不退轉金輪手Mudra of the No-Back-Turning Golden Wheel

「若為從今身至佛身,菩提心當不退轉者,當於不退轉金輪手。」

If henceforth you attain the Buddha’s body and the Buddha’s mind.

You will turn in the wrong direction.

And will find guidance from the hand that prevents you turning in the wrong direction.

修行像登山

步步向上

是自己作主的道路

當生命的風雨突襲

心情的陷阱遍布

永遠要記住

不要停頓不要退步

不要留戀進進退退的人生舞步

一路向前才是勇者氣勢

Practicing Buddhism is like climbing a mountain –

You must scale it step by step

And be the sole master of your journey.

When the tempest and storms of life come blowing,

And you are in danger of being trapped everywhere by your emotions,

Remember to keep climbing and never retreat.

Remember not to linger over what is already past on life’s journey

Ever onward, for that is the courageous spirit.


【祝福】

如果我們燒開水,燒到五十度就停下來,讓它涼掉再燒到八十度,再讓它涼掉,這樣冷冷熱熱、煮煮停停,永遠也沒有煮沸的一天。如果我們登山,往上爬一段,就往下走一走,如此上上下下,恐怕很難登得了峰頂。

修行,或從事一切善行,最怕這樣冷冷熱熱、反反覆覆、上上下下,最好是一路精進、一心向上,不到峰頂,絕不退縮。不退轉金輪手是種祝福,祝福我們在修行及一切善行,都能一路精進向上,恆不退轉;不退轉金輪手也是一種提醒,讓我們的心像永遠向前轉動的金輪啊,努力向前走,別停頓、別倒退,永遠保持向前的姿勢。
