁那年,他就下了出家的决心,请慈镇禅师为他剃度。慈镇禅师问他:“你这么小,为什么要出家呢?”
  亲鸾说:“我虽然只有9岁,父母却已双亡。我不知道为什么人一定要死亡,为什么我一定要与父母分离。所以,我一定要出家,探索这些道理。”
  慈镇禅师说:“好!我愿意收你为徒。不过,今天太晚了,待明日一早,我再为你剃度吧!”
  亲鸾却说:“师父!虽然你说明天一早为我剃度,但我终究是年幼无知,我不能保证自己出家的决心可以持续到明天。而且,师父,你年纪这么大了,你也不能保证自己明早起床时还能活着吧?”
  慈镇禅师听完,不禁拍手叫好,满心欢喜地说:“对!你说的话完全没错。现在我就为你剃度!”
  人生无常,变化无常,思在未来,却要行在当下。9岁的亲鸾,说出的话令成年的我们震撼不已。想想看,我们是不是曾经动摇过很多个决心?一万年太久,只争朝夕!今日事,就应该今日毕,否则到了“明天”,即便你自己还有决心,周围的环境恐怕已经是“时不我待”了!
