Talk philosophy to a fool 對牛彈琴

對牛彈琴 【duì niú tán qín】有一個叫公明儀的人給牛彈奏古雅的清角調琴曲,牛依然像先前一樣埋頭吃草。不是牛不要聽,是曲調不悅它的耳。公明儀於是用琴模仿蚊蟲和牛蠅的叫聲,以及失散的小牛的聲音。牛就擺動尾巴豎起耳朵,小步走並聽著音樂。 啟示: 對牛彈琴- 比喻對不懂道理的人講道理,是白費口舌;也常用來譏笑說話不看對象的人。 如社會上大多數人都不太懂和尚尼姑出家的原因?更弄不懂他(她)們天天在寺院裡幹什麼? 可也許對出家人而言,他們的思想境界是超常的,智慧是打開的,出家人知道對一般人講修道之理,好如對牛彈琴。 因為修道的人是明白了更多世間的理,如“因緣關係”,”業力輪報” 和“善惡有報”等等,明白了人生的真諦和意義。 所以我們要多破除自己思想上的舊觀念,常試著用發展的眼光來看待周圍的所見所聞。 Long ago, there was a famous musician named Gong Mingyi. He plays the zither very well. But , occasionally, he does some silly things. One day, he … Continue reading

拔苗助長

Translated 拔苗助長 【Bá miáo zhù zhǎng】 宋國有個人天天盼他的禾苗能長得快些,於是他一口氣把所有的禾苗往上拔了一節,然而禾苗全都枯死了。   啟示:拔苗助長-比喻不管事物發展的規律,強求速成,多此一舉的做法反而會把事情弄糟。 在現實生活中,家長們都有“望子成龍”的願望,到孩子們還不能接受太多知識的生理年齡時,家長就用“抢先教育”來要求孩子學這學那,這不但違背了儿童成长的客觀規律,還將造成對孩子們身心上的的双重伤害。 Once there was a farmer in the Song State.He went to see his crops everyday, afraid that his rice shoots wouldn’t grow tall. ” Shoots, grow fast please.” he would say … Continue reading
