Perfection 完美

Perfection

Q: Guruji, An ‘Art of Living’ teacher once said that God created us and He is perfect. So, we are perfect. That’s believable. We are perfect, so shouldn’t an engineer’s work be perfect? How come it is not?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: 
The question is perfect and the answer is even more perfect. Everything in the universe is moving from one level of perfection to another level. Milk is perfect and when it turns into yogurt, yogurt is perfect. You take out cream from yogurt, and that is perfect, and then you make butter, and that is also perfect. This is one way of looking at it. The other side of looking at it is, the milk got spoil and you make cheese out of it. When yogurt got spoil, it became imperfect and you took butter out of it. This is another way to look at it. It all depends on how you look at it. It’s imperfection that gives value to perfection. Isn’t it so? How can you call something perfect? Because there is something which is not perfect. So, the existence of something which is not perfect is absolutely essential to understand something that is perfect. So, the imperfect makes the perfect, perfect!

完美

問:古儒吉,有個生活的藝術的老師說過是神創造了我們,祂是完美的。所以我們也是完美的。這個可以被接受。我們是完美的,那麼工程師的作品不是應該也是完美的嗎?可是為什麼它不是那樣的呢?
古儒吉:問題是完美的,而答案更完美。宇宙間的一切是從一個程度的完美邁向另一個程度的完美。牛奶是完美的,當它轉變成酸奶的時候,酸奶是完美的。你從酸奶裡取出奶油,而奶油也是完美的。然後你把它製成牛油,而這也是完美的。這是一種的看法。而另一種看法是,牛奶變壞了,你就把它製成芝士。當酸奶壞了,你從中取得牛油。這是另一種看法。要如何去看待一件事情,這都是取決於你。不完美帶出了完美的價值,對嗎?你要如何稱一樣東西是完美的?因為有其它不完美的東西所以一切不完美是不可缺少的,它讓我們去明白什麼是完美。所以不完美成就了完美,這就是完美!
