Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra, Part 3

Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra, Part 3

[Series of Master Shen-Long expounding on the Prajna Paramita (Perfection of Transcendent Wisdom) Heart Sutra]

If you cannot remove the concept of “Ego – I”, no matter how good your supernatural ability is, it will not work; this is called “outflow”. Like a cup with a hole, no matter how much water you put into it, it is ineffective.

Currently our society is very mixed, there are all kinds where some have so-called supernatural powers or extra-sensory perception; however, most of them have outflows.

  1. A person exists with the ego of “I”.
  2. A person exists with greed.
  3. There is no resolution of a person’ problem with life and death.

In that case, we need to activate our observation directly and be clear about every phenomenon. How to observe this directly? You need to be especially clear.

Regardless what you are learning. It will generate residual effects.

What are residual effects? When you are not clear, you will walk down the wrong path. I have seen many people, where everyone tries very hard during cultivation practice seemingly to become a Buddha tomorrow, rushing forward continuously and incessantly, and thus, one rushes to the wrong place. The main reason for this is that one does not have Prajna (wisdom), and one’s mind un-composed.

Furthermore, Prajna is hugely different from knowledge and intelligence. Intelligence is when someone talks to you about anything, and you seemingly know it all, but you do not know its origin. For instance, the computer – we can access many different programs, and after entering the world of programs, it gets more and more amusing, but there is a kind of residual effect that makes you edgy. After 24 hours in it, you will go crazy because there is a kind of addiction is formed – this means it has become an obstruction.

What kind of obstruction? Your mind has become attracted to it and become lost into these computer programs.

When using Prajna (wisdom). Prajna, it is different. Prajna has no delusion. Prajna is for you to use these computer programs, and not be used by the programs. I use this method to explain this, and I believe everyone can understand this.

「我」的觀念如果不祛除,你怎麼樣有神通都沒有用,這個叫「有漏」。好像一個杯子打了一個洞,怎樣裝水都沒有效。

現在這個社會很亂,我們看到各式各樣的所謂神通也好,特異功能也好,大部份是「有漏」。第一,他有我;第二,有貪;第三,他生死無法解決。

所以在這個上面我們就要起「觀照」,怎樣觀?你要特別的清楚。

無論你學什麼,它有後遺症的。

什麼是後遺症?你不清楚的時候你就走錯了。所以我看過很多人,大家修行的時候都很努力,好像成佛就在明天,一直不停的往前衝。結果衝錯地方,他主要沒有「般若」,也就是自已心不定。

還有「般若」跟知識有很大的差別,這個跟聰明也有很大的差別,聰明是跟你講什麼,你好像什麼都知道,但是你沒有辦法知道它的來歷。譬如說:電腦,我們常常打電腦的程式設計,各式各樣。大家都好像進入這個世界以後,你會發現越來越有趣。但是它有個後遺症,它會讓你煩。你二十四小時在那裡面,你會發瘋的,但是它又有一種癮,這個代表說它有障礙。

什麼障礙?你的心被它吸引,你的心是迷在這個程式設計裡。

所以說如果是「般若」就不一樣,「般若」不是迷,「般若」是你用它,而不為它所用。所以我用這種方法解釋,我相信大家都懂。
