「大光明」照亮我的童年

我的媽媽是一九九九年接觸菩提禪修的,從小我就聆聽著媽媽講述著她在菩提禪修的親身受益,以及許多神奇而不可思議的故事,一直以來我是她最好的聽眾,這也是我與菩提禪修的緣起。在我童年的記憶中,我眼中所看到的景象都是雙重的。直到一九九三年,我五歲的時候,醫生檢驗發現原來我的左眼是弱視(Lazy eye)。為了輔助治療,那時我每天必須戴著一副醜陋的黑眼罩,每天上學成為我的煩惱,面對同學們的嘲笑,我一次次地強忍著內心的不情願。

二〇〇〇年的一日,我又去做眼科檢驗,醫生皺著眉對媽媽說:「治療這麼久,她的視力仍不見好轉。三個月以後,如果還是一樣,就要安排她到一間特殊矯正眼睛的學校。」

後來,在一次偶然的機會裡,我見到了「金菩提禪師」,我記得很清楚,「禪師」用他柔和的眼看著我說:「不要緊,沒事的!要多修練『大光明修持法』。」從那天起,每天放學後的黃昏,或假日的早晨,我都會在媽媽的督促下練功。每次修練後,感覺頭腦特別清晰,眼睛也放鬆了許多。

很快地,又到了回診見醫生的日子,只記得醫生難以置信地說:「怎麼好得那麼快?您女兒已不需要去矯正學校,也不用戴眼罩了。」聽到醫生的話,我很開心。這是我家的大喜事啊!

願..我是陽光,溫暖他人

我從小就很害羞,人多的場面很容易緊張。在禪師一次次的鼓勵下,我鼓起勇氣在眾多人面前唱歌、講話。很快的,我克服了害羞。從此,「我最自信」這句來自《金菩提聖經》的四個字一直激勵著我,自信已在我內心深處扎根,讓我在未來學校裡、社團裡,不論是上台演講,還是播音廣播,都能侃侃而談,表現優異。

菩提禪修這個大家庭中,伴隨我走過人生的十四年。我深深體悟,這一路都是在藥師佛的吉祥庇蔭下成長。每當我微閉雙眼,沉醉在「大光明」的境界裡時,我會觀想到天空、海洋、光明,感覺到宇宙的浩瀚無邊,感覺到自己的渺小如塵。

「金菩提禪師」的開示,更讓我懂得了很多生活上做人做事的道理。

禪師說:「年輕人要拚命做事,心胸要像宇宙般寬廣,每一天要快樂,也要給周圍的人帶來快樂。」我也聽話照做。我在工作中認真勤奮、敢於承擔的做事態度讓我深受老闆的器重。

我漸漸懂得內心要時時刻刻保持恭敬、感恩、包容。

我更期許未來,要繼續努力,讓自己能力具足,去溫暖、幫助更多需要幫助的人。

「Greater Illumination」 Brightened up my Childhood

My mum is with Bodhi Meditation since 1999. From young, I have been listening to mum on the many benefits she received personally at Bodhi Meditation, as well as many other miraculous testimonials. I remained her most loyal audience and thus began my association with Bodhi Meditation. I remembered during my childhood days, my eyes captured double images. In 1993, when I was 5 years old, my doctor discovered that I had “lazy eye’ syndrome in the left eye. As part of the treatment process, I had to put on a pair of ugly goggles. This soon became my daily phobia as I was jeered often by my classmates and had to restrain my urge to abandon these ugly goggles.

One day, in Year 2000, I went again to examine my eyes. The doctor frowned and told my mum, “She has not shown improvement in her eyesight after such a long treatment. If there is no further improvement in another 3 months, it is advisable to enroll her in a special school to correct her vision.”

Later, by chance I met Master JinBodhi. I remember clearly Master looked at me gently and said, “Don’t worry, it will be ok! You should practice MGI (meditation of greater illumination) frequently. Since then, I practiced MGI under my mom’s supervision in the evenings after school and in the mornings on holidays. I felt my mind was very clear and my eyes a lot more relaxed after each practice.

Soon, it was time to have another eyes examination. I remembered the doctor said in an unbelievable tone, “How did the corrections happen so quickly? Your daughter does not need to go to the special school, nor does she need the goggles.” I was very happy to hear this. It was a big joyous moment for my whole family.

I wish.. I was the sunlight, to warm up others..

I was a shy girl since young and I was uneasy amongst crowds. With repeated encouragement from Master, I plucked up my courage to sing and express myself in front of the crowd. Soon, I overcame my shyness and continued to motivate myself chanting “I am most confident!”, a phrase from the Master’s Golden Words for his students. I developed strong self confidence and I participated in various oral presentation and mass communication events, both in school and in social settings. I was able to express myself fluently and perform well in these events.
I grew up in the extended family of Bodhi Meditation and have practiced 14 years to date. I have a deep realization that I had grown up and walked the path with the auspicious blessings of Medicine Buddha. Whenever I close my eyes and immerse into the meditative state of GI, I can visualize the sky, ocean, brightness and can feel the immensity of the universe and the insignificance of self.

I learnt wisdom to deal with life issues from Master’s Dharma talks. Master had said, “Youngsters! work hard and be broad minded, as broad as the universe. You should stay happy everyday and bring happiness to others around you.” I practiced what I learnt from the Master. At work, my diligence and responsible attitude has won trust and praises from my superiors.

Increasingly, I learnt to embrace the virtues of respect, gratitude and tolerance. I have great hope for the future, and will continue to work hard and build my competence to bring warmth to reach out to those in need of help.
