BUDDHA AND HIS DHAMMA IS PERMANENT


The way of home life
– Ethics



As a result, many
stories of moving deeds have been passed down to us. For example, there is the
story of novice Huixin’s mother, who encouraged him to work hard and strive for
Boodhahood and not for the glory bestowed by the emperor. There is also the
moving story of Dongshan Liangjie, who, in his letter of Farewel to My Mother,
indicated his resolve to seek the way. Altough his mother wept day and night,
she put aside her son and sent him a reply, encouraging him to cultivate
himself so that he might achieve awakenment.

 

In promoting filial
devotion, Buddhism not only promotes “filial piety”, “making offerings to
monasteries, and “respecting the practice of purification” as its teachings,
but it goes even further by stressing the importance of such deeds. “The
blessings accrued from caring for one’s parents are the same as those from
making offerings to the Buddha. Filial respect should always be on one’s mind”.
“Even if one were to carry one’s father on the left shoulder and one’s mother
on the right shoulder, so that one’s skin was pressed to the bone and through
the bone to the marrow, around Mt.Sumeru for countless kappas, until one’s
blood flowed and one’s ankles gave away. It would still be insufficient to
repay the kindness of one’s parents”. These examples are a clear indication of
how important filialness is in Buddhism.

A young Buddhist from Bangladesh residing in New York is getting
ordained by Ven. K. Piyatissa at the Srilankan Vihara at 214-22 Spencer
Ave in Parkside Hills, Queens, at 7-30 p.m. on Friday, May 29, 2009. He
is Mr Pranajit Kumar Barua, an IT professional working with a company
in Manhattan. The ordination ceremony is being attended by his parents,
his relatives and friends from New York, New Jersey, Virginia,
Michigan, Massachsettes and other States. Mr Pranajit Barua has invited
every one to kindly make it convenient to attend the ceremony on May
29, as well as the Sangha Dana he is arranging at Srilankan Vihara on
Sunday, May 31, at 10.00 a.m. For more information, please contact Mr
Nayan Barua on 347….
