Buddhism

Buddhism is an utmost virtuous education taught by the Buddha for the benefit of all beings. Its purpose is to help all beings to awaken from delusions, to recover their true nature, and to leave sufferings behind and achieve true happiness.

Sakyamuni Buddha, founder of Buddhism, was born 2600 years ago in modernday Nepal as a prince of the Sakya clan. He became a monk in search of the Way that can liberate humankind from the sufferings of birth, aging, sickness, and death. Having attained perfect enlightenment, he became a Buddha. His teachings are the Dharma, and his noble disciples are the Sangha.

The Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha form the key notion of Buddhism, known as the Three Jewels, which all Buddhists take refuge in. The Three Jewels embody awakening, correct understanding, and purity, three attributes of true nature that one can recover through cultivating precept observation, meditative concentration, and wisdom.

The three stages of enlightenment, namely, arhat, bodhisattva and Buddha can be achieved according to the degrees of cultivation. From arhat onwards, egoattachment is eradicated so there is no more transmigration in the Six Paths and, thus, no more suffering.

The Pure Land method is a special Buddhist cultivation method in which to attain enlightenment in one lifetime. It requires one to have firm belief in Amitabha Buddha, to recite his name, and to vow to seek rebirth in his Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss.

 

佛教

佛教是最善良的純善的教育,由佛陀所造,利益眾生,其目的是幫助喚醒所有的人,從妄想中恢復自己的真實本性,離開痛苦,實現真正的幸福。

佛教創始人釋迦牟尼佛,出生於2600年前在現代尼泊爾,當時他是薩迦族的王子,他出家修道,為了尋找可以將人類從生、老、病、死的苦中解脫的道路,最終達到圓滿的啟蒙結果。

他成了佛祖,他的教誨成為佛法,他的門徒是僧伽,佛、法、僧,形成佛教的組織關鍵概念,被稱為所有佛教徒皈依三寶的依據,三寶的依據代表著覺、正、淨,三個屬性可以通過恢復真實本性培養戒、定、慧。

三個階段啟蒙,即阿羅漢、菩薩和佛的次地可以依序培養實現,從阿羅漢起,我執依戀是根除的,所以沒有了六道的輪迴,也就是沒有了痛苦。淨土方法是一種特殊的佛教徒法門,在一生中達到啟蒙證果。它需要一個堅定信仰阿彌陀佛,誦阿彌陀佛名號,並發誓要重生純淨純善終極幸福之地的極樂世界。
