#CauseOfSamsara
#KarmicImprint
#How12NidanasExplainCycleOfLifeAndDeath


Question: “During the teaching on the 12 links of dependent origination, you mentioned that when triggered by imprints, karma is created as "feeling" progresses to "craving". You also mentioned that imprints are created at "becoming". Can you kindly explain the difference between both occasions and how they relate to each other? Is karma or imprint the cause of the spinning of the samsaric cycle, or both?”

▌Is karma and karmic imprint the cause of samsara?

Rinpoche’s answer: That’s why we call it a circle. Did the chicken come first or the egg? There’s no one answer – it’s like a circle. That’s why we call samsara a circle; it goes round and round.

In the 12 links of dependent origination, there are two karmic imprints. First there’s “ignorance” and “volition”; volition is the karmic imprint. Ignorance and volition are the cause. Based on these two, we have the eight processes in this life. Within these eight, the last one – “becoming” – is also a karmic imprint. This karmic imprint is a new one that’s based on the old karmic imprint. Then we are born again, and we die again. The last two – “birth” and “death” – are the result.

▌The four steps that turn stealing an apple into a karmic imprint

How do we understand this process? For example, to have the karma of stealing an apple, we need four things.

First, the intention of “I want to steal this apple”.

Then you have to create what we call the action. You look around, “Oh, nobody is here, I am going to steal an apple”. This is action.

Third, there is the object of an apple. If you look around and see no apple, you cannot create the karma of stealing an apple.

Fourth, you take the apple you see and put it in your pocket, and then you come out and think, “OK, I got it”. That moment is what we call “completion”.

The moment you know “I stole it, I got the apple”, the imprint of stealing the apple goes into the subconsciousness. That is a tiny seed.

▌The 12 nidanas of samsaric cycle, beginning with “ignorance”

First there is “ignorance”, because you did not recognise that stealing is not good. In the end, it’s no good for you, no good for everybody. So there is ignorance.

Then you steal, and that becomes the imprint. That’s the “volition”.

Then the imprint becomes a tiny seed in the stream of consciousness. Number three is “consciousness”.

Next is “name and matter”. The seed grows bigger and bigger into the mind and body – that’s number four. “Mind” refers to the subconsciousness, and “body” refers to the subtle body.

Number five, it comes into the “six senses”, such as the ear, nose, tongue, the whole body.

Number six is “contact”, when the senses come into contact with an object.

Number seven is “feelings”. That’s when the unpleasant sensations come. So from the karmic imprint of stealing comes suffering. That’s the karmic result – suffering.

Then number eight, “craving” arises from the suffering.

Then there’s “grasping”.

At number 10, we create new karma, what we call “becoming”.

Then you will be born again, that’s number 11 – “birth”.

And you get old and die, that’s number 12 – “old age and death”.

So samsara goes round and round and round like that.

#2024明就仁波切《心經》禪修指引_第四天摘要
#業力和印記,是輪迴的因?
#從十二緣起,看生死循環怎麼發生

有學生問:仁波切,在您教導「十二緣起」的時候,提到當印記觸發時,業力由於「受」產生發展到「取」;而另一方面,您也提到「印記」是在「生」時產生的,能不能解釋一下這兩者的區別,以及它們之間的關係? 「業力」或是「印記」是輪迴流轉的原因嗎?或者這兩者都是輪迴流轉的因?

▌業力和印記,是輪迴的因?

仁波切回答:這就像一個循環,就像問:「是先有雞呢?還是先有蛋?」這沒完沒了,其實就是一直在那邊循環著,沒有答案,這樣一個輪轉,我們就稱為「輪迴」,輪迴就是這樣,一直在那裡流轉著。

就「十二緣起」來說,其實就有兩種業的印記,開頭是「無明」跟「行」。「行」就是業印,而「無明」跟「行」就是因。基於「無明」跟「行」就產生了中間八個我們這一生經歷的過程;到了這八個中的最後一個,「有」這個部分,就形成新的印記了,基於舊的印記,又產生了新的印記,然後才會有「生」和「老死」,這就是結果。

▌「偷蘋果」要有四部分,才成業力印記

要怎麼理解這個中間的過程呢?可以舉例來說,比如說我們以「偷蘋果」為例來解說:「偷蘋果」這件事,它要成為一個業力,需要有四個部分組成的:

[一,動機:] 首先,你心中想要去偷,生起了的意願,有去偷的想法。

[二,行動:] 你就要採取行動,看看四下無人啊,你就去準備去偷。這就是行動。

[三,對境:] 第三,就是有蘋果出現,有蘋果這樣的對境條件讓你偷。

[四,完成:] 第四,你偷到了,你把它放進包包、放進自己的兜裡就走掉了,你知道「我偷成功了」,就在你想到「我偷蘋果得逞了」,就叫「完成」。

這樣,這個過程就完成了,從那一刻開始,「偷蘋果」這樣一個業印,就在你的潛意識當中種下去了。

▌從「無明」開始,啟動「十二緣起」的輪迴循環

[一,無明:]
一開始是「無明」,你沒認識到偷東西是不好的,不僅對自己不好,對所有人都不好。這是「無明」。

[二,行:]
你就這樣去偷了,因此而產生了印記。這就是「行」。

[三,識:]
接著,偷東西的業印就會發展到成為心續中的一個小種子。這就是「識」。

[四,名色:]
接下來,種子越變越大,就會進入心和身。這裡「心」指的是潛意識,而「身」指的是微細身。

[五,六入:]
第五個是「六入」,包括耳、鼻、舌、整個身體。

[六,觸:]
然後透過六識,你就有能力接觸到對境,這就是「觸」。

[七,受:]
當你接觸到,就會生起感受,這就是「受」。 這時,生起了不樂受。偷東西的業印產生了痛苦,而痛苦就是業果。

[八,愛:]
接著,對於遠離苦產生了貪愛。

[九,取:]
然後你會去執取它。

[十,有:]
然後慢慢就發展出業力,就是「有」。

[十一,生、十二,老死:]
這就導致再一次的「生」,跟「老死」。

這個循環不斷的流轉狀態,我們就叫做「輪迴」。

[註:十二緣起:1.無明、2.行、3.識、4.名色、5.六入、6.觸、7.受、8.愛、9.取、10.有、11.生、12.老死。]

#2024MeditationPracticeofHeartSutra_Day3Excerpt
#DebtIsEmptiness?
#RespectTheRulesOfRelativeTruth

Question: How do we understand the emptiness of our difficulties in daily life? For instance, we have a debt we are obliged to repay but don’t have the resources to repay it. Debt is real. How can we view it from the perspective of emptiness and open up a new possibility of dealing with it?

▌Understanding indebtedness from the perspective of emptiness

Rinpoche’s answer: It is like this glass of water. This water does not exist. But if you say, “Oh I don’t need to drink this water because it does not exist and my body does not exist”, what will happen? You will die.

But remember: emptiness is not nothing. Because of emptiness, water and the body can appear. The problem here is we don’t understand the union – not real yet appear. Even if you understand it now, there are still many layers. I mentioned yesterday that it is difficult to achieve full realisation. It will take a long time.

▌Appearances are dream-like and unreal, but must be respected

So until you are fully realised, you have to follow the relative rules. You have to drink water every day – it’s very important. It’s good for your relative body. Dream-like water is good for your dream-like body.

So if you have debt, you try your best to pay it back. Because on the relative level, debt exists and you exist. You have to repay it. But on the ultimate level, they are like a dream – not real.

▌View accords with the absolute truth, action accords with the relative truth

We say our action and view must join together. Our action should not follow the view, thinking there’s no need to drink water as everything is emptiness. You have not yet reached that level, now you are stuck on the relative level. If you don’t drink water, you will die.

Or if you don’t understand emptiness, you become tight – “this is right”, “this is wrong”, “this is true”. Then we follow samsara again and again.

So try to join your action and view together.

#2024明就仁波切《心經》禪修指引_第三天摘要
#欠債還錢,怎麼以空性看待?
#了解本質是空性,但尊重世俗諦的規則

有同學問:請問我們要如何理解「日常生活中真實存在的困難」的空性呢?比如我們欠了債卻沒有還,但是我們仍然有還債的義務,如何從空性的角度來看待,並且開闢一種新的可能性呢?

▌從空性觀點,看「欠債還錢」這件事

仁波切答:舉例來說,就像這杯水,水不實存,也許你認為:「我不需要喝水,因為水不實存,我的身體也不實存。」你認為自己不需要喝水,但是你的身體是需要喝水的,你不喝水,那會發生什麼事?你的身體就會死!

所以請記得:「空」雖然不是實有,是空性的,但並不等於「什麼都沒有,什麼都是空的」,正因為它是空性,所以水和身體都可以顯現。問題在於我們不了解空性和顯現的雙運——不真實卻有顯現。就算現在有些理解,但要完全了解有很多層次。我昨天提到要完全證悟並不容易,需要很長的時間。

▌顯相如夢非實,但不尊重就會出事

在沒有完全了悟的時候,就必須要尊重、遵循世俗諦的各種規則。你每天都要喝水——這很重要,水對你世俗的身體有益。這個「不實有、如夢般的水」對「不實有、如夢般的身體」是有益處的。

因此,有債務就要償還。因為在相對層面的世俗諦上,債務存在,你也存在。當然,在究竟層面來講,它們就像夢一般,不是真的。

▌有勝義諦的見地,也要有世俗諦的行為

這裡,我們要講到「行為」跟「見地」。行持和見地兩者要並行,當你的行持很想跟上見地而因此覺得:「哦,這一切都是空的,我不需要喝水」;但你還沒有達到那境地,現在還是卡在世俗層面上,如果不喝水就會死去。

然而,如果你不理解空性、沒有空性的見地,就會變得緊繃,認爲:「啊,這是對的、這是錯的、這是真的」,這樣又會陷入輪迴中不斷流轉。

所以我們的「行為」跟「見地」要並行。
