My Main Service

514,我的主要服务

I am happy to be back in Ukraine with my disciples. Guiding them in their spiritual lives is my main service to my own guru maharaja, Srila Prabhupada. I pray for the mercy to do this service well.

我真高兴能回到乌克兰和我的门徒们团聚。指导门徒的灵性生活是我对我的灵性导师圣帕布帕德履行的主要服务。我祈祷获得能让我做好这项服务的仁慈。

What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”

“你留给后人的,不是石碑上的铭文,而是对人类生活的改变。”

[Pericles - a Greek warrior and general, in a speech to the families of the Athenian war dead]

(伯利克里一希腊将军,勇士,他在对阵亡军人家属的演讲中讲述了上面的话)

 

 

Welcome My Lord!

514,欢迎我主!

Today I was sitting in my room in the temple in Dnipropetrovsk with devotees, planning out the festival for the appearance of Lord Nrsimhadeva on Monday. We were lamenting we didn’t have a Nrsimha salagrama-sila for the abhiseka ( bathing) ceremony on that auspicious day. Suddenly one of my disciples, who had just arrived, walked into the room and said he had a gift fo me. When I opened the box all of us were startled to see a large, beautiful – and very ferocious – Nrsimha salagrama- sila. His gaping mouth expressed His intense anger towards the demons; both past, present and future. He is the size of a closed fist – perfect for the upcoming abhiseka. The way in which He came, and the moment which He came, amazed us all. Such are the pastimes of the Supreme. Welcome, My Lord!

今天,我正和门徒们坐在我居住的聂伯罗皮的洛夫斯克庙里的房间里,为周一的主尼星哈戴瓦显现日的庆祝活动做着准备。可是,在这么吉祥的日子,却没有尼星哈圣石做沐浴仪式,我们为此悲伤不已。这时,我的一位刚刚到达的门徒突然走进我的房间说有个礼物要送给我。我打开盒子,所有的人都被这个礼物惊呆了,是一块巨大的,美丽的,形象凶恶的——尼星哈圣石!祂大大张开的嘴巴展示了他对恶魔强烈的愤怒,无论是过去,现在还是将来。祂有拳头般大小——用来做沐浴仪式简直是完美。他来到的方式和时间,使我们大家惊叹不已。真是主上演的美妙逍遥时光。我的主呀,热烈欢迎你!

vyoma dharaya ca vyoma
vaktrayasura ghatine
namas te vyoma damstraya
vyoma vasaya te namah

“I offer my obseisances unto Lord Nrsimha, who prevades the sky. His mouth is exspansive like the sky; He is the killer of the demons; and His teeth pierce the sky. He is the Lord who resides in the spiritual sky.”

“我虔诚的顶拜主尼星哈,他充满了整个天空。他的嘴好像天空一样广阔;他是恶魔的杀手;他的牙齿戳破了天空。他是居住在灵性天空中的主。”

 

 

The Extraordinary Glory of the Nrsimha salagrama-sila

515 尼星哈圣石的非凡荣耀

“A tulasi leaf offered to the lotus feet of the Nrsimha Salagrama -sila destroys the sin of murder. Water that has washed the lotus feet of the Nrsimha Salagrama-sila destroys the sin of theft. Foodstuff offered to the Nrsimha Salagrama-sila destroys the sin of drinking liquor. Sincere surrender to the Nrisimha Salagrama-sila destroys the sin of adultry with the wife of the spiritual master. Association with the devotees of the Nrsimha Salagrama-sila destroys the sin of offenses to the devotees. This is the extraordinary glory of the Nrsimha Salagrama-sila.”

向尼星哈圣石的莲花足供上一片图拉西叶子,圣石就能摧毁谋杀的罪恶。用来清洗圣石莲花足的圣水可以摧毁偷窃的罪恶。供奉给尼星哈圣石的祭余摧毁饮酒的罪恶。向尼星哈圣石真诚的臣服可以摧毁与灵性导师的妻子通奸的罪恶;与尼星哈圣石的奉献者联谊可以摧毁冒犯奉献者的罪恶。这就是尼星哈圣石非凡的荣耀。

[By Sri Agama, found in Srila Rupa Goswami’s, Padyavali]

(圣阿嘎玛,摘自圣茹帕哥斯瓦米的《Padyavai》)

 

 

Praying For His Mercy Today

516 今天我们祈祷得到祂的仁慈

“When Lord Nrsimhadeva saw the small boy Prahlada Maharaja prostrated at the soles of His lotus feet, He became most ecstatic in affection toward His devotee. Raising Prahlada, the Lord placed His lotus hand upon the boy’s head because His hand is always ready to create fearlessness in all His devotees.”

“当主尼星哈戴瓦看到小男孩儿帕拉德大君拜倒在他的莲花足下的时候,祂处于对奉献者的爱的狂喜之中。扶起帕拉德大君,主把祂的莲花手放在孩子的头上,因为祂的手时刻准备着使祂所有的奉献者都变得无所畏惧。”

[Srimad Bhagavatam, 7.9.5]

Moscow Tonight

517,莫斯科之夜

I am looking forward to my upcoming trip to Moscow. It has been over a year since my last visit. Devotees have arranged several big preaching programs and have also published a new book in Russian with my recent lectures about gaining entrance into the transcendental realm of Sri Vrindavan dhama.

我期待着即将到来的莫斯科之旅。距离上次到访莫斯科已经又是一年了。奉献者们安排了几个大型的传教节目,还把我最近关于臻达超然王国之门圣地温达文的几个讲座编撰成册,用俄语发行出来。

 

 

Growing Younger

518 越来越年轻

I gave the following class specifically for my disciples on the eve of our Vyasa Puja celebrations in Ukraine. I hope other disciples will take the time to hear it

维阿萨普加庆祝前夕,我给我在乌克兰的门徒讲了一堂课。我希望我其他的门徒也听听这节课。

 

 

My Glorious Master

519 我荣耀的导师

Last night I did a program at the Moscow Temple. Close to 1,000 devotees attended. After class we had an ecstatic kirtan for over two hours. I was remembering my first visit to Moscow in 1989 during the Communist days, when I gave class in secret to 14 devotees in an apartment near Red Square. We chanted very softly and I spoke in almost a wisper. How things have changed! It is all the vision of Srila Prabhupada who came to this country in 1971. All glories to my glorious master!

昨夜,我们在莫斯科庙里举行了节目。近1000位奉献者参加了节目。课后我们持续了2个小时令人狂喜的克伊尔坦。我回想起,1989年我第一次访问俄国的情形,那时俄国还是共产主义,我在一个红场附近的公寓里为14位奉献者秘密地上了一堂课。我们很小声的唱诵,我用将近耳语的声音讲课。看看现在,变化是多么大呀!这一切都是圣帕布帕德于1971年访问这个国家的时候的构想。所有的荣耀归于我荣耀的导师!

 

 

Words of Caution

521,谨言慎行

Yesterday so many wonderful vaisnavas sent me best wishes. I am very grateful. At the same time I reflect on the sober instructions of my spiritual master: “I am very pleased that you are doing nicely. But don’t be proud. Always remain humble, meek, that ‘I am nothing. I cannot…’ That will be nice. And if you think, ‘Now I have become liberated. I can chant and dance,’ No, don’t think like that. Just like even Caitanya-caritamrta author, he says … ” Jagai madhai haite muni se papistha: “I am more sinner than Jagai-Madhai.” In this way… it is not artificial. A Vaisnava must think like that, that “I am rotten. I have no value.” Don’t be proud. Then the things will go on nicely.”

[Srila Prabhupada lecture, SB 6.1.50, Detroit, August 3, 1975]

昨天,我从那么多优秀的外士那瓦那里获得了衷心的祝福。我感激之至。与此同时,我也在反省我的灵性导师给我的令人清醒的训示:“你做的不错,我很高兴,但是,你不可骄傲,永远都要保持谦卑,温顺,时刻能想着‘我是无名小卒,我不能……’ 这是好的态度。如果你认为,‘我现在已经解脱了;我可以唱诵,也可以舞蹈,’不可以,不要用这样的方式想问题。即使《永恒的柴坦尼亚经》的作者,他都这样说:“我比佳盖和玛岱还要罪恶。”只有这样,才不会虚伪。一位外士那瓦必须以这样的方式思考,“我是堕落的,我毫无价值。”请不要骄傲,只有不骄傲,事情才能向好的方向发展。”

(引自:圣帕布帕德在底特律的演讲,SB6.1.50 1975年8月3

 

 

Volcano!

525 火山

Resting in Warsaw for a day. Writing one of five diary chapters I have in my head. Praying that British Airways doesn’t cancel my flight to LA tomorrow because of the ash from the newly erupted volcano in Iceland.

在华沙休息一天,写下打好腹稿的5篇日记中的一篇,祈祷英国航空公司不要因为最近从冰岛火山喷发出来的火山灰而取消了我明天飞往洛杉矶的航班,

 

 

Save Ourselves!

527 自我救赎

I am eagerly looking forward to the 3-day festival in Dallas this weekend. There will be lots of nice association, Krsna-katha, prasadam and especially chanting of the holy names. Srila Prabhupada writes: “We should always remember the danger of maya’s influence and endeavor to save ourselves from her great power. We must therefore always merge in the transcendental mellow of kirtana-rasa, for kirtana-rasa is the safest situation within this material world.”

我热切地盼望本周末将在达拉斯进行的为期三天的节目,我们将有很多很美妙的联谊,奎师那卡塔,帕萨达姆,尤其是唱诵主的圣名。圣帕布帕德写道:“我们要时刻警醒玛亚的影响带给我们的危险,我们必须努力把自己从她巨大的力量中拯救出来。因此,我们必须总是把自己融化于克伊尔坦-茹阿萨的芳醇之中,在这个物质世界,处在克伊尔坦-茹阿萨中是处于最安全的状况。”

[Foreword, Songs of the Vaishnava Acaryas]

(《外士那瓦阿查瑞亚赞歌》前言)

 

 

Be Still Before The Lord

527,在主的面前,请平静下来

Suffering from severe jet-lag, I was having difficulty concentrating on my japa while chanting in front of my deities this morning in my hotel room. Frustrated, I stood up to walk and chant when I glanced at a Bible placed in the room by the Gideon Society. Curious, I leafed through it and soon found the following verse:

饱受时差之苦,今晨,在酒店的房间里,我无法集中注意力地在神像面前念诵。我站起来,试图边走边念诵,这时我瞟见了由Gideon社团负责摆放在酒店房间的《圣经》。我好奇的拿起《圣经》,很快发现了下面这个诗节:

“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently. ” [Psalms 37.7]

“请在主面前保持平静,并耐心等待。”

Reflecting on these words attributed to King David, I went back and sat in front of my deities, where I chanted very focused rounds for the rest of the morning!

反省着这些来自大卫王的文字,我回到我的神像面前坐下,非常专注的完成了今晨的念诵!

 

 

A Unique Gift to the World

2011528 为世界奉上的独一无二的礼物

“That nation shall endure forever whose people have entered the paths of self-control and worldwide sympathy.”

“当一个国家的人民走在自我控制及展现出对世界范围的同情之心的时候,这个国家就能持久的发展。”

[Colonel Francois Wayland Parker - 1837]

“海军上将:佛朗索瓦·韦兰·帕克,1837

I saw this faded quote on the wall of an old school in San Diego yesterday and immediately thought of India and how Srila Prabhupada desired the people of India to spread the science of Krsna Conciousness all over the world.

昨天在圣地亚哥一所老学校的墙上读到段已经褪色的文字的时候,我立刻想起了印度以及圣帕布帕德是如何渴望印度人民将奎师那知觉的科学传遍全世界的。

“The practical effect of our spreading the Krsna consciousness movement all over the world is that now the most degraded debauchees are becoming the most elevated saints. This is only one Indian’s humble service to the world. If all Indians had taken to this path, as advised by Lord Caitanya Mahäprabhu, India would have given a unique gift to the world, and thus India would have been glorified.”

把奎师那知觉运动传递到世界各地的实际效果就是,现在即便是最堕落的浪荡子也成为了最崇高的圣人。而这仅仅是一个印度人对世界做出的卑微的服务,如果所有的印度人都像主柴坦尼亚·玛哈帕布建议的那样朝这个方向努力,可想而知印度对世界做出的贡献将是多么的巨大,那么,印度将会由此而获得荣耀和赞美。”

[CC Adi-lila, 9.41 purport]

(《永恒的柴坦尼亚经》,阿迪丽拉,9.41要旨)
