堂走廊房間整修活動

歷時了一個月零十天的「三鶴道場禪堂大翻新」活動總圓滿的劃上了句點。從拆地毯、拆釘子、重刷油漆、安裝新地板。上至天花板下至地板,前至大門後至走廊。密密麻麻、大大小小的工程均在三鶴道場當家師父眾海法師及發心義工RON親力親為的帶領下,在日以繼夜,夜以繼日的工作中不知不覺的完成了「三鶴道場禪堂大翻新」。

為甚麼要重刷油漆和安裝新地板?因為三鶴道場禪堂的建築已有30多年的歷史,建築內部的油漆和地毯的歲數也接近30多年了,所以為了讓老舊的道場看起來窗明几淨,我們幫它漆上新的油漆和換上新的地板。

三鶴道場做出這種改變並不是只圖一時的美麗和享受。而是為了法得以遠流長。

法靠人才得以在現世宣講(僧才),然後靠組織制度(道場)才得以弘揚及流傳後代。否則不過曇花一現而已。

因此三鶴道場的重修工作其實其目的在於:在後來10年、20年、40年、甚至100年後都可以提供多元性弘法功能,以完成把佛陀DNA流傳下去而不至失落的使命。

三鶴道場的成立實屬不易,應天時、人願而成之。道場成立、道務宏展,讓有緣人受法益而得解惑,化解抑郁、焦慮及身心的痛苦。

因此我們疼惜它、利用它、贊助它、護持它、弘揚它,讓眾生得聞正法、真正的行法,從而解脫痛苦走向光明之路。

在此三鶴道場常住眾鄭重的感恩:

每一位身入道場積極參與及幫助三鶴道場裝修的義工,以及雖然因事務繁忙而無法參與翻新工程卻在遙遠的他方慷慨護持的功德主們。

沒有大家的護持又怎麼會實現一個能容納更多賢士入修、行功、了願、提高靈性生命的明亮道場呢?再次衷心感恩! 

特別鳴謝:

所有護持這持道場翻新的功德主

三鶴道場誠邀五十三位善財童子2019全年點燈供佛

「過去佛陀在世時,有許多傑出的弟子,他們的長處各有不同,例如舍利弗是智慧第一、目犍連是神通第一,而阿那律則是天眼第一,他能清楚的觀看到三千大千世界,連非常微細的地方都能夠看得很清楚。 阿難知道了,就問佛說:『世尊,請問阿那律前世有何因緣,使他今世能夠有如此的天眼呢?』 佛回答說:『在過去約九十一劫前,毘婆尸佛入涅槃後,那時阿那律是一個盜賊,他便到佛塔中去,想盜取財物。當他來到佛塔時,佛前的燈火已經快要熄滅了,他見了便趕緊以劍將燈蕊撥正,使燈火又恢復了光明。盜賊看著燈火,忽然感受到佛燈光明的威力,心裡不覺肅然起敬。他想,別人都願意拿物品來供佛了,我哪裡有偷盜的道理呢?因此,他就放下偷盜的念頭離去了。
