5.上帝公正

5. The Greatest Creator is Impartial

上帝是唯一的、上帝无定形、上帝是中性的,所以,上帝是公正的。

Since the Greatest Creator is unique, exclusive, amorphous, and neutral, it must also be impartial.

一个法庭,若被好人控制,坏人都得倒霉,若被坏人控制,好人都得遭殃;若被无产阶级控制,资产阶级就要受罪,若被资产阶级控制,无产阶级就要受苦;若被神佛控制,魔鬼就会受制,若被魔鬼控制,神佛就将被压制。只有中性的,不偏不倚的,才是最公正的。

If a court were controlled by a good judge, then every criminal would be punished, but if it were controlled by a bad one, many innocents would suffer. If it were controlled by proletariats, capitalists would have a hard time, and vice versa. If it were controlled by a God or Buddha, evil would be constrained, and so on. The neutral, unaffiliated, and non-party is the least partial.

阳光普照大地,并没有专照某些人,而是一视同仁地照在了众人身上;空气充满地球,“好人”“坏人”都可以自由呼吸;地球上设置了充足的水源,使你我他都可以用最低廉的价格获得对生命至关重要的水,这是多么地公正公平啊!

Sunshine is impartial because it casts itself on all people. The earth’s air is breathed by both good and bad people. Water, which is vital for LIFE, is abundant at a very affordable price to everyone. So the Greatest Creator is fair and impartial.

假如上帝不是公正的,不这样安排阳光、空气、水源,有些人一定会象霸占田地,矿山那样霸占阳光、空气和水源,我们还有活路吗!

If the Greatest Creator were biased and did not allocate the sunshine, air, and water this way, some people would control them just as they occupy the land and mines. How could the rest of us survive?

上帝的另一公正之处是:不论什么人,都得死亡。

假如有权有势的人都不死,都能长命千岁,万寿无疆,穷人还有希望吗!

所以,任何一种想让部分人益寿延年,老而不死的想法和做法都是与上帝的公正背道而驰的,都是注定要失败的。

The Greatest Creator is also impartial because everyone dies. If the privileged could live for thousands of years or even for eternity, the poor would be hopeless. Thus, any thought or practice which hopes to give immortality to a certain fraction of people is in conflict with the impartiality of the Greatest Creator and can never be realized.

人类试图消灭疾病,想把霍乱、伤寒、天花、鼠疫、癌症等等消灭掉,简直是在瞎捣乱,是在好心办坏事,是在给上帝添乱。你消灭一种,上帝不得不再创造一种,爱滋病、非典、特种空气分子病等,看你人类有能耐,还是上帝有能耐!

The human beings have tried to eliminate the diseases, such as cholera, typhoid, smallpox, plague and cancers. It is really a naughty behaviors causing trouble for the Greatest Creator. For each disease eliminated, the Greatest Creator has to generate a new disease to take its place, such as HIV/AIDs, SARS, special air molecules disease, etc. We will have to see who is more powerful, man or the Greatest Creator?

因为不这样,地球就承受不了。试想,若疾病不消灭一些人,若地球上曾经生存过的人都活着,今天的我们还有足够的地方生存吗?!就象一个美丽的公园,进去的人总得不断出去吧,总得让后来的人也进去观赏观赏吧,你进去了就不想出去,若大家都这么想,这个公园能容纳得了吗?后来者都无法进去,那对后来者公平吗?!

The reason is that the Earth cannot sustain so many people if the Greatest Creator does not generate new diseases which kill some people. If all the people on the Earth keep living for ever, do we still have enough space to live? It is the same case with a pretty garden. If all the visitors stay inside and do not leave, how can the other visitors come in and enjoy? Is it fair for the late comers if they are kept out?

有些人总希望“善良”的人得到比“邪恶”的人更多的东西,总希望上帝把“邪恶”的人都打入地狱,若不这样,认为上帝就是不公正的。

Some people are always hoping that the “good people” can get more than the “evil people”, and that the Greatest Creator should send the “evil people” to the hell. If the Greatest Creator fails to do so, it would be unfair.

这种天真的想法纯粹是人的感情用事。很少有人认为自己是邪恶的,不善良的,实际上,只要你是人,你就是邪恶的。你杀死动物,吃它们的肉,难道不是邪恶吗?当你宰杀动物之时,对动物们无助的嘶鸣、无奈的抗议、生离死别的恐惧无动于衷、举着明晃晃的刀子把利刃插入它们的胸膛或割断它们的喉官,对动物们来讲,你绝对不是善良之辈。

Such naive idea is simply the sentimental wish. Few people would think they themselves are evil or bad. But the fact is that all people are evil. Aren’t you evil when you slaughter the animals and eat their meat? When you slaughter them mercilessly regardless of their helpless cry, protest and fear, when you stab the shining knife into their chests or cut off their throats, you are not a kind person at all for the animals.

吃肉与参与宰杀并没有太大区别,吃肉本身就是不善良的表现。佛教徒为什么不吃肉?就是为了减少再造孽的机会,死后能进入更高级的生命空间。

There is no difference between eating meat and slaughtering animals. Meat-eating is the bad behavior itself. Why Buddhists would not eat meat? They are just avoiding re-committing sins to enter the senior life space after death.

凡吃肉的都不是善良的。或许有人认为,猪是我自己养大的,宰杀它、吃它的肉是合情合理的。是吗?自己养的就可以任意宰割吗?子女是父母养大的,父母就可以……这种道理能通吗?!

All those eating meat are not good. Maybe some people think that it is sensible to slaughter the pig and eat its meat because the pig is raised by themselves. But is it really sensible? Does raising the pig justify slaughtering it? The kids are raised by their parents. Can they be …, too? Does it really make sense?

注:我在这里谈吃肉等问题,是从生命平等,是从成佛的角度出发的,我并不反对吃肉,我自己也吃肉,这就是说,我自己也不是善良之辈。

Notes: I talk about the issue of meat eating from the perspective of “all life is equal” and becoming Buddha. I am not opposed to eating the meat. In fact, I am a meat eater, too. So I am not a good person.

不吃肉是一种善良的表现,我们提倡素食主义。

Refusing to eat the meat is what good people will do. We advocate vegetarianism.

但是,人人都拒绝吃肉,人人都成佛了,就违背了生命的循环。人类在地球上生存是有目的的,人类是生命环节上的一个链条,缺少这个链条,许多空间的生命就没有了后来者,最终会趋向终结,地狱不存在了,天堂也就失去了存在的价值,人间没人了,仙界也会消失,那么,人人都象佛教徒那样,不吃肉、不结婚、不生育,人类不就要断子绝孙吗?!这可不是上帝对生命的安排。

But if all the people refuse to eat meat and become the Buddha, it will break the life cycle. The human beings have their duties to live on the Earth. They are part of the life chain. Without this part, the life of many spaces will not have carried on and end in extinction. There will be no Hell, thus no Heaven. There will no mortal world, thus no fairy land. If all the people do not eat meat, get married, have babies, just like Buddhists do, there will not be the future generations. This is not what the Greatest Creator wants.

顺便说几句,信仰佛教绝对是正确的,是有光明前程的,但不结婚生育,是否正确?是否与上帝的目的背道而驰?

By the way, it is absolutely right and promising to believe in Buddhism. But is it also justifiable not to get married and have babies? Is it in line with the intention of the Greatest Creator?

在佛教的历史上,每当佛教鼎盛的时候,必然要来一次毁灭性的打击,为什么?为什么几千年了,佛教只能维持生存,而无法普照全球?主要原因不在于佛理不通,而在于修行的方式有问题。

If we look at the history of Buddhism, we will find that each time when the Buddhism is prosperous, there would be a devastating attack on it. Why? Why such an ancient religion can only maintain its survival without being disseminated across the whole world? The problem does not lie in the Buddhism principles, but in the ways of self-improvement.

在这里,不得不谈谈法轮功。法轮功作为一种修佛的方法,本身是没有错误的,修佛的方法有八万四千种,转法轮就是其中之一,老百姓喜欢法轮功这种修佛方法是很可喜的事,这就说明中国的老百姓是积极向善向上的,李洪志能够激发起大众向佛的热情,其功德是不可磨灭的,他和张宏堡都可以称为灵性大师。

Here we have to talk about the Falun Gong. As a Buddhahood exercise, Falun Gong is not wrong at all. There are 84,000 kinds of Buddhahood exercises, and Falun Gong is one of them. It is a pleasing thing that the people like Falun Gong as a Buddhahood exercise, which demonstrates that the Chinese people actively pursue goodness. LI Hongzhi has his merits because he has triggered the people’s desire for goodness. He, together with ZHANG Hongbao, can be called the masters of spiritual nature.

问题出在,把修炼方法混同为佛法,把法轮功上升为“法轮大法”,就违背了佛法。什么是佛法?释迦牟尼在《金刚经》中说:“所谓佛法者,即非佛法。”又讲:“如来说一切法皆是佛法。”“若人言如来有所说法,即为谤佛,不能解我所说故。”还讲:“不应住法生心。”这就明确地教导我们,要认识佛法,首先要放弃法,不能执着于法,无法之法才是佛法,有法之法不是佛法。法轮功是正确的,但“法轮大法”是错误的,因为执着于法,法就不是真正的佛法了。

The problem is that it has relabeled the Buddhahood exercise as the Buddhism and upgraded Falun Gong into the so-called Falun Great Law, which is a violation of the Buddhism. What is the Buddhism? In The Diamond Sutra, Sakyamuni said, “The so-called Buddhism is no Buddhism”, “Tathagata once said all laws are Buddhism”, “If some people say Tathagata has ever explained the Buddhism, they do not understand my words and are actually slandering the Buddha.” What Sakyamuni said has told us, to understand the Buddhism; we have to forsake the laws. The laws without laws are Buddhism and vice versa. Falun Gong is correct but the Falun Great Law is not. Because it focuses too much on the laws and its laws can not be Buddhism at all.

什么是法?法就是上帝管理宇宙和生命有效运行的秩序或客观规律,物理学中的公式、化学中的分子式、数学中的方程式、生物学中的结构式、生命学中的因果式等等就是法。一切法都是佛法,一切法都是由上帝设计创造的。

So what is the law? The law is the order or objective principle adopted by the Greatest Creator to govern the effective operation of the Universe and life. The formula in physics, molecular formula in chemistry, the equation in math, the structural formula in biology, and the casual schema in life science are all laws. All laws are Buddhism and are designed and made by the Greatest Creator.

李洪志大师2003年2月15日下午在洛杉矶美国西部法会上解法时说:“我用人的话讲明白了吧,法是我造就的。”

When lecturing in LA of US in the afternoon of February 15, 2003, Master LI Hongzhi said, “So do you understand? All laws are made by me.”

“史前所有的一切生命都是法造就的,谁也不例外,谁也都在其中。”“无量无计的大穹,无量无计的天体空间,每一个空间都有无量无计的生命,都是这法造就的,没有任何生命能够评论法。”

“All life in the prehistoric period was made by the laws without exception.” “The immeasurable and countless Universe, space, and celestial bodies contain immeasurable and countless life, which is generated by the laws. No life is positioned to comment on the laws.”

这就有点太离谱了。法本身是上帝创造的,现在李大师说法是他造就的,难道李洪志就是上帝?上帝就是李洪志?

He has gone too far. The laws are created by the Greatest Creator. But Master LI said he has made the laws. So can we conclude that LI Hongzhi is the Greatest Creator or the Greatest Creator is LI Hongzhi.

宇宙中只有一个上帝,要么是上帝,要么是李洪志,二者必居其一。

There is only one Greatest Creator in the world, either the One or LI Hongzhi.

假设李洪志就是上帝,那么,李大师具备唯一、无定形、中性、无明、公正、仁慈、超能、智慧这八大特征吗?

Let’s presume LI Hongzhi is the Greatest Creator. Does Master LI have the 8 features of being sole and only, amorphous, neutral, mysterious, fair, merciful, superbly powerful and wise.

人类是战胜不了上帝的,若李大师是上帝,“法轮功”能遭此劫难吗?连生养自己的土地上都生存不下去,怎么能把自己看成是上帝呢?

Human beings can never overcome the Greatest Creator. If Master LI was really the Greatest Creator, would Falun Gong have experienced such disastrous difficulty? How could he claim himself as the Greatest Creator even when finding it difficult to survive on his own motherland?

上帝无定形,上帝管理着整个宇宙,不可能以人的身份来到地球在夹缝中求生存,而李大师一开始就出生在人间,几十年来有清楚的历史档案,能是上帝吗?

The Greatest Creator is amorphous, governing the whole Universe and unable to survive, with difficulty, on the Earth in the form of human. And Master LI was born in the mortal world, which can be proved by his archives in the past decades. Can he be the Greatest Creator?

上帝从来就没有与人类进行过直接对话,而李大师与人类直接讲了多少话?

The Greatest Creator has never talked with the human beings directly. And think about the many lectures Master LI has given us.

上帝无明,是神秘的,而李大师的一切都明明白白、清清楚楚,能是上帝吗?

The Greatest Creator is mysterious. And we know about everything about Master LI. Can he be the Greatest Creator?

上帝通晓一切,李大师通晓一切吗?不要说科学家们提出几个问题回答不了,既是提出几个高中物理、化学、数学、生物等方面的问题,有可能也回答不了,能是上帝吗?

The Greatest Creator is omniscient. Is Master LI omniscient, too? He might not be able to answer the questions of physics, chemistry, math or biology for the senior high school students, not mention the questions raised by scientists. Can he be the Greatest Creator?

李洪志是一位灵性大师,对宇宙人生有独到的见解。但若超越一定的范围,必然会物极必反。

LI Hongzhi is a master of spiritual nature, having his own distinctive understanding of the Universe and life. But if he goes too far, he is sure to have problems.

人类中藏龙卧虎、大隐高士多的是,有些人深居简出,看似一介平民,实际拥有经天纬地之才,吞吐宇宙之志;有些人不言不语、貌似愚鲁,实际上智慧超群、目光如炬;有些人看似平庸无奇、愚昧无知,却深谙宇宙法则,生命真谛。他们就象“道”一样,深藏不露,但关键时候会力挽狂澜,扶大厦于即倒。

There are many wise men in the mortal world. Some live secluded, and some look like average. But they possess great capacity. Some people slow, but they have superb wisdom. Some look normal and ignorant but they are fully aware of the life essence. They hide their capacity, just as Tao is, but they are able to make great achievements at the critical time.

总之,上帝是公正的,每个人、每个组织、每个民族的兴亡盛衰都取决于上帝的天平。只有抛弃自我,才能看到上帝的公正,若凡事以我为中心,以自己的爱好和成败得失来认识上帝,无论横看还是竖瞅,不仅看不到上帝的公正,连上帝的边也摸不着。

All in all, the Greatest Creator is impartial.
The success or failure of an individual, organization, or nation all rely on the balance of the Greatest Creator. It is only by forsaking ourselves that we can see the impartiality of the Greatest Creator. If we attempt to understand the Greatest Creator by focusing on our own’s preference,success,failure, gain and loss, then we will never find this impartiality, or even a shadow of it.
