Message from His Holiness The Sakya Trizin:
Everyone wants to be happy, and the only way to find true peace and happiness is to follow the religious path. Equally, once we have engaged on the religious path, it is very important that we study, so that we can progress swiftly along it. There are many texts and scriptures that can help us deepen our understanding of the Dharma.
“The Elegant Sayings” is such a text. It is one of the most famous works by the great master Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltsen. In this book, the great scholar offers precious advice on how to live a virtuous life and how to avoid non-virtuous behavior.
His witty and to-the-point analysis of what is noble and scholarly and what is foolish and untoward is an important teaching on what is to be adopted and what is to be rejected before one can become a true Dharma practitioner.
The study of the Dharma is a hugely meritorious activity that benefits not only oneself but also everyone that surrounds one. I truly rejoice that a program of Dharma study has been put in place at Sakya Tenphel Ling, and I fervently pray that many practitioners will participate in it and thus make great strides along the path to enlightenment, for the sake of all beings.
人人欲得安乐,而觅得真正安乐的唯一方法,便是踏上宗教修行之道。一旦开始修行,就必须闻习正法,以便在修持上能突飞猛进,这点至关重要。有许多法本与经典能助我们深入法义。
伟大的上师萨迦班智达贡嘎嘉赞闻名遐迩的著述—《萨迦格言》便是这样的一部教典。在这部典籍中,大班智达阐明了应如何扬善去恶,成办贤善圆满的人生。这是极为珍贵的教诲。
其教言字字珠玑,句句妙智,鞭辟入里地点明了何者为智,何者为愚,何者高尚,何者非善。这项重要的教法,开示了是非善恶,令行者由此而知取舍,进而成为一名真正的修行人。
听闻、学习佛法乃是殊胜的善行,不仅于己有利,亦能利益身边的人。对于释迦寺能开办这项佛学课程系列,本人由衷随喜,并也殷切地祈愿许多的修行人能踊跃参与,使自己在成佛之道上能一日千里,以利乐一切有情众生。
谨此献上祝福
