世界名人谈佛陀 (2)

人类的花朵

  这是我们人类的花朵
  久远以来,一直盛开
  绽放之后,智慧的芳香与博爱的淳蜜
  充满世界
                    ——
埃德温·阿诺德《亚洲之光》

Blossom of the Human Tree

  This is the blossom on our human tree
  Which opens in many a myriad years
  But opened, fills the world with wisdom's scent And love's dropped honey.
                 ~ Sir Edwin Arnold,"Light of Asia"

佛更贴近我们

  那众多神奇般的神话和传说的背后。我感到曾经有过这样一个人,一个清楚易见,纯朴诚实,默默为光明而奋斗的活生生的人,而非虚无缥缈的神祗。作为一个真实的人,他以那独到的思想广施普教、启迪人类。他的言教与我们现代许多杰出思想极为吻合。他告诫人类,生活中一切痛苦和不满足皆缘源于自私。自私有三种形式:第一,贪求感觉上的满足;第二,渴求长生不老、生命永恒;第三,追逐世俗的富贵奢华。人只有放弃那贪图个人私利的欲望,才能够彻底获得永恒与寂静。

  在基督出世五百年前,伟大的佛陀就曾以多种语言告诫人类应该“忘我”。佛陀在许多方面是如此的贴近我们人类,贴近我们的需求。佛陀比基督更为清楚明了人的个人奋斗的重要性;在“生命永恒”这种问题上,他毫不含混,模棱两可。
                               ——

Buddha is nearer to us

  You see clearly a man, simple, devout, lonely, battling for light, a vivid human personality, not a myth. Beneath a mass of miraculous fable I feel that there also was a man. He too, gave a message to mankind universal in its character. Many of our best modern ideas are in closest harmony with it . All the miseries and discontents of life are due, he taught, to selfishness. Selfishness takes three forms—one , the desire to satisfy the senses; second, the craving for immortality; and the third the desire for prosperity and worldliness. Before a man can become serene he must cease to live for his senses or himself.

  Then he merges into a great being. Buddha in a different language called men to selfforgetfulness five hunderd years before Christ. In some ways he was near to us and our needs. Buddha was more lucid upon our individual importance in service than Christ, and less ambiguous upon the question of personal immortality.
                             ~ H.G.Wells

至高无上者

  如果你想见到人类最崇高最伟大的人,看看这位穿着乞丐衣服的“国王”吧,他就是我们人类神圣而伟大,最尊贵的人。
                   ——
阿伯多尔·艾特赫(穆斯林诗人)

Most Noble of Mankind

  If you desire to see the most noble of mankind, look at the king in beggar's clothing; it is he whose sanctity is great among men.
                     ~ Abdut Atahiya, A Muslim Poet
