3.上帝是中性的

3. The Greatest Creator is the Neutral

上帝是唯一的,上帝是中性的。

The Greatest Creator is unique and exclusive, and the Greatest Creator is also neutral.

人分男女、动物分公母、植物分雌雄,那么上帝呢?

There are men and women and male and female animals and plants, so what of The Greatest Creator?

我们绝对不能说上帝是男的、或女的、或公的、或母的、或雄的、或雌的。因为如果我们说上帝是男的,那么必然有一个女上帝与上帝相对应,这就破坏了上帝的唯一性。

We can never say The Greatest Creator is male or female because if that were so, then there would have to be a Greatest Creator of the opposite gender to be the opposite, which would dampen the uniqueness and exclusivity of the Greatest Creator.

用对立统一的两极也不能去认识上帝,也就是说,我们不能说上帝是真的、或假的、或善的、或恶的、或美的、或丑的,因为如果我们说上帝是善的,那么必然有一个恶的上帝与善的上帝相对应,这同样也破坏了上帝的唯一性。

Nor can we understand the Greatest Creator by using the “bipolarity” in the principle of the unity of opposites. That is to say, we can not define the Greatest Creator as true or false, good or evil, or beautiful or ugly, because if we define the Greatest Creator as good, then there would have to be an evil and opposite Greatest Creator as the opposite of the good Greatest Creator, which would again dampen the uniqueness and exclusivity of the Greatest Creator.

物有物性、兽有兽性、人有人性、佛有佛性、神有神性。那么,上帝属什么性呢?

上帝无性,也就是说,上帝没有物性、没有兽性、没有人性、没有佛性、没有神性。把上帝定义在任何一个生命区域内都是不正确的。

Everything, including animals, humans, Buddha, and God, has its respective nature. Then, of what nature is the Greatest Creator? The Greatest Creator is without nature, which means the Greatest Creator does not have the nature of matter, animals, humans, Buddha, or Gods. It is not at all correct to classify the Greatest Creator into any section of LIFE.

说某某人有兽性,肯定是在贬低他;说佛有人性,肯定是在贬低佛;说神有佛性,肯定是在贬低神;说上帝有物性、或兽性、或人性、或佛性、或神性,肯定贬低了上帝。所以,上帝无性,或者可以说,上帝是中性的。

If we were to say that a certain person has the nature of an animal, then we would be degrading him or her. To say that the Buddha has the nature of humans is to degrade the Buddha. Such would be the case to say that a God has the nature of Buddha or that the Greatest Creator has the nature of matter, animals, humans, Buddha, or a God. As a result, The Greatest Creator has no nature. The Greatest Creator is neutral.

在此,我不得不谈谈“奎师那知觉运动”,因为这个运动牵扯到上帝。

It is imperative we discuss the Kirtan and the Bhakti movement because is involves the Greatest Creator.

奎师那和奎师那知觉源自印度古老的智慧经典,现被一些有灵性的大师们继承了下来,最杰出的奎师那知觉运动的领袖是圣帕布帕德,该运动有许多闪光的智慧,它注重的是人的灵性层面,而不是人的物质肉体层面。这个运动提倡的许多东西是很有价值的,是可以借鉴的。

Kirtan and Kirtan responsory are originated from the traditional Indian wisdom literatures, which have been inherited by some masters with spiritual nature. The most outstanding leader of the Kirtan and the Bhakti movement is Srila Prabhupada. The Movement shines with wisdom, focusing on the spiritual features, instead of the material or flesh attributes of human beings. Many of its contents are valuable and worthy of being adopted.

但我们必须清楚谁是奎师那。根据圣帕布帕德的许多讲义,我们得知奎师那是宇宙至尊神,这个可以接受,但他还说,奎师那是唯一的,是“万源之源”,谁能是唯一的?谁能是“万源之源”?只有上帝是唯一的,只有上帝是万源之源,这就明确地表明,奎师那就是上帝。

But we have to know who is Kirtan. According to the many lecture sheets of Srila Prabhupada, we know that Kirtan is the Supreme God of the Universe, which is acceptable. However, he also said that Kirtan was sole and only and the “source of all sources”. Who can be sole and only? Who can be the “source of all sources”? Only The Greatest Creator is. So we can conclude that Kirtan is The Greatest Creator.

那么,奎师那是不是真正的上帝呢?

Then, is Kirtan really The Greatest Creator?

在奎师那知觉运动讲义“神的定义”中圣帕布帕德说:“。。。。。。当奎师那在这个地球上显现的时候,他有16108位妻子,每一位妻子都住在用大理石筑成的镶满珠宝的宫殿里,房间里摆放着象牙和黄金做成的家具,到处是一片富丽堂皇。。。。。”

In his lecture sheet ‘Definition of the God’ in the Kirtan responsory , Srila Prabhupada said, “When Kirtan showed up on the Earth, he had 16,108 wives, each of whom lived in the marble palaces decorated with jewels and equipped with furniture made of ivory and gold, demonstrating extreme splendid.”

这就是上帝吗?

So is this The Greatest Creator?

不是!

Of course not.

上帝是中性的,既不是男性,也不是女性,上帝怎么会有16108位妻子?为什么不说奎师那有16108位丈夫?这显然是男尊女卑思想的反映。再说,上帝霸占那么多妻子干什么?什么叫“荒淫无道”?用人的思维和肉体欲望给上帝创造这么多妻子,到底是歌颂上帝呢,还是亵渎上帝呢?

Being neutral, The Greatest Creator is neither male nor female. How could The Greatest Creator have 16,108 wives? Why don’t we say Kirtan have 16,108 husbands? Evidently, it is the idea of male superiority. Moreover,The Greatest Creator was much too libidinous if it really had so many wives. Are we extolling or desecrating The Greatest Creator when we generate so many wives for it with the mentality and the lust of flesh of human beings?

奎师那的16108位妻子“都住在用大理石筑成的镶满珠宝的宫殿里,房间里摆放着象牙和黄金做成的家具。”这简直是俗人把自己的意志强加给了上帝,大理石、珠宝、象牙、黄金这些东西在凡俗人的眼中是珍贵的,难道上帝特别喜欢这些东西吗?

The wives of Kirtan lived in the “marble palaces decorated with jewels and equipped with furniture made of ivory and gold, demonstrating extreme splendid”. In fact, the laymen have imposed their own wills on The Greatest Creator. Would The Greatest Creator like marbles, jewels, ivory and gold simply because these things are precious in the eyes of the common?

一句话,奎师那不是上帝!

In a word, Kirtan is not The Greatest Creator.

奎师那知觉就是爱神,达到灵性与神的和谐统一。但既然奎师那不是上帝,却贴上了上帝的标签,那么,奎师那知觉就是一种相当危险的知觉,不得不防。

Kirtan responsory is the goddess of love and is to reach the harmonious integrating spiritual nature and god. Nevertheless, we have to be cautious about the Kirtan , who is not The Greatest of Creator but is labeled so, thus the Kirtan responsory is extremely dangerous.
