BBC:’Armani Communist’ divides China

0

BBC – When Liu Bo attended a regional communist party event as the official ambassador of local students it wasn’t his youthful demeanour which made the biggest impression.

Nor was it the remarks which the 14-year-old made to the Shenzhen People’s Political Consultative Conference, calling for the greater use of non-exam based assessments in the Chinese education system.

What made people stare, and what rapidly become a major topic of conversation as photos of Liu spread across Chinese social media this week, was what he was wearing.

慈悲的力量

这是一个佛门中的故事。一天,一个化缘的和尚走到了一个村庄,当时正是傍晚,天下起了雨。和尚敲开了一户大户人家的门,想借住一宿。开门的管 家一看是个和尚,问:“何事?” 和尚说:“雨大不能回寺庙,想在此借住一夜,偏房也行。”管家忙把这事告诉了主 人。 谁知主人拒绝了,管家把主人的意思告诉了和尚,并把和尚关在了门外。眼看雨越下越大,天越来越黑,和尚无处去,只好 在门楼里蹲了一宿。

天亮了,雨停了,管家打开门,一看和尚蹲在门楼下,衣服已经被雨水淋透,全身瑟瑟发抖,一副可怜的样子。和尚见有人 开门出来,便问:“这家主人叫什么名字?” 管家没加思索,便把老爷名字告诉了和尚。之后又觉蹊跷,便问: “你问 我家老爷名字干什么?” 和尚笑了笑,啥也没说,便回寺庙去了。

半年后,这家大户人家的老爷有个小妾,一天去庙里進香,忽然看到庙里大殿的柱子上,刻着她家老爷的名字,很是惊讶。 忙问身边的和尚:“我家老爷的名字为什么刻在庙里的柱子上?” 和尚说:“我们主持有一次出外化缘,傍晚赶上 了下 雨,想在一个大户人家借住一夜。可是,那家老爷不留宿,我家主持只好在外面门楼下蹲了一夜。回来后,我家主持沉默了好几天,之后便把这个名字刻在大殿的柱子上。”

“把我家老爷名字刻在柱子上,是不是一直没有忘记这个怨恨呢?在诅咒他呢?”“不是不是,” 和尚忙解释说:“我家主持说了:这位施主不留我住宿,一定是我前世造下了恶缘,没留下善报的因果,他不留我住宿,自然不是他的错,是 我的错,是我没留下善因,自然没有善果,我不怨恨他。我要把他的名字刻在庙里大殿柱子上,天天诵经,化解这份怨缘, 了解这份冤情,也让他子孙满堂,能够得福报。”

和尚的一番话,把老爷的小妾感动的留下了泪,她回家后,立即把这事告诉了老爷。几天后,老爷亲自到庙里向主持赔罪,并 一再的承诺:“以后庙里众僧每年吃的粮食,全部由我来供养。”

也许,我们每个人都会碰到类似的事情,但是,在对待事情的心态上,能不能有和尚的境界?这可不是嘴上说的。千百年来,人骨子里的理是:遇事找对方,修炼的理是:遇事找自己,自己被伤害时,能无怨无恨,善待对方,这真的不容易。

New gateways into the humanities for students “still fully molten as human beings”

Thomas Rowlandson’s view of the library of the Royal Institution in London, circa 1810

One day in the early spring of 2013, Alexander Rehding asked the students in his graduate seminar to join him in experiencing the sound of silence. As he led them through an exercise in deep listening, the students sat quietly for 15 minutes, becoming calm, and bending their attention to the sounds around them. “Over time, your listening experience fundamentally changes,” the Peabody professor of music said later. “You become much more attuned to the very quiet background noises that we normally just ignore. Many of the students report that, after a while, they stop trying to identify what the sounds are and where they are coming from. The sounds surround us, and everything becomes musical in a way.”
