僧侶「大來尚順」による、英語で読む法話。


Our Wide, Boundless World


In daily life, I wonder how many of us have had our eyes stolen by small modern-day rectangular electronic devices we call cell phones, electronic pads or laptops? On the train, in the office, even walking down the sidewalk, everyone is gazing down at the screen on their small devices, not paying any attention to the world around them.

Well, hey, look up at the sky and you will see the wider, real world! Even though I’m sure there are those who will say that the world you can see through an electronic device and the internet is a boundless world. Do you think this is true?

Unfortunately, I do not see the internet world as boundless because so much of the internet world is made up of untrue and created information. The internet world is quite small and narrow if we take out the trustable and true information.

In reality, we live in an immeasurable world in the wide, wide universe. However, we choose to live in a small and limited world of our own.

As we begin the New Year, let us look up and realize that our real world is so much bigger than what we know.

The Buddha’s teachings are sharing this truth with us. Let’s learn how to see and live in the wider, real world rather than just seeing the world through a small, restricted rectangular screen.

Happy New Year!

In Gassho


本来、広大な世界で生きているにも関わらず、自ら世界を狭め、小さな世界感の中で生きてるのが私たちではありませんか?顔を上げて、空を見てみましょう。そこには果てしない空、宇宙が広がっています。
仏教は、このことに気が付かせてくれる手助けをしてくれるのです。
