提昇人品 Becoming a Good Human Being

1 需要的不多,想要的太多。 Our needs are few; our wants many.
2 知恩報恩為先,利人便是利己。
What is most important is to be grateful for what you’ve
been given and repay in kind — to benefit others is to
benefit ourselves.
3 盡心盡力第一,不爭你我多少。 Do your utmost – no matter who gains or loses.
4 慈悲沒有敵人,智慧不起煩惱。 Compassion has no enemies; wisdom, no vexations.

health.
6 布施的人有福,行善的人快樂。 The charitable are blessed; the virtuous, happy.
7 心量要大,自我要小。
Let the measure of your heart be great; the size of your
ego, small.
8 要能放下,才能提起。提放自如,是自在人。
When you can let it go, then you can pick it up. At ease
letting it go or picking it up – then you are truly free.

9
識人識己識進退,時時身心平安;知福惜福多培福,
處處廣結善緣。
Know yourself, know others; know when to advance,
when to retreat; at all times maintain peace and
equanimity in body and mind; know your blessings, use
them wisely, strive to increase them; everywhere you go
develop deep virtuous affinity with others.

10

提得起放得下,年年吉祥如意;用智慧種福田,日日
都是好日。
Able to pick it up, able to let it go – year after year good
fortune will surely follow; sow a field of blessings with
wisdom! Everyday, all days – are good days.

11
身心常放鬆,逢人面帶笑;放鬆能使我們身心健康,
帶笑容易增進彼此友誼。
Always keep your body and mind always relaxed and
meet everyone with a smile; relaxation makes your mind
and body healthy, and a smile gathers friends and
friendship.

12
話到口邊想一想,講話之前慢半拍。不是不說,而是
要惜言慎語。
About to speak? Think a moment. Slow your speech a bit.
It’s not that you should not speak, but rather that you
should cherish what you say and choose your words with
care.

13
在生活中,不妨養成「能有,很好;沒有,也沒關
係」的想法,便能轉苦為樂,便會比較自在了。
In daily living it is better to think: “fine if I can have it, no
matter if I can’t”; thus transform suffering to joy and live a
life of serenity.

The four contentments: mind at peace, body at rest,
family in harmony, all enterprise at ease.

When you wish for something – as yourself these four
questions: Is it needed? Is it wanted? Is it obtainable? It is
advisable?

The four attitudes to take towards others: grateful,
thankful, transforming, inspiring.

17 四它:面對它、接受它、處理它、放下它。
The four steps in dealing with any problem: face it, accept
it, deal with it, let it go.

18 四福:知福、惜福、培福、種福。
The four keys to good fortune: know what you are
blessed with, cherish it, help it grow, and plant seeds for
future blessings.

19 能要、該要的才要;不能要、不該要的絕對不要。
If possible and permissible, seek after it; if impossible
and forbidden, keep away from it.

20 感恩能使我們成長,報恩能助我們成就。
With gratitude we grow; repayment of kindness leads to
success.

21 感謝給我們機會,順境、逆境皆是恩人。
Be thankful at every opportunity: good and bad fortune
are both allies.

22 遇到好事,要隨喜、讚歎、鼓勵,並且虛心學習。
Rejoice when you encounter good, praise it, encourage it
to spread, but take care to learn with an open mind.

23 少批評、多讚美,是避免造口業的好方法。
More praise and less criticism! Cut down the karma that
comes from what you say.

24 平常心就是最自在、最愉快的心。 An ordinary mind is a mind of utmost freedom, utmost joy.

25 踏實地走一步路,勝過說一百句空洞的漂亮語。
A true step on the path merits more than a hundred
shallow words adorned with tinsel.

26
知道自己的缺點愈多,成長的速度愈快,對自己的信
心也就愈堅定。
The more you come to know your weaknesses, the faster
you will grow – your self confidence unwavering.

summon the mind of diligence.

29
踏踏實實做人,心胸要廣大;穩穩當當做事,著眼宜

and steady in accomplishment, with vision penetrating
and far-reaching

32 「忙」沒關係,不「煩」就好。 Busy? No matter. No vexation. All is well.

Work quickly, not anxiously; mind and body relaxed and
unbound.

Finish your work quickly, but in an orderly manner; don’t
become nervous trying to compete with time itself.

35
不要以富貴貧賤論成敗得失,只要能盡心盡力來自利
利人。

work only to benefit yourself and others with all your heart
and strength.

36
任勞者必堪任怨,任事者必遭批評。怨言之下有慈忍
,批評之中藏金玉。
Work hard and others may resent you, take up a task and
risk criticism; compassion lies within harsh words,
treasure buried deep within criticism.

37 隨遇而安,隨緣奉獻。
Be at ease in all encounters; give of yourself, as
conditions permit.

38 成功的三部曲是:隨順因緣、把握因緣、創造因緣。
The three acts of success: accord with causes and
conditions, act decisively when they arise, shape the
future.

39
見有機緣宜把握,沒有機緣要營造,機緣未熟不強

people with compassion; forget benefit, harm, gain, and
loss, and vexations will diminish.

An ordinary mind bends to circumstances; a sage mind
transforms circumstances.

46 大鴨游出大路,小鴨游出小路,不游就沒有路。
Big duck swims, big wake; little duck swims, little wake.
No duck in the water? No wake at all.

47 山不轉路轉,路不轉人轉,人不轉心轉。
Can’t move the mountain? Build a road! Road blocked?
Start climbing! Can’t climb? Shift mind!

48 「精進」不等於拚命,而是努力不懈。
True diligence doesn’t mean placing your life at risk. It is
simply unwavering persistence.
49
船過水無痕,鳥飛不留影,成敗得失都不會引起心情
的波動,那就是自在解脫的大智慧。

departs. Gain or lose, succeed or fail – emotions do not
stir: this is the great wisdom of freedom and liberation.

Making life easier for others is making your life easier for
yourself.

humiliated by what he suffers.

we encounter around us as well as how people judge us.

giving.

essential.

59

去和未來同在。
There is no need to dwell in the past, no necessity to
worry about the future: the enduring present holds both
past and future.

我中心的態度。
Wisdom is not simply knowledge, nor experience, nor idle
speculation; it is an attitude that transcends selfcenteredness

Great accomplishment – complete humility; big ego –
great insecurity.

62
上等人安心於道,中等人安心於事,下等人安心於名
利物欲。

a well. Dig deeper and more water flows in; give more
and wealth multiplies.

財富。

pick up what you can. These are virtuous acts.

gain and loss, gain and loss – vexations are sure to come.

80 經常少欲知足的人,才是無虞匱乏的富人。 Having few desires bring riches without worry.

81 心不平安是真正的苦,身體的病痛不一定是苦。
True suffering is a mind without peace or calm. Physical
pain and illness are not necessarily suffering.

明知心不平安是苦事,就趕快以持念「南無觀世音菩
薩」來安心吧!
Know clearly that an unsettled mind is trouble. Right then
and there – recite “Homage to Guan Yin, Bodhisattva
Avalokitesavara” to calm your mind.

83
現在擁有的,就是最好的。擁有再多也無法滿足,就
等於是窮人。

accumulates and is never satisfied.

with contemplation, reciting Buddha’s name, or prayer.
