每年7月-8月的满月日被熟知为Guru Purnima(上师满月日)。这个神圣的日子是向那些开悟的古老传承致敬,他们以他们的临在为世界带来恩典。一位古鲁就像一张地图,没有如此一位老师的带领,一个人也许最终仍会到达想要去的目的地,但会花很长一段时间。

 

Guru Purnima在传统里是求道者们对古鲁表达感激并接收他的祝福的日子。通常认为在Guru Purnima练习瑜伽和冥想将尤其受益。今年的7月27日是Guru Purnima,印度Isha中心将会举办盛大的庆典,同时也会有网络直播。节日临近时,公众号会及时推送直播链接与参与方式,请关注公众号相关消息。

 

以下为萨古鲁关于Guru Purnima的文章:

 

Sadhguru: This is the time of year when the Adiyogi’s attention first fell upon the seven now celebrated disciples. We are in the month when an ascetic and yogi, who is completely uninvolved with what is around him, is beginning to get involved. Slowly, the intention of sharing his experience is beginning to blossom. From the last full moon day to the coming one, which is referred to as Guru Purnima, Shiva could not take his attention off the Sapta Rishis, who prepared for 84 long years without even a moment of attention from him. And now, his attention upon his disciples was undivided.

萨古鲁:这是一年中特殊的时节,Adiyogi(即Shiva,人类第一位瑜伽士)第一次把注意力投向现已为人熟知的七位弟子身上。在这个特殊的月份里,一个原本与身边所有事物断绝联系的苦行僧和瑜伽士,开始参与了进来。渐渐地,他开始有了分享体验的意图。从上一个满月日到即将来临的这个满月日(即上师满月日)这个期间,Shiva(湿婆)无法将注意力从那七位弟子身上移开(现被称为七贤),他们在没有得到他丝毫关注的情况下默默准备了84年。而现在,他将全部的注意力投向这七位弟子。

 

This month is seen as the best time to receive the Grace of the Guru. This is a good time to seek Grace. This is a good time to make yourself receptive.

这个月被视为接收古鲁恩典的最佳时机。这是一个追求恩典的好时机。这是一个使你自己变得具有接收性的好时机。

 

This month is seen as one where even a completely heartless ascetic could not ignore the intensity of longing to blossom in the seven disciples and he became compassionate. Somebody who had hardened himself in such a way that the world could never touch him, loosened up, became compassionate and was compelled to become a teacher or a guru, for which he had no intention at all.

在这个月里,即使一个完全无情的苦行僧都无法忽视那七位弟子对绽放的强烈渴望,他也因此而变得慈悲。一个把自己磨炼到这个世界永远无法触碰的人,这样的人也放开了,变得慈悲,被迫成为一位老师、一位古鲁,他从来就没有过这样的意图。

 

So this month is seen as the best time to receive the Grace of the Guru. This is a good time to seek Grace.  This is a good time to make yourself receptive.

因此这个月被视为接收古鲁恩典的最佳时机。这是一个追求恩典的好时机。这是一个使你自己变得具有接收性的好时机。

 

“What should I do?” is always the question. If you don’t do anything of your own, if you are less of yourself, that is the best way to be receptive. The sadhana is always structured like this; it absorbs you into activity in such a way that in the daily process of living, you forget who you are. You forget what you are. You forget what your life is about. You are just absorbed into what is happening.

“我应该做什么?”一直是个问题。如果你不做自己的事,如果你的自我变少,那是变得有接收性的最好方式。灵性练习(Sadhana)的设计向来是为了使你在做事的时候全神贯注,以至于忘了自己是谁。你忘了你是什么。你忘了你的生命是为什么。你只是全然投入到正在发生的一切。

 

There is a beautiful story in the Zen system of allowing human consciousness to grow. A disciple goes to a Zen master and asks:

在促进人类意识成长的禅宗系统里有一个美丽的故事,一个弟子来到一位禅宗大师面前,问道:

 

‘What should I do for my spiritual growth?’

“我应该为我的灵性成长做什么?”

 

‘Sweep the floor, chop the wood, cook the food. That’s all.’

“扫地、砍柴、做饭,这就是全部。”

 

‘For that, why should I come here? I can do that at home!’

“为了这些,为什么我要来这里?我可以在家里做!”

 

‘But if you are sweeping the floor at home, it’s your own floor. You will not sweep the neighbor’s floor if it is dirty, you will not. Chopping the wood and cooking would be for your own use and who you consider as yours. You are using every activity to enhance who you are instead of using every activity to dissolve who you are.’

“但如果你在家里扫地,那是你自己的地。你不会扫你邻居的地,如果那儿脏了,你不会扫。你会为你自己砍柴做饭,或为了任何你认为属于你的人。你是在利用你做的每件事来增强你的自我,而不是利用它们来消融你自己。”

 

This is all the difference between making our activity, or our karma, either into a bondage or into a process of liberation. Either you are acquiring karma, or your karma is becoming yoga. That’s all it is. You are doing your activity to enhance yourself or are you are doing your activity to dissolve yourself?

这就是将我们的行为或者我们的业力, 变成一种束缚还是通往自由之间所有的区别。你要么在增加业力,要么你的业力可以变成瑜伽。只有这两种可能。你是在利用你做的每件事来增强你的自我,还是利用它们来消融你自己?

To make use of Grace, what should we do? Nothing to do. The less you do of what you consider as me and myself, the more available you become to Grace.

为了利用恩典,我们应该做什么?没什么可做的。你为“我”或“我自己”做得越少,你对恩典就越有接收性。

 

Just sweeping the floor, cooking food and planting a tree – not on your property, not for you and your children to sit under its shade – simply planting it so that anybody, even your enemy, may sit under its shade and enjoy it. Is itokay? If you plant a mango tree, your enemy and his children may eat the mangoes. Now this activity becomes a process of dissolution. Otherwise, every activity is a way of imprisoning yourself.

只是扫地、做饭、种树——不在你自己的地盘上,不为了你或你的孩子能坐在树荫里——只是种一棵树,让任何人,甚至你的仇人都能坐在它的树荫里享受。这样可以吗?如果你种一棵芒果树,你的仇人以及他的孩子也可能吃到它的果实。现在这个活动就成为一个消融的过程。否则,每个活动都是囚禁你自己的方式而已。

 

It is activity which is entangling people. Human ability to do things, unfortunately, is being used to imprison themselves. Human intelligence is being used to cause misery to oneself. Once you start doing this, you will unknowingly become an enemy of any kind of capability. That’s a bad position to take. If you are against all capability and intelligence, you are asking for regression. You are not asking for progress. You are not asking to evolve. You are asking to regress into a lesser kind of life.

正是活动使人们陷入纠缠。人类做事的能力,不幸地被用来囚禁他们自己。人类智力被用来给自己带来不幸。一旦你开始这么做,你会在不知不觉中与各种才能作对。那可不是好事。如果你与所有才能与智慧作对,你是在要求退化。你不是在要求成长。你不是在要求进化。你是在要求退化回更低级的生命。

 

So this is the month of Grace. Grace is like manure for growth. With Grace, a human being can catapult himself to another dimension of existence, capability and possibility. And to make use of Grace, what should we do? Nothing to do. The less you do of what you consider as me and myself the more available you become to Grace.

因此,这是恩典之月。恩典就像是成长的肥料。有了恩典,一个人能将他自己投掷到另一个维度的存在、才能和可能性。为了利用恩典,我们应该做什么?没什么可做的。你为“我”或“我自己”做得越少,你就对恩典就越有接收性。

 

Love&Grace,

Sadhguru

爱与恩典
