THE LOVE OF THE IGNORANT AND THE ANGER OF THE ENLIGHTENED 无知的爱和开悟者的怒气

THE LOVE OF THE IGNORANT AND THE ANGER OF THE ENLIGHTENED
 
The love of the ignorant can be harmful yet even the anger of the Enlightened is not harmful. It can be only good!
An example is the school at the Art of Living Ashram in Bangalore. 250 children are enrolled but only 200 come to class on any given day. Fifty children don't show up. Why? They cry at home, "Mother, I don't want to go to school."

The mother says, "Oh, la la, don't cry . . . ok." She thinks, "No child in the world is like my child." And so she sticks up for the child and begins to speak for him. She does not see the teacher's point of view. The mother asks the teacher, "Why are you not teaching my child properly? He is so innocent, so lovely." So, what happens -- the child grows up spoiled. The love in the mother's ignorance has spoiled the child. The child will never learn the alphabet, never learn to read or write, but the mother says, "Oh, never mind, there are sheep to look after and fields to tend." The mother's love in ignorance has spoiled the child.

The anger of the Enlightened is a blessing. There are many instances of this in the Puranas. Once a Master was traveling in the middle province of India with a disciple following him a few yards behind. Some boys who were rude, rough, and abusive began to throw stones and tease the disciple calling him names. This went on for some time as the boys followed the Master and the disciple. They came to a river. The Master and the disciple got into a boat in order to cross. The boys got in another boat which started to sink in the middle of the river.

The Master slapped the disciple across the face. The disciple was so surprised as he had not said a word back to the boys in response to their taunts. He had been such a good disciple and yet the Master had slapped him!
The Master said, "It is your fault. You are responsible for their boat sinking. You did not respond to their abuse. Nature has now punished them in a worse way because you did not have enough compassion to quell their insults."
The slap that the Master gave took away the karma of this event such that it would not be carried into the future of the boys. It also served to take away any little bit of joy the disciple may have felt at seeing the boys' boat sink! Thus, it also took away the karma of the event for the disciple. So, the anger of the Enlightened is a blessing!


无知的爱和开悟者的怒气

 无知的爱会比开悟者的怒气来得更有杀伤力。开悟者的发怒只会带来好的!

比如说生活的艺术班格洛静心所有250个孩子入学,可是每一天只有200个孩子会来。50个没有来。为什么呢?他们在家里哭道『妈妈,我不要去上学』。妈妈就会说『呜啦啦别哭别哭,好吧那就别上吧』。她在想『世上没有一个孩子是像我的孩子的』。所以她就纵容他,并开始为他说话。她并没有看到老师们的看法。那母亲会问老师『为什么你没有把我的孩子教好?他是那么的无辜,那么的可爱。』结果怎么啦?结果孩子长大后就被宠坏了。爱在母亲的无知下变就把孩子宠坏了。孩子因此没学会字母,也没有学习阅读和写字,但是妈妈还是说『没关系,还有羊儿和草原可以看管』。母亲无知的爱把孩子宠坏了。

开悟者的怒气却是个祝福。在普兰经(Puranas)里就有很多的是实例。有一次有位大师在印度中心的省份游走,他的门徒就在后面不远处跟随着他。一些无礼,粗鲁,和具有侵犯性的男孩们开始向门徒丢石头,并开始用一些名字来挑逗他。这些男孩们就这样跟着这位大师和门徒好一阵子。直到他们来到河边。大师和他的门徒就上了一艘船要度过那河。男孩们也上了另一艘船。结果当他们去到河中央的时候,男孩们的船就开始沉没了。

结果大师就打了那门徒一个耳光。门徒很惊讶,因为面对男孩们的嘲热讽他可是一句都没有回嘴。他是个那么好的门徒可是大师却给了他一巴掌!大师就说道『
这都是你的错!你要对那些孩子们的沉船负责任。都是因为你没有对他们的嘲弄做出反应,所以他们才会得到最坏的惩罚。这都是因为你没有足够的慈悲心去平息他们的侮辱。

大师的那一巴掌带走了那些男孩们的业力,以至于他们不需要把它带到未来。这一巴掌也带走了门徒因为看到孩子们沉船而升起的那一丁点喜悦。而从这一巴掌也带走了门徒在这个事件里的业力。所以开悟者的怒气是一个祝福!
