给予自己和他人一个崭新的开始

Sadhguru: When you live in close proximity with the same people for a period of time, you slowly get to know everything about them. Sometimes you see them beautiful, sometimes angry, magnanimous, or petty – everyone’s drama unfolds in front of you. You know how they think and feel. Consequently, you may become hugely opinionated about each individual.

萨古鲁:当你和同样的人近距离相处一段时间后,慢慢地你会了解有关他们的一切。你会看到他们美丽的时候,生气的时候,大度的时候,或者小气的时候——每个人的剧情都在你面前展开。你知道他们的想法和感受。因此,你可能变得对他们每一个人都充满成见。

 

Whatever opinions, ideas, and conclusions you may have about other people and about yourself – now is the time to drop them.

无论你对他人、对自己有着怎样的看法和评判,现在是时候放下了。

 

With Bhogi Pongal coming up, this is a time of the year where you are supposed to burn all this old baggage. From Dakshinayana, or the southern run, the sun is shifting to the northern run – from sadhana pada, we are shifting to kaivalya pada. That means it is time to harvest. If you want to harvest, first you have to cut down the crop. Whatever opinions, ideas, and conclusions you may have about other people and about yourself – now is the time to drop them. Everyone has the possibility to flower into a beautiful being. The more opinions, ideas, conclusions, and prejudices you have, the bigger the distance between you and that possibility. Allow yourself and everyone else a fresh start.

随着Bhogi Pongal(丰收节)的到来,这是一年中你可以烧掉陈旧包袱的时候。此时太阳正从南行(Dakshinayana)转为北行,而我们也从Sadhana Pada(修持阶段)进入到Kaivalya Pada(收获阶段)。如果你想收获,首先你要割下庄稼。无论你对他人、对自己有着怎样的看法和评判,现在是时候放下了。每个人都有着绽放成美丽存在的可能。你的看法、评判和偏见愈多,你离那个可能性就愈远。允许自己以及每一个人一个全新的开始。

 

There is a beautiful incident in the Ramayana. Previously, many unfortunate events had happened in Rama’s life. He got cheated out of his kingdom, had to retreat into the jungle, and lived a hard life. Then, his wife got kidnapped by Ravana. Out of love and concern for her, he walked all the way down south, gathered an army, crossed over to Sri Lanka, waged a war, defeated Ravana in battle, and slayed him.

在Ramayana(罗摩衍那/罗摩传,与摩诃婆罗多并列为印度两大史诗)中有一个美丽的故事。起先,很多不幸的事发生在Rama(罗摩)的生命中。他被自己的王国所欺骗,被迫遁入丛林,过着艰难的生活。之后,他的妻子被Ravana(罗波那)绑架。出于对妻子的爱和关怀,他一路南下并集结军队,穿越斯里兰卡,发动战争,最终打败并杀死了Ravana。

 

As you know, Ravana had ten heads. Rama had to cut off all the ten to finally kill Ravana. With the battle won, Rama said, “I want to go to the Himalayas and do penance, because I have committed a great sin. I have killed someone who was a great devotee of Shiva, a phenomenal scholar, a great king, a generous man.” The others were shocked. Lakshmana, his brother, said, “What are you talking about? He kidnapped your wife.” But Rama said, “Out of the ten heads of his, there was one that had great wisdom, piety, and devotion. I regret cutting off that head.”

如你所知,Ravana有十个头。Rama必须砍掉这十个头才能彻底杀死Ravana。当战争取得胜利,Rama说:“我要去喜马拉雅山忏悔,因为我犯了一个大罪。我杀死了一个人,这个人是一个虔诚的Shiva信徒,一名杰出的学者,一位伟大的国王,一个慷慨的人。”在场的人都很震惊。他的兄弟Lakshmana说:“你在说什么?他可是绑架了你的妻子!”但Rama却说道:“在他的十个头中,有一个头充满了智慧、虔诚和奉献。我后悔砍下那个头。”

 

The mistake people make is that, instead of identifying a quality, they condemn the individual.

人们的错误在于——不去看到一个人的闪光之处,而是去谴责他人。

 

Everyone has ten or more heads. One day, your head is full of greed, another day full of jealously, hatred, love, lust, beauty, or ugliness. Or you go through everything in one day. If you see someone in a moment of jealousy, you conclude he is a jealous person. If you see someone in a moment of greed, you conclude he is a greedy person. But actually, at different times, different heads are working in everyone. Everyone has at least one head of love, beauty, generosity, or compassion. The mistake people make is that, instead of identifying a quality, they condemn the individual.

每一个人都有着十个或十个以上的头。有一天你的头被贪婪所充满,另一天则被嫉妒、怨恨、爱、欲望、美丽或丑陋所充满。或者你在一天之内就经历所有这一切。如果你看到某人有一刻是充满嫉妒的,你就断定他是一个善妒的人。如果你看到某人有一刻是充满贪婪的,你就断定他是一个贪婪的人。但实际上,每一个人,在不同的时刻,都有着不同的头在作用。每个人都有至少一个充满爱、美丽、宽容或慈悲的头。人们的错误在于——不去看到一个人的闪光之处,而是去谴责他人。

 

What Rama was trying to say that no matter what horrible things Ravana had done, there was one aspect of him that was a tremendous possibility. Just follow this fundamental principle – if you see something wrong in someone, condemn that, not the person. If you bring this wisdom into your life, you will be free of baggage. When you do this to others, the same will happen to you.

Rama所要表达的是:无论Ravana做了多么不堪的事,他始终有一个面向蕴藏着巨大可能性。遵循这个根本原则——如果你觉得某人哪里做得不对,谴责那个错误,而非那个人。如果你将这一智慧带入你的生命中,你会从束缚中解脱。当你这样对待他人时,他人也会这样待你。

 

Someone once said, “Love is a thing that happens between a man and woman who do not know each other.” That is true only if you live a frivolous, judgmental life – a life without wisdom. Otherwise, the more you get to know someone, the more love and compassion should arise. When you know all their struggles, you know they are as human as you are.

有人曾说:“爱发生在彼此不了解的男女间。”如果你过的是一种肤浅而充满评判的生活——毫无智慧的生活,那么此言不虚。否则,你越了解一个人,就应该对他/她有越多的爱和慈悲。当你了解他们内心所有的挣扎,你就知道他们也是人,和你并无不同。

 

Rama did penance for having killed a man who had kidnapped his wife and had done many other terrible things. Still, Rama identified this one head that was beautiful about him. This is a man of great wisdom, which is why he is worshipped. He failed in many aspects of his life, but his failures never altered his wisdom and quality. No matter what life did to him, he stayed above that.

Rama为杀掉一个人而忏悔,即使那个人绑架了他的妻子,并做出过很多可怕的事。他认出了Ravana十个头中的那个美丽的头。这是个充满了伟大智慧的人,这就是为什么他会为世人所敬奉。他在生活的诸多方面都失败了,但他的失败不曾改变他的智慧和品质。无论生活如何待他,他始终超然物外。

 

Please do this with everyone around you – try to recognize that one drop of sweetness in even those people who you otherwise consider to be horrible.

请对你周围的每一个人这样做——试着在你认为很讨厌的人身上认出那一丝美好。

 

I want you to remember Rama’s example throughout the year. If you are sensible enough to identify the quality rather than condemn the person, before Guru Purnima comes and we shift to Dakshinayana, or the southern run of the sun, you should have reaped a rich harvest. A rose plant has more thorns than roses, but we still call it a rose plant because we recognize its beauty. A mango tree has more leaves than mangoes, but we still call it a mango tree because we recognize the sweetness of its fruits.

我想让你在这一整年里都能记得Rama的例子。如果你能足够敏锐地认出一个人的品质,而非谴责那个人,在Guru Purnima(上师满月节)到来以及太阳转为南行之前,你将收获满满。一株玫瑰花的刺比花多,但我们仍称其为玫瑰花,因为我们看到了它的美。一棵芒果树的叶子比果实多,但我们仍叫它为芒果树,因为我们认识到了果实的甜。

 

Every human being has at least one drop of sweetness in them. Why don’t we see this? Please do this with everyone around you – try to recognize that one drop of sweetness in even those people who you otherwise consider to be horrible. Only if you recognize it in others, it will reflect in you. On the other hand, if you see terrible things in other people, that is what will reflect in you. This does not mean you should become blind to everything. You see the leaves in the tree; you see the thorns in the rose bush – but you acknowledge the flower and the fruit. That is all you need to do. Let’s make this happen.

每个人的内在都有着至少一丝的美好。我们为何不去看到?请对你周围的每一个人这样做——试着在你认为很讨厌的人身上认出那一丝美好。只有当你在他人身上认出这一点,它才能从你的内在映照出来。换句话说,如果你在他人身上看到不好的一面,这不好的一面就会从你的内在映照出来。这并不是说你应该屏蔽掉一切。你看到芒果树上的叶子,看到玫瑰花丛的刺——但你依然认识到它们的果实和花朵。这就是你所需做的一切。让我们使之发生。

 

Love&Grace,

Sadhguru
