记得从读中学时期开始,我就与胃痛打交道。如果因忙碌超过了用餐的时间而不吃饭,我的胃马上就会痛,因此我身边总会带着胃药以防万一。有时疼痛起来,吃最强效的胃药也要连续吃两、三次才能起作用。这虽然不是个致命的病,但它发作起来真的让我很难受。

经家人介绍,我在2019年11月参加了“菩提禅修的八天半健身班”。说真的,我并不是为了改善胃痛,而是为了能够放松身心灵而来上课的。日复一日的忙忙碌碌,总让我感到身心疲惫不堪,常想好好地休息。我希望能够从禅修中获得智慧,活得更健康快乐。

课程的第一天当我踏进禅堂时,就感受到关怀组长们的亲切友善和禅堂宁静的氛围。我心想应该是找到了一个适合自己放松身心的地方了。

第二天,我发现食欲开始减少。到了第三天,我就没什么食欲,不想吃早餐和午餐。关怀组长说我这种情况可能是辟谷(辟谷:不觉得饿或吃得很少,精神还很好),如果不想吃就不要勉强自己。早午两餐都不吃,那我的胃痛不就会发作吗?当时便想起我在《禅修与健康》杂志上看到一些学员在禅修班后疾病好转的案例,曾质疑真的这么夸张有效吗?于是我想借此机会不妨试试辟谷,希望亲身印证禅修的功效。到了傍晚我都没有吃东西,但为了保险起见,我晚餐还有吃些水果。怀着既兴奋又忐忑的心情,我的胃痛在这一天竟然没有发作!

就这样,不吃早午餐,晚餐只吃水果的尝试就一直从第三天持续到第九天。这七天下来我两餐都没吃,胃一点都不痛,让我见证了原来其他受益者的实例真的并不夸张!困扰我多年的胃痛问题奇迹般地解决了,我的内心暗自窃喜!在这期间,我也注意到自己的精神比以往更充沛,更有活力。

通过这几天修练“无量大光明修持法”和“菩提清净观想法”,我觉得自己慢慢地沉淀下来,内心少了以往的急躁和不耐烦,可多了一份平静。在班上我每天最期待的是金菩提宗师的开示视频。我由衷地敬仰宗师总是能以幽默、轻松的方式,深入浅出地带出许多生活中的例子,告诉我们如何接人待物、从平凡的生活中汲取快乐。能够进入菩提禅堂,是我的福分!

注:禅修的效果会因人而异。菩提禅修不鼓励学员未经医生同意自行减药或停止服药。

I remember I have had gastric pains since my secondary school days. If I was too busy and missed my regular mealtime, my gastric pain would act up. As such, I would always have the medication with me as a precaution. Sometimes, the pain could be so severe that it would only be relieved after two to three doses of the strongest medication. Even though this is not a life-threatening condition, the pain can be unbearable at times.

I attended the 8.5-Day Health & Happiness Retreat in November 2019 upon my family’s recommendation. Honestly, my main objective was not to relieve the gastric issue but to learn how to relax my body and mind. Due to my hectic lifestyle, I had been feeling very drained and was constantly wanting to have a good rest. I hoped meditation can help me to become wiser, and I can be happier and healthier.

When I stepped into the centre on day one of the retreat, I could already feel the warmth and friendliness of the care group leaders, as well as the peaceful environment of the centre. I was quite certain I have finally found the right place to relax my mind and body.

On day two, I realised my appetite had started to decrease and by day three, I barely had any appetite for breakfast and lunch. My care group leader shared with me that I could be experiencing spontaneous fasting (spontaneous fasting: do not feel hungry or eating very little food, but still feels energetic) and I could choose not to eat if I really didn’t feel like doing so. I was apprehensive due to my underlying history of gastric pain, yet I also recalled the testimonials I’ve read from the Meditation and Health magazines where I doubted if meditation really helped relieved them of their symptoms. Hence I decided to give it a shot hoping to be a witness to the benefits of meditation. I persisted without taking my meals for the day but to be on the safe side, I had some fruits for dinner! Surprisingly, my gastric pain did not flare up at all!

So from day three to day nine, I did not have breakfast and lunch, and only had some fruits for dinner. I missed two meals for seven days but I did not experience any gastric pain. There was no exaggeration in the testimonials I read! I was secretly pleased that the gastric pain which had been bothering me for years is miraculously resolved! During this period, I also noticed that I am more energetic than before.

Through the many Bodhi Meditation practices such as “The Meditation of Greater Illumination” and “The Meditation of Purity”, I realised I have calmed down, and in place of the impatience, there is a sense of peace in my heart. During the retreat, I was always looking forward to more dharma teachings from Grandmaster JinBodhi, and felt so grateful for how Grandmaster would use humour and practical life examples to teach us the valuable lessons of how to treat people, and attain happiness through simple yet effective methods. I have been very blessed to be able to learn and benefit so much under Grandmaster JinBodhi’s guidance.

Individual results of practice may vary. Bodhi Meditation does not advocate reduction or discontinuation of medication without seeking a doctor’s advice.
