Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra, Part 7

Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra, Part 7

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

A person like us who is unable to be disillusioned with all, we are precisely incapable of doing analysis. For instance, if you like someone or dislike someone, you need to analyze this person: does not this person’s physical body not composed of carbohydrates?

We are largely unfamiliar with this concept. If you apply scientific concepts to live your life, your life will be very pleasant. But a scientist cannot escape from one thing, which is their birth and death; he will eventually die, and even if he has studied it thoroughly, he still will not be able to control his death and rebirth. Of course, we have also heard many reports, for instance: it is believed that if you rapidly freeze the body and wait 500 to 600 years, then endow it with life, maybe they will come alive again. While this theory sounds funny, it expresses how scientists are starting and trying to resolve the problem of life and death. They do not know that solving “life and death” is a dream. It is because there is no life and death.

Do you not see we are going through life and death daily?

We get up from bed in the morning, and at that time thought arises, and then no thought exists; when we go to bed at night it is the same way, where a thought arises, then no thought exists. For 24 hours, we are go through the condition of life and death.

Why does this phenomenon exist? It is regarding matters you still unable to understand and unable to see it clearly.

我們這個人看不破,就是無法分析。譬如說:你喜歡一個人,你討厭一個人,你要分析這個人,他的肉體不是碳水化合物?

主要是我們對這種觀念太陌生了。如果你用科學家的觀念來生活,你會很愉快。但是科學家逃不過他有生死,他要死亡;他還沒有研究到徹底,他對生死不能控制。當然我們也聽過有很多,譬如說:這個屍體急速冷凍,等到五百、六百年以後再附予他生命,可能這個人又復活。這個理論雖然好笑,但是表示科學界開始想要解決生死。但他不知道解決生死是一場夢,因為沒有生死。

你看我們每天不是都生死?

我們早上起來,一個念頭生,一個念頭沒有。晚上睡覺也是,一個念頭生,一個念頭沒有。二十四小時都是生死。這個現象為什麼會有?就是你對事情還看不通,還不是很清楚。
